hunting pack

hey guys,
I want some good recommendations on packs. let me tell you a little about what i want to do.

i've used a fanny pack for a long time, but it's worn out and being held together with duck tape and para cord. I've been looking at packs, i would really like another fanny type pack with suspenders and maybe a way i can convert into more of a back pack if need be. this looks sort of like what i'm looking for RedHead Hybrid Hunt Packs

but i would like a larger fanny pack. a hydration system would also be nice for when i'm stalking. i usually hunt all day so i use it to carry my lunch, extra ammo, water and emergency supplies. i hunt in hilly country in mississippi, alabama, texas and swamps in louisiana. also going to Colorado in the near future and hopefully

Check out Blacks Creek packs. The All - American may be just what you're looking for.

Re: hunting pack

I use one like this for my small pack.

Fieldline

I absolutely love mine. There's lots of straps to hang layers off as you adjust to temperature changes. There's plenty of room for anything that fits in the fanny pack. The hydration pack fits in really nice. The chest and waist straps keep it in place when running and it has a profile that easily fits within the width of the shoulders to make moving through trees and brush easier to do without snagging.

If you still wanted a little of the accessibility of a fanny pack, I've seen detachable pouches like the MOLLE web gear style that could be attached.

It's not as versatile as the one that you've posted, but this would be a good replacement for a fanny pack. It will hold all of the things you listed and has the hydration pack. It's truly amazing how densely they can be packed!

I'll see if I can scare up some pics of mine.

Re: hunting pack

Check out the Black's Creek Westerner, Canadian, or Alaskan. All these are great packs. Their website has more packs also. You also might want to check out the Eberlestock site.

Re: hunting pack

Check out Badlands Packs in my experience they are the best and have the best warranty out there. The monster sounds like something you might be interested in.
