Re: hunting pack
What happens with an Eberlestock when you get in any kind of trees, brush, etc. and your rifle buttstock is sticking out of the pack behind you well over the top of your head (First low branch...?) or the muzzle is sticking down below the level of your butt and you want to sit down?
I don't know Eberlestocks' that well, so I'm asking these questions--do you place your bloody quarters, etc. inside the pack bag to pack them out?
If you happened to see the elk of your dreams at 60 yds while wearing your rifle in an Eberlestock scabbard, how much time and movement is required to put that rifle in service? Will that animal still be there when you are ready to shoot.
I'm sure they are great packs...many folks like them, I just wonder about a couple of the features now and again and think that some folks considering new packs should consider the pros and cons certain designs might have.
