J104 vs. J107

Which one ? Looks like the 104 is lighter with same storage abilities, but the 107 has a removable top storage which might make it a better daypack. Also what accessories does everyone use and like? I was looking at the spike camp duffle and double sided pack cover, anything else?
Last question-is it worth looking at the M3 with the 1000 denier material, but is not expandable?

I can't comment on the other packs -- but I have the 'military' version of the J107 in OD green. It has the 1000 denier and a "wider scabbard" option, which I got, to accommodate big scope + bipod. I really like it. I got the kit for the military version, which comes with two hydration bladders, a spike duffel, and the rain cover. Works great for me.

IIRC, one big difference between the two packs is that the frame of the J107 is more adjustable....

Hope that helps a little.

i've heard the gun scabbard isn't in the middle of the pack, but off to one side. is that true and if so does anyone know why?

FYI. -- The same space on the other side of the pack holds a hydration bladder (in my J107).

I imagine it would be a bit more difficult to retrieve the gun if it was directly behind your head -- though I can't say whether that is their logic.

I am surprised at only getting 2 responses to my question about Eberle pack. Surely, there are more users of these backs on this site.

I was hoping for more results as well. I know I'm leaning towards the J104 personally having tried both on.
