Mr Eberle told me the 107 was more adjustable in height and could be made to fit people better that are above 6-1" or shorter than 5-9".

i just received a 104 and can say i've never had a pack feel as comfortable.

I just got my j107 hunting kit and this thing looks awesome,cant wait for deer season to try it out.the xl belt is plenty big enough for a 44" waist and the chest strap has plenty of room after adjusting for a 56" chest. I have never owned a pack like this, if anyone has one of these and could give me any tips on how to adjust the internal stays to fit my back that would be great

I received my J107 today as well. It will take some time to figure out how to adjust it and get the gear organized! While at first glance the mouth of the scabbard seems a bit small for a large scope w/target turrets and bipod, I have not tried to fit one in it.

I wish that it had a short 1 or 2 page pamphlet on how to adjust it, and what all the pockets, pouches, etc., were designed for.

motrapper: If you get a chance, could you measure the mouth of your scabbard and post it? I'm curious to see what the difference between the two are.

Re: J104 vs. J107

Well guys, I'd not use the J104 for anything but a daypack capibale to haul meat. As far as a Backcountry pack on say a 5-9 day trip the J104 is horrible. The older J105's and the J107 are far superior for hauling a heavy load.

They really aren't compariable.

I David Long's Public Land Mulies, he gives a decent description of properly loading and adjusting backpacks. Pages 172-181 if you want to flip through it at the the book store without buying the book.

And on the packs, my wife and I (as well as most of the people I hunt with) have the J104 and are very pleased with it. Ebrelestock makes some very good equipment. And I take the bipod off when I put the rifle in the scabbard, I can't remember if it actually fits or not but it seemed like it would be a pain in the ass trying to get the rifle+bipod in and out, so if I need the bipod I just put it on when I need it.....otherwise I just lay the rifle across the pack.
