Re: J104 vs. J107

I have a J104 and my rifle with bipod attached fits easily including my large Nightforce scope.

Re: J104 vs. J107

I have to say that even my x1a1 will accept my rifle with bipod attached. I will add though, that I am tall and have long arms, so I can reach back and guide the bipod into position while I slip the rifle in.

As far as j104 vs. j107 I would have to say that you should try them both on under weight. Everyone fits differently with a pack, and subtle differences can make or break whether or not you enjoy your new pack.

Re: J104 vs. J107

i had the 104 for 2 hunting seasons. packing weight, up to 100 lbs lead shot or an elk quarter with backstraps the 104 "pulled me over backwards" something terrible. never got it adjusted right for it to work for me. I bought a blacks creek alaskan. half a caribou, most of a deer, 2 elk front shoulders, that thing works for me like a dream. doesnt pull me backwards, but no good place for my rifle, biggest thing i miss,,,

Re: J104 vs. J107

I can't say that i have heard of the "black creeks alaskan", i'll have to check them out. Although I don't think i could live without the scabbard.
It may just be me, but I seem to wear my packs somewhat high, and tight. I seldom have a problem with them wanting to pull back at me, but sometimes, no matter what, to much is to much. No matter what pack is used.
