Re: Military Packs for Hunting?

Eberlestock packs are nice, not all are the same. Especially when carrying a heavy load. I used a Gunslinger 2 to haul a Barrett and a manpack radio up a steep mountain once...and I mean once! That pack is not made for heavy loads.

I did use my large molle to pack out a deboned elk a week ago, handled it like a champ. I was the weak link in that chain.

Nice point for sure. What about any of the larger EbS? I have aGS2 as well but have never loaded it down like you say.

Re: Military Packs for Hunting?

I have 2 old large ALICE packs with steel frames. I dont use them for hunting just training. I got them for my self for 25$ a peice on ebay. THe new issue pack SUCKS ASS! Its very uncomfortable and ACU is a big joke. The old pack worked just fine and it carries a lot of gear but you have to know how to pack.

Re: Military Packs for Hunting?

I have a couple of the old Army packboards. I replaced the canvas that went against your back with a mesh and put good straps and waist belt on them. I have packed all sorts of heavy stuff on them over the years. for meat, lash on the game bag with the side hooks and go. Old school but it works. I got my first one over 50 years ago and still use the same style.
