Eberlestock J107. Very well built pack, excellent harness, lots of storage options, and room for two water bladders. The rifle sleeve is very handy and can be easily accessed without struggling.
I shot a goat last year and had over a hundred pounds in my pack and climbed down about 2000' of vertical (including a 200' vertical wall) and then about 2 miles of very rough terrain without even getting tired shoulders...my legs on the other hand...my pack was drug on several rock outcrops and I went for one short slide, and it shrugged off the rocks very well.

I use Black's Creek. Check out their website or give them a call. The eberle also has a goo reputation.

I have an Eberlestock Gunslinger which is a large day pack. Love it.

I have used an Eberlestock Gunslinger the last 4-5 years. The second trip after packing a rifle for 10 hours for 3 days I put a Kifaru Gunbearer on the Gunslinger. Since that time I have only used the scabbard on the pack a couple of times. If you're a serius packer I'd take a look at the Kifaru and you can put it on any pack of your choice.

I have a J104, and like it alot. However, I would like to see a smaller dayback version, along the lines of Eberlee's mini me model, but with a waistband to help support the weight of the rifle. Maybe, I need to look closer at the gunslinger.
