Re: Eberlestock Packs - Welcome New Sponsor
Len I currently have a gunslinger and I adore it, At that time they did not have the dragonfly out. I personally would go for the dragonfly as it has the capacity to expand to carry a lot more stuff. I use the gunslinger for just about everything but I need a bigger pack for longer pack in trips.
I would like to pick up a skycrane or a dragonfly in the near future. I jump shoot ducks in the week and try and varmint hunt on the weekends. I have put some serious mileage in the last 8 months on the gunslinger. My wife doesn't mid me cougar hunting on the weekends as long as we hike at least 10 miles for our cardio and the pack makes it possible.
I would like to not have to switch over mid week and gut the pack and fill it with my waterfowl stuff. I am always coyote hunting with my duck calls and vice versa. It would be nice to just to have two packs. I have oogled a skycrane and Its monstrous, a couple buddies of mine want to Hike the AK peninsula from Chignik lake to port Moler and we would be getting skycranes to facilitate a trip that long.
The packs are a little on the heavy side but I really don't mind it. It beats the heck out of the noisy crap My old REI pack was made out of and its great to pack the rifle in the scabbard.
