CLOTHING & BOOTS
The Eberlestock X1E European model hunting pack is a simple, stout day pack with a built in rifle scabbard. If you prefer the simplicity and easy access of one or two large storage compartments, then the Eberlestock X1E European model hunting pack may be the pack for you.
The X1E European model hunting pack consists of one rectangular main compartment that can be split in half with a built-in velcro shelf creating separate upper and lower compartments. The top of the main compartment is a accessed with a long zipper on the top and sides of the pack which allows the front panel to be opened down to the half-way point for excellent access. The lower half of the main compartment is accessed with another long zipper on the front of the pack and, again, offers excellent access. The X1E offers a single horizontal compression strap to tighten down your load. As with all Eberlestock packs, there are many webbing points to attach to.
On the front of the X1E are additional upper and lower storage compartments which are sized well for organizing smaller gear items like range finder, knife, flashlight, etc. The lower compartment has an additional small slash pocket with a clip inside for keys, etc. On the sides of the XiE's main compartment are to sinch-top pockets that are good for carrying hat, gloves, etc. or can be used to carry water bottles. Stout handles on 3 sides make it easy to pick the pack up and especially to pull it out of your truck.
Rifle shown is a Long Range Rifles, LLC 6.5x284 with Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5-20x50 scope, 13-23" Caldwell bipod, 26" barrel.
The X1E's scabbard is built starting with the wide mouth military scabbard with a long verticle pocket sewn into one side creating a narrower scabbard still wide enough for large long-range rifles with large optics and a bipod. The bottom of the scabbard is not as wide as the military version so rifles must be carried muzzle-down. The bottom of the scabbard folds up and clips into the bottom of the pack when not in use allowing the top of the scabbard to be used as an additional storage compartment.
The X1E European model hunting pack is built using Eberlestock's NT-7 fabric which is waterproof and, like every other component of Eberlestock packs, extremely durable. Although quite substantial, the NT-7 fabric has a soft and quiet micro fleece exterior and remains supple and quiet in cold temperatures. Although the fabric is waterproof, the overall construction is described as "weather resistant". You may want to add a rain cover (optional accessory) for those extremely windy rains where the water can drive up, under and around the waterproof fabric.

The X1E's harness system uses a rigid frame sheet to provide stability and strength. It does not use additional aluminum stays like some of the larger freight-haulers (Dragonfly, Gunslinger). The back padding is substantial and offers excellent ventilation. The main pad section is adjustable to fit different torso lengths. The hip belt is stout and similar to that of the freight-hauler type packs.
