The Eberlestock X1E is an outstanding day pack with a larger scabbard built in capable of carrying large long range rifles with large optics. The scabbard is centered on the back for excellent balance.
The X1E features Eberlestock's Gossamar polycarbonate frame which is lightweight yet strong with just the right amount of flex. The shoulder straps are adjustable vertically for different torso lengths and are designed to be comfortable yet thin enough to shoot with the pack on. The waist belt is well padded and strong enough to handle a heavy load of meat or gear when needed.
The X1E's main compartment is just the right size for a day's worth of gear and can be split into an upper and lower compartment with a velcro shelf panel. The main compartment is accessible from the top and from the lower rear. The four zippered storage compartments are simple and sized well for various pieces of gear, so this pack offers enough organization for most hunters without being over complicated.
Single compressions straps on either side allow the pack to be cinched down tight depending on the size of your load and a single horizontal compression strap allows you to lash on extra garments or other items to the rear of the pack. A nice added touch is the three handles built into the pack making it easy to pick it up off the ground or out of the back of your truck. A hydration pocket is designed into the rear of the main compartment.
