The 25L is designed for standard day hunting excursions when packing requirements are light to medium. Enough room to fit lunch, water, a jacket, ammo, etc. This is the perfect size for packing into camp, inside your big 75L bag, then switching it over for your daily hunting missions.
The profile has been shaped to be tall and shallow, so the weight is shared more evenly along the length of your back, and so when scrambling underbrush and branches there is less bulk sticking up to snag and catch.
The 25 houses a large main compartment with an internal water bladder pocket inside. It also has a mid-sized outer pocket that houses four internal pockets to organize smaller gear. Strong webbing bands have been added to the front face and bottom of the pack for additional gear attachment as well if required.
The pack body has an integrated rifle scabbard that can accommodate almost all hunting rifle lengths sizes and barrel widths up to that of a standard magnum suppressor. The scabbard is located at the back of the pack (closest to the frame/your back) to keep the weight closest to your spine and to minimize sway. The benefit of having two free hands in steep and challenging country can make a massive difference and should not be underestimated, particularly in open country when shots are less likely to be close-quarter surprises, and when overhanging branches are less of a hassle. When not in use the scabbard foot can be neatly tucked away back up inside the pack body.
It's available in two fabric options. First, the Desolve® Veil™ camouflage option is made from Hydrafuse™ StealthSHELL™ fabric which is softer and quieter for more close-quarter hunting scenarios where noise and stealth are priorities. Second, the Stone Green option is made from an extra-durable Cordura® fabric which is 2x more durable, and suited to a rugged open country where stealth is not as important but the ground it will be dumped on is harder and more abrasive.
A hidden, blaze orange, rain-cover is tucked away in a pocket at the bottom of the pack for when the weather sets in or when you want to be seen.
The 25L Arete Pack body is part of the Arete Pack System. It fits the interchangeable Arete Pack System Frame, this frame is required for use.
Available in Desolve® Veil™, Hydrafuse™ StealthSHELL™ fabric, or Stone Green Cordura® fabric.
