The 75L is designed for full pack-in, backcountry, multi-day excursions. This large pack will carry all the gear needed for a camp setup including your tent, sleeping bag, food, protection layer for them when you place your pack down on its front or rub it up against branches and scrub. In addition, two Auto-lock buckles and straps allow you to quickly lock the gear in place.
The main body pocket has a full-length zip that allows you to access top-to-bottom gear easily without having to fish through everything from the top down. This main compartment includes a large zippered accessory pocket for gear organization storage of a water bladder. There are also an additional 6 accessory pockets in the two front compartments and two upper pockets on the hood for fast access to any other necessities. Finally, two water bottle pockets are equipped on the lower sides. The extendable top-loading hood design allows you to adjust the capacity and height of the pack easily depending on what you are carrying.
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) in order 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-quarters 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.
