    Default Back pack? What kind

    What kind of back pack do you use and why do you like it? Or what would you look for in a back pack?

    As you all can see I am getting ideas to help me so I can be ready and make sure I am up to the hunt with all of the right gear.

    Thanks for all of the help I do appreciate it.

    Do you mean like a quiver or for other supplies or a combination quiver-pack?

    I use a Primos Bowhunters Vest......plenty of pockets for everything also has a really cool slot in the back where your safety harness goes thru.....so your the back of you shirt and jacket are not pulled down by your life line.......No noisy zippers and everything is always in short reach of your hands.....
    I cut things up and split them down!

    I use a small day pack, I don't even know what brand I've had it for so long. The thing that I would look for is some thing with compartments... My pack can be a pain cause you have to dig for stuff. I think my next set up I'll try those Summit leg packs, I hear alot of good stuff about them.

    In all honesty I just use a normal EASTPACK backpack that is forrest green. Had it when I started and just keep using it. I would like to get a vest like bowman is talking about I get a little frustrated sometimes especially when I have my climber on my back my bow in one had and the pack in the other sometimes it just seems like too much

    I use a Fieldline day pack that has a removable fanny pack that zips to the bottom. I use that and 6 pocket Walls cargo camo jeans. The combination works good for me and is not too heavy to haul up to a stand with a rope.

    Oh man, I don't know if I want to say this but Bowman that is a good idea I never really thought about strapping it to my climber, have always just put the climber on my back grabbed my stuff and I was gone.

    he us just humoring you.

    Only issue with strapping on your stand is how do you get to it? you have to take your stand off, put it on the ground, then get what you need out and then put the stand back on... its a huge PITA.

    I perfer the thigh packs because of easier carrying, I used to use a fanny pack and wear it in front but the stupid thing never stayed in place.

    btw - when I get up in the tree I strap my pack to the tree for easy access

    Me too. I sewed a bunch of my old military patches all over it, sewed a pouch in it to put a camelback water bladder in, and I'm good to go. I also wear a leafy, long sleeved, turkey hunting vest/jacket thing with a bunch of pockets.
