Default Day Pack Recommendations

I'm looking for a decent day pack. Something that I can attach a rifle or bow to and walk a ways. Comfortably.

I have no idea where to start looking.

Thanks

Ordered a tenzing and took it to WY for my elk hunt. Really liked it a lot.

Mystery Ranch has several, Kuiu, Eberlestock x2, tons of good day packs out there. If you want to be comfortable hauling meat, it narrows the field a little.

I forgot them. They’re running sales right now. So is Badlands.

Tired of buying Walmart packs. Was thinking about getting a new one while in the blind today. Looking forward to the feedback. Thanks for posting!

Spent a lot of time under mystery ranch and eberlestock packs carrying a rifle. I highly recommend both of these companies.


Sierracharlie out....

If you think you might ever do a backcountry hunt, even if you plan to base camp, I’d get a Western style pack with a frame and separate bag. Many good brands mentioned already.

I have the KUIU 1850 and use it for everything now. Easy to put a climbing stand in the meat shelf, and I quartered out a doe I shot way back in a swamp and packed it out in one trip. Beat the buck I drug out of there by a long shot.

I used that same pack for my first week long elk hunt with camp carried in a dry bag in the meat shelf, but the last one I bought a 5500 bag and put it on the same frame and suspension.

I have a Kifaru 22 mag for day trips and 44 mag when I need the extra gear. I also have interchangeable pouches. It is incredibly comfortable, durable, and well thought out. If you go Kifaru, id recommend going with one of their frames plus pack. That way you can change out packs as you'd like. I originally bought a cheaper pack and upgrading to Kifaru was some of the best money I've spent western hunting.

I realize this is an old post, but I would run from a Mystery Ranch. I have converted two people from MR to Stone Glacier. Stong Glacier you buy the (rather expensive) frame, and a pack with it. The frame fits all the packs. So you can swap a 6000CI pack for a 2000 CI pack. The packs are much cheaper than the frame.

Tons of versatility in Stone Glacier, and made in America (Mystery Ranch is made overseas). Worth the up front cost.

Badlands Day Pack or Super Day Pack depending oh how much you want to carry. I have both. Take the regular day pack on my white tail hunts and the super day on elk and mule deer hunts.
