With a wide array of shapes and sizes available, selecting the ideal hunting pack can be overwhelming. Let us simplify your pack search with our comprehensive buying guide, tailored to match your unique hunting needs.
The Arete is the pinnacle of hunting-specific packs, and can be used by every hunter, on every mission.
The Arete is a modular system, that allows you to change between packs with one single frame/harness. One frame, 3 possible packs: 25L, 45L, and 75L. Each pack is available in Desolve® Veil™ and Stone Green. Every pack configuration has an integrated meat shelf and rifle scabbard for hands-free hunting.
For fast and demanding hunts
Stay hydrated wherever the adventure takes you. The low-profile Fluid Pack makes it easier to keep you on the move. Designed for fast and demanding day hunts, this hydration pack is compatible with a 2L bladder and with additional cargo for holding extra layers.
For light day hunts
The Vertical Pack is a great little day pack. Big enough to carry lunch, camera, binos, and your jersey but small enough not to get caught up in the bush when pushing through tight scrub.
For all day pursuits
The Canyon is a perfect day-mission backpack. It's agile and silent through thick terrain, will carry all of your essentials, has a tonne of intuitive features, and includes a strong aluminium brace to support successful hunts on the haul out.
Hardcore day pack
The Boundary Pack is a premium day pack for the hunters who carry camera equipment, spotting scopes and heavy loads of meat. Alternatively, it can be run as a midsize, light overnight mission pack.
For multi-day excursions
For hunters embarking on multi-day excursions and ambitious hunts, the Summit Pack delivers the ultimate storage capacity and performance. Designed to carry everything you need for extended trips, this pack ensures you're fully equipped to dominate the elements, and carry out the reward of the months of preparation.
Overnight hunts generally require 35-65L packs, and need to accommodate a sleeping bag, tent, cooking supplies and extra clothing. Our Arete frame paired with the 45L Arete Pack is the ideal choice for this type of hunt.
Longer, multi-day excursions require 65L or more so you can carry additional food and supplies in. Our Summit Pack comes in 65L and 85L versions, and our Arete Frame paired with the 75L Arete pack has been cleverly designed for this type of hunt.
Our packs are made from water resistant materials, such as WaterTEC™ DRYstealth™ fabric (Vertical Pack), Hydrafuse™ StealthSHELL™ (Canyon Pack and Fluid Pack) or the Hydrafuse™ Drystealth™ HD fabric (Summit Pack). These advanced fabrics effectively repel light rain and moisture while staying quiet and strong.
All our packs (except the Fluid Pack) come with an included waterproof rain cover in blaze orange, to effectively waterproof your gear from heavier rain.
Cordura® is the industry leader in hardwearing, bomb-proof material. It is resistant to abrasions, tears and punctures so it’s ideal for using on open, rugged terrain.
You’ll see this fabric on our Arete packs in the Stone Green colour, and the base of the Desolve® Veil™ colour.
