I do a fair bit of woodland stalking with sticks and a bit on the hill without. I hate bipods with a passion, they are heavy, ugly, noisy, but when you want to get prone very useful. I recently found a very nice narrow back pack that doesn't constantly try to push the rifle off your shoulder and is just about big enough to take a spare fleece and other bits of garb you end up taking out.
The thought was, and your feedback would be appriciated, would there be any interest in a narrow backpack with a front rest built into the bottom of it, allowing you to ditch the bipod yet always have a good prone rest at hand?
Please tell me if you think I'm off with the fairys.
