Thread: Rucksack

  1. #1

    Rucksack

    Any recommendations for a hardy rucksack that will hold enough gear for a day on the hill plus allows you to carry a rifle without too much interferance from the sack or the straps. I use a camelbak just now but the straps are padded and allow the rifle sling to slip and are noticable when mounting the rifle.

    I'd have a look at the more technical climbing sacks - they tend to be narrower and without side pockets and also lightweight so minimal padding - have a look in your nearest climbing/outdoor shop or check out somewhere Tiso or Snow & rock online

    Try an Army one mate from your local surplus store, also loads on Flea bay.

    Ive just bought one of these and im very pleased with it - doesn't look out of place with a rifle on your back like some more modern ones do.

    Cheap as chips, very good quality, comfortable.

    This is what you need.

    The only draw back is I can bet you that while you have the rifle in the scabbard the stag of a life time would come out in front of you and by the time you have got your rifle out it has done one.

    I have been considering one of these for a while as I have on occasion been on ground where it has been quite a walk before you get into deer territory if that makes sense. Think I will get the one they have just brought out which is day pack size at some point for when I might use it.

    Consider one of these in conjunction with a day pack that suits your needs!



    I have used them as a belt mount - also on the waist strap of a daypack when struggling up hills in Norway and Canada. Excellent kit that weighs nothing, but is flexible enough to match to your needs on the day.

    Ignore the safety strap, the unit can be moulded to the rifle and is completely secure. The strap only comes into its own when riding quads etc.

    UK cost was around 20

    Many European roesacks have a large leather "button" stiched onto each shoulder strap for the purpose of preventing the rifle sling from slipping off the shoulder. I would think that, plus maybe a sticky rubber "patch" in the appropriate place on the strap would pretty much cure the problem..

    Got that one also,
    nothing wrong with it.
    I use it just as a gear bag, so that nothing
    is left at home. Don't take it stalking.
    In the army they put a sand sack into it and let us run
    25 km. The rucksack looked better than us afterwards.
