Thread: Harkila Blaiken Hunting Pack ?

    Harkila Blaiken Hunting Pack ?

    anyone got or used one of these? not cheap but looks like it would be nice, small and light on my long walks! , and save having a massive Roe Sack when most of the time I don't need one .

    Thread resurrection.....Anyone got views on these compared to a Fenja sack?

    Any slings which work nicely with this?

    Cheers

    The Blaiken is a back pack and the Fenja is a rucksack. The main difference is that the Blaiken is designed for active hunting

    I do a lot of walking and really do not like being cluttered up with gear. so I went with the Harkila it worked really well for me and when there is no Roe in there its very small and light..

    Sound good. Any views on whether a 3 HGR Light or Niggeloh Titan 2 sling would work well with it? Cheers

    Blaiken

    That looks ideal.
    Is it nice and strong around the straps etc? Thinking about when getting snagged up in dense fir trees.
    Are the zip pockets accessible whilst worn? Contemplating putting a javelin bipod in pocket.
    Cheers!

    Used the Blaiken in the Scottish hills. Great for having water, gloves, knives and so on in it when stalking. Really lightweight. With a deer in it I think it feels fine on the shoulders. I had no problem with it.. Easy to clean also and dries really quick..

    Good to hear, ordered one from Swillington. Seems ideal for me on paper

    My 2 cents on the Fenja: avoid it.
    I have one, aside from the backpack which is great, the inner lining is poorly designed. It is made from waterproof material (PVC lined heavy duty black liner) but has the largest seam right at the bottom of the bag and is unsealed! This has resulted in blood leaking through the lining and the bag on longer carcass retrievals (2 miles+). And Harkila insist that the bag "was never sold as waterproof" so refuse to repair the lining / seal properly. A pity as aside from this - it is a great product.

    that is a poor response from Harkila.
