Hunters beware: there's a new pack on the market, and it's the cream of the crop... especially when you consider the price you can get it for. There are a lot of features crammed into the Traverse. For starters, let's talk about its modular design. It can hold your bow or gun in the expandable pocket. It can haul out meat, decoys, or extra gear in the "hauling mode." It has a pocket designed specifically for carrying and protecting your spotting scope. In addition to all these great features, it has 2 easy access pockets on the waist belt, a large main compartment, a side pocket, internal pocket, and 2 front wing pockets. If you still need room, there are side compression straps to attach even more gear.

The Traverse has a top-of-the-line "H" frame design and multi-layer foam waist belt with a PE outer layer that will make the perfect combination to carrying heavy loads comfortably. Add in the adjustable torso range and this pack has the suspension system every hunter seeks when hauling out an animal or other heavy loads. The unique "H" frame design is made of strong, but lightweight, tubular aluminum. For a pack, the key to carrying weight comfortably is to have a strong frame and a rock-solid, adjustable suspension, and that's exactly what the Traverse has, making it one of the most advanced internal-frame packs in the industry.

Great For Saddle Hunting

I bought this to carry my sticks and platform for saddle hunting. By far the best pack I have found for the job. It has plenty of space for everything during cold weather and compresses down well for warm weather.

great pack!!!

I love this pack and would recommend it to anyone. I used it this past season in packing off a mule deer off a mountain side, along with an antelope off the parie. It held up good. There is plenty of room for many things depending on how you want to load it up for your daily adventure. I like the vented meat area. Great idea. Its a pretty comfy pack.....I hiked in and out, up and down many miles and it did the trick. Cant wait to use it again this year!!


Like one other review on here it does make a creaking noise. Also the zippers are extremely loud. I did not feel like I could use the zippers in the field without spooking any nearby animals.It feels pretty dern good. Even loaded down. However the first day I used it I helped a friend quarter and pack out an elk. Not sure if it was designed for all the wait but a strap broke and the mesh tore under the weight in two places. Decent pack just not designed for much weight.
