THere was a discussion on the old forum about which hunt pack was good, better, best.....ect. I just got back from the archery elk hunt(skunked) and used the Eberlestock J107. Great pack...comfortable with lots of room and expandable. It has deep pockets for spotting scope/tripod. ect. It has a hydration pocket in the main pack and the detachable fanny pack. The main complaint I had was not enough 'little' pockets....for smaller stuff that you can get to right away. You basically have to stuff it into a larger pocket or the main pack and hope it doesn't shuffle to the bottom as you hike. Just an FYI for those looking for packs. Overall, I liked it and it was comfortable on my back all day long.
