Hey guys, I'm looking for a new pack! I currently have one similar to the one in the photo and it does work great, super comfy even when fully loaded, but I've made a recent addition which has left me scratching my head a bit on a new one.I decided to get a Boreal 22" folding saw, very happy with it, but it doesn't fit in my pack. I understand I could strap it to the side, but I'd rather everything fit into it because I don't like having extras that can get snagged up, or worst fall off and maybe not even notice.I'm looking for a 22" H pack, needs to be super durable for backwoods hiking. I'm not looking for the full on trek packs, honestly I like my current 17 1/2" as it does everything else I need with comfy fit. >Recommendations for a solid 22" H pack???
>>1514782Frame or no frame?
>>1514785I'd prefer no frame, but I would be open to it so long as it's not a huge pack, which seems to be any framed pack.
I'm considering this >Kelty RedwingIt's exactly a 22" pack, although I'm just not 100% on the material of the pack.
>>1514793Yea small bags don't need them. I don't have any day packs, but this is what I'm going to buy after I find a new car...https://www.amazon.com/ALPS-OutdoorZ-Dark-Timber-Hunting/dp/B008ZXKZ2M/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?keywords=day+packs+lightweight&qid=1557844370&s=gateway&sprefix=day+pa&sr=8-5I have an ALPS Outdoors, framed pack and love it. Great quality and comfort, so I'd recommend the brand in general.
>>1514799Looks nice, but it's only 15" H, I'm looking for something 22" H
>>1514804This one's 25", and you could use the rifle sleeve for the saw or some fishing poles if you don't carry a rifle.

>>1514808>>1514809Not him, but I gotta say, that's a neat pack.However, am I the only one who finds rifle sleeves/pouches to be pretty much useless?
>>1514810 I agree, I don't like things dangling off me
>>1514810My frame pack has one, and if I'm not hunting I put 2 fishing poles in there. It just depends on what you like to do /out/. This brand is specifically for hunters, so most of their stuff will have a place for a rifle or handgun holster.
This ones 21", I'm thinking it could work, would have to possibly angle the saw a bit in the pack.https://crazyants.net/products/military-tactical-backpack-3-days-45l-waterproof-pack-outdoor-gear-for-camping-hiking-black-l
>>1514811I mean, items that are too long for the pack itself, I've always just hung from the external compression straps. Don't know what I'd do with an actual rifle, though. I'd probably still not use it for whatever reason.
>>1514812https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GQF866M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1This rod easily fits in most any pack and is surprisingly sturdy
>>1514813These "assault pack" types of backpacks are really fucking neat if you can pack them properly.
>>1514811It doesn't dangle. It's straped on and has a butt holder. It's pretty stable.
>>1514814Understandable, but I'm just looking for something a little bigger without going flow blown trek pack.
>>1514812I never carry a gun /out/, but I do use some "military" backpacks. I find that the pockets that were originally intended for AR-15 magazines are perfect for maps and the like.
>>1514821Nice. When my brother got out of the Marines he gave me a bunch of his gear, and I use it like this. He gave me a ammo belt that's perfect for a knife, map, and my tobacco.
>>1514823Yeah, military equipment can be fucking great. Still don't understand why it gets so much hate.
>>1514826Because people here don't like others enjoying themselves. But the one thing for me is the military definitely doesn't care about comfort, most of this stuff rubs in all the worst places.
>>1514828Oh, yeah, that's for damn fucking sure. Comfort is not the #1 priority. I've found that I just have to pack way lighter than I normally would, so now, I'm basically running with this weird-ass military-ultralight kit. Still kind of comfy, though.
>>1514830Nice, I've started cutting pieces of camp pad foam and taping that on the the places that rub.
>>1514826The other reason is it stands out like a sore thumb, a lot of times people prefer something that blends in better.
>>1514842>Camo stands out too much
>>1514842>>1514843>camo stands out too muchYeah, it does, in civilian environments. I like the military shit exactly because it doesn't stand out too much in a woodland environment. Now, I don't have a whole lot of equipment that actually has camo patterns, but I do have a bunch that's just plain OD green. Which works fairly well.
>>1514856I'd also like to add that I've actually lost my fucking camp a few times because of that, so it does have its downsides.
>>1514856What do you mean by civilian environments?
>>1514859Lmao, that sucks man. I've been paranoid about that too.
>>1514860Towns, cities, etc. Bad wording on my part, sorry about that.
>>1514856>>1514826>>1514828>military-ultralight kit>blends in>civilian environments.ITT: Maximum airshit larp.
>>1514865>animuAre you expecting to be taken seriously, sir?
>>1514867>Are you expecting to be taken seriously, sir?The irony of that coming from some retard running around the woods in full camo playing army man.
>>1514868I don't, do that, though.
>>1514871Draws too much attention in the civilian environments right?
>>1514863Why are you carrying it through cities? Like to resupply?>>1514865What?>>1514871I think he's just an angry week trying to stir shit up. These people don't go /out/
>>1514873Why would I care about that if I'm innawoods?I don't own any camo clothing.
>>1514782What's the point of purchasing a bag with MOLLE if you're not going to attach shit to the outside?
>>1514875>Why are you carrying it through cities? Like to resupply?Nah, where I live, there's a really nice area that has a bunch of interesting plant life that pretty much requires me to walk through the center of town. And that area itself is a fairly popular hiking spot, so to speak. Lots of foot traffic, etc.
>>1514875>Like to resupply?>>1514877>not me lolJust gets worse.
>>15148840/10 troll less get /out/ more.
>>1514886Just becouse I don't larp in camo doesn't mean it doesn't count when I go out.
>>1514887What's the point in trolling if you have to try this hard? If you just want to argue about retarded shit, I think you'd have better luck on Reddit.
>>1514887>trying to troll when you're this dense
>>1514890Your lack of self of awareness makes it easy when you unironcly start talking about shit like civilian environments and blending in.
>>1514892You obviously haven't been paying attention.
>>1514894You kind of have to in order to do direct quotes. But with larpers like you guys it's easy since your so unaware you just blast out huge red flags like civilian environments being of some concern when choosing a pack.
>>1514902Seeing how hung up you are on the whole "civilian environments" thing, no, you haven't been paying attention. Fuck off, retard.
>>1514906This is a really weak attempt at backpedaling when the post that mentioned it was talking about blending in.
>>1514910>This is a really weak attempt at backpedalingNot really. Read the whole thread, and you'll see.
>>1514915>Yeah, it does, in civilian environments. I like the military shit exactly because it doesn't stand out too much in a woodland environment.Back pedal a little harder, bub.
>>1514919You're a shit troll.
>>1514915Why do you keep falling for this retards bait? Ignore him and he'll go away like the class rertard he is.
>>1514881Because the pack itself is durable, and you can attach things via some method to any pack. The question was a 22" pack.
>civilian environmentbwahahathe larp is unreal
What do you guys think about the Maxpedition Gyrfalcon?https://www.maxpedition.com/products/gyrfalcon-backpack?variant=28155149393
Anyone got any recommendations for a pack that I can use for thru hiking as well as big game hunting out west? (USA)I need to be able to throw my bow as well as a rifle on it for hunting. Looking for around 65-70 liters, type 1 diabetic so I need extra room for insulin and snacks.
>>1515490https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/us-army-surplus-molle-ii-main-field-pack-with-frame-used?a=2194048Wore this for a while, now that OCP is the new standard these are going pretty cheap. You can fit a lot in the main pack, and the sustainment pouches on the side fit more than you think. I fit an m4 between the molle and the sustainment pouch lretty well, so id suppose your rifle would do alright. The team helped for longer treks, and the emergency straps make it super easy to drop at a moments notice.
>>1515443Much like your stupidity.
>>1514810Would be super useful since horses are so darned expensive in this gay timeline
>>1515803Meh, horses are for homos.
>>1515803Here in KY you can buy a horse for $20, no joke.
>>1515844Is that in 2019 dollars or 1845 dollars?
>>1515851KY is permanently stuck in 1845. But yes for the outside world 2019.
>>1515873That makes sense.
>>1514799I've thought about getting one of their hunting packs. They look solid>>1514782I'm bought to buy an sog 17.5 inch backpack. Good colors and warranty and still cheap as all the other random chinese crap out there
>>1515919I have the hunting one with the extra meat carrier. Love it.
>>1515490Look for vertical slim profile style ruck. Good hip Belt and some internal frame structure is a must. You don't need cordura 1000D, go for used milsurp nato stuff.
I want a pack that looks like pic but is affordable.https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10602781
This thread reads like a schitzo with multiple personality disorder.I'm military, and I have tons of awesome issued gear.But if I bought a backpack today, it would be an Oakley Kitchen Sink.
>>1517845Do you operate? Recommend me some literature please.
>>1517845Looks good, and I'm finding some good prices. But those straps do not look comfortable.
>>1518766Sylvia Works With Dirt, by Jeff White
>>1515490I suppose Seekoutside makes packs that fit that description, they hold a lot and have an external frame while still being very lightweight so they're still suited for something like a longer hike but they're also pretty expensive.
