Bowhunting day pack

I went back a few years in this thread looking for ideas on a new backpack for this archery season. Been carrying a Walmart special for the last few years and I want to upgrade.
Any suggestions?
I like the way the Tenzing TZ4000 and the Eberlestock X2 look.

Re: Bowhunting day pack

I've been using an unlined fleece pack from Day One Camo for about ten years. The design is very simple but well thought out. I liked my first one so much, I bought a second one a few years ago. Nothing is quieter in cold weather!

Went to a Badlands pack that weights only 1lb-13 oz. They now sell it as the "Pursuit" pack. Under $100.00. Plenty of organization pockets, very light- very durable.

Wishing I was at camp!

Re: Bowhunting day pack

I've had an X2 for about 5yrs now and its been a good pack. My only gripe is that even brand new it wasn't waterproof like advertised. The company won't stand behind that claim either.

Re: Bowhunting day pack

Ive been using a small fieldline fanny pack and a red head deer trail day pack for years. Both were cheap and have held up pretty well. My only gripe is there isnt enough pockets to keep things separated. Recently i was looking on ebay and they had a tenzing tc 720 fanny pack listed for 34.99 and free shipping. Tenzing ranks right up there with badlands imo. They nornally retail for around 100 bucks so for 35 i decided it was worth it to try it out. Man was i pleased when i got this thing. 9 pockets, 720 cu inches, cinch straps for securing extra gear, and very well built. Best 35 bucks ive spent in a long time. Cant wait to use it. They still have some for sale if you guys want to check it out. Sellers name is camofire.

Re: Bowhunting day pack

Don't have any recommendations for a particular product. However, I like one that is light weight, sturdy and has plenty of secure zip up pockets, so I can separate my gear to be stored and put back in the same pockets each time, allowing me to be able find and put away everything in total darkness.

I have a very good one now; however, it is much heavier than I would like. It is also waterfowl camo; however, the deer have yet to notice.

Before that I purchased a cheap after school/on sale back in dark grey; it worked very well, but the zippers soon failed.

Re: Bowhunting day pack

I have been using the same American made pack I bought in the early 80's. I got it from my dad's archery shop at the time and I can't find a name on it. I am also thinking about getting a new one. A couple I have been looking at is the Badlands SuperDay and Diablo.

The older I get the better I was.

I like the HornHunter packs. They are made in the USA and have a lot of models to chose from.
