Hunting packs

What are you all using for hunting packs?

I bought a Military type knock off from Amazon with all the webbing loops. I have upgraded it to hold my quiver on the left (1/2" EMT in the loops and the quiver snaps on and off), Turkey chair under neath. Bottom of the back is where my rolled up bibs go and jacket over it for the hike in and not sweating. I clip my quilted over boots on and inside is a host of stuff with knifes, head lamps and so on. The 1" webbing and snap clips make this so I can carry everything but the crossbow and gun on my back, but its hard on the cheaper one

The shoulder straps are just sewed into the top seam and the weight is pulling it apart. Stitched it up for now, but its not going to last. I think I need to go to a frame type pack but these Military packs are outrageously expensive and can't find an affordable one on Cabelas I like with enough webbing loops on it.

Suggestions? Some of the ruck sacks are just way too damn big

Subbing as Iím looking for a new pack for next year as well. This year I did as much minimalist hunting as possible. Fanny pack held all I needed; knife, flashlight and headlamp, range finder, harness tree loop, and climber pull rope. Perfect for short hunts or when I used the climber.

Mine is a camel pack type thing. That was a waste cause I just use water bottles anyway. I don't drink till I'm on my way back to the car.
All I'll say is I have Vaseline on my zippers to quiet them down. NO VELCRO!!!!

I'm pretty new to hunting but I just started using a Tenzing TX 7.2 fanny/waist pack. I'm on private land so my walk-in is short so I just need to bring water, snacks, and my field dressing kit. When I'm in my tree stand or blind, I swivel it to the front so I have easy access to stuff. If I had a longer hike-in or I had to pack out quarters, I'm sure I would upgrade to a more traditional style back-pack. My only complaint is the water bottle pouches are pretty tight so I switched to a skinnier bottle that is easier to slip in and out.

I use Kelty packs for just about everything. EDC, hiking, hunting, travel. I have Kelty Redwings, Redtails and MAP 3500s and they are all fantastic packs. The MAP 3500 came with me to the stand this year. No, the MAP isn't 3500 cubic inches. It's 2300 inches. Carried water, ammo, knife, snacks, 1st aid, and extra insulation layer without a problem. Compression strap minimize the unneeded bulk. Spec Ops Brand also makes really great gear. I love their Recon Ruck which is basically a modern medium ALICE pack.

Stay away from Bad Lands packs. They are expensive junk.
