For serious Fair Chase hunting you need days and weeks of time in the deep wilderness. Alps Outdoorz has just the pack to get you there and back again with your game.
The Commander is a backpacking frame system complete with a freighter shelf for hauling out those big elk racks, and distributing the weight of your quarters. It includes special pockets for your gear and even for your shooting sticks.
Couple the Commander frame with the Commander Pack Bag and you have enough room for your gear for a lengthy back country stay. The Commander Pack Bag has an enormous 5,250 cubic inches of storage. A hydration pocket allows easy access to your water bladder. It includes a rifle holder to keep your favorite bang stick secure while you hike in and out.
The hold open frame makes finding the gear you need easy. Ample padding on the waist band and shoulder pads keeps you comfortable and adjustment straps help balance even the heaviest loads so you don’t wear out trying to haul all of your gear. A special pocket hold your favorite spotting scope and protects it from being dropped, banged around, or scratched.
The entire rig weighs in at around 7 and half pounds, leaving it plenty light to allow you to fill up on gear and food and haul plenty of your game out. Pull a few clevis pins, and you can leave the Commander Pack Bag behind and just take the frame. With its three lashing straps and freighter shelf you can haul all of your meat out and still leave room for that trophy rack. Check out the Commander Pack System in the camping department of your local Sportsman’s Warehouse.
