Hunters beware: there's a new pack on the market, and it's the cream of the crop... especially when you consider the price you can get it for. There are a lot of features crammed into the Traverse. For starters, let's talk about its modular design. It can hold your bow or gun in the expandable pocket. It can haul out meat, decoys, or extra gear in the "hauling mode." It has a pocket designed specifically for carrying and protecting your spotting scope. In addition to all these great features, it has 2 easy access pockets on the waist belt, a large main compartment, a side pocket, internal pocket, and 2 front wing pockets. If you still need room, there are side compression straps to attach even more gear.

The Traverse has a top-of-the-line "H" frame design and multi-layer foam waist belt with a PE outer layer that will make the perfect combination to carrying heavy loads comfortably. Add in the adjustable torso range and this pack has the suspension system every hunter seeks when hauling out an animal or other heavy loads. The unique "H" frame design is made of strong, but lightweight, tubular aluminum. For a pack, the key to carrying weight comfortably is to have a strong frame and a rock-solid, adjustable suspension, and that's exactly what the Traverse has, making it one of the most advanced internal-frame packs in the industry.

4.5 out of 5 stars
great pack!!!

I love this pack and would recommend it to anyone. I used it this past season in packing off a mule deer off a mountain side, along with an antelope off the parie. It held up good. There is plenty of room for many things depending on how you want to load it up for your daily adventure. I like the vented meat area. Great idea. Its a pretty comfy pack.....I hiked in and out, up and down many miles and it did the trick. Cant wait to use it again this year!!


Like one other review on here it does make a creaking noise. Also the zippers are extremely loud. I did not feel like I could use the zippers in the field without spooking any nearby animals.It feels pretty dern good. Even loaded down. However the first day I used it I helped a friend quarter and pack out an elk. Not sure if it was designed for all the wait but a strap broke and the mesh tore under the weight in two places. Decent pack just not designed for much weight.

Great design and functionality but one very annoying trait

I do love everything about this backpack except for one really annoying thing which has brought my review down from 5 stars to 3 stars because it is that big of a deal for me. Regardless of how tight or loose i have the shoulder straps or waist strap and the size i have the shoulder straps set to, the pack makes a constant "Creaking" sound with every step i take simply from the movement of my body transferring to the pack. The Creaking sound is coming from the spot where you adjust the height of the shoulder straps right below the back of your neck. I was very excited to use this on my 6 day bow hunt but it was so loud and annoying that it felt like it was practically impossible to sneak around while wearing this, let alone be able to listen to your surroundings while trying to sneak or simply walk from place to place. I ended up leaving the backpack in the truck and just wearing an old fanny pack style hunt pack or just dropping this somewhere and coming back to it on the way back to the vehicle or camp. If anyone has any suggestions to remedy this issue i would love to hear them.
