RedHead RH2600 Internal Frame Pack
I purchased this pack at the beginning of the fall hunting season for hunting in the foothills and rocky mountains of Alberta. The weather can change very quickly so you need a pack that can carry extra gear in case of the drastic weather changes that we frequently get. The pack has ample space for a set of rain gear as well as your water, food, game processing supplies and the rest of your hunting staples. The zipper on the main compartment zips all the way to the bottom in a U shape, allowing you access to the whole pack, so you do no have to pull stuff out to get to whatever you have stashed at the bottom. On the U shaped part there are 2 mesh zippered pouches that you can put your knives, tags, flagging tape and whatever else you would like to keep handy and organized away from the rest of your gear. This is a nice touch as it keeps the things you need readily available to use.
Inside the main compartment there are 2 elastic mesh pockets that can hold water bottles (1L nalgene bottles) or whatever else you would like to stick in there. There is also a divider for a hydration bladder which will hold a 2L with no problem. There is no hose keeper on the shoulder straps, but you can tuck the mouth piece under the chest strap tether to keep it handy. There is a D shaped side access zipper on the left side of the pack which can allow you to easily get at water or food without having to open the large compartment.
Moving to the other side there is another D shaped zipper pouch that is separate from the main compartment where you can put long skinny items, as there are elastic divider pouches to vertically hold objects up to about a foot in length (folding saw). This is nice for organizational purposes.
On the front of the pack there is a small zippered compartment at the top for wallets etc and a larger one in the middle with dividers for glasses, phones and other personal items that you don't want crushed but still have easy access to. A nice touch.
Moving on to the straps they are constructed well and have minimal slip throughout a full day of use. The hip pockets are big enough for range finders, your GPS or a pair of compact binoculars. This is an important feature for the bow hunter to have your finder close at hand. Shrink wrap covered zipper pulls allow for easy opening.
The suspension system holds the backpack comfortably handles the loads I have put in this pack (up to about 30-35 pounds so far) in all sorts of terrain conditions (think foothills and mountains). It hugs tight to your back so you don't feel top heavy and out of balance.
I have used the weapon carry system for both bow and rifle. It works pretty well for the bow and very well for the rifle. A little adjustable pouch comes out of a zippered compartment and you can adjust its length to fit your specific needs.
Lastly there is a rain cover that also pulls out of a zippered compartment at the bottom and the rain cover is sufficiently big enough to stretch over a full pack.
Durability is good so far but it has only been one season so time will tell. Its holding up good so far.
Overall I have hunted with this pack for about 12 days this season and have been very pleased with it. I am 6'2'' and have a longer torso and it fits me very well. I feel it might be a bit of an awkward fit for someone who was shorter but thats just my speculation. Anyway I highly recommend this pack and hope you can enjoy it as much as I have so far.
