RedHead Up Stream Hydration Backpack
Great day pack!
Bought this last week online, delivery to Canada took 8 business days not bad. The pack was everything i needed. 2L HYD BAG is plenty of water for day hunts, hold my knife, game bag, GPS and all the other things i take with me, even had room for a bag of dog food (Ziploc bag) would recommend it for people only going for day hunts.

Shouldn't have followed instructions
I do a lot of still hunting in northern NY and deer drives in the southern tier. I bought the pack so I could easily have a drink when I was sneaking through the woods. During the early muzzleloader season in the northern tier we didn't experience any cold weather so I didn't have to wear gloves which made unscrewing the cap on the hose easy. But during the regular season in the south we received some cold weather. I decided to put the hole in the cap so I didn't have to constantly unscrew it. When I did this it started slowly dripping all over. It got my mid weight shirt and gloves soaked which led to a very short and cold hunt.

Nice but too small
I am 5'9", 190 lbs... i can only wear this pack if I am wearing a T-Shirt or light jacket. Any kind of cold weather Jacket and Clothing and its too small. The shoulder straps are maxed out with me wearing just a T-Shirt. Total shoulder strap length is 32".
I have a similar day pack from Swiss Gear and the shoulder straps on that is 34" fully extended. So, not a huge difference, but enough so that I cannot wear my cold weather gear with the RedHead pack.
Its a really nice pack and well crafted, but it wont work for me in the winter.
going to have to return it.

I didn't think this pack would be big enough for all my stuff. It all did fit with some room, including my Redhead Binoculars, and love it has a clip on for those on the front is a plus. It even fit my harness for storage until I wear it out.
Only thing I complain about is they don't offer this pack in Realtree Xtragreen. Which is what I thought I was getting instead of just the Xtra. No worries. With 2liter camel back, this is a fine day pack.
