Eberlestock: Just One

Anyone has this?

http://www.eberlestock.com/store/just-one-backpack

I got H2 Gunrunner and I am very, very happy with it but its a bit small for multiday trips so thinking about something bigger. For almost $800 there will have to be a bit of well prepared explaining to do to my missus  Grin

Any comments/reviews would be much appreciated!

had one, used it 3 Or 4 times over 3 years then sold it. found the straps highly uncomfortable with any half decent load of meat on, too many zips to get damaged in the scrub, the mesh is easily mangled when the packs expanded and the scabbard I found was a waste of time and space.

IMO I would only rate this pack for an armed tramp on a walking track they cant stand up to any abuse and the thought of having those horrible straps on my shoulders still makes me shudder  Cry

Cheer GH for your input, I read some good one and bad ones on Amazon but one cannot be sure what sort of people in what conditions have been using them eh?

I found scabbard on H2 to be pretty good, rifle can be pulled out very quickly though! Pack is so far doing great job so I thought that another one to "my collection" would be good idea. Perhaps I should stick to my 20 years old backpack for bigger trips  Cool

While not the best "do everything" pack they are a great tops or south Island ( Tahr / Chammie ) hunting pack, they are quite heavy but farken bullet proof & carry weight very well, you just need to learn the best way to load em up ( personal preference ) for how / what you hunt. The scabbard is handy when you need both hands or using an ice axe but the straps can be a pain in the arse though.

Pitty I only just seen this as there was a fulla selling a basically new one on the other forum for $450 including an insert, personally I wouldn't pay $800 for one ( I got mine at a good price ) so shop around  Smiley

I've got a new, unused Eberlestock G3 Phantom in coyote brown with scabbard I can part with for sensible money if you're interested. Reasonably heavy, but comfy, strong, bombproof and will last for ever.

PM me if you're up for it.

Cheers

Had a J1 and it was OK. You can pack it down pretty small if you put all your gear in one "tube" and then fold it all over so it is narrow on your back, when day hunting and using just one pack.
Fully loaded though I found it wanted to pull me backwards, as the slot for the scabbard holds everything another 50 mm from your back.
Empty they weigh over 3kg.
As others have said ...pretty bomb proof  but expensive for new ( try and get a second hand one ).
I think the concept is good but over designed like a lot of American stuff.
