Pockets galore and heavy-duty construction are just a couple of hard core features I look for when deciding on a pack. Today, hunting packs include many top end features that diehard archery hunters have come to appreciate; including hydration bladder, compatible construction and a multitude of different sized pockets and storage areas to store everything needed for a day or even week of hunting--depending on the size of the bag used.
Game Plan Gear's newest Spot-N-Stalk quiver is their newest pack offering and like there other packs, drastically different than what has been used before. Designed for easy arrow retrieval, the hydration bladder compatible Spot-N-Stalk pack allows an archery hunter to attach any brand quiver at an extremely-accessible angle on the hip. The quiver can be permanently attached to the pack with adjustable straps or with a grommet-and-strap system that allows a hunter to screw a detachable quiver base to the pack.
Also, the lightweight pack allows the user to easily draw and shoot while the pack is on. Other notable features include a quick-access chest pocket ideal to store rangefinders, a zippered mesh pocket for releases, bedroll bottom construction for jacket storage and a grab handle that allows the user to simply spin the pack around in front of them for easy access without the need to take the pack off. --Daniel Beraldo
