Rifle carry with backpack

CPT Morgan:
Sorry to hijack, but in case someone comes across this thread and wants a great solution....  Consider looking in to Eberlestock.  I've been running their G2 pack for a few years now and really like it.  Have harvested several animals after drawing from the scabbard.

machinisttx:
Eberlestock G4 with a 20" barreled AR in the scabbard. It will almost completely conceal an M91/30 Mosin Nagant.



Also try googling for "safari sling".

CPT Morgan:
How long you been running the G4 machinisttx?  You have anything bad to say about it or Eberlestock?

machinisttx:
No complaints from me about Eberlestock, other than the expense. Very well made, if a little heavy. The G4 is close to ten pounds empty, IIRC. I've had it for several years now. They also have a "hunting" line of packs, which are identical to the "tactical" line with the exception of the material used. IIRC, the "hunting" line is made with 500 denier material vs the 1000 denier of the "tactical" line. A little bit lighter weight and I think they are slightly less expensive.

I suppose I do have a complaint, but it's not Eberlestock exclusive. Nobody makes a pack that will fit my wife. She's 4'6" tall.

If you are looking for backpacking gear that small ULA Gear may make something that small.  I know I read on their website they make backpacks for kids, I think the only kid to do the entire PCT used one of their packs.  I have one and really like it.  It is not for carrying a heavy load though.
