Hey
 
Hope its OK to post this here. Im looking for a packpack that will also hold my rifle neatly. Its a Sako with a scope and bipod so I guess it has to be roomy.  Im planning a long walk but dont want to carry too much stuff so I guess I only need medium cargo compartment.
I´ve been looking at the Eberlestock backpack but not sure if its comfortable to wear or if it holds a full grown gun (with accessories).
 
Anyone with experience on this subject?

I've used Crooked Horn Outfitters gear for years and have no complaints, they are true hunting backpacks made by hunters for hunters.
 
If you just won the lottery and have money to burn then check these out.

Yeah.
 
I wonder if the Trailblazer II works well with rifle too? 
I find the Eberlestock X1A1 quite nice too but Im not sure if it will hold a full size rifle with scope and bipod. Any comments on that?

I have an Ebrlestock Gunslinger and it can definitely hold a full-size rifle.

And I'll be darned if Crooked Horn doesn't also have ScopeShield neoprene rifle scope covers too. Now that IS a good retailer.

Hey that is a pretty cool scope cover.  Then I don't have to worry about losing it.

i have an Eberlestock 104. i used it to carry my 15 lb gun this year. they will hold a fairly big gun. Glenn will make your scabbard a little bigger if you request it. i've only had about 70 lbs on it. nothing real heavy. for a mobile style of hunting that carries your gun, i just can't imagine anything working better. i would put them in the "sore dick" catagory. you can't beat em!
