The Ascent 14 was built to stoke the ever evolving demands of a day-hunter.  Bolstering a comfortable 1400 cubic inches, no stone was left unturned when designing this pack.  With a horseshoe shoulder yoke build independently of the pack, the hunter enjoys superior torsional freedom and range of movement.  The pack design allows the shooter to pivot at the hips, and let the pack twist with his/her torso as opposed to restricting upper body movement.    The Ascent 14 is featured with pocketed hip belt, pockets and partitions for gear organization, enabled for hydration system, and adjustable frame stay for varying torso lengths. 3/4 pack keeps your shoulders clean for comfort and ease of shooting.

Amazing pack. Wore it all day hunting with 2 liters of water and hunting gear and jacket and by the end of the day it was still comfortable.

I use this pack as my day pack. I hunt back country elk and deer all over Oregon. Easily carries everything I need while hiking for the day. I've even used it to carry out a 25lb mineral block for scouting purposes and it's very comfortable. I have not used it for packing out any meat, but if I get a kill I will use it for some pack out to get a lager pack that's too bulky for archery hunting. I would highly recommend this.

Great pack - I primarily hunt whitetail from tree stands. I carry all my gear plus extra clothes for layering. The only thing I wish it had was bed roll straps for my bibs.

THE ULTIMATE pack for the day hunter! Sitka's Ascent 14 pack is by far the best piece of equipment I have ever put on my back. As a member of the GORE Hunting Tech team, our charge is to test gear to the fullest potential. My experience with similar products from companies such as Badlands and Eberlestock do not compare. This pack truly meets the needs of a high speed fast approach hunter looking to cover ground without the burden of weight or size. Enough room to hold all the gear I need, the Ascent includes a built in rain fly for unexpected weather conditions. What sets this pack a part from the competition is the "Horse Shoe" shoulder yoke, this design piece allows for ultimate freedom and movement whether stalking that big bull or climbing to the top! The open shoulder component also provides complete freedom and range of motion for drawing back your bow or taking a prone shot with a rifle. After personally testing this product and proving its many uses in the field, I highly recommend purchasing the Ascent 14! You will become one with this pack during your hunt.
