This highly technical day pack is suited for long jaunts away from the truck. It’s 2000 cubic inch volume provides enough room for surplus snacks, water, and even a small bivy cache for the savvy lightweight overnighter. Hip pockets tuck away and transform to be weapon carry capable. This pack also includes a detachable rain fly system, bra-clip/hypalon strap system, oversized stretch mesh outer pockets, and our quick and secure gun/bow cable system.
The Flash 20 is a highly technical day pack suited long jaunts that may pull the hunter great distances from the truck. A satisfying 2000 cubic inches provides enough room for superfluous snacks, water, and even a small bivy cache. An adjustable configuration of load & accessory straps gives you the freedom to secure even the most awkward loads. Detailed with a padded spotting scope pocket, pocketed waist belt, quick-stash mesh pockets, enabled for hydration systems, and a suspended back to maximize air circulation in the lumbar region.
I've had this pack for 2 years now, and I figured I'd beat it for a whole before I put my 2 cents in on it. This pack has been one of the best packs I've had. There are a few flaws that I've noticed that I'll get into later. Overall, this pack is great. The hip pockets are great for my rangefinder, small bow hangers, keys, knives and leather man. The large main pocket has hauled my extra layers, rain gear, camera arm and snacks without a problem and you can expand or compress the pack with no problems with the 4 straps on the sides. The rain fly works great and I use that compartment to keep all flashlights and head lamps. The middle pocket with the padded spotting scope pocket is great for putting large bow hangers, spotting scopes, or in the early season, my Thermocell fits perfectly into that pocket. I'll also throw additional lenses for my DSLR into that pocket. The drop in pocket is used for my beanie, scents, and gloves and I use the side drop pockets for my human scent eliminator and water. This pack is very well laid out and feels great on your back. I also love the fact you can roll the excess strap material up so you don't have 16" of extra strap billowing. The bow carrier is also top notch. This pack has only given me 1 major issue, the bonded material on the stretchy side drop pockets has all peeled off, and it won't be long until the cut pieces of that stretch material starts to fray. As a product tester for GORE, I pride myself in being 100% honest with my reviews, and even with a little hiccup, I'd recommend this pack to anyone.
I've had the flash 20 pack roughly 4 months now. I was concerned upgrading from a small belt pack, to this. My concerns have been dismissed. It truly preforms up to the reputation of the brand, Sitka. So far I've used this for hog hunting in Florida, whitetail hunting in Maryland, and waterfowl hunting in Maryland (although it’s not a waterfowl pack). It’s worked flawlessly. This pack has perfect compartment sizes and the camouflage pattern is incredible. Many of my friends have looked into purchasing one. Thanks for a great product!
I have used the Flash 20 pack last fall and was very impressed. It worked great in the Mountains chasing elk. The Hydration Bladder pocket on the inside was perfect for my 100 oz bladder. I also liked that the frame keeps the pack off of your back allowing some air to enter and keep you from sweating as much. After returning back to Kansas from the mountains it was time to hit a treestand. I used the flash 20 as my whitetail pack for the entire season and was not disappointed. There are plenty of compartments to keep all of my gear organized and I am also able to strap on extra clothes to put on when I reach my stand. As a Gore product tester, I was excited to get this pack, but after putting it to use I am even more excited. The flash 20 will be with me on all of my future hunts!!
