At 1,700 cubic inches, the Full Choke is engineered for refuge rats and all-day extraordinaires who require ample storage. Built from rugged 900D Cordura fabric with a Durable Water Resistant outer coating and a waterproof polyurethane inner coating, it easily handles anything mother nature can throw at it. The removable waist belt and hideaway shoulder straps let you turn the pack into a streamlined haul bag, while eight removable nooses make quick work of your bag limit.
"The Full Choke is the perfect waterfowl pack. I can get almost two and a half boxes of shells, calls, an extra set of gloves, socks and still have plenty of room to store all the extras I may need. The best thing about the Full Choke is that it fits perfectly behind the backrest of a layout blind, leaving your arms unimpeded when you shoulder your shotgun."
- Matt Brimmer, Waterfowl Athlete
Awesome pack, instead of loading up your jacket with calls, phone, shells etc. I can easily fit everything into this bag including drinks,cameras, and stuff above.Well made as should be, very comfortable and looks awesome! Outside straps are nice to strap jackets and base layers when the weather warms up. I've used it one whole season without any problems.
Bag is great...holds all the essentials...just wish there were bottle holders on the outside
Took one or two times out, but have become a big fan of this pack. Only issue is with shell storage while hunting but I was able to remedy that somewhat and organize the bag to accommodate my hunting style. I put all my loose shells in the front pouch while hunting in a blind. Just be sure that if you aren't hunting back to back to air out the front compartment or your shells will rust pretty quickly. Like all sitka gear, it appears to be made well and hopefully will last longer than the blind bag I have been using over the past couple of seasons. (I would hope so with the cost!) Waterfowl hunting 30-40 days of the season takes a toll on gear and I am planning on this pack to roll with the punches.
This pack is one way to change the way you hunt. Before this pack came out, I was always switching bags and packs to bring out to the field, unable to find the right one that worked for me no matter the location, specie, or weather I hunted. Not any more! I have not left my house with waterfowl on my mind without this pack since adding it to my list of gear a year ago. It has fallen through the tules and sat in the pond full of gear for 10 minutes without taking in any water. It has been stuffed to the seam's maxim capacity on multiple occasions with additional gear attached to the outside of it, without fail. I am also not the most gentile with it and I have yet to run into any problems. As a matter of fact, one of my close hunting buddies ran over it with his truck during a three point turn. Still, it is ready to hunt tomorrow. Thank you Sitka for my favorite pack!
I leave my blind bag at home now. This is my go-to gear bag for the blind or boat. It keeps everything dry. It has three large pockets that hold plenty. Only thing I would change is the d-ring clip on duck lanyards, The little plastic clip holding on the lanyards is not strong enough to hold more than 2 ducks. It needs a metal clip.
