The larger style of our waterfowl collection adds a few more features to the half choke model. The Full choke provides extra pocketing on the front and more organization for the small stuff. The handles are padded for more support. Just like it’s little brother, the bottom and sides are taped seams with durable nylon fabric.
Intended Use: Full Day Shoots. At 1700 cubic inches, the full choke is engineered for those refuge rats and all day extraordinaires that require the space. The Full Choke offers the functionality of a traditional shell bag with the ability to shoulder or carry a mornings worth of gear and/or a limit of birds. Stuff your thermos of coffee in or safely store extra shells....this pack does it all.
"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
Couldn't ask for a better pack. I've had just about everything when it comes to hunting packs, and can honestly say this is by far the best. So many different well thought out pockets that you do not even realize until you use it in the field. Water tight zippers are typically a bit rough, yet these zipper keep your gear dry and slide easily in the cold. For instance there are finger holes next to the zipper to keep the zipper taut while zipping and unzipping the bag. Overall couldn't ask for a better bag. Everything fits perfectly.
I have a cabinet full of duck hunting bags and packs as I have always been looking for something better. The Full Choke answered the call. It is a well built pack with enough compartments to organize your gear but not so many that you have to search for everything. Very tough pack but comfortable to wear or great to use as a bag. Lighter inside makes seeing in pack easier. I would like to see one small totally waterproof pocket of bag for license ,wallet, money and keys. Otherwise, WELL DONE. I am not a GORE product tester. My Sitka gear is purchased with my own money after a great deal of research.
I love this pack! I bought it this year and questioned myself if i was crazy for spending so much on a pack. Heck no! This thing is awesome and i love it. As all sitka products are, it is way more thought out than anything on the market. Since I own a dog, my end of the pit always stays soaked with water/mud and this pack stood up to the test. I am so glad i bought this pack. It is bad to the bone!
Having used the Full Choke pack for a full waterfowl season I fell in love with it. Never before have I had a waterfowl bag that was more versatile and more thought out. The ability to put it on your back to free up your hands for guns or decoys is unmatched. The Full Choke has ample room for extra shells and gear you need for those days the weather changes. The built in bird lanyard is such a bonus for making that one trip to and from the blind at the end of the day! I find myself using this pack for other activities outside the waterfowl world. I would recommend this pack to anyone looking to improve on the typical blind bag. As a Gore product tester I give this pack full endorsement.
After running the Full Choke Pack through a full season chasing ducks here in Arkansas I am very impressed. Sitka has done an excellent job of creating a pack for the waterfowl hunter that covers all needs in the field. This pack comes in at 1700 cubic inches which allows ample room for all the necessities needed for a full day in the woods or blind. The full zippered access to each compartment allows for easy identification of contents without removing any items. Handles on the top and side allow you to acclimate the pack either vertically or horizontally so you can lay it beside you on a blind bench or hang it on a tree limb. Adjustable waist straps and back straps allow for a custom fit based on what you are wearing. Loosen the straps for a cold morning and multiple layers or tighten when it's warm and you are lightly clothed. The adjustments make carrying a full pack so much more comfortable. Water resistant material on the sides and bottom keep you from soaking your contents when the bag is in the bottom of the boat or blind. A built in duck strap helps keep limits separate and haul out ducks at the end of the day. I hunt primarily in the public timber of East Arkansas and used this pack over 30 days in the 2012-13 season. Many days we boat to a location and then walk/wade another 1/4 to 1/2 mile. I needed a pack that could both haul everything I needed for the day (and more) but that was comfortable on an extended hike and the Full Choke fit the bill. As a Gore product tester I'm thankful to have gotten my hands on this pack. Highly recommended.
