A body-hugging waist belt features multiple pockets, including easily deployable/retractable cam cables to rest your bow when waiting out a close encounter with a stubborn bull.

Really love the pack, I have the old version. Would love if Sitka would upgrade the zippers on everything.

Extremely light weight and comfortable pack. I had been looking for a day pack that would carry a full day's worth of gear/food while hunting Elk for 8-10 hour days and this does just that. The low profile top never gets snagged on limbs and you can hardly tell you are wearing anything at all. If I am hiking long distance I can even secure my bow to the exterior straps to secure it confidently. My only complaint is the hip belt pockets are oddly placed making them somewhat difficult to access. I'm a 34-35 waist and the pockets seem to be more to my sides/back side then out in front where I can easily rummage through them. If I were a more stout person, I feel these pockets would be almost impossible to access without taking the bag off. .

I'm 5'11" and the torso is a tad long for me, not a deal breaker. Its a great day pack with lots of adjustment. The bow holder is kind of a gimmick. One thing missing, is a handle up top to hang the pack. I tied paracord on the bladder hanger and threaded it through the water tube opening. So far that is working for me.

Lightweight and extremely comfortable for spot and stalk day hunts. This pack doesn't dig into your shoulders at all. The 25lb limit is perfect for me for a daypack. Enough room for rain jacket, gloves, watchcap, cookstove, knives, water bladder, and lunch/snacks. The optifade camo blends into the wooded and sage brush environments of Washington perfectly. This pack is also the perfect size for my 3D archery tournaments. Thank you Sitka for a great product!

I love this pack it’s amazing! There are only 2 things I would change. 1. The chest strap that connects both shoulder straps in front of your chest is located too high up on the shoulder straps. 2 there is no handle or loop at the top of the pack to hang it by when in a tree stand. I have had zero issues with the 2 little pieces of Velcro that tidy up excess shoulder straps. Not sure what that’s all about. Definitely still recommend!

I've have been struggling to find a quick day pack for long hikes but not an overnight trek. Being QUIET was the most important thing for me. I had the old version Ascent pack I think and it was super noisy, but of course Sitka's awesome warranty let me send it in and get fixed. I bought this to hold me over until I got the old one back - I love this one MORE. It has lots of straps on the outside to attach your bow or even pack out some meat or bone! IT IS SILENT! AND COMFORTABLE! While I loved the feel of my old one minus the squeakiness. This one is my new go to and that one will become my shed hunter/archery tournament/day pack.

I’ve owned the pack for over a year. It’s a great pack. The adjustment Velcro rubs. And the shoulder padding is shifting to the side as expected. I’ve used it for hunting and weighted hiking. It carries 25lbs of weight as well, a 3L water bladder pretty well. Had to put foam in the bottom to make sure the weight don’t rub through. Great Pack!

Fit well for me, the right shoulder strap had the extra slack secured with provided velcro. It constantly kept getting caught on my light weight hoodie making it fray. Tried to roll it multiple times different ways but didn't work and hoodie sleeve got pretty messed up. So I cut off the velcro and taped the extra slack. The over all space inside the pack is lacking. For daily hunting in Utah mountains only carrying the basics, kill kit, warming layers, parka, snacks/water, headlamp, first aid.... not enough space and hard to access items in bottom of bag.

This pack is exactly what its designed to be. I purchased this to be a day pack, something that wasn't to heavy but could hold all my gear. This pack is that and more. I have used mine a ton since I bought it this October. It is very comfortable and the waist belt holds it very steady and the padding on the back keeps you from sweating too much.

There is so much I love about this pack. The problem is the fit. I’m 5’7” 180lbd my torso length is 19”. This pack is just way to big for me. The shoulder straps are as tight as they will go and the pack hangs down past my spine. I’m very disappointed that I will have to get rid of this one. It is unusable for me. The good news is my flash 20 is in good shape and will be spending another elk season with me. If your a big guy you may really like this pack. Sitka this is a start to a great pack. Make it smaller in torso length and put a frame of some kind in it to help with heavier loads.

A Tale of Two Roars

Rustic wooden gates groaned open as our Toyota HiLux rumbled through. We navigated the rutted, winding dirt road; every pothole and washboard negotiated revealing another layer of the towering Andes Mountains. A gin-clear river meandered through the valley floor. Willows on the cusp of fall color shimmered in the cool afternoon breeze. This was the start of the annual breeding season for red deer in northern Patagonia—also known as the roar.
