I am an avid hunter, fisherman, and outdoorsman so I am always looking for that next great product that gives me an edge when I’m out in the field, woods, or stream. I always have a backpack whether I’m in a tree or creek and have always fumbled with taking the backpack off so I can reach my gear. Given that the Front Pack is built to co-exist with any backpack, I don’t have to worry about leaving things behind. Instead I can now put my most used items in front for easy access! This also works well with weight distribution. By balancing out my gear from front to back I no longer have to worry about a sore back or shoulders.
As a hunter it is great to have a pack that is camouflage but it is even better when the pack does not use Velcro as primary way to seal up. Velcro is impossible to make quiet and when trying to be stealthy it is not something I want to deal with. What it does have are high quality zippers, tons of storage space, comfortable shoulder harness, and a water resistant shell!
Most of our time spent in the woods is 30 ft up a tree. Our set up is for filming so there are normally 2 stands in one tree. The Front Pack saves space eliminating the need for another bulky backpack. Easy access to my grunt calls, deer lure, binos, water bottle, and of course, our favorite, little Debbie Star Crunches for a mid day snack.
Since we film all of our hunts it’s a great tool for my camera guy as well. It keeps batteries dry and close, allowing the warmth of your body to prevent the cold from draining them while not in use. Extra Lens’ and lens cloths are at your fingertips with little movement to ensure the hard work you’re putting in is crystal clear!
Overall this is an amazing pack by itself or with your favorite backpack. Either way, you will be more prepared with RIBZ!
