Eberlestock X2 Pack features include a tough, lightweight tubular aluminum frame, generous pockets on the pads on the waist belt, and big spotting scope-sized main side pockets. This pack is in a class of its own, and now we've taken it even further into the realm of the unbeatable.
The X2 is a tough little pack with big pack features. Like oversized compression straps for lashing on a heavy load. Dual hydration compartments. Quick-access pockets for spotting scopes and tripods. And now a rugged IntEx™ metal frame.
FIELD TEST: We field test the X2 with a 100 lb. bag of sand attached to the pack by wrapping the X2's built-in compression straps around it. This pack will carry a serious load, like an elk quarter, just by banging it onto the front of the pack with 4 quick buckles.
SUSPENSION: A full mesh back panel, with pads in the essential places, is separated from the main pack by a big air gap. This is a cool-wearing, tight riding little pack that has more capabilities than any book bag you'll ever find.
POCKETS & STORAGE: The X2 opens its wings to unveil two tuck pockets inboard of the zippered hydration pockets. These are perfect for stowing a spotting scope and tripod, or other items you'll want quick access to.
MULTI FUNCTIONS: At the bottom of the pack is the FlexChassis, ready to flip forward to use as a seat, or to cradle the bottom of a load that you strap to the front of the pack with its oversized compression straps.
ULTIMATE CONVENIENCE: X-project packs are designed for the hunter that wants light and fast mobility. Whether you're a bow hunter or a gun hunter, once you've discovered the ability to move with your hands free from carrying your weapon, it'll change the way that you think about hunting.

This pack is my 6th hunting pack, I usually update every 3 to 5 years. This one is my latest and my favorite up to now. My last one was a Kelty Arrowhead 2000 which was a frame-less pack. I liked it so much it was used the most, until now. The X2 is now my go to pack with the ability to pack out more meat then the Kelty could. The X2 employes an aluminum frame and a strap system which allows it to carry a meat bag with ease, Two 100oz hydration bags, lots of lash points for added pouches from Eberlestock or any Molle pouches. The rock camo is nice for my area, just wish it had a built in rain cover like my Kelty does. The frame gets noisy so you my want to apply tape to the metal frame. The pockets have a short clip for hooking the hydration bags but it's to long to work right. I had to fashion a short loop out of para-cord to correct this downfall. All in all a great design which I wish I had years ago, would have made hauling deer out easier..You can even attach a rifle scabbard or a bow holder to it. The main bag is rated at 1800 to 2000ci but it could hold way more then my Kelty ever could. Just ad the optional outside attached pockets to increase storage. The material is pretty strong and quiet. So far this day pack worked well on my three night trip using ultra lite gear. Best hunting pack yet..4 stars for the lack of built in rain cover and the not well thought out water bag holders and the noisy frame..
Love this pack. Tons of space and the pack is really intuitively laid out. Most would say it's a day pack. That's probably mostly true, but if you go minimalist and push it on space you can turn it into a 1-2 night pack. You have to get creative, but it can open so much space it's possible. I went back and forth between this and a few other packs and I'm really happy I went with this one. It's budget friendly compared to a lot of hunting packs out there and gives awesome performance. Buy it and you'll come away pretty happy. If it has one downfall it's that there's no place to slip your gun. That said, I've used the side pockets to carry my .22 on a day hunt.
