ALPS OutdoorZ Big Bear
Expandable day pack
Whitetail Deer
Realtree EDGE
The Big Bear is our most modular pack yet - it can be used as a fanny pack, day pack, or both! The fanny pack has a large extendable day pack that expands out of the fanny pack to give you an additional 1,900 cubic inches of space. If you're going on a short trek and only need the capacity of the fanny pack, the expandable day pack section can stow away. You can also connect optional pockets to the front of the shoulder harness. There is a binocular pocket or turkey call pocket that can clip onto the harness of our Big Bear pack. These pockets are also compatible with the Little Bear. The fanny pack has a large main compartment, 2 side pockets, and a front pocket, giving you plenty of space to organize your gear. The Big Bear comes with a padded removable waist belt that has an easy access pocket to keep your smaller items handy. We offer this pack in Brushed Realtree® Edge™ fabric. With so many options and uses, the Big Bear is sure to quickly become your favorite pack.

Elk Hunt

drawn for late Elk hunt in Arizona, went looking for a new pack and finally decided on this one been using it for 2 months of scouting my area and learning the roads, like of humping canyons, and this pack hauls everything great pack

Very good quality and design

I was abit skeptical at first but the pack is great. Very versatile and the quality is amazing. Looking into their other packs for longer trips.

Very Versatile, Good Quality

I have had this pack for 3 seasons now. There is plenty of room for just about everything a treestand hunter would need. Mine comfortably carries the following:

Field dressing kit




Limb saw

Trail tacks

2 Small Knives

Bow hanger

Gear hook

Harness lanyard


Binoculars (10x42)

Drink (Coffee mug or 32oz Nalgene)

This is a rugged, well-built pack that is holding up very well. It spends most of its hikes with the shoulder straps slung over the top of my treestand and I clasp the waist belt around the front of the stand.

The only downsides to the pack are the zippers. There are many of them. So many that I had to remove some of the zipper pulls because I kept accidentally unzipping the rainfly and the day pack portion when trying to simply access the lumbar portion. It would be nice if some of the pulls were different colors to differentiate between compartments because they are very close together, or if maybe the pockets were separated differently. The zippers are also loud, but if you open them slowly they aren't loud enough to scare game. It's just slightly inconvenient to have to take the time to undo zippers slowly when reaching for just one item. The pack did fit me slightly weird. I had a hard time adjusting the straps to get a perfect fit, but because most of the time its on the treestand and not on my back, I don't worry about it too much. Occasionally the buckles squeak when the load shifts while moving. It seemed to happen more often when the pack was new. Now the buckles seem quieter.

This pack has a ton of room. I carry all that gear above and I still have room for more stuff. The pack is holding together very well. No frays, no stitching coming undone, etc. The fabric itself is quiet. It is nice to have the option to collapse the day pack when its not needed to reduce bulk. This is especially nice during summer scouting and early season hunts so the pack isn't against your entire back causing you to sweat.

I would buy this pack again. I wish it came in other patterns. Preferably a brown/green combo that isn't camo.
