I purchased this day pack for my wife last year. I think we have had enough time to write a review now having taken this pack on everything from Elk to Bear to Duck.
The positives are this pack is well built, has strong zippers, strong stitch lines, and really holds up under all conditions whether that be 90 degree days chasing elk early archery season or 10 degree days in January hunting ducks.
The pack is very small you aren’t going to get much into this pack especially if you pack an extra warming layer. A day pack should be just that a day pack my wife found it very difficult to pack optics, warming layers, food, gear etc. my wife is only 5’2 110 pounds so she doesn’t need much but never had enough room.
The one thing I can not stress enough and you absolutely should know this pack is INSANELY NOISY. The zippers, the material, everything about this pack makes an insane amount of noise. If you’re not worried about noise and are planning on glassing off a ridge or clear cut then you will be fine but if hunt by getting into the animals and sneaking into bedding sites and tree stands or blinds this pack is not one I would bring or you would want to bring. I would consider something else. Prois really needs to go back to the drawing board on this one. With that said my wife absolutely loves Prois. I have bought her Kuiu, First light and offered her Sitka but she is and has always been loyal to Prois. But you really need to design a new day pack.
I love this pack...have taken it antelope, elk, and deer hunting successfully. As for the material, sure it is on the louder end; however, while hiking through the woods, I am not rubbing it on things or sitting and playing with it, so I do not have an issue! Fits the body perfect! I am 5'7"! Straps hit exactly where needed and can buckle the chest buckle just fine! The side pockets did get holes, I sent it into badlands and they repaired them quickly, no questions asked and for free.
The bag is overall great quality and well put together, but the frame makes it unnecessarily heavy. I don't hike or travel far to my spots so the frame in the bag is not needed for me. I also don't carry much with me, just the necessities. I wish you guys would make another bag without a frame soon. I do agree with the other reviewers that it's noisy as well. Other than that, it works well for what I need it for. It would be great to have other bag options since not everyone needs that frame.
I’m sure it’s a great pack however I still have not received it. It will probably have travelled the world more than I have by the time it reaches me in Canada.
Haven't had a chance to use it yet but I like all of its features, only thing is the material is pretty noisy for a hunting pack.
