I'm looking to replace my hunting bag. I like to carry a bag while I'm out to carry my effects. Usual contents as fallows; extra knife, machete, hatchet, sharpener, file, scope/ in case, dry pair socks x2 , fire starter, 2 qt water. That's for a one day trip. I would like it to also perform double duty as a travel pack. I've looked at several. Would prefer canvas and leather or full leather. Just curious as to what some of ya'll might use or recommend. Thanks.
Have you looked at Eberlestock? Have used thier products and found them to be top notch.
I also have a recommendation for Eberlestock, with the rifle scabbard is it possible to have your hands free whether it goes steeply up or down.
