    Day pack

    After a day bag for duck season, something I can throw my thermos and bit of tucker and a jacket, i like the 15 - 25 litre bags range, something similar to the hunter element, Manitoba, stoney creek styles BUT hopefully avoiding the associated price tag if i can! So if anyone has something reasonable that they are looking move on and upgrade please send me a message

    Hard to find but I have a Stoney Creek Rakaia 30 back pack. Can be a big bum bag then unfolds to be a 30 litre pack. Easily get everything for a day hunt. Really like it as it can be quite small or a resonably capable pack. Very comfy to wear.

    @Tertle

    I honestly wouldn’t go for a Hunters Element pack, they’re pretty average to say the least.
    I have a few packs that I’d part with - I’ll PM you the details.

    Interesting, id be curious to see where you think they fall down! Ive a macpac tuatara 25 that I was given to use in the solomons in 2014 still have it, great size and it’s been through rough and demanding places, i use it daily, its a similar material as a vaude 50 lt bag I use again bomb proof, im wondering if stoney creek or similar might be an option?

    @Tertle the hunters element stuff is crap. Mate had a pack, zips and stitching fell to bits in a month. I've had a couple of bits of clothing and same thing, stitching and zips failed. Suspect the fabric they use is okay but unfortunately cut corners with construction and components.

    Much better to go with a recognised tramping brand eg Cactus, macpac etc. 'Buy once cry once'

    I’ve learnt through harsh lessons to buy once and cry once. Only a smart alternative is Trademe or here and go quality second hand.

    I’ll be offering Tertle: Macpac, Twin Needle, Kathmandu or Markor plus what ever else I find down there later today!

    trade me has very much become a drop point for ali express and every derivative, the smart option is here, what you have is an environment in which 90% are honest good buggers who when they are upgrading lessen their hurt by selling a good item at a good price, i also find people with a shit ton more experience who have similar items will normally give fair comments around any associated features and benefits of items.

    See if you can find a Tatonka stealth pack.

    They do a 25 L, 30 and 35 +10.

    All 3 have a miniature x1 harness in them and are amazing. I run the 35+10.

    Would wholeheartedly recommend one
