    Bum Bag - Back Pack

    G'day

    A few years ago now I saw in a NZ shooting mag a Bum Bag that you could extend out into a larger back pack for carrying out meat etc .
    Does anyone have experience with this product , are they still available , what are they called , who makes them , are they any good ?

    Thanks for that .
    I don't think that is what I saw in the magazine , but that thing sure looks good . I think Stoney Creek is imported into Aus so I'll do a bit of research to see if I can get one here .
    Is your one well made ?
    Are the zips and stitching good quality ?

    Yeah mate had it for quiter some years and its still in really good condition, dont think there is anything going on it to be honest.
    Not 100% waterproof but thats easy to fix by putting a dry bag in it if you need to, I never bother.

    I cant fault it mate.

    Top notch piece of kit. Am on my second one now. The first wore through the bottom from sheer hard work whilst the zips etc were still going strong. They are bit narrower and taller than most but that suits me fine. Dont seem to use it bum bag style much.

    I've found a place over here that sells the Stoney Creek bag , so I can get one here .
    I've noticed a couple of you have mentioned that you never use it as just a Bum Bag , so you've got me wondering if I ever would and maybe I should just get a good day pack .
    If you have any thoughts or advice " fire away " .

    Mine is a stoney creek. Gets used as bum bag whilst pig hunting but big enough for overnighter (deerstalking)
    as it can fit sleeping bag and enough bits and pieces. Can tie bag on outside and boned out deer inside if my luck is in.

    I have one.

    I half like it and half dont.
    I thought it was great but now I find it gets uncomfortable and dosnt fit me right.

    I never use it as just a bumbag as I found it allways slid down my ass.

    Im definitely looking into other bags

    Do you find it expensive though? Ripping through that must chew up the gillette's?
