    I am looking for a pack with a rifle pocket. Who has one? Any recommendations?

    Cheers.

    I don't have an edge like yours!
    Told you perms where heavy
    I think they are fantastic packs, mine get
    a lot of use, the only downside is some people think they are heavy,
    I don't really get it, the dragonfly is heavy full off venison

    There was an outfit at the Tahr show that had a pack with a quick release rifle scabbard. (sorry, can't remember their handle think is was something like vaud?)
    Price was rather off-putting though. I did see a link somewhere, and if I manage to find it I'll post it up.

    The Elberlestock packs are cheaper.

    Was pretty impressed with them (Vorn). Much lighter than my Eberlestock J34 (which I really like)

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    Yeah, they looked a pretty neat design. Allow you to keep both hands free and a quick release access to rifle. Beats all those times climbing high and your rifle swings around on your shoulder and smacks you in the face!

    I picked up a Ridgeline Gunslinger for $50 at my local scout store. Does the job and you cant beat it for value. Not so much as a pocket for your rifle but a couple of slips and velcro to hold it in place.

    What material are the Vorn packs made out of? Are they made from material that will be quiet in the bush like eberlestock and badlands?
    I am also curious as to how fool proof the quick release is for a rifle. Will a smack from the left dislodge the rifle?
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.
