Eberlestock pack build
« on: January 17, 2020, 09:54:28 AM »
Got a F1 frame given to me.
I have one of the packs and love it.
I donít think this is my pack I will carry all the time, but until then this is my spring bear pack for this year.
I got the bat wings and thicker belt. Anyone else put one together and what accessories did you end up liking?

yes, that works well, i have all you are interested in adding. My batwing had a failed zipper last fall, they replaced for free the zipper. they are comfortable to use and have unlimited potential options. Downside is the location of scabbard makes rapid use a big no go, the drybag with wings makes for lots of storage. only missing feature from EB is a pouch tie for a bladder but you can put in a wing or bottom of drybag if you have enough hose...

You can also get a camp bag from Kifaru. Itís 4800 CI vs the spike duffle at 2400 CI. I use the camp bag with my Nomad bag and can get 10 to 12 days out of it

Itís cheaper. Itís easier to get to stuff. It also zips to bat wings. 
Itís a bit smaller , pros and cons
Itís not a dry bag.

What does that set up weigh? I got rid of my Just One pack cuz it was close to 9 pounds empty. Thatís a deal breaker for me. Fit me perfect though.

The spike duffel is well built and will last a long time but it is heavy and not waterproof.  You could always go with that and drybags inside or put it in a larger drybag.

Not sure yet
Itís heavier then Iíd want, thatís why I said it wonít be my main pack someday. But itís what I have to work with right now
