A backpack becomes more than just a piece of gear when you hit the woods or mountains for multiple days. A hunter’s pack becomes his companion, holding a firearm or bow when both hands are needed; helping to haul meat to camp; or offering water when thirst strikes. So, discerning hunters put a lot of thought into pack selection as it is arguably the most important piece of gear they carry. Timber Hawk understands the relationship between comfort, storage and functionality and the new Timber Hawk Killshot Pack proves it.
Featuring an enormous 3,300 cubic inches of storage, this multi-day pack has more than enough room for everything a user would want to take afield for an extended hunt. A cavernous main compartment is ideal for toting large amounts of meat back to camp after a successful kill. For quick access to frequently used gear, the Timber Hawk Killshot features left and right hip belt accessory pockets, as well as a padded front organizer compartment. A top fleece-lined accessory pocket was designed to keep fragile items safe, and a removable shoulder strap pouch with magnetic closure is perfect for keeping your digital device handy. A 2-liter Hydrapak bladder is included, which features a unique zip-lock design so you can turn it inside-out for cleaning. The hydration hose s insulated to keep it from freezing on
The Timber Hawk Killshot’s versatility really shines when it comes to holding a hunter’s weapon of choice. You can fasten a rifle to either the left or right side of the pack, and a bow can be stowed in four different ways depending on how you need it to ride. No matter which way you fasten your weapon to the pack, it can be retrieved quietly and quickly, in case there is need for a quick shot. Whether toting a rifle or bow, there is still room to carry a tripod for a spotting scope or shooting sticks.
Although the versatility of this pack sets it apart from others, the focus on comfort under heavy loads makes the Timber Hawk Killshot really special. An adjustable shoulder strap system allows the pack to perfectly fit any body type while three horizontal compression straps surround the bag for ultimate load stability. A deluxe padded waist belt features a reversed ladder lock configuration, which requires a lot less effort to get that last inch of slack out of the belt. Try it once and you’ll wonder why everyone’s been doing it the opposite way for so long!
The Timber Hawk Killshot also features the Hawkeye detachable bino system. Just fasten the straps (included) to your binos, then clip the left and right sides to the corresponding buckles sewn into to the Killshot’s shoulder straps. This system allows for rock-solid glassing and reduced arm fatigue while wearing the pack. Want to use the binos after you’ve taken your pack off? Just remove them from the pack, clip the loose ends together, and you have a functional, full-length neck strap.
Because this pack was built to haul serious loads, a heavy-duty top handle caps the features. As with all Timber Hawk packs, the Killshot uses large loop zipper pulls for easy access with gloved hands, and multiple webbed accessory loops to clip on additional gear. Other cool features include a blaze-orange, pullover rain fly and, of course, Timber Hawk’s unconditional lifetime guarantee.
