"Packing big spotters"

Who all here packs big spotters with them in their packs? If so, what packs.
I pack crazy light, so throwing a big spotter in the mix doesn't seem so bad.
Your thoughts/experience s?

Need to measure your spotter 1st, length & the diameter of the big lens. A lot of packs that have a SO called spotter pouch are made for the 65 mm's . The KUIU Icon packs are great as are the EXO's ... Good luck

I keep it simple , my spotter is a 884 Kowa its big and heavy but IMHO the best glass out there,, This is what i have been doing for years, i have a light weight meat frame , the best Cabelas makes and i just attach my badlands day pack to it. slide the spotter in one of the pockets and off i go. That way when an animal hits the ground my meat frame is with me , load up the meat bags and start walking,, to me a good frame is the key,

I made a cushion case for my 95 out of a sleeve of a old down coat. It goes in the big sack of the frame pack.tripod hooked to the out side straps...is the 95 big and heavy for back pack hunts? Yes but i can see a Long ways...Thats why I bought it.

Most packs nowadays provide pockets for spotting scopes. Badlands, eberlestock. Kuiu, Kifaru, and every pack company has recognized the need for a pocket. But some people still pack them on the outside for quick access. Fatrooster.
