"Eberlestock side scabbard"

Has anyone used the side scabbard from Eberlestock that fastens to the side of the pack. Do they work well or are they just an anchor to drag around? Eberlestock also said I need the sniper scabbard for a rife with a bipod. I hope it wouldn't be to sloppy.I perfer a tight fit. No dealers here for help with fitting it. Thanks.

I bought the standard size for my X2, so I could carry a backup muzzleloader for my girlfriend's October elk hunt. The larger scabbard would seem way too big to be attached to the X2. It's padded well and holds the rifle to where it won't flop around.

My 300RUM with 50mm scope fit fine in the standard size. Just have to opt to carry shooting sticks and leave my bipod at home.

I have a side scabbard for my x2, but didn't really like it since it threw my weight off. I'm sure I could fix that by balancing my water, but I just ended up using the sling.

I may mount it on the middle of the pack next time to even the weight out.

That is all good information to think about. I think I will try one. Thanks.

I hope mounting it on the back of the pack works out for you but I think there is a reason that all of the X1, 104, 107 etc have the scabbard close to the body between you and the pack body. Just like the spike duffle, I bought it since it sounded like a great idea to pack out camp after I score but that 20+ lbs hanging out an additional foot from your back really tries pulling you over backwards. The heavier items are better suited closer to your frame. I end up making 2 trips on my back country hunts and the spike sits at home where it stays warm and dry. Know anyone looking for a spike duffel

I agree with your point.It's no good when you have to much of a load all the way back. I also have the X2 pack. Hopefully I can keep it forward and somewhat centered between the side storage bags, and balance it out with water or a spotting scope.

I have the X2 with the scabbard its works great, u can reach up & pull the gun out easily..but you will want to put your H2O system on the opposite side or you will be over loaded on that side.

And don't drink the water???? Just carry extra weight around to offset the rifle?

I don't have an X2. I am just curious.

just wanted to give a hands on update on the X2 we shot 2 bulls last weekend about 2 1/2 miles off the road..quartered them out & loaded our X2s down WHAT a absoulte pain in the AZZ !!! you can not get a front quarter inside these bags we ended up putting the quarters on the outside & the straps Barely closed..we would have been in a world of ##### had we not had rope..these packs also ride so low we were having to lean so far forward trying to get the weight forward...I strongly suggest before heading into the back country or even a mile off road to load this pack down with some weight & check it out 1st...love the fit & design of this pack but NOT impressed at all with its packing abilities
