"Eberblestock M5 Team Elk review, by Santana Outdoors"

Here is a review of the Eberlestock M5 Team elk pack. Probably my favorite pack of all time!! I love to rifle and bow hunt, and this pack was built with both in mind. At 3100 cubic inches and an external frame, its the perfect 1 to 3 day pack. Please we encourage you to give us feedback on the product and our reviews. Please let us know how we can do better, and if you enjoy it, "like it" on youtube for us...Thanks!!

Have you guys tried this pack with a heavy load (60 - 70 lbs.- packing out a load of meat)? I am curious how it rides under weight with the aluminum frame. Does weight distribution stay pretty even?

Hi, thanks for replying. Yes we have tested this pack out for ourselves with a load, and the external frame works great. we had somewhere aroud the 70lb mark on it, and it worked out great. With some simple adjustments mainly to compression straps and shoulder straps you can manipulate the pack to ride exactly how you want it to, and the weight can be distributed evenly depending on how you load it and how you use the compression straps. Because of the external frame, and the cubic inch size of the pack, it is my favorite pack for 1 to 3 day expedition. Hope this helped you out and thanks again for replying and checking out our review. By all means if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Can you take off the pack and use only the frame? fatrooster.

Finally picked one of these up. I have been getting gear together for my September muzzleloader mule deer hunt and am going to have no problems getting 4 days worth of gear for a wilderness hunt into this pack. If rides great and is everything I hoped it would be. I will note that I am 5' 11" and I have to put the shooters harness on the uppermost ladder setting to get a good fit and get the waist belt properly fit on my hips. I don't think I have a particularly long torso. For taller hunters, I think the pack probably wouldn't provide a great fit.........

Just got back from an 8 day NV muzzleloader mule deer hunt including 3 days packed in to a wilderness area. The pack was great and was on my back the entire time. Performed flawlessly and was extremely comfortable and versatile. There are a couple small things that could make the pack slightly better, but it is a great pack.
