Hunting Backpacks - Goshawk
The Goshawk is one of our most popular hunting backpacks. It compresses small enough to use as a daypack, yet is large enough for a 10 day mid-season hunt.
This backpack features a full side zip, making access to gear easy. Two easy to reach bottle pockets hold two nalgenes each, and strategically placed web loops allow multiple compression schemes. Pair the Goshawk with a Talon and/or a Top Lid for more organization.
Handmade in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA.

- Main pack bag is made of X-Pac™ waterproof material and features a waterproof rolltop closure. Seam sealing the outside seams is recommended for exceptionally wet environments.
- Water can penetrate the side zipper, but usually not in a rain situation with the pack upright - the zipper flap does an excellent job of repelling rain.
- Waterproof stuff sacks are recommended for exceptionally rainy conditions, and drybags for submersion or severely wet conditions such as bushwacking or canyoneering.
- Side pockets are 500D Cordura and are not waterproof.
- All bear cans will fit horizontally at any location in the Goshawk. Go nuts.
