Hunting Backpacks / Revolution Platform / Goshawk

The Goshawk is based on our popular Fortress pack bag and includes a full side zip and extra compression loops.  The Goshawk can utilize our Talon Compression system to change the organization of the pack to match the adventure at hand. 

Handmade in Grand Junction, Colorado, USA.

Goshawk Features:

  • Revolution Platform - can be used without a packbag, or carry a load between the bag and suspension.
  • Large rolltop packbag.  Extremely lightweight and water resistant design.
  • Dual water bottle pockets with shock cord closure.  Cord is user replaceable for long service life.
  • Versatile compression system utilizing Gatekeeper hardware.  Use it, lose it, or move it.
  • Three horizontal compression straps on each side.
  • One over-the-top "V" compression strap.
  • Two lower load shelf compression straps.

Seek Outside Hunting Backpacks:

Our goal is to build the best hunting backpacks in the world.

That's easy to say, everyone says it. But what does it mean? What criteria do you judge a thing like that by?

For us it starts with heavy load comfort and durability. Hauling elk quarters or a boned out deer stresses every part of a pack, so every part of our packs use top shelf materials and the strongest construction methods we can dream up.

Our stiff frame and hipbelt operate differently from other makers, and honestly our belts slip less under heavy loads. Our packs are rated to 100+ lbs and have carried well past 150 lb loads.

Body types and tastes differ, but we and many of our customers believe our packs to be the best with big loads.

How do you make a heavy load pack not feel like a backbrace with a day load? With an articulating frame. Under light loads our frame moves with you. It feels like it disappears.

We make the lightest weight hunting backpacks available. Why is this important? It's not if you hunt the flatlands. It becomes important when you're gaining 3,000 feet in a mile and a half and the fun factor cratered an hour ago. People who have suffered - really suffered - under heavy loads in the steeps know that weight matters.

Tall frames are great for heavy loads. Shorter frames are good for day hunting. Our packs do both. With adjustable frame height you can hunt with a 24" frame while slipping through timber, and then if you get an animal down change the frame height to 26" or 28" - without tools, in the field, in two minutes. No one else does this.

We hate raincovers. They are unneeded weight, noisy, messy, just an all around disaster. We make our packbags from X-Pac, a completely waterproof material that eliminates the need for a raincover.

These are the criteria we use to judge our backpacks.

Don't listen to us though, or to anyone else.

Be your own judge.

Rain Cover / Seam Sealing: 

  • For instructions, check out our video Seam Sealing a Backpack.
  • 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.

 

Bear cans:

  • All bear cans will fit horizontally at any location in the Goshawk.  Go nuts.

 

Materials: 

  • Suspension is 500D Cordura and 3D mesh. Hypalon and 500D Cordura reinforcements
  • Expedition Olive (X42) is a 420 denier plain weave with a 200 psi PET laminate

 

Dimensions:

  • Constant 40" circumference
  • 37" unrolled height
  • 35" max height when closed

    Goshawk

    Posted by Josh Green on 28th May 2018

    I bought this pack for hunting hiking and fishing. It’s been great on the dozen or so trips that I’ve taken it on. I’ve found that it’s super adaptable, compressing down to hold a days worth of gear securely or enough for several days when expanded. Don’t forget to utilize the load shelf for things like food while hiking into a hunting spot to allow more room in the pack for gear, it’s a great way to extend your days in the field. The zipper is great for keeping your pack in order, keeping you from constantly digging. Overall a great, light pack that Works for me in every situation I’ve put it in.

    Took this pack on its maiden voyage this weekend, and I am in LOVE!
    The fit is superb. Super light weight, seems very very durable.
    No more rain fly is right! This bag will sit in a puddle of water and keep its contents bone dry. (unintentionally tested)
    Full length zipper, no more yard sale on the mountain side.
    Gatekeepers are a great feature, easy to unbuckle when compressed. Far more superior to the traditional buckles
    Side pockets are way deeper than they appear, fit 2 nalgenes, headlamp, extra batteries, some drink mixes on one side, turkey calls, trekking poles on the other. Note: there is a small weep hole in the bottom of the side pocket that is great at dispersing water and small items such as AAA batteries.

    Get the base talon! Unlike other packs, that have an H2O sleeve inside, the talon allows you to carry water on the outside which allows for easier access, and eliminates issues with gear or your back getting saturated because you didn't close the lid of your bladder properly or it ruptured mid-hunt (you know this has happened to you before.) It's stupid easy to remove, refill, replace your water bladder without the headaches that you've come accustom to. If it were raining, would you really want to open your pack and expose all your gear? Get the talon.
    I cowboy camp because I'm lazy and don't like the hassle of setting up a big camp. Easier to pack up as well. So, keep that in mind when I say this. 3 day Turkey Hunt. Extra Clothes: long johns, puffy jacket, 3 long sleeves of various weight, socks, food, water - 1 camelback, 2 naglenes, rain gear, sleeping setup, decoy, bow, and an elk skull with ROOM TO SPARE! Hell, I even packed bagels and bananas.
    This could easily be a 7-10 day pack. Easily.
    We hiked-in, in the dark, so strapped my bow under the talon and used the load shelf as a support for my wheelie bow and snugged everything down for what turned out to be a full-moon lit hike.

    I found that if I compress the bottom a bit more before loading, this eliminates the need to adjust on the trail as much. Keeping everything up high.

    My buddies both have packs from other big name vendors. The packs are nice in their own regards but they are envious of the Seek Outside pack. Well done. Cheers to y'all.
