A backpack developed for the burgeoning community of sportswomen, Slumberjack’s Wild-Her pack has all the bells and whistles that characterize an ideal daypack—generous capacity (2,016 cu. in.), durable construction, comfort-enhancing adjustments and hydration-system compatibility. It also possesses great hunting-specific features, including provisions for stowing a rifle, bow or trophy rack, exterior pockets designed to double as a shooting resting, and Kryptec Highlander camouflage. The Wild-Her is equipped with a specially contoured hip belt and shoulder straps to better fit the average female figure, and flair is added in the form of purple stitching and logos. For men interested in this capable day hunter, or those shopping for his and hers hikers, the company’s Hone pack is nearly identical in design, sans purple embellishments and the sizing. Price: $160. Contact: Slumberjack; (800) 233-6283; slumberjack.com.
