The answer to this question states that one may want to use a backpack with the possibility to attach a bow or a rifle.

I use a pack similar to this one...

RedHead Primal Bow/Rifle Pack

However, I don't want to have camouflaged equipment to hike. Is there something similar without camo?

    the holder seems simple enough, you could probably make one. – njzk2 Jan 19 '16 at 19:00

If your reason for not wanting camo is that you want to be obvious (maybe to other hunters so you don't get shot) then you can always flash a backpack with reflective material, or use a hi vis pack cover such as those recommended for cyclists.

Home-modding a rucksack to incorporate the barrel ties and stock pocket probably wouldn't take you too long if you wanted to turn your favourite pack into one able to carry a gun.

If it is purely for fashion reasons, then you are at the mercy of the manufacturers, who will make those they think will sell - and if camo packs are the big sellers then that is what you will find.

    Some backpacks also come with bright raincovers built in. – Aravona Jan 19 '16 at 14:17

I've found some! I've searched a little bit and stumbled over a few. For example the "Halti Kauris":

One is even able to remove the "rifle holder" and use it as a completely common backpack.

Or the "Wisport Forester":

Also I came across these beauties:

But as wonderful as they are, they are expensive and the backpacks quite small.


I use this bow pack when I want a lightweight solution.

  • The question specifies they don't want camo. – Erik Feb 1 '16 at 17:19
  • It also comes in black on Cabelas website, but I didn't see an image for it. – WedgeBuster53 Feb 1 '16 at 17:49

    It might be a good idea to include more details in your question, like the name of the pack and the availability of the pack in black. – Erik Feb 1 '16 at 17:51
