Successful hunting is as much about comfort as it is about preparation. It’s hard to stay in a treestand after dripping with sweat from the long trek to your secret wallow while carrying all your gear. Luckily, Timber Hawk has released its latest version of the popular Gut Hook waist pack. This lightweight storage system not only keeps users much cooler than standard backpacks, but also has all the room and features hunters expect from a high-end pack.
The Timber Hawk Gut Hook has a roomy main compartment with three interior accessory pockets. There is plenty of room here for an extra layer of clothing, limb saw and other bulky items. There are also three waist pockets, perfect for game calls, knife, flashlight and additional small utility items. Earlier versions of this pack featured two large hip belt pockets on each side, but after feedback from hunters who needed to carry a pistol, bear spray or side-quiver, a pocket on the right side was replaced by a strap and buckle to accommodate those accessories. All told, the waist pack offers an impressive 1,500 cubic inches of storage!
Although all hunters will be impressed by the functionality of this pack, bowhunters may appreciate it the most. Not only can the Timber Hawk Gut Hook tote a bow with startling security, but it also allows hunters to retrieve the bow without having to remove the pack. To carry a compound, simply slide the lower cam between an outer panel and the main storage compartment, and then secure the upper limb with the strap included on the top part of the shoulder harness. To remove the bow, simply reach behind you and unlatch the top strap. With full, silent access to the bow, hunters will be prepared to shoot in a matter of seconds.
Because this is a substantial waist pack, Timber Hawk over-designed its support system to ensure not only comfort, but durability, as well. The yoked shoulder harness easily supports the weight of the pack while a high-density, breathable foam, padded waist belt keeps it in place. This wide belt will not cut into your waist and includes compression straps on both the left and right sides. The Timber Hawk Gut Hook is lined with ultra-quiet, durable twill fabric. All straps are fully adjustable so the pack will perfectly fit hunters of all heights and waist sizes.
For the perfect finishing touch, Timber Hawk added large loop zipper pulls for easy access to compartments with gloved hands, as well as webbed accessory loops so you can add additional gear to the pack. The Timber Hawk Gut Hook is currently available in Realtree AP. When hunters experience the functionality of this pack, it may well become their pack of choice for every hunting condition.
Timber Hawk offers the absolute best hunting backpack for your hard earned dollar.
