Batwing Pouches by Eberlestock – Hunting Backpack Review


Hey guys Scott Reekers here with the
Eastman’s hunting journal thank you for coming to our YouTube channel and today
I want to tell you a little bit about the Eberlestock Batwing pouches. This new
option from Eberlestock packs and you can see the batwing pouch. If you’re
familiar with Eberlestock packs you know that there are lateral tubes on
just about every model that you can use. Well the people at Eberlestock decided
that it would be fantastic to create the batwing option that you can wrap around
just about anything to carry and have a great minimalist option and so we’ll
start by talking about the tube and you can see that it attaches to this F1
main frame from these zippers right here and they attach to each other to close
it. This closing mechanism allows you to hold things like your tripod or say a
rifle you can either strap to the outside or you can mount your scabbard
to this and carry your rifle very easily so there are a couple great options that
you can use just for carrying things and have a minimalist option. The next thing
that this tube style of pouch is great for is storage of your long oddly shape
and things such as a spotting scope now I’ve got a 65 millimeter here from Zeiss
the Daiya scope and you can see that it fits in here great but you can also see
that I was still able to put my lightweight extra t-shirt just add an
extra layering we were able to put that in here and make it fit but it’s a great
option for that and still has the ability to store a little bit more there
are going to be some things you know you don’t like to put a lot of things in
with your spotting scope all the time. But if you need some space say for that
extra insulation layer this is great so the day pack option it’s a fantastic way
of carrying that now the next piece that I want to talk about with these tubes is
the pockets you can see the pocket here on front great for things like your
sunglasses, you can put them in highly recommend carrying a sunglass case if
you choose to do that, or you can look in your interior and
there are pockets here that you can store many things in and if you so
choose you can get your spotting scope in there and it keeps it nice and snug
next to your pack and stops it from abrasion and bouncing around if you
don’t have a lot of things like extra insulation layers in there. Now the next
piece for storage and organization inside these you can see that is big
enough where you can carry a big portable stove with you, I’m a big fan of
coffee I admitley so I love having coffee with me so having the ability to
put this in here and seeing the way this is stored then the next piece is when
you’re running out of a out of a camp, you also have a lot of space for all
sorts of little extras that go in here the next piece that I want to talk about
with these batwing pouches is the center zip option you can see opening it up to
give you the ability to access and use different pieces of gear put different
things in here who is this going to be a huge advantage for? A lot of you are
really in the shed hunting during the spring you spend a lot of time in the
field looking for sheds this is a great way to pack around some of those
obnoxious loads open it up use your straps loosen them up attach them you
can see it will hold your sheds in nice and tight and you’ve still got your
minimum of a tight pack and so you’re not adding extra weight it’s a
lightweight option for you to be able to do that.
This can be attached to any of the J model Eberlestock packs so it gives
you the option of adding a third or fourth pouch when you just need that
extra capacity or you want that space and you like the tube style pouch each
individual pouch is 615 cubic inches and weighs 11 ounces. You can also see that
you’re going to be able to strap things in you’re going to be able to loop in
some things like paracord so you’ve got all sorts of options and different ways
to use this it is a very versatile system. Make sure you visit Eberlestock list.com and take a look at the batwing pouches thanks again for joining us on
