Pack Out Bag Demo

“We had a great time at the Elko, NV and Boise, ID Sportsman’s Show last month. We would like to thank everyone who participated in our live demo. It was exciting to see the response everyone had when they could feel the difference between how it felt to carry 40 lbs. of sandbags in a back pack vs 80 lbs. of sandbags evenly distributed front and back in a Pack Out Bag. Everyone was surprised to realize that they can usually carry twice as much in a Pack Out Bag more comfortably than half the amount with all the weight on your back.”

We would like thank everyone for their support and look forward to hearing how the bags worked from the people who purchased them in their upcoming hunts.

How are Pack Out Bags Used

Pack Out Bags Made in IdahoThere are a few common questions people have when they first see our bags. How are Pack Out Bags used? Are they a replacement for my backpack? Pack Out Bags are not a replacement for your backpack. These bags are intended to be carried with you in your backpack so that when you have your animal down, you can fill it with meat and carry it out on your first trip. You can fill both pouches with meat and tie your backpack on top of it, or on one of your lighter loads, you can carry your backpack in one of the pouches with meat in the other pouch to balance your load.  You can carry much more weight in one trip this way with less strain on your back because you are balanced front and back.  This also keeps your regular backpack, where you keep all of your gear and food, from getting bloody.  When you get back to camp, you can either wash out this bag or simply hang it up to dry out and it is ready to be used again.  Since it is machine washable, it is much easier to clean than your regular backpack would be.

Packing Out the Hind Quarters of an Elk

PackOutBagsElkHindQuarters3Hunting in rugged terrain is part of what makes hunting so enjoyable. The challenge and the surroundings are invigorating.  There can also be a very humbling moment when you take down a very large animal and realize the only way to pack this animal out is you. Year after year our family has packed out some nice sized elk just using our bags. One of the remarkable things about Pack Out Bags is the ability to have one person carry out the hind quarters of an elk in one trip. When asked how much weight a bag can hold, the real question is how much weight can the person carrying the pack handle.  You will be surprised at how much more weight you can carry when it is balanced in the front and back and not on your back alone.

One of our favorite times of year is the fall. As soon as the air turns crisp and the days get colder all we can think about is getting ready for the autumn hunt. There is something to be said about hiking into the woods in the dark hours of the morning to find that perfect spot to settle into. There’s this moment when you breathe in that fresh mountain air and look around, truly seeing the beauty that surrounds you. A vast array of orange, maroon, yellow, and green hues cover the forests of Idaho. As you take in that breath, you leave all the worries of day-to-day life behind you and take in the excitement of the hunt. It was on one of these mornings that our family decided to go into business together and share Pack Out Bags with others. As we talked through our ideas and thoughts on the business we decided that if we were going to do this we were going to do it right and stick to our core values.

#1-Family First! Nothing is worth breaking up the family. We will communicate and treat each other with respect and never lose site of who we are.

#2-Pack Out Bags will be a product we are proud to put our name on. They will always be made with high-quality, durable, sustainable fabric.

#3-Pack Out Bags will be made in our home state of Idaho. As we grow this company we want to provide jobs to the people within this beautiful state.

We hope others will appreciate knowing the bags they use when hunting in rugged terrain, harvesting food, or hauling heavy loads are a quality pannier bag made in Idaho.
