SLUMBERJACK Wild-Her Pack Review - RCG Product Review
I recently had the opportunity to review the Slumberjack Wild-Her pack for women. Slam Dunk Winner in my book! Every outdoors woman should have one of these versatile packs.
The Wild-Her Pack by Slumberjack is a pack specifically geared for women. In my case it had to fit a 5'11 woman with a fairly large chest. I wasn't sure it was up the challenge because if it was like most every other women's version of anything I have tried, I was afraid it would be too small. Not the case. I found the shoulder straps, chest and waist straps are all very easy to adjust and maneuver.
On 12/31 (New Year's Eve) I set out to try and fill my D16 (San Diego County) Muzzleloader, either sex tag. The weather had been horrible the previous two weeks so I hadn't gotten a chance to head out earlier. Everything from heavy rain, to Santa Ana winds to 8+ inches of snow where I wanted to hunt. Some might call me wimpy, but if you have ever hunted the mountains in Julian, CA you know that slipping and falling means big trouble. This was a DIY hunt in the Cleveland National Forest. I had to get out because it was the last day I could fill my tag, however the weather still as uncooporeative.
Since I was hunting alone I needed the Wild-Her to help me carry everything I needed and also offer me comfort doing it. I had absolutely no problem fitting everything I needed into the pack. In fact, I had plenty of room left over. I was carrying my muzzleloader, binoculars, Natures Paint face camo, ammo, sabots, caps, license, keys, phone, first aid kit, gloves, trash bags, water and snacks. Even with all of that stuff I had so much extra room! I used probably 1/3 of the space I had available.
I packed everything from my car into the pack, added my muzzleloader and set off. It was rainy and cold that day and I was wearing a large jacket. I had no problem putting on the jacket and adjusting the pack to fit over it, using only one hand. The adjustable straps both on the top part of the pack and the waistline were easy and convenient. It fit easily and comfortably over the jacket.
I found it was easy to secure my rifle to the pack. As I hiked, my rifle stayed secure. I never felt like it was moving or sliding.
It was wet, foggy and raining on and off that day and I was worried about my stuff getting wet, particularly my phone and the White Hot gunpowder pellets but that also turned out to be a non-issue. I don't believe the pack is waterproof however none of my items got wet. Everything stayed dry and safe in the pack.
I saw a couple of spikes that day but didn't end up taking a shot at anything however this Slumberjack pack features some additional items I didn't use but are worth mentioning:
- It features a built-in rifle rest
- It has external compression panel with 2 large pockets & doubles as a trophy carrying system
- It is hydration compatible
The Slumberjack is beautifully decorated with Kryptek's Highlander camouflage. Not only is Kryptek one of my favorite lines, but also one of my favorite camo patterns. This pack looks good and functions beautifully. I can't wait to get out and try it while bowhunting
