Fanny pack

Recommended Posts

Apparently im in the minority and hunters today want to carry way more than I need because every new fannypack is huge, has way too many pockets and is made of very loud material. I’m looking for another one of these. Mines getting very tattered and they don’t make them like this anymore. I want fleece or another quiet material with no outside pockets, cup-holders  and no padding on the belt. I don’t care about color or camouflage. If you have something that you’re willing to part with please let me know. 
 

This is what I use now and would love a spare or 2.

Mines pretty similar and I do have another somewhere, with that same tree bark pattern, along with a one piece coverall that’s now a few sizes too small for me.  
 

Both the tree bark coveralls and Fanny pack are not soft material though, and the zipper was getting bad on the pack.  I could see where they would be noisy.  
 

An older, retired hunting buddy gave me this realtree pattern one about 10 years ago and  it’s all I’ve used ever since.  It easily holds all I need to carry and the zippers, and strap adjustment work great.  It’s also covered in soft material.  If I could find another like it, I would buy it in a heartbeat.  
 

Sad to hear that it doesn’t sound like they are making them anymore.  When and if this one goes to crap, I’ll have to start carrying that old tree bark one again.

this one is similar in style and vintage. Seems like simplicity has gone out the window these days, most backpacks are far too big as well. 
looks like this can be worn in different ways. Sides can be removed for less storage

I just bought a fanny pack this year, but not sure if its big enough to hold all of the items I lug into the woods for a sit.  I figure that, next year, Im gonna make it a goal to downsize as bit so that my im humpin less weight.

I just don’t understand how people need so much crap. I’m miles from the truck and way further from help. I hunt daylight until usually after dark and I carry a rope, a knife, small saw, gutting gloves,extra bullets/reloads and a candy bar.  I have to put a puffy vest in it to keep everything from rattling around because I can’t find enough crap to fill that fanny pack.

I have that one and it’s much noisier and less comfortable than what I have now.

I downsized many years ago.  Lots of stuff I carry is multi-purpose.  An original Leatherman tool gets used once on a while. That can do hundreds of jobs.  The butt-out tool also makes a good drag handle, attached to 3 ft of nylon rope.  A compass can be used to tell time (I’ve heard but haven’t done it).  I do carry (2) of those in there and (2) lights (headlamp and small flashlight), as well as waterproof matches and a small lighter “just in case”.  That’s it for redundancy.  
 

A few quart sized ziplock bags work for hearts, livers, nuts and other snacks.  I like to unwrap candy bars and protein bars and keep them in those bags which are far less noisy to open.  
 

A Gerber folding saw works for cutting thru pelvis bones (I always open the deer up good after gutting to make extra sure that everything is real clean back there) and for clearing branches.  
 

I’ve cut most of the fingers off my rubber gutting gloves now, and am going to have to spring for another pair before best season.  Those work great for keeping snow and rain out of my ML muzzle.  
 

I’ve hunted more with that than any other weapon this year.  Hopefully, it will go off if I see a few tonight.  The charge has been in there for over a month now.  
 

That, and a small roll of surveyors ribbon to mark blood trails is all I carry in my Fanny pack.

What about a compass, binocs, water and a piece of fruit? Also, when Im using my climber, I have to wear my harness, meaning Im also lugging my safety harness straps and leg loop, just in case.

Compass and map are in bino harness. I don’t carry water, fruit or any food other than a king sized candy bar in case of emergency. 
 

I should add I do wear a small bino harness from Alaska guide wear. It contains bino’s, folded map, lensatic compass, can of chew, pin on ball compass and sandwich bag containing baby wipes.
