wool Backpack

I am looking for a small light wool backpack for tracking. It doesn't have to be big. Any ideas? I need something the beech whips wont make too much noise hitting. I understand what will happen if it gets wet, but after last year i'll take my chances.

Thanks
CP

Take a look at dayone camo. They make them in a soft quiet fleece. Not cheap but high quality. Also look at bison gear packs. They custom make their packs in wool, hemp and wolf skin. I have their lost river lumbar pack. Can't say enough good things about it.

Yes to the fleece pack. Mine is a Cabela's that I've had for over 20 years. It's light, quiet, and dries fast. Nothing fancy but enough room for anything I want to carry. Padded shoulder straps and a sternum strap help.

Why not just make your own from a surplus store blanket and some craft store webbing? A simple Duluth Scout style pack would only take an hour or two, at most.

I have a Woolrich jack shirt (coat) with two big pockets inside the back. You can always have them sewn in at most drycleaning shops, which is what the Benoits did before Beaglewear made coats for them.

With the big back pocket inside the coat you don't need a pack and you won't have the strap on your shooting shoulder, which is what I personally don't like about packs. I do like the pack Bioguide suggests.

Dan , I have a small backpack that I got from Cabelas 2 years ago with only one strap that goes diagonally across your chest and frees up your shooting shoulder.
It is great for hunting with a lite load of water and basic essentials. Works great for me , even use it for hiking.
