The editorial staff at Petersen's Hunting conducts annual field tests on hundreds of outdoor products to determine their list of best-in-class. These products embody the ideal combination of quality, craftsmanship, ingenuity and value. For 2015, Petersen's Hunting has selected the Traverse X as the best of the best in the pack category.
“The toughest part of selecting a backcountry pack is finding one that's not too bulky for a day in the field while providing enough room to haul a load of meat back to the trailhead. The 2,900-cubic-inch Traverse X covers both duties in a smart pack designed by hunters. Built of bullhide-tough 1,680-denier nylon with Hypalon accents at all stress points, it won't fail under heavy loads. Wing pockets are fleece lined to protect optics and feature mesh pouches to secure tripods and shooting sticks. Once a hunter's hands are bloody, a meat shelf pulls out the bottom of the pack to secure a quarter or a meat bag for the pack out.” – Petersen's Hunting Editorial Staff
