If you are a backcountry upland hunter then you know the value of having a quality hunting vest that is capable of carrying the necessities but is also lightweight. I had a hard time finding a vest that fit my small frame. I tried multiple brands and ended up with something less traditional: the Camelbak Helena 20.
With a 2.5L hydration capacity and multiple zippered pouches, this versatile daypack weighs only 1 lb. 7 ounces and is ergonomically designed to hug the body so that you have the freedom to swing and move without feeling any dead weight sliding around. The waist belt has two zippered pouches each able to hold 11 shells or a small cell phone. The large outer pocket is big enough for a few Chukars or you can unzip the top and shove a pheasant in there. This pack is ideal for those putting a lot of miles under foot who want minimal weight on their back, plenty of water for dogs and a place to store small game birds – $99.
