Eberlestock J107H Dragonfly Backpack is one of the few backpacks that can switch from a compressed day pack to a fully-loaded workhorse with just a few short steps. A new addition to the Eberlestock Just One line, just one Dragonfly can fit all your hiking, hunting, and outdoor carry needs. This Eberlestock Just One backpack's Cam Expansion System is the key to this backpack's versatility. Two vertical pouches make up the bulk of the Eberlestock J107H Dragonfly's front storage space when in day pack mode, but you can add a third, larger pouch simply by unzipping the middle of the pack. The large mesh center pouch functions as a meat pocket normally, and as a waterproof compartment when you cover the mesh with the included nylon cover. With the addition of an optional Eberlestock Spike Duffel or Eberlestock Super Spike, the Eberlestock Dragonfly reaches its full potential as a large multi-day pack.
Even in day pack mode, the Eberlestock J107H Dragonfly Pack has storage compartments of every size, shape, and function. Long time Eberlestock fans will recognize the Backscabbard integrated weapon scabbard in use with the Hunting Dragonfly. The scabbard can tuck up under the pack when it's not in use. Four external tuck pockets on the Dragonfly are ideal for smaller accessories that you need easy access to, and a special pocket on the top assembly is designed exclusively for hydration systems. Additional storage can be added by using the network of PALS webbing to securely attach an Eberlestock pouch to the exterior of the pack. And if there's not a pocket or pouch that can hold a key piece of equipment, simply lash it to the exterior of the Eberlestock DragonFly Expandable Pack with the vertical and horizontal over-sized compression straps. If you're taking a short jaunt away from the campsite, the removable top assembly can make a convenient carrying companion. The top assembly features a hydration pocket and two other compartments; simply unclip the top from the rest of the pack, unfurl the waist belt, and don the assembly for an instant fanny pack.
The Eberlestock Dragon Fly Hunting Packs were designed to carry whatever you can lift, so they incorporate a support system that makes that extra weight seem lighter than air. The main support pad is adjustable with the easily accessible aluminum stays, so you can customize the framesheet to the contours of your back. An extra-thick lumbar pad and a generous waist belt distributes the weight of the Eberlestock Hunting Dragonfly to your hips, not your shoulders. And if you're carrying lots of heavy equipment, the compression straps will help secure and evenly distribute your load out, placing the weight closer to your spine for easier weight management.
The Eberlestock J107H Dragonfly Hunting Backpack differs from its brother, the Eberlestock J107M Military Dragonfly, in just a few details, but they're important details. The scabbard on the civilian version is smaller than the military Dragonfly, so you can't carry larger weapons without an applicable Side Scabbard. The civilian Dragonfly has a mesh center pocket instead of a nylon pocket, allowing you to carry heavy loads of meat. And while the military Dragonfly has a radio rack in the interior wall, the Eberlestock J107H Dragon Fly Pack uses that spaces for storage. Whether you're taking a short hike with the family or embarking on a long-term hunting trip, the Eberlestock J107H Waterproof Dragonfly Backpack lets you carry everything with the agility of a dragonfly.
