Finest Quality

This pack is awesome, the quality is of the highest degree and will last. You can find cheaper, but if you want a pack you can rely on... This is it! Comfortable and well designed for storage and getting to what you need quickly....

Disappointed

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on April 24, 2013
Greatly disappointed. After a lot of research and thought in this purchase, the padding and ventilation was a huge let down. I also own a Gunslinger 2 & Halftrack. Those two have the same, but the Phantom's padding is noticeably less dense, and does not support my BOB load as well. The material doesn't provide the same level of ventilation. Also, there is a zipper on the bottom of the lumbar pad to aid in removing the belt. This is an obvious week point. You can remove the Gunslinger's belt, but it doesn't require the zipper.

The Phantom was designed to be a jack-of-all-trades (combo bag & scabbard, drag bag, or pack alone). In doing so, I think it mastered none of them. I'm so disappointed, I'm returning it.

I recommend getting a Gunslinger 2 and if needed, add a couple 2 or 3L accessory pouches. You get the same thing for a lower price. If you need much bigger, go for the Operator.
Cons: poor padding and ventilation. ...

Awesome pack!

A backpack with a rifle case built in? I never knew one existed until I saw this. What really sold me was the description and video (at the bottom of the page) at Eberlestock's product page: http://eberlestock.com/Phantom%20Backpack.htm

It's super versatile especially with the removable backscabbard, and even if you leave it there. If you're not storing a rifle, just tuck the bottom of the backscabbard in and it looks like a backpack. I can stuff more into this pack than it appears to be able to fit. All the little pouches inside and out really helps to organize. The PALS webbing can be useful even if you don't have extra pouches to mount onto them. Clip a flashlight, radio, pocket knife....

With a full load you'd think this would be crazy uncomfortable. But it actually feels great with the shaped padding on the back of the backscabbard which pads around your spine, and the thick pad that rests at the small of your back. It makes you think, "I really have all this weight on me?"

Despite how my review sounds so far, I don't work for OpticsPlanet or Eberlestock, or any company that would gain by selling more of these.

I can gush on but I'll stop now. If I REAAALLLLYYYY had to nitpick, I'd request that they add a padded compartment (perhaps removeable?) for a laptop, and make the main compartment expandable for a bigger load. The first really isn't necessary--one can purchase a separate laptop sleeve and stuff it in there--and the second would add even ...

Eberlestock Phantom

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, CO Written on March 9, 2012
Outstanding pack with lots of acessory options. Quality construction and scalability. Coyote Brown is somewhat darker than standard colors...may want Dry Earth for better color match.
Pros: Quality construction, scalability
Cons: Color match (Coyote)...
