The Traverse EPS can carry all the gear you could possibly want to bring to the stand, or accompany you on a multi-day backcountry hunt with 3300 cubic inches of storage that is until you need more. The Traverse EPS features an Expandable Pack Section (EPS). Just unzip the EPS portion of the pack and you will find an additional 1200 cubic inches of storage is there when you need it for a total of 4500. The EPS section is designed for hauling out game after a successful hunt and it is vented to allow your harvest to cool on your way out of the backcountry. It is also great for larger items such as tripods, camera arms, or bulky clothing. The EPS section is close to your body allowing the heavy loads to be manageable by keeping them close to your torso. The top-of-the-line "H" frame design and multi-layer foam waist belt with a PE outer layer that will make the perfect combination for carrying heavy loads comfortably. The key to carrying weight comfortably is to have a strong frame and a rock-solid, adjustable suspension and that's exactly what the Traverse has, making it one of the most advanced internal-frame packs in the industry. The Traverse EPS also has a weapon carrying system that utilizes the two front wing pockets and a drop down weapon pocket to carry your compound bow or rifle securely. There is a padded spotting scope pocket that will fit most of the larger spotting scopes and keeps them from getting banged up, but still keeps it and the tripod easily accessible.
