Mini-Me. Don't ask why we named it that; we were just having a little fun. But like its Hollywood namesake, the thing that makes this pack unique is that it has all of the hallmarks of its larger brethren, distilled into a tight little unit. It's a pack whose looks will deceive you.
The Mini-Me is a hydration pack but more; this little baby could rightly be called the "Transformer." It has an expansion system that at first glance looks conventional. Start un-zipping its wrap-around zipper and you get more space for something long. But when you keep going, you realize that you've opened up a tunnel for the insertion of either our A1SS Shotgun Scabbard or our A2SS Scoped Rifle Scabbard. Slide in one of these, and you've got a rig that'll make carrying your gun as close to carrying a biathlon rifle as you can get without getting the real thing. And of course, you don't want a biathlon rifle for hunting anyway. You want to carry your choice of weapon, an included premium 3-liter (100 oz) hydration bladder, a pull-out hip belt, and a secret compartment with a deployable Bird Bag inside. All of which you get with the Mini Me. Other features include full-depth pockets for spotting scope or tripod, an organizer pocket, grapple compression strap, and more.
400 c.i. main bag + 900 c.i. bird bag
Weighs 3lbs 8oz.
Dims: 19L X 8W X 3D
Side Scabbards and ButtBuckets are sold separately (the pack is a terrific small-scale pack without them, for general field use).
Mini-Me. It's way more than a hydration pack.
The A1SS, A2SS or A2LS Scabbards can insert into expansion tunnel. Securing the scabbard is easy, using the integrated Pad Lock system and strap tether.
-The pull-out BirdBag provides 900 cubic inches of ventilated storage. Combined with the main compartment, the Mini-Me has a total of 1,400 cubic inches of space.
The Mini-Me also makes a great ultra-light bow pack. Mount our ButtBucket to the lower rung of the Padlock webbing on the side of the pack, and run its Ripcord Tether from the right shoulder harness, through the upper pocket attachment link, then around your bow and back to the tether mount... and you're set for hands-free, easy-retrieval bowhunting!
