Alan: That BUSHCRAFTER pack looks like something I could use. How high does it carry on your shoulders? Does it interfere with portaging a canoe?

Doesn't sit up too high. I've portaged a canoe with it a fair number of times and never had an issue with it.

There's a draw string at the top of the pack opening which nicely cinches down around the barrel neck to hold it in place, which leaves the lid exposed and easy to access.

Bill, do you have any pictures of how the suspension and harness are attached to that Ostrom pack? I really like the idea of pair bags whether side zip duffel style or some variant of roll or fold over top bag.

Best regards,


Lance
Sorry, not a clue. Just read about it after Ostrom ceased production. maybe 10 years ago? Saw a used one for sale before I ever soloed.

I purchased a 511 Tactical backpack for reasons other than canoeing, their backpacks are impressive.

Hello, have you a particular model in mind (as they seem to have various models available on Amazon, Canada) and if so have you ever used it while portaging a canoe at the same time.
Thanks,
G.
I would think the RUSH 2.0 55 liter pack would be good for canoeing. I just purchased a AMP 12 to carry my Ruger TD rifle to the range and as a bug out bag, not planning on using it for canoeing.
