  • What does a Barney's pack look like?

    Hey guys,

    First post here at the forum. I'm looking at doing a sheep hunt this year, and as such am looking for packs. All I keep hearing about on this site are how great the Barney's packs are. The trouble is, I have no idea what a "Barney's pack" even is!? I understand it's an external frame pack with a bag attatched, but then again so is a camp trails pack. It look like their website is down too, so that rules that out.

    Anyway, just wondering if any of you guys have pics of your Barney's pack? I'm trying to get an idea of their suspension system, as I am a pretty skinny guy, and sometimes the waistbelts on packs don't fit me properly.

    Thanks very much. Cheers.

    I got asked this question a couple months ago so I took some pics to better give an idea. I have the carnivore frame with the hunter bag.(6700 cu in I believe). Most I think have pinnacle bag which is like 1000-1500 more cubic inches and also has one big compartment rather than the hunter bag which is two main compartments.

    I hope these help:

      Those work perfectly! Thanks very much. Looks like a guy could haul a lot of weight with one of those.

        Hunter Pack

        Alaska Lanche,
        Like you, I went with the Hunter Pack. I felt the Pinnacle was a bit large. I had a fear of filling it to capacity and then not being able to carry it. I have used the frame on a hike-in bear hunt (no bear) but did not have the pack yet. I am looking forward to filling it with a large ram this year...we'll see. Either way, I love the frame system. It is really comfortable.

                  The first time I scrolled right past the pic of you walking down the beach, then something drew my attention back to it .....and ......yep....you are wearing military snowshoes....

                    dang straight, i love those shoes!! light weight, oversized, durable can be used for anything, and i just wear a toe strap, no heal strap, hate having my foot trapped in a shoe that busted thru the crust and got bound up in some bent over alders. only shoes i own actually. no good in powdery stuff though, but perfect for spring snow conditions!

                      Someone walking down that beach a half hour later might wonder what the heck kind of bird made those prints...

                          How much weight were you carrying in that first photo? I think that puts the 72 pounds I've done to shame!

                            the first photo ain't all that bad, mostly fluff, its probably in the high 80 range. Did one hunt in late sept for sheep years back and had to stack the clients pack like that again, but his was already 60 or so and mine was already in the 70's, made for a long day. The barney pack is great for weight up to the mid 150's then its all just heavy. Stuff around 200 is just heavy, not sure how much the pack does for you then, cause i've never had that much weight in any other pack. But loads of 50-100 are a breeze in a barneys pack..the suspension is wonderfull.
                            i'd like to try a new internal pack for a sheep hunt once, but i'm afraid two days into i'd be kickin' my self...lol
