    Drew,
    I bought this pack a couple years ago, have used it for a day pack on a 5 day mule deer hunting trip, and added the super spike duffel for a muliti day backpacking trip. Havent had the opportunity to haul out any game yet. Love this pack, very comfortable, I had 50 lbs in it last August and didnt really feel it, no soreness in my shoulders, etc. The detachable daypack is roomy but if you put too much it, it seems to "Droop" against your back, needs a more substantial hip belt to keep it vertical when loaded.

    I don't own a J107 but I have the next size down, the J34. It's still a 'Just One' pack. I don't have a lot of experience with packs but I did a lot of reading before purchasing the J34; and when I got it I was not disappointed one bit. It hauls heavy loads easily and is still light enough for a daypack. I love the scabbard on it and how you can expand it when you need to. The side pockets really sold me because I can put my tripod on one side and my spotting scope on the other. The side loops and compression straps are also great. I can't wait to strap down a nice 6x6! It has many adjustments and fits my fat butt like a glove. I'm 5'10" 190 lbs.

    I have been looking at Eberlestock packs a lot the last few days, I can't really see the advantage of the J107 over J34 other than it has a little more room which I don't think I will need. For less money and a little less weight the J34 seems like the way to go to me, can anyone point out any other advantages that I might have missed? I found a J34 today for $249 and am thinking about buying it within the next week or so since they only had 2 in stock.

    The 107 is a stiffer pack and also has the stays that can be bent to match the shape of your back.
