Find your limits with Wilderness Packs!
At Wilderness Packs we have only one goal, to create hunting packs and equipment that are designed and built to do what they're supposed to do hunt. That means taking the punishment of hunting day after day, year after year, without fail. Guaranteed! Our frames are used daily by the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan and have proven themselves around the world under the most extreme conditions imaginable. From Marco Polo sheep hunting in Uzbekistan to packing generators to high country gold mines on the Rogue River, our packs have done their job year after year.
Wilderness Pack Specialties began with one goal: to create a line of 100% American Made, Berry-compliant, rugged backpacks and equipment designed solely for the hunt. Since 1995, our pack line has thrived under all conditions from the mountains of Afghanistan to Yukon moose hunting in the Arctic Circle to base camp of Mount Everest.
Our packs have withstood the punishment of professional guides day after day, year after year without fail.
Reliability is the key—designing and constructing a pack around the best-sourced materials so you stay safe and comfortable on your hunt. The Wilderness Pack Specialties offers a full line of Berry-compliant packs designed with functional NIR-Compliant, UV-negative materials. The question is, when you are miles from the trailhead will you trust anything but the best?

Our packs are designed to hunt. Period. Our gear line offers the functionality of three separate packs all in one. Take our Compact Frame Combo, for example: lightweight and compressible for quick day hunts, expandable to 3,000 cubic inches of space (plus an additional 1,400-cubic-inch add-on Pelican Pack) for multi-day hunts, and a guaranteed unbreakable pack frame for getting your game out, all in one pack!
When carrying heavy loads, where are you most vulnerable?
If you guessed while downhill, you are correct. Heavy loads can quickly become unbalanced if your pack doesn't allow the weight to be centered low on the hips. Our harness and frame adjustability keeps the Load-Leveraging factor low to ensure you stay balanced and upright on the downhill and side hill.
It's all about comfort. Our Load-Leveraging System ensures you remain completely upright, even under the heaviest load. The system allows for increased frame flexibility, while contouring to your natural back arch.

Harness System – Supporting it all
We offer two superior harness systems for our line of packs. Each pack comes complete with our fully adjustable support for handling loads up to and beyond 120 pounds. Each harness features a no-twist support system, the no-twist support means you can hunt all day in any terrain without the fear of painful hotspots.
Our open-air frame and pack design means you will stay cooler, longer. The Dri-Lex liner ensures moisture is wicked away from your clothing and quickly evaporates so you stay comfortable all day.
Planning to spend more days afield this season? Our super duty harness system is perfect for your light pack into the backcountry, and your heaviest pack out. Featuring Y-20 soft Epifoam, a ¾"-thick foam padding used in orthopedic devices, which goes into each Super Duty back pad and hip belt. Our closed cell foam padding is created using anti-microbial technology.
Our super duty harness offers the same no-twist design as our standard harness, but with an even more plush ride for those long-haul, heavy weight pack trips to the trailhead. The super duty harness is available for most of our pack systems.
Our harness system fully adjusts for users from 5'2" to 6'6", and the hip belt ranges from 30" to 48" with ease.
Handi-Pak – Hike with comfort
Awkward game packing is a thing of the past with our innovative Handi-Pak system. Have you ever tried securing a boned-out game bag full of fresh venison to a pack frame? If so, you may have spent hours flossing parachute cord through a rigid frame all to experience an uncomfortable hike with a shifting load.
Our Handi-Pak is built into each frame assembly, and expands outward to fully support your quartered game and antlers. The adjustability from functional backpack to Handi-Pak carrier means your pack bag stays clean and ready to hunt. Our Xenoy frame and Handi-Pak is easily cleaned and ready for years of use.
Like our pack bag design, the Handi-Pak incorporates our load-leveraging system to ensure you stay upright and comfortable under heavy loads.
Safety and reliability are built into our Handi-Pak. Each of our pack frame systems incorporate a built-in blaze orange safety flap to keep you visible during modern firearm season.
Frames – Flexibility is key
Wilderness Pack Specialties offers several military-grade frames to fit your hunting style and needs. Our Bighorn and Compact frames are constructed of guaranteed unbreakable Xenoy composite material.The Xenoy frames can take the worst abuse and keep on performing, and offer a load rating of 120 pounds. Carrying weight-to-frame weight is what sets these frames apart.
Our Yukon frame assembly offers the same flexibility and control as the Xenoy frames, but with a carbon fiber reinforced polypropylene structure. The finished frame weighs-in at less than two pounds, and can handle loads of up to 200 pounds. The Yukon Frame also features adjustability for users from 5'2" tall to 6'10".
All frame designs are built with flexibility in mind. A rigid pack foundation creates hotspots and body fatigue due to awkward movement and body position during the hunt. Our frame series offers solid load-carrying capability with the added flexibility to contour to your body on the fly.
Building the perfect hunting pack is similar to creating the perfect recipe: every ingredient adds its own undeniable flavor to the end result. The same attention goes to our choice pack materials. The end result is a 100% BERRY Compliant pack for the hunter.
So, what does it mean to be BERRY Compliant?
BERRY Compliant means that every component, from frame to thread, is 100% American made, including all manufacturing and assembly. We take pride is saying we truly are Made in America, with each pack being hand-built in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
Technical fabrics – Made to hunt
Each pack bag comes fully lined with high tensile nylon fabrics—the same material designed for U.S. military parachute backpacks. Other ingredients include Dri-Lex which offers two-zone comfort lining for back ventilation.
Our packs come standard with our Wilderness camo pattern, True Timber, which is designed to blend with a wide array of hunting situations. Hunting high country sage? True Timber offers a blend of light and dark green with muted tan undertones to blend perfectly. The light to dark contrast also makes the True Timber pattern ideal for shaded woods as well.
All packs offer UV-resistant materials allowing you to remain invisible while stalking your trophy of a lifetime.
We also offer an array of other color options for our packs. Be sure to check out color availability on each product page, or by calling (541) 884-0089 for more information or to discuss your favorite pattern.
Latching – Keeping it tight
Every buckle on a Wilderness Pack is guaranteed unbreakable. Whether it is our slip-free strap keepers for a firm pack-to-frame connection, or our Nylon waist and sternum buckles, you can rest assured you’ll stay supported.
Comfort. Reliability. Safety.
