MISSOULA, Mont. — The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and Eberlestock are excited to announce the launch of their redesigned Team Elk pack.
Weighing 6.5 pounds with a volume of 2,567 cubic inches, upgrades include a pack that separates from the frame for hauling meat, enlarged stretch pockets that are easier to access, a redesigned hip belt with more padding for added comfort, and a spacious, floating top lid that extends to assist the pack out.
Other prominent Team Elk pack features are a patented bolt action scabbard, comfortable aluminum frame, updated fabrics and materials, and a hydration sleeve and hook.
“We made improvements in the pack design specifically with the backcountry elk hunter in mind to make it more functional, durable and effective,” said Glen Eberle, long-time RMEF supporter and life member. “By creating an even better hunting pack with our partners at RMEF, we are thrilled to elevate our relationship and continue to give back to a conservation organization we strongly believe in.”
Eberlestock and RMEF unveiled the original Team Elk pack in January 2013, with 10 percent of each Team Elk pack sold contributed directly to RMEF. Since then, sales generated more than $600,000 for RMEF’s mission.
“We have a strong, long-standing friendship and partnership with Glen and Eberlestock,” said Steve Decker, RMEF chief revenue officer. “The Team Elk pack has been a favorite among our members and elk hunters since its inception. Its new modifications and convenient features make it a must-have hunting pack.”
