Eberlestock Blue Widow

Eberlestock Blue Widow

The Blue Widow was introduced upon the request of bow hunters who had wondered at first glance what they would do with the rifle scabbard on Eberlestock’s Dragonfly and Just One packs. Most of those who used the J107 found that they like the scabbard after all, because it’s a great place to put things like arrows and grunt tubes. The Blue Widow is basically a Dragonfly (another pack from Eberlestock) with the scabbard layer removed. The main vertical pockets and utility expansion compartment are attached directly to the main frame panel. They added a larger Flex Chassis which can fold forward for use as a seat. The Blue Widow has been designed so that if you are a gun hunter and like a scabbard, one can be added to the pack. Remove the fanny pack / top compartment, as shown at left, and you get a very compact and capable full-format pack that will behave as a daypack when lightly loaded, but will expand to carry heavy loads of meat and gear.
