Alps Outdoorz Allure Backpack

The consumer world may have a few products that are unneccessarily gendered—we don’t really need pens just for women, thank you—but you might be surprised that backpacks aren’t among them. Women’s bodies have a different shape, a different weight distribution and a different spinal curve, and that’s the challenge ALPS OutdoorZ is tackling with the Allure Women’s Stand Pack. It’s designed for women who hunt from a stand, either a ground blind or tree stand, although it will make a fine companion for just about any outdoor outing you have in mind.

One of the most important things a backpack can do for you is to distribute the weight across your hips and shoulders, because the human spine really isn’t all that sturdy (all things considered). The Allure does that with contoured shoulder straps and a two-piece, removable waist belt, as well as a fully adjustable sternum strap. Of course, it’s also about comfort and convenience. The Allure offers a channeled air mesh back and waist belt for maximum ventilation when you’re hunting in warm weather, or during vigorous exertion. Then there are the little details that make the Allure easy to use. It’s built on an L-shaped frame that makes it possible to stand the Allure up on the ground—no more irritating toppling and spilling.

The Allure has a 9-gallon capacity with tons of pockets inside and out. Even the waistband has pockets! There’s a side accessory pouch that can be used with the pack or removed for on-the-go essentials. Integrated into the pack is a drop-down pocket to secure a firearm or bow for hands-free travel.

Best of all? A percentage of the proceeds from sales of the Allure pack go to support the Shoot Like A Girl mentoring program. The pack is available in Mossy Oak Country or Realtree Edge camo patterns; MSRP is $149.99. Click here for more information, or to purchase.
