The “Alternative” design is based around the “Antidote”. They are almost identical, however the “Alternative” is connected to the “Grip” frame and the “Antidote” has its own independent suspension. This is why we call it the “Alternative”.

Carries a gun or a bow
Each one of our Remedy 7 packs share the gun/bow boot feature. It quickly attaches to the outside of the pack using two 3/4” buckles. It features another 3/4” strap and buckle to secure the limb of your bow in place. This strap can also be threaded between your gun stock and sling for added security. When not in use the boot can be detached and stored away inside one of the many pockets on the pack.
Each pack needs a way of lashing items to the outside of it. The “Alternative” has 2 side compression straps on either side of the pack for strapping down items such as Tripods, shooting sticks, or Walking sticks. At the bottom of the side you’ll find a sleeve designed to catch the bottom of these items to reassure they do not fall down.
3 Ltr Hydration Pocket
The “Alternative” is equipped with an internal hydration pocket capable of excepting a 3ltr bladder. The top of the pocket includes a webbing loop for tying your bladder off to keep it from sagging .
Main Compartment Access
There are three ways to gain access to the main compartment. The traditional way is through the weather guard collar located on the top of the pack. The second and third are located on each side. The vertical zipper opens the side of the pack from top to bottom giving you a large enough opening to gain access to your gear easily. We designed these side access points for simple reasons that mean a lot when you’re in the field. The vertical zippers are straight. Straight zippers function better than zippers that have angles or arches. With the straight zipper design, the slider can glide open and closed with ease. With two access points on either side of the pack you can gain entry to the main compartment while carrying your weapon on the pack. Because the zipper travels from top to bottom your gear on the bottom is never hard to reach.
External Optics Pocket
The optics pocket is located directly in the center on the face of the pack. This keeps the load balanced. It’s large enough to accept most spotting scope designs available today. Inside the main compartment are two more flat zipper pockets for other loose gear. On the outside of this pocket there are two flat pockets located on either side, these are great for quick access to small items like scents and calls.
The lids main function is storage. It has one main compartment on top and one flat pocket underneath. It has plenty of room to store lunch for the day or bulky items such as range finder’s, radio’s, knives or saws. The lids other functions are vertical compression and protection against weather. It moves up and down with the top weather collar on the pack as your load increases or decreases.
Detachable “Grip” Frame
Just like several of the Remedy 7 pack designs the “Alternative” attaches to the ”Grip” frame. The bag attaches to the frame by using two large toothed zippers on either side of the pack. Once the bag is removed, the frame can then be used separately to haul loads or coupled together with the “Alternative” bag by using the six buckles provided to fasten the bag around the load on the “Grip” frame.
