ASAT Packs for Hunting

Call us at 1-406-431-0876

ASAT Packs are now made by Wilderness Pack Specialties and are available on this page! They are made with one goal: to create a line of 100% American Made, Berry-compliant, rugged backpacks and equipment designed solely for the hunt. 

These 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 offer Berry-compliant ASAT 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?
