What Is a Rifle Scabbard Backpack?

Tactical Rifle BackpackA rifle scabbard is a sheath for your rifle. They resemble pistol holsters that people wear on their belt. The idea behind them is to protect the weapon yet ensuring it is easily accessible for you. A rifle scabbard backpack uses the same theory, but it is ideal for hikers since it also has a backpackto carry other items along on your hike. This means you can carry your camera, cell phone, ammo,  snacks, ropes, and your knife in your backpack and have your hands free. Best of all, the scabbard will ensure that your gun is tucked safely away, but within easy reach.

Who Would Need a Scabbard Backpack?

A backpack rifle holder is ideal for anyone who ventures into the great outdoors. You can use it when hunting, camping, hiking, kayaking, and more. In every situation where you need a backpack to carry your personal items and would benefit from having your most favorite rifle close by. If not for your own personal use, you can use it to give a gift to someone who loves the great outdoors.

Do They Hold All Gun Types?

A typical scabbard is able to hold a variety of small pistols. You can also choose a saddle rifle scabbard for those who ride horses. The backpack style is typically designed for larger rifles. To give you a clearer idea of what is available, you should check out the scabbards below.

Rifle Carrying Backpack Options

Eberlestock Gunrunner Pack

Rifle BackpackThis minimalistic, lightweight, rifle pack allows you to hunt hands-free, but keep your rifle within easy reach. When you aren’t carrying your rifle, you can fold the scabbard and clip it to the bottom of the pack. This turns the scabbard into a large pocket which can also be used (see it here). There are compression straps and side webbing. Most reviewers say that it is large enough to hold a 10 mag, but probably not much more than that. Current Gunrunner Pack Pricing here⇒
