Quick question for the crowd. I'm running the Darin Fink this year and I've settled on (purchased and set up too) the HPG Ute pack. 

The only lingering question is what is the best way to attach a rifle to this pack other than just looping the straps around it. 

Is there a rifle carrier similar to the Exo Mountain Gear Rifle Carrier or the Kifaru Gun Bearer that will attach easily and securely to this bag? Both of those systems look solid but looking at then on the internet I have no idea how they attach and Kifaru says their attachment method is propreitary. 

 

Thanks guys!

Not sure if this meets your needs, but could this one work for you?  There are a couple other variations of this one on the Eberlestock website, as well as an add-on buttstock cover.  Hope this helps!

We have two different products on the horizon for carrying rifles on a pack. Already sent in for production sampling. They're both extremely simple so should be able to get into production quickly. The problem with the gunbearer is that it is almost impossible not to flag people if they're ahead of you on a hill.

We are fortunate in this matter that your conduct will be your marker and, thus, your reputation. The conduct of others on this forum has been, and will continue to be, their marker, and thus, their reputation. In the west, a person invests in one's reputation carefully. - 112Papa

Those new products sound really cool!  It will be interesting to see your take on them.  Could be another game-changer product!

There are two ways a kifaru gun bearer attach either a velcro wrapped around a 2" belt or larger and kifaru's patented ladder lock system to their belt. Similar to Pals. I will take a look on where you could attach it to a UTE. Where is your preference for mounting? Left, right or straight down the center?

I checked it out. You can attache the long velcro Kifaru one to the Prairie belt and it will hand down enough to be centered on the side of the UTE. The velcro is long enough to wrap around the belt near where it attaches to the pack. Strapping for fast retrieval might we different. If you cover shipping, I can send you both parts and you can see if it works for you.
