The Eberlestock Gunslinger Pack is an excellent organizational tool. The layout of its compartments, with a large and a small tuck-pocket on the outside, two small accessory compartments, a mid-size compartment in the top-pack, and a large main compartment that has both top and full side-access, lets you load the pack with your gear in a way that makes it predictable to locate whatever items you need immediate access to. You can add external mag pouches and accessory pouches virtually anywhere on the pack. On top of this, there is really no way to adequately describe the superiority of this weapons carriage system over the standard shoulder sling.
We've been shipping these packs to US Special Forces troops, to SWAT units in a growing number of major metro areas, and to virtually every government agency that has weapons related missions. The collective feedback has been very positive. When we ask for remarks about the product, we get quotes like, "awesome." Or, as a scout/sniper with the 5th Special Forces Group put it, "this is the best piece of equipment to come down the pike in 30 years." He said this before we introduced our other packs, but the GS05 is still holding its own as a great little top-loading pack.
Regardless of size, a rifle carried in the GS05 will slip right out of the pack when you need it.
People who've discovered our backpacks have been excited to find them to be excellent tools for doing some of the jobs that they've been training for. Particularly when you're carrying more than one long gun, it's a great way to keep them out of the way, but have them simply, quickly, and readily available. With our packs' triple-reinforced, rugged construction, unbelievable quality, and innovative features, we hope that you, too, will be enthusiastic about using an Eberlestock.
The GS05M Gunslinger is a 2900 cubic inch pack, with extraordinary features that set it apart from any other mid-size pack. The Backscabbard is wide enough to hold most rifles, including assault rifles and rifles with large scopes (DPMS .308 LRR with Leupold 6.5-20 x 50 LR/T & 15 rd. clip shown at left).
The pack is compact and excellent for rappelling. SWAT Teams will find it useful for carriage of both primary and secondary weapons. Features include full side access to the main compartment, hydration bladder housings, multiple pockets with varied sizes and configurations, fully padded harness and back padding, and external compression straps.
Removable waist belt (for traveling, and for a better fit with some tactical gear)

We designed the GS05M to be a lightweight, compact scabbard pack. It has exceptional padding, outclassing other daypacks. It's a great alternative to a drag bag, and provides unparalleled versatility, agility, and mobility, with rapid access to your firearm.
For mobile warriors, it's carry-on sized, and the scabbard duals as a great place to stash a laptop or other quick-access items.
