ALPS OUTDOORZ has a "special" happening right now that may interest some of you.
Their E-Newsletter has a 50% discount available for use. I just ordered a the new CONTENDER X (lists for $229) for $115.
The promo code is WELCOME50
FWIW the newsletter is pretty good too.
Nice! A few things out of stock, but 50% off is good!
I can attest to their bino harness. Pretty good and sturdy, and only $30 after discount!
Thanks. I have a new pack heading my way. Hybrid x
I have several of their packs and very happy with all. The Traverse X has been my go-to day pack for hunting for the past four years.
I bought the Allure (their Ladies pack) for Lady Bowhunter last year and she loves it. I bought a different pack for myself and learned about the Contender X at ATA. Can't wait for it to get here.
For the money they are hard to beat. And, will get the job done. While they aren’t a Kifaru, I hunted an alps pack for 3 years. It carried every thing I killed. My dad and a couple buds still use them. They pack multiple deer apiece every year with no problems.
