Product Overview

Ample room for multi-day backcountry hunts.

The new BEARTOOTH 80 pack is built for the hunter who values organization and varied access to the essentials. Built on our new Guide Light MT Frame™, this pack offers major load-hauling capability and features a quick-attach frame capture for easier Overload™ feature usage. The unique 270° “duffel-style” zipper opening offers easy access no matter how it’s packed – from the top, side, or bottom. Multiple pockets both outside and on the main opening’s inside flap keep all the essentials close at hand.



  • The new GUIDE LIGHT MT FRAME™ (Mystery Tech) continues the load carriage tradition of the tried- and-true GUIDE LIGHT FRAME™ and its rigid yet dynamic frame system, but with a few discrete changes. Utilizing custom-developed SJ Autolock buckles throughout, this new hardware collection provides the perfect blend of strength and weight. The 500D Light Plus fabric delivers high tensile and tear resistance, key characteristics for a robust, purpose-driven hunting frame.
  • The patented Futura Yoke easily micro adjusts to the torso length allowing the proper amount of stand-off between the back and frame.
  • The five-point waist belt incorporates the highly functional Redirect system and delivers solid weight distribution and eliminates slippage over your hips, regardless of the load.

    Beartooth 80 or Metcalf?

    Posted by Jake on Apr 27th 2020

    This is my first dedicated hunting pack. Before I spent that much money, I was debating for a long time between going with the Beartooth or the Metcalf. I live in Colorado around some good elk hunting units and wanted something I could do a 4-5 day backpack hunt as well as a day hunt if I was able to get a tag around our house. I was hesitant to go with the Beartooth because it’s listed more as a 6-8 day hunting pack where the Metcalf was listed as a day hunt / 3-4 day pack. I was afraid for a day hunt the Beartooth would be to large and items in the pack would be sloshing or moving around. Once the Beartooth came in my concerns went away. The pack cinches down extremely small and has the ability to hold even smaller items tight in the pack and prevents them from sloshing around. I plan on using it for shed hunting hear in Colorado next week so we will see how it holds up once I get into the woods. But so far just test fitting the pack is very comfortable and has tons of small pockets for storage. At first glance all the straps and clips seem confusing but once you put the pack on and start adding gear its pretty easy to navigate and determine which straps do what. Overall, I think the Beartooth will do what I need perfect. I’d say if you are going for more day hunts, truck hunting or shorter backcountry trips I’d say the Metcalf would be the perfect choice. If you are looking for a day hunt and also have the ability to do a 5-6 day backcountry hunt I’d say the Beartooth is your ticket. With the ability to cinch the bag down my thought is I’d prefer additional 900 cubic inches of capacity along with a slight weight increase provided by the Beartooth over the Metcalf.

    Awesome in every way. I own a MR Pintler as well, and this is like the upgraded big brother. The new belt system is definitely an improvement, no more pouches, spray or holsters pulling the belt web slack down when you unclip. All my belt goodies stay put now, plus more/better padding. Next biggest improvement is the access to the load hauling shelf, which is just a half dozen quick clip buckles and you’re in. For 5,100+ cubic, it packs down awesomely small. Well thought out pockets and web locations. More organization options for compartmentalizing gear, which I really appreciate...not too much though. Horseshoe shaped main compartment zip is great. Pack rides really well, most comfortable yoke system I’ve tried, and I’ve had a ton of backpacking and hunting specific packs. Haven’t hiked with more than 40lbs in it, yet, have maybe 50 miles on it. But, I’d imagine packing out a big critter with this pack would be as comfortable as it can be. Hydration sleeve fits a 3L bladder no prob. I’m really happy and impressed with this pack. Weighs 7lbs dry, but the frame is rock solid. Good zippers, quality materials and construction. People complaining about dry pack weights on packs designed to carry out massive loads should try it with their Ultralight backpacking type packs and see how they hold up.
