ALPS OutdoorZ, premiere manufacturer of extreme-duty hunting packs and gear for big-game hunters, has been awarded by NRA Publications staff the 2020 American HunterGolden Bullseye “Gear of the Year” Award for its Hybrid X pack.

The Hybrid X is a western-inspired hunting pack designed to work as a robust daypack as well as a meat-hauler. Combining an internal meat-hauling frame and a detachable 2,750 cu/in top-load pack, the Hybrid X can accommodate the gear needed for a day in the backcountry and carry the meat out after a successful hunt.

“Because all of the product development team at ALPS OutdoorZ are dedicated hunters,” said ALPS OutdoorZ CEO Dennis Brune, “we understand the challenges our fellow hunters face in the pursuit of their outdoor passions. That’s why we design and manufacture the kind of gear we want to use and that we can rely on to get the job done. It is an honor to have the staff of American Hunter recognize the Hybrid X pack for its innovation, reliability, and value, and to present us with the 2020 American Hunter Golden Bullseye ‘Gear of the Year’ Award “.
