We recently completed a few custom made beavertail for Camelbak HAWG and TriZip. Essentially, the beavertail is sort of like a flap that attaches to the front of the pack. It enables additional carry options for the pack. The name ‘beavertail’ is a general term used to describe this ‘flap’ attachment but pack makers like Mystery Ranch has their own versions called ‘Stick It’ (though it seems they are no longer in production). Our customers who consists of motor-cross enthusiasts came to us with their own design for a few sets of beavertail for Camelbak HAWG and TriZip.
The beavertail is a useful attachment for any pack. However, they are mostly applicable only on packs that are military orientated/ inspired. This is because the beavertail requires existing attachment points for it to work. Military type of packs are usually loaded with Molle attachment points and will have no issues getting a beavertail on. Modification in the form of adding attachment points may be necessary for the more common recreational packs.
These set of beavertail for Camelbak HAWG and TriZip are made based on the designs our customer requested. With custom made beavertail, you can have it made to suit your needs. Choose the color, features and fabric you like! On these beavertails, we added zippered pockets, velcro panels as well as molle rows as customer’s requests.
So, what can one use this beavertail for Camelbak HAWG and TriZip for? Almost anything you can think of really. They are popular to stash items like jackets, bike helmets, wet towels, sandals, ropes and even the game you just shot with your bow. Basically, any items you need easy access to and any items you do not want to mess with the rest of the gear on the inside of the pack.
