J107 Dragonfly Hunting Pack
This member of the Just
One family is at the leading edge of backpack design. With all of the
features of our other Just Ones, the Dragonfly raises the bar, featuring a
high tech suspension system, a huge range of adjustability, and more
patented and proprietary features than any hunting pack made. A slate of premium features
includes a full framesheet, which augments the internal aluminum stays to give a very
stable load bearing platform, and a fully adjustable shoulder harness
and beefy #10 zippers. If you're
thinking about a Just One pack, and feel that you'd be most comfortable
with a firmer platform for carrying a heavy load, or if the vertically
adjustable shoulder yoke assembly appeals to you, choose a J107.
*To achieve the full capacity of a Just One type
attach a Spike Camp Duffel externally.
Spike Camp Duffels are sold separately.
The J107 has a look and a feel that demonstrates
the level of detail that has gone into producing this product.
Some things you encounter in life are just "right." We
hope you'll feel this is one of
The removable top compartment has a pull-out waist belt, giving you the
option of hunting with a generously sized, hydration compatible fanny
pack. This feature also allows you to minimize the size of the
The frame on the Dragonfly is simple, sophisticated,
and extremely comfortable. The main pad section rides directly on
the contourable stays, and is adjustable to exactly fit the torso length
of the wearer. The pads have just the right amount of body
contact, and an air space between these and the framesheet allows a great
deal of ventilation, giving the pack the best advantages of both
internal and external frame packs.

A note about the
compression straps and side loops on the Just One - type packs:
straps on our packs are big and beefy for good reason. We've seen
grizzly skins and full body elk capes, and varied loads weighing as much
as 177 lbs. attached to the exterior our packs using only these straps.
So they serve good purpose. But their primary purpose, which is
sometimes overlooked, is to compress the contents of the pack, so as to
stabilize, compact, and quiet the load. Think of it like tying
your shoes. If you don't snug them up, the results won't be as
good as if you do.
Secondly, as the packs have
evolved, we've added small webbing loops to the main panel of the pack,
at the forward side of the scabbard layer, as shown in the photo at
left. These allow you to compress the scabbard layer if you choose
to do so. However, if your particular rig works better with the
scabbard layer un-compressed (for example, to allow your rifle to slide
in and out more easily), then just bypass the loops, and go directly
around the pack.
The straps are long enough to go around a full Super
Spike Duffel that's mounted to the outside of your pack. If you
find that you don't have enough length with the compression straps
routed through the webbing loops, then again you will want to bypass the
loops, and go directly around the pack, as shown at lower right.
The above two photos are a great
display of the way that a Just One can have two very different natures.
At left, you have a close-fitting, behind-the-torso hunting pack.
At right, an 8000 cubic inch freighter; the same type of pack, just with
a Super Spike Duffel aboard.
Combine the J107 with our ButtBucket and Ripcord
Bowtether kit as shown here, and you've got a great bowhunter's pack!
