Eberlestock’s V69 Destroyer and Warhammer Packs – 2012 SHOT Show

We just left the Eberlestock booth at the SHOT Show and a lot of attention was going to two packs, the Eberlestock V69 Destroyer and the Eberlestock Warhammer.

Here is a full breakdown of the two packs:

Eberlestock V69 Destroyer

eberlestock v69 destroyerWe hereby enter the world of “conventional” packs with some unconventional backpacks. Please understand, they’re only unconventional in the sense that they’re nicer, and more fully detailed than other packs in this class. It seems that most manufacturers have taken so many shortcuts in the trend toward minimalism that they have forgotten what it’s like to live out of a backpack. In the tradition of our focus on practical field use, we’ve built the 60 liter V69 Destroyer to be extremely capable and comfortable load bearing systems. With very similar features, the main difference between the two is one of scale. Choose the compact V69 if you need smaller capacity and prefer to go as light as possible.

Something else you’ll like about these packs: For their scale, they’re extremely light weight. We’ve carefully chosen new materials that give the optimum balance between high strength and light weight, and arranged them very cleverly, if we do say so ourselves. Every feature and detail has a purpose, and many of them have multiple purposes.

The V-type packs are double-deckers… with both top loading and front loading features, it’s easy to find your gear wherever in the pack you have it stowed. It also has the great benefit of a full array of compression and lash straps. Each surface of the pack can be compressed and each set of straps can be used to quickly grapple something to the pack. So you have a very simple and versatile, and ultimately practical backpack.

Includes a fitted rain cover that pulls out of a bottom pocket.

Eberlestock J51M Warhammer Packs


The J51 Warhammer is an offshoot of our popular J79 Skycrane II. It id s little shorter, but has more generous side/main butterfly compartments, so in effect the basic Warhammer has more stand-alone capacity than the main pack of the Skycrane II. The two products are very similar in function, and use many of the same components. Whereas the Skycrane II system includes the G1 and LP1 packs, these can be purchased separately when building a J51-based pack.

eberlestock j51 warhammer harnessThe Warhammer is built around the U.S. military’s beloved ALICE, a tried and true pack frame. Using the frame as a core structure, we’ve developed an entirely new style of pack that has amazing utility and versatility. It takes advantage of the ALICE’s compact size, and take-anything-you-can-throw-at-it toughness, and incorporates features and qualities that have made Eberlestock packs famous. Because the frame is fully wrapped in the structure of the pack, more along the lines of an internal frame than an external frame, we’ve eliminated frame noise, and built an exceptionally quiet riding, comfortable and well ventilated pack.

By itself, the J51 is a great stand-alone pack, with ample 3-day-class storage and two pockets sized for 100 oz/ 3-liter hydration bladders (sold separately). It doesn’t need any other components, depending on your personal preference. But you can do some great things by mixing and matching accessories and other bags to expand the system. In effect, you can build any pack you might conceivably need by pairing the J51 with some of our other products. To get a super-organized front-loading pack, you can zip a G1 Little Brother into the J51’s load bay. Or for simpler bulk storage, choose a J2SD or J3SD Spike Duffel… or a combination of any two of these; you can attach two duffels at the same time, or you can embed the G1 pack into the interior of the pack by zipping a duffel outboard of it. Then, you can attach the LP1 FannyTop Go-bag to the J51’s top panel. These practical options in a relatively lightweight and extremely efficient system make this a fun, versatile, and highly effective backpack.
