I wish some of these backpack manufacturers made one truly build for hiking. They need to be slightly wider with a proper hip belt and an accessible compartment that holds a holster securely. I have looked and looked with little luck. The search goes on and for now, I'll try to use a Safepacker off the backpack's hip belt.
I use a Kifaru Spike Camp as my hiker with a smaller Kifaru belt pouch as my holster. (when I want to stay concealed)....when bow hunting I put a holster directly on the belt for bear defense. I like the easy zipper access a belt pouch has to offer. Kifaru also offers one that opens with velcro for faster access on a chest pack. Haven't tried that one yet. They're expensive but with a lifetime warranty it's the last pack you'll buy. Mine has hunted/hiked for 10 years and doesn't have a tear on it. I tried the Kifaru Tactical packs but they were too heavy for my needs. If I were going to war that's what I'd choose though.
I have the MONSOON gear slinger that I've only used a couple times.
The special pocket in the back for a gun is a pretty cool feauture.
