I recently upgraded my daypack. I had been using an old Cabela's fleece pack for a long time and it is trashed, so I did a lot of research, and decided on a Stone Glacier Approach. The one thing I was surprised by where all of the best quality packs were concerned was the lack of any very quiet material used in the bags. I think the Stone Glacier material is not all that noisy, but most of my deer hunting is for whitetails in the timber where a lot of times a 20 yd shot is more likely than not. So I started to think about a fleece cover, and again I was surprised to see that there are almost none to be had! I found one that they wanted $90 for and was not impressed, so I just made one. I'm gonna give it a try tomorrow and see how it goes. It's pretty basic.

Awesome idea, I'm anxious to see how it works for you and I may experiment with making my own up.

Nice work. My wife did the same for me (I don't have any sewing skills). One in orange (like yours) and a camo one as well.

They work well. I've been thinking about adding a strap that goes around the pack - I've had brush pull it off even though it's a snug fit. I'll be interested to see how you like yours.

Yeah, I was thinking about just putting a couple of slits for the top of the frame stays to pull through, that would keep it in place if I need to. I could do the same on the bottom where there are a couple of compression straps. I want to see how this works first. I used one of those cord locks on the bungie cord around the edge and it holds pretty tight, we'll see.

A couple of slits or loops for the pack compression straps/buckles will keep it on. Those along with velcro are what keep the fleece panels on my Kifaru.
