Default Backpack for broken-down AR-15

I'm looking for a backpack with internal straps to hold a broken-down AR-15 (separated into lower and upper). I'd like to use it as a basis for a 24 hour BOB, so it should have reasonable room for other stuff. Does anybody have recommendations for something like that?

Check out Eberlestock. You don't have to break it down but can if you want. I have the Gunslinger. It's an excellent pack.

Camelback BFM backpack should fit your needs... My Kel-Tec fits pretty nice but have yet to check my AR.

Btw this pack comes with 100 oz bladder unit as well.

I think I had in mind something a little smaller - like this:

Calguns member Pullnshoot had a pack for sale a while back that might just fit your needs.

I don't think that backpack you're talking of in the vid has much room at all for to be used as a B.O.B. You would need to look for something else that's bigger and has room. What you're asking for is like saying: How can you fit 10 people into a honda civic and still have room for xtra gear and guns.? I would highly reccommend an Eberlestock Gunslinger pack for a BOB+rifle setup.

hmmm. That Eberlestock looks neat. I have a Kifaru Marauder already, though. I think I could probably mount one of Eberlestocks long arm sheaths onto the Kifaru. I know Kifaru has a mount system that holds a long arm on the front strap with a quick release mechanism so you can hike with both hands free and still have ready access to your rifle.

I have the Eberlestock Phantom.. the cool thing about the pack is that if you "tuck in" the bottom portion of the scabbard, for all intents and purposes the weapon(s) inside the scabbard is/are totally concealed. Toss a butt pack or tent on the top of the pack and no one would know there's a gun in there.

Eberlestocks Terminator pack has "trap door" on the back of the main lid of the pack that opens. You can insert the scabbard or simply carry a weapon resting on the bottom of the pack.

Just maybe. To be honest, space will be a little tight but it was designed to hold a subgun and could be used for a broken down rifle.

My dreams of a Mossberg Cruiser/Saiga Cruiser for the ultimate UCC gun may be thwarted by this backpack though. If only it were a bit bigger....

Saw that at Crossroads a couple of weeks back. Looked very cool up to the point of the $3500 price tag. Yikes.
