Our Packout Trainer gets you ready to pack out your animal with something that weighs, moves, and feels like the real thing. Ditch the homemade gear and train for your next kill with precision and skill.
8 lbs. empty, up to 115 lbs with sand. Just under 1 cu.ft. capacity for dry material.
36 inches tall, 13.5 inches at its widest, and 8 inches thick.
Wear it with your hunting pack to train. Fill it with 30-50 lbs of lighter materials like rubber landscaping mulch for your weekly training, or with up to 115 lbs of sand if you’re ready for a heavier pack that simulates the real-life packout.
Made with heavy plastic for rugged durability during training.
Let’s face it – with homemade fixes, you get what you pay for. Throw rocks in your bag, and they’ll jab at your back and damage your pack. Put duct tape around a bag of sand, and they leak and make a mess. Our Packout Trainer is clean and comfortable where you need it.
A weighted backpack doesn’t prepare you for the real thing, and it usually costs more. Put money back in your pocket with the Packout Trainer.
Our Packout Trainer is proudly made in America with high-quality materials, so when you buy from us, you’re set for a life of backcountry hunts and packouts.
If you want to perform at your best when it’s time for the packout, the best way to train is by getting as close to the actual experience as possible. The Packout Trainer was carefully crafted to imitate a big game hind quarter so you can feel the heavy pack before you packout.
Here are answers to common questions. Have a different question? Reach out to us.
The Packout Trainer is designed with the backcountry hunt in mind. It’s made to be put in the backpack you’ll actually use, to simulate the shape of the big game you’ll actually kill, and to imitate the weight distribution you’ll actually feel when you’re carrying it out.
If you’re an experienced hunter, you know what it’s like finding homemade fixes. Rocks can jab at your back and ruin your pack, sandbags make a mess, and no homemade solution imitates the even weight distribution you’ll feel when you’re grinding to get the real-life big game in the back of your truck. The Packout Trainer simulates the real thing, and it’s built as a lifetime solution.
Depends on what you’re ready for. If you want to simulate the full weight of a packout, fill it to the top with up to 115lbs of sand. If you’re using it as your weekly workout or want to ease into training, you’ll probably want to fill it with 30-50 lbs of lighter materials so it’s not bottom-heavy, like rubber landscaping mulch, water softener salts, smoker wood pellets, lava landscaping rocks, or dog food.
