We carried our game bags in our backpacks every day, some days we hunted many miles from camp, so being able to stay light and reduce space was a big deal! They cleaned up fantastic as well, just threw them in the wash and they were as good as new! Your game bags turned out to be the best all around game bag that I have ever used, I will never use another game bag. Great Job! Tommy and Danny from; Rocky Mountain Specialty Gear

The new bags worked great!! I was able to harvest a nice bull elk this year in Colorado (2009) I quartered and hung the meat in your bags for ten days. The meat stayed clean and dry. The bags breathed and the meat aged prefect, the size and number of each bag was just right. For years I used heavier canvas type bags but no more! yours clean-up so nice and the weight advantage is so important I cannot ever begin to tell you! Anyway I am off to Nebraska for white tail deer cannot wait to try the deer bags from your company.
Last hour of the last day of the season! I couldn't be happier with the lightweight game bags, with miles worth of hiking out of the high country, with two full loads and with the last load coming out well after sun set, the bags were easy to find with the aid of our surefire flash lights we could see the game bags from over two hundred yards away! I was very confident in the strength and durability, I highly recommend the game bags. Steve L.

Caribou Gear’s Ultralight Re-Usable game bags is one the most vital things I carry in my pack. I have been so impressed with the quality of the product over the last several years.
Disposable game bags never worked for me. I like quality in my gear! I also hate to waist anything.
The reusable feature of these big game bags is so important to me. I never leave the truck without a set of game bags in my pack. From Moose to Deer I know that Caribou Gear has me covered!

[Father and Son Rick and Derek McNeil] The bags are outstanding! surprisingly durable, considering the fact that they weigh next to nothing. I have washed the ones that I have at least 8 or 9 times, and they still look & perform like new. The one problem I have is getting all of them back if I let friends borrow them for a hunt. Even my dad, who’s an old school hunter is sold on the technology of your bags. Truly a great product. Thanks. Derek Mcneil
After bagging and quartering my elk I headed back to camp to hang game bags on the meat pole, just as we finished I tried to pull the ATV out from under the meat pole, the rope holding the pole up in the tree broke and all the quarters hit the ground and ATV. After pulling the ATV away I was surprised to find none of the bags had torn. I have known of the Caribou Gear game bags for years and have been hesitant in making a change but after using the Caribou Gear game bags I can say I'm truly convinced after seeing the performance durability but most importantly the game bags breathability, these bags are well made, and well worth the investment in my game meat care, I will be using them over and over again.
we love our Caribou game bags. These bags are super light weight and sturdy.
We’ve used them three times in the year that we’ve had them for California Blacktail,
New Mexico Mule deer and Utah Mountain goat. Our bags have washed up so easily
and are still looking like they are new
I have become a big fan of your game bags. The medium sized game bags performed flawlessly. They cooled and protected my elk meat far better than my old canvas bags. In fact they went over so well that I have order a Carnivore II bag set as a gift for a friend who helped with my hunt. Attached is a picture of the Elk I mentioned. Elk Green Scored 391 2/8th. I can tell how passionate you are about your product and how important good customer service it to you. You will have a customer for life.
Myself and 6 other elk hunting buddies ordered your bags last fall. Thanks for getting them to us in time. We were lucky enough to harvest 4 elk on our 2 week self-guided elk hunt in Montana.
YOUR BAGS ARE UNBELIEVABLE!! When we got an elk back to our base camp using your light weight game bags, we transferred the meat into our old heavy canvas bags to hang in camp. Just for the heck of it I put the bloody light weight bags in a small creek behind our tents to see if they would clean up before putting them back in my day pack for the next day’s hunt. I couldn’t believe how great they cleaned up. After just a couple hours just sitting in a very small mountain stream they were almost like new and most of the blood washed right off. VERY IMPERESSIVE!! All 7 of us are 53-55 years old now and anything we can do to lighten our day packs really helps. Great job. I really liked the story of how the company started. I own a floor covering store in Minnesota and do a lot of new construction. We were really hit hard during the slowdown and barely hung on. Thankfully things are really picking up. Your story really hit home with me and I’m very happy for you. A lot of other hunters will also relate to your story because so many come from the construction industry. I can't wait to fill them again this fall. Congrats on a great product!
We just returned from our Central Alaska Range Caribou Hunt, where Mrs. Ruth was able to successfully take her 1st Caribou. I wanted to send you a quick update on our use and experience with your Caribou Gear Bags. I found that your bags have everything I look for in a game bag for a remote wilderness hunt. Weight, strength and breathability. We used the medium pack for our Caribou and we found the pack to contained the perfect amount of bags for the game we were seeking. The little tonight's dinner bag was a unexpected bonus! :-) I found that these bags breathe as good and as any bag and these bags are a significant improvement over any synthetic bag I have previously used. Once we got our meat and bags home, I was really pleased with how well these bags clean up. A couple of hot water rinse's and a bit of mild dish soap and these bags cleaned up like they were brand new. I look forward to refilling these bags many times over in the future and I want to thank you for making a great product.
The Game Bags are more than just game bags. You guys have really put some thought into it and have included some great ideas and great details. I use a ton of bags each year. Taking at least 10 caribou, a moose, sheep, 2-3 bears and musk ox here in AK each year. The cheap bags are a waste of money, and even the better ones can't handle more than one trip. I'm always looking for the best gear that helps me as a hunter.

Here is a picture from last year using the bags in Alaska. I'll need another set as I left them up there w/ Barry Whitehill my guide...he loved the bags.
The game bags are the best!!
My 16 year old daughter and I did a do-it-yourself caribou hunt in Alaska. She took a great bull early in the hunt, and our Caribou Game Bags kept the meat perfectly. We really enjoyed the reflective tabs so we could check on the meat from 200 yards away with our flashlights. A grizzly was near by for the last three days, but it never bothered our meat. Thanks for a great product. Mark & Bailey
I consider them Gear!
Excellent game bags! I like the smallest size, The Carnivore for sheep. they are strong, light, and reusable. first time I've actually had a relationship with my game bags...I consider them Gear! I've used them for other Alaska game, with excellent results. Good job guys! Thomas Ferguson, Wasilla Alaska. Product used: The Carnivore
I wasn't going to take any chances! This was my second archery sheep tag, and it took me 14 years to finally put one on the ground. I wasn't going to take any chances on ruining the meat, so the Caribou Gear bags were a natural choice. When quartering any game out, it's so convenient to just slip the bags right over the quarter before it has a chance to touch the ground. Drop it in your pack, and away you go! My Caribou Gear Game Bags are already washed, and stowed in my pack for the next harvest. Kurt Geist, Bill Pellegrino's Archery Hut

"Alaska" YOUR PRODUCT WAS SUPERIOR OF THE TWO!
[Jimmer Stickler of Haines Alaska - Jimmer was sad, becouse the Game Bag Pack wasn't his!]
Alaska Yukon Moose Hunt Jimmer, and Dave Stickler from Haines, AK. Along with Patrick Anderson from Merced, Ca. The guys that I hunted with have been using canvas game bags for years and were extremely impressed with your product, The only Caribou bags that we had are the ones that I bought, ( enough for one moose ) we used the canvas bags for the other two moose, it worked out because we were able to compare the two different types of game bags and all of us recognized that your product was superior of the two. One thing that we noticed was the meat we put in your bags ( skinned over ) a whole lot faster than the canvas bags. Thanks for the great product and I will be doing business with you in the future.

The Alaskan bush requires the very best in gear…when it comes to meat care we use no other product, because there's no other that can compare to the quality & features of Caribou Gear Game Bag.

I have been using game bags all of my adult life and I’ve tried every brand Imaginable. As former hunting editor of Outdoor life magazine, I’ve tested everything out there. The Caribou Gear game bags are the best I’ve seen with no close second. I recommend them for everything from antelope to moose.
"Big" bucks and bulls are hard to come by. I put as much thought and effort into the meat care as I do the hunt Itself. The transport from field to freezer is critical & I always make sure I have a good solid plan ahead of time. This means good, high quality game bags. I use the Caribou Gear game bags for all of my hunts. The high quality, light weight fabric is perfect for bringing home the bacon in good shape, and they're reusable to boot. The bags have lock loops, reflective tags and are the easiest bags to use on the market. Put a set in the bottom of your pack and hunt on!
Whether we’re hunting deep in the backcountry or closer to home, quality game bags are a vital part of our hunt. There are a lot of quality game
bags available, but only Caribou Gear Game Bags have met our expectations on all levels. Extra weight and bulk are not characteristics hat can be found in the gear we carry in our packs, the ‘Wapiti’ and Carnivore’ Game bag sets are no Exception. We’re able to hunt hard and know that when we’re successful, the meat we carry out on our backs is going to be protected without compromise,"

Your Big Game Bags Rock! They are the Best!

Over the years I have used everything from cheese cloth to plastic mesh for holding caribou, elk and deer in the back country. The new Big Game Bag’s by Caribou Gear are by far the best I have ever used. I have hunted around the world for many different species of game and had used many different game bags, but never have I used a game bag quit like the Caribou Gear Brand, tough, durable and easy to clean. The best game bag made.
I thought along with my photo, I'd share a little info with you. Professionally, I am a doctor of medicine and am a nationally ranked masters level powerlifter winning my age and weight class at the USA Powerlifting National Championships. I recognize the health benefits of lean free range meat rich in protein and omega 3 fatty acids. It is truly a heart smart option. I have hunted extensively throughout the western US and Alaska. I have animals listed in Boone and Crockett, Pope and Young and Safari Club record books, but meat remains at the center of why I hunt. In many years I will harvest up to 7 animals: a bull and cow elk, muledeer and antelope and as many doe antelope as tags are available. 100 % of that meat is eaten by our family, accordingly we treat our meat with the utmost care. Your game bags have become an important part of that process. Ronald Le Beaumont, M.D.

Arizona Coues Deer: The Bags in this photo were used up to 7 times this year and over 12 since New! A truly unique product that has stood the test of time, where there was once in doubt there is no more!
I cannot believe how easy they are to clean and they look brand new with no effort. Everybody that has seen me use these bags have been very impressed. Thanks for your great product. The thing I like best is how lightweight these are, like anything else it’s no good if you don’t have it with you. Jim Leonard.

"I wanted to thank you for making the best game bags on the market" On a quick solo morning hunt I spotted this buck with some doe's on a ridge I worked my way in on him for a clean shot. This buck is a 3x3, 31-1/2 wide, 20" G2's, with 18 " of mass and 26" tall from base of skull.
Here is a photo of my elk quartered/boned out and in Caribou Gear's Big Game Bags. I carried Caribou Gear's Big Game Bags for all 17 days of my Colorado DIY archery elk hunt. Carrying heavy canvas bags would have weighed me down, and taken up every inch of space in my day pack. I ended up using all 8 bags of my Medium Pack set, which allowed me to put specific cuts of meat (i.e. neck, roast) into their own bags. Even though the bags were completely blood soaked, they cleaned up easily in one washing. Why anyone would purchase any other bag is beyond me! B Sol.
I just completed a very demanding and successful fall season guiding desert sheep hunters in some of the most difficult terrain in southern Utah. Believe me, your Carnivore Game Bags and Survivor Bone Saw were tested "under fire" in the toughest field conditions. I absolutely loved the Carnivore Bags. They were the perfect fit for deboning a big desert ram, kept the meat clean and were also used to get shoulder and full body capes back to civilization without any problems. Caribou Gear's Survivor Bone Saw was light to pack and efficiently cut through the skull plates of some very big rams. Great gear. I would recommend these quality products to anyone who is going to spend some serious time "out on the mountain" chasing trophy animals. Randy Johnson HIGH DESERT WILD SHEEP GUIDES
I didn't even know that a product like this existed I had always used heavy cotton or Alaska game bags but when I saw yours I said Wow! I have to get some of those. Keep up the good work!
Easy to wash best of all they’re reusable and easy to see in the darkest nights. No other can make this claim. I’ve used every game bag made from cotton to nylon and none come close for quality, and use. There’s no going back to anything else for me. ‘Simply nothing better’
Producer of Eastmans' TV, Hunting & Bowhunting Journal
Your bags are awesome! No doubt the best I’ve ever seen or used a great product and brand. It will surely resonate well with our hard core big game audience. We will carry the torch high and proud in promoting Caribou Gear to our national audience.

We have never had any bags that worked so easy in the field and the ultimate test was how simple the blood washed out of your Material , this is such a major plus on wilderness or remote hunting situations. Moose bag pack was EXCELLENT!
They were tough and never tore open, all in all your moose package
did exactly what you told us it would and in today’s world of hype and not much substance….it’s awesome to find things that work.
Congrats and yes your bags and kits are exactly what hunters need to keep their game perfect in the field.
From a man that eats sleeps hunting, and promoting the very best that's great about the great outdoors Michael Waddell.
I just downright likes the game bags.

This is my second year using your game bags and still loving them. I am using the new saw as well, awesome!
Roger & Jennie Boyce
"Roger" I'm so glad that we came across the game bags because I plan on bear hunting the boundary waters wilderness area where we only have access by canoe or on foot and due to the warmer weather during the hunting season the bags would be good in this remote location, we are always concerned with not only bear, the bold wolves in the area, but weight and strength is of a great concern, a quality game bag is definitly required, your game bags will suit such a hunt.

"Once again your game bags have worked flawlessly. Being a solo backcountry elk hunter it is a must for me to have the very best gear, and your bags are definitely the very best"

The game bags and game bag spray worked for me during my 17 day adventure in the Yukon. I killed this bull and it was a week later before I got back home to Montana. The meat was in perfect condition!
Thanks again for making a great product!

We have used plenty of other game bags, but nothing compares to Caribou Gear Game Bags! Whether it is a soggy wet Alaska hunt or High mountainous muledeer hunt, the bags are built tough, with "Extreme Quality" in mind.
I am very impressed by the quality of the bags. I was sure that the blood stains were going to be permanent but one time in the washer and they were clean! Awesome!
Here is a photo of your bags at work on my archery elk hunt this year. They Are Great! Clint Crookshanks - Castle Rock RMEF
Your bags are the best I've ever used. I used to use the canvas and Alaska game bags, but the washing was hard, they retained odors, and the cheesecloth bags tore like a wet paper sack. Your bags are tough enough to hang moose quarters and the bloodstains come out very easy in the wash. I'll never use cotton game bags every again. Your bags also breath so well, I use them as laundry bags to put my wet packs and other gear in the dryer!
I have used my fair share of other bags. I have used the bags for the last 3 years and they wash up like new every time. They are amazing and one tuff
quality product.” Dennis Howell
The Bags worked great! While it wasn't a big buck, it was a fun hunt! The meat is in the freezer! I was able to draw an early mule deer tag this year. With temperatures in the eighties and the flies in full force, I was able to hunt with confidence knowing I had my Caribou Gear deer kit in my pack. I had my entire deer safely enclosed in my Ultra Light Big Game Bags before the flies even knew what happened! I like to tie two bags together and throw two over my shoulder for each trip. This way a mulie only takes two trips to pack out-without even carrying a pack frame all day! Time was on my side during this warm weather hunt. Thanks Caribou Gear! Keith Douglas
HOW COULD THEY ALL POSSIBLY BE WRONG
After 11 days of hunting the backcountry I finally cut a tag on the buck I had been hunting since the season opener. I gross scored him at 177". The Carnivore pack is amazing!! Lightweight and the most packable game bag set I have ever used. I fit an entire deer boned out in one bag plus an additional bag for the head and cape. Almost 100 lbs worth of meat in one bag. All you need to do is use a Big Game Bag once and you'll never go back to using another bag again. Nothings getting to your meat. The bags are PERFECT!!!! I washed them w/o bleach and they look perfect and have no odor to them. They look as clean as when they came out of the carnivore pack. Evan Williams Humphries Archery
