Choosing the Perfect Hunting Pack With Zach Scheidegger and Joe Schroeder of ALPS Outdoorz

March 15, 2023 By: NDA Staff

In this episode of the Coffee and Deer podcast, we’re talking hunting packs and what to look for when buying a pack to match your hunting needs. Nick and The Doctor talk with Zach Scheidegger and Joe Schroeder of ALPS OutdoorZ, both experienced hunters and pack experts.

They cover everything from various types of packs to how to know how much weight is safe to carry. The guys also review some of Alps OutdoorZ’s top products while previewing new offerings that will be available later in the year.

In this episode’s B-Team Report, one of our hosts ends up with a deep cut to a finger while the other sent Board members to the wrong virtual meeting room thanks to a little help from Microsoft. The next episode will have an Ask NDA Anything segment, so if you have questions or want to share your own B-Team story, you can send them to
