Recently I found myself looking for a carry-platform for my new bullpup air rifle, an EdGun Lelya full power PCP. I searched through many bags, cases, and other options before I finally decided to go with a backpack. It was a great decision and I’d like to tell you about more about my final choice, an Eberlestock S25 Cherry Bomb.
But before I tell you how it carries, let’s start with a general overview of the pack. The Eberlestock S25 Cherry Bomb is a slim, fairly long (64cm) and quite low-volume pack. It holds just 15 liters, but I find this measurement to be very conservative. All of this is done for a purpose, which I’ll explore later. On the outside it looks like a very technical & outdoor-oriented backpack. There are no PALS outside, no tactical looking attachments, no tactical lettering, flags, insignia, etc. It’s one of those packs that doesn’t scream ‘look at me, I’m sooo tactical!’ from well over 100 yards away. However, there is still something in the design that makes it slightly ‘tactically flavored’, but in a discreet way.
The S25 is made of thick, laminated Cordura and lightweight inserts along with virtually indestructible hypalon attachment loops. The stitching, zippers, and details are all top-level and absolutely on par with Kifaru, TAD, and Mystery Ranch to name a few. Everything is just top-notch – no doubt about it! You can tell from the construction that no corners were cut to save cost. I’d say it’s almost overbuilt, but because it’s a weapons pack I’d rather have it that way. The pack oozes quality and definitely says to me that it will offer a lifetime of service.
