The Upland Drifter is geared towards those uplanders who always feel drawn to the next ridge, slough, or thicket. We took our Deviate Upland Strap vest and paired it with deep velcro pockets to consume the essentials (ammo, cell phone, snacks, gloves, etc) and a couple XL water bottle holsters for serious hydration capacity. Given the permanent onboard storage capacity and the ability to further expand, the Drifter configuration is a solid foundation for any adventure when you want to park the truck and get lost in the uplands.
