Going The Distance: The DECKED Drawer System And The D-Bag Hunting Backpack
Nobody likes a job half done. When your truck pulls onto a jobsite you’re there to get the job done to the fullest. It should be no different when you roll out for play, either. When you head out on a hunt, you don’t plan on coming home empty-handed. Going out into the rut during elk season or heading out into the sticks for a deer hunt, the path to success can be treacherous. Even when the road runs out, and then the off-road terrain becomes too rough, that’s just the beginning and you’ll be heading deeper into the wild on foot. The DECKED Drawer System and the versatile D-Bag hunting backpack are going to take you further than you’ve been before.
The DECKED Drawer System will take you from the workweek straight into a hunting trip seamlessly and put you and your gear in the prime spot for a successful hunt. When the path runs out and your truck can go no further, the DECKED D-Bag may just be the best hunting backpack to get your gear the extra mile — or ten. Don’t get stopped in your tracks and don’t leave essential items from your backpack hunting gear list behind. Whether it’s in the back of your truck or strapped to your back, you’ll be ready, and so will your gear.
The DECKED Drawer System: Work Smarter So You Can Play Harder
Getting back from a hunting trip and having to unload your truck bed completely so that you’re ready for work the next morning is a drag. Whether you’re unloading your deer hunting backpack or your turkey hunting backpack the DECKED Drawer System is going to make this a lot quicker and a lot easier.
The DECKED Drawer System is a modular tool storage system that is custom molded to fit most midsize and full-size pickup truck beds and cargo vans. The Drawer System wraps around the wheel wells and is fastened down with J-Hooks so that it’s fully integrated and secure with no wasted space in the bed. There’s even nifty ammo cans (not that kind of ammo, since we’re talking hunting) that fit nicely into the corners for some extra storage. There’s no need to worry about losing space in the bed for hauling because the system has a 2000lb payload. If you’re hauling a pallet of cinder blocks or an 800lb elk your gear will be safe and sound below. The Drawer System is made of a combination of anti-corrosion treated steel and High Density Polyethylene so it’s tough on wear. It’s also weatherproof so no matter where your truck goes – rain, hail, sleet, snow – your gear is coming for the ride and staying dry. Whatever corners of the wild you stalk your prey in, the elements can’t shut you down.
Inside the system are two storage drawers that roll out on urethane sealed bearing wheels, not sliders, so there won’t be any bending, warping or snags happening. Each drawer has a detent so that they won’t open or close unexpectedly when your truck is stopped on an incline. The drawers smoothly open towards the tail gate so that you can access their contents without struggling, stretching, or climbing into the truck bed. Save your back for the task at hand and get your gear easily with both feet planted firmly on the ground. Each drawer has a capacity of 200lbs so you can bring all the gear you need without being too choosy.
So, you might be wondering “Sounds like a great way to store my tools, but how is it going to help me on a hunt?” Valid question, but the DECKED Drawer System is not only excellent for storing and organizing tools. Once you start swapping a case of power tools for a tactical hunting backpack, you’ll start to see how the Drawer System’s modularity unlocks the maximum potential for your truck bed.

Drawerganizer: The Drawerganizer is a unique open top storage tub that sits in the head of the drawer. It’s designed to wrap around the interior of the drawer handle so as to not waste any precious stowage space. During the week while this unit might house some duct tape or measuring tape, on the hunt this is a great place to throw bug spray and other odds and ends to keep them easily accessible right where you can grab them. Grab what you need for your hunting backpack and hit the trail with no time wasted. There’s also a Double Drawerganizer available for twice the storage.
Crossbox and D-Box: The Crossbox and it’s big brother the D-Box are your go-to storage cases. Their heavy-duty construction, made from high impact resin, and EPDM gasket seal to keep out water make these boxes great for storing tools of the trade and tools of the hunt alike. Removable inserts for organizing can be used for smaller components like finger protection for bow hunting or bulkier armguards and quivers. When the truck can go no further, snap open these boxes, pack out whatever you need into your bow hunting backpack, and start stalking.
Piecekeepers: The components mentioned above are versatile enough to have your back at the jobsite and on a hunting trip, but now we’re looking at a component that was designed with hunters in mind: the DECKED Piecekeepers. As you might have guessed by their apt name, the Piecekeepers are a storage rack for your firearms. The Piecekeepers feature two foam covered, resin molded racks that can carry your shotguns and rifles securely in the Drawer System. This is full integration and modularity. You won’t need to be installing a gun rack in your truck and then have it be in your way at work on Monday. These components are inserted and removed from the drawers with the same ease as the other DECKED Accessories. The Drawer System will keep your firearms safe from harsh weather conditions, but also safe from thieves. Nobody wants to irresponsibly transport weapons without proper consideration for safety. The drawers can have locks added that will keep unwanted hands off of your firearms. It’s efficient and it’s safe so you can focus on the hunt and not worry about what’s going on back at your truck.
