Bags – Bandolero® Hawking Bag



SKU: 1200-1205 Category: Tags: ,


In 2020 we incorporated a number of subtle improvements to the BANDOLERO® Hawking Bag based on extensive field use and customer feedback.  Our design criteria for the BANDOLERO® Hawking Bag are the same as for the AVATAR Hawking Vest. Like the AVATAR, the BANDOLERO is built from 1000 denier USA-made duPont Cordura nylon and military specification fittings and closures. We offer the BANDOLERO® Hawking Bag in Coyote Tan, Loden, and Black.

BANDOLERO® Hawking Bag comes in both Standard and Compact sizes.

  • For those of smaller stature including petite women, young folks, and falconers not requiring the volume afforded by the Standard size, The Compact BANDOLERO® Hawking Bag is about 20% smaller, yet has all the same compartments and features of the standard size.
  • The fully adjustable shoulder strap on the Compact size is the same length as used in the standard size.
  • The Standard BANDOLERO® Hawking Bag will easily accommodate a couple of jackrabbits or mallards. In fact, the Compact size will easily hold a jack, mallard or pheasant with room to spare.


  • Easy one-handed access to all compartments;
  • Big main compartment with genuine YKK brand nylon self-repairing zipper closure, mesh panels to keep training birds well ventilated and cool;
  • Roomy front compartment with new zippered pocket in flap;
  • Four compartments total, with provision for an optional fifth modular flat pocket or meat pouch;
  • Totally bilateral, BANDOLERO® drapes naturally over either shoulder and fits
    closely, with an adjustable, quick-snap elastic waist belt (A waist belt extender is available). Running and passing through wire fences is as easy as with the AVATAR® vest;
  • BANDOLERO® accepts the Hood Holster just where you want it, and has two handy “D” rings for looping jesses, hawk and dog leashes, etc.;
  • The integral shoulder strap has a no-slip pad and is adjustable for all
    sizes of game hawkers;
  • Proudly made in the USA.
