The front cover of the UK remastered edition of "Hunting High And Low" comes in a jewel case with a flip tray; it is similar to the front of the original 1985 release but with a lighter grey a-ha logo. Unlike the original releases, which come with a folded insert, these deluxe releases contain instead a 10-page, double sided, booklet with some history of the band, photos and lyrics for the original album. There is a red rectangular sticker with black and white printed text located on the front of the CD case, which reads: "REMASTERED & EXPANDED with rare & unreleased gems including original 7" version of "TAKE ON ME" and demo of b-side "DRIFTWOOD". The back cover is similar to the reverse of the inside insert, which was included with the original release, but with the track listing in place of the information about compact discs. The barcode number "0 8122 79795 3 9" located at the top right hand corner and Catalogue number 8122797953 on the spine is different. The production and copyright text displayed along the bottom of the back sleeve has also been changed to read; "This Reissue ℗ & © 2010 Rhino Entertainment Company, a Warner Music Group Company. All Rights Reserved. Manufactured & Marketed by Rhino Entertainment Company, 3400 W. Olive Ave., Burbank, CA 91505-4614. Unauthorized copying, hiring, lending, public performance, and broadcasting of this recording prohibited. Printed in E.U. LC02982 www.rhino.com".

The European digipak edition is similar to the UK jewel case edition with the same 10-page booklet and white coloured discs, but on the outside front cover, the a-ha logo is printed in dark grey on grey, rather than white on grey which appears on the booklet. The same red rectangular sticker with black and white text, which appears on the UK jewel case edition, is included at the bottom of the front cover. The track "The Sun Always Shines On T.V. (Extended Mix)" is the rare version by Alan Tarney, which was previously unreleased onto CD, not the mix by Steve Thompson. On the back sleeve, the same layout including full track listing, black and white photos of the three band members and production and copyright text is shown, but the digipak comes with a larger barcode displaying a different number "0 81227 97999 7" in the top right hand corner. The Catalogue number 8122797999 shown on the spine is again different compared to the one included on the original release and the remastered UK jewel case edition. The two-fold digipak opens out to reveal the two discs which sit in transparent trays through which "Take On Me" style black and white drawings can be seen through.

The regular U.S. deluxe edition of "Hunting High & Low" also came in a digipak. It is virtually the same as the European release displaying the same black and white photo of the band taken in a cafe (by Just Loomis) with the grey a-ha-logo and red title in the top left corner on the front sleeve, but without the additional red "REMASTERED & EXPANDED" rectangular sticker. On the back sleeve, the same barcode number "0 81227 97999 7" as the European release is shown in the top right-hand corner, but the regular production and copyright information included along the bottom of the sleeve, has been slightly amended to show that the album was printed in the USA; "This Reissue ℗ & © 2010 Rhino Entertainment Company, a Warner Music Group Company. All Rights Reserved. Manufactured & Marketed by Rhino Entertainment Company. 3400 W. Olive Ave., Burbank, CA 91505-4614. Printed in U.S.A. www.rhino.com.

There is also an additional "FBI ANTI-PIRACY WARNING DEPARTMENT OF FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION" copyright symbol, which has been added to the bottom right-hand corner. (This symbol is not included on the European release). The two-fold digipak opens out to again reveal the regular two discs which sit in transparent trays through which "Take On Me" style black and white drawings can be seen through. The reverse of the pocket, which houses the booklet, has a 'negative' style black and white shot of the band in front of a mirror. The regular black and white version of this shot is printed and included on the inside back cover of the digipak. The discs are the regular white with a grey "a-ha" logo and red "hunting high and low" title included along the top on each one, "Disc 1" or "Disc 2" is again printed in red below the centre ring. The regular silver "WB RECORDS" and "RHINO" logos are on display at the bottom on each. Around the outer rim at the bottom of each disc is the US manufacturing, production and FBI Anti-Piracy Warning copyright information which is similar to that shown on the back sleeve; it also includes the revised US Catalogue number; "r2 524675 This Reissue ℗ & © 2010 Rhino Entertainment Company, a Warner Music Group Company.

On the back sleeve, the same barcode number "0 81227 98000 9" as the European release is included, but the production and copyright information displayed along the bottom of the sleeve has been slightly amended to show that the album was printed in the USA; "This Reissue ℗ & © 2010 Rhino Entertainment Company, a Warner Music Group Company.
