Used this pack on a whitetail hunt in the famed Buffalo County, Wisconsin. It served every purpose , carried all my accessories and was able to strap an extra jacket on the bottom of the pack. Very comfortable to climb into the stand with and very comfortable to use with a climbing stand. Just have to put your water bottles in with your lunch. Great adjustability for fit with light or heavy clothing. Work the zippers before you use it to loosen them up and quiet them down, Excellent product...... Been bow hunting for 46 years now , guess you could say I know a good product for my passion...... May your arrows fly true and hit between the 2nd and 3rd ribs
Cervical surgery now prevents me from tolerating straps on my shoulders and neck. I hate depending on written reviews but I watched a close-up video on youtube where the guy did a show-and-tell about the features. I was sold. The zippered storage pockets are far bigger than I imagined. I like the variety of sizes that take everything from my folded knife and keys to my lunch to my water bottles - and more. I knew during my first trip into the woods that I’d made a great choice because: 1. Unlike the reputable day pack the carried my gear in a vertical pile (1700 cu in) and causing aches and pains, I carried even more gear in this monster pack, and it was horizontally distributed around my sides and middle back. 2. With the distribution of weight and comfortable shoulder straps and waist belt, I hardly realized that I was carrying anything. The foam back pad makes it even more comfortable. 3. When I had to bend and stoop to get under low branches my day pack would always snag on the limbs. With the monster pack, I never got hung up once. 4. Lastly, when I stopped for breaks it was so much easier to get off and get to my gear. Love this thing!
Monster pack is tough, a single large compartment, several smalls, shoulder harness is comfortable, great for day trip when you don't need entire backpack full of gear.
Great Pack! perfect for long hauls during Elk season. Pack doesnt get in the way at all. Also Badlands gives that Lifetime warranty! No matter what happens, where you bought it or how. You dont even need a receipt. If you have a badlands bag they will fix or replace anything on it. That alone as a hunter is worth every penny! Defenitly recommend Badlands anything!
Right size to set out camera and carry the little extras
