    which pack

    looking at getting a new multiday pack. I'm looking a either a hornhunter or one of the eberlestock packs. I think the hornhunter might have more range of uses. I'm a medium built guy was wondering which one might fit me better.

    One of my friends has an eberlestock pack and he loves it except he said it does make a lot of noise. I have a Badlands SuperDay pack and I love it. It has so many different adjustments on it that you can fit it to you very easily.

    I have the J34 and it fits great and carries a load well. You can put a ton of stuff in it.

    Either pack companies are going to be great but try to get one with a adjustable torso so you can custom fit it to you. I liked my dragon fly from eberlestock when I still had it.

    I have a X1 but am looking at the horn hunter and it looks like a very good pack.

    I've done a little over 25 miles with my dragonfly so far this year and love it. I just wish I could find something to fill it up.

    I love my Blue Widow. It is a very quiet pack.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the fabric in my Just One (I have the J104, but the J34 is made of the same stuff) has been very quiet. It is advertised as waterproof fabric, but it is more like water resistant. The lightweight rain cover is nice when the heavy rain rolls in.

    Exactly, the X2 squeaks but I haven't had any issues with my J107. I did also find out that in a good rain the pack becomes a sponge. I now carry a rain cover at all times.
