I am looking for a new pack for the up and coming elk season. I have been researching the badlands 2800 and the Blue Widow. I thought i had one picked but then i started hearing that the badlands pack is noisey and that the BW is not made for taller people and that the load straps wont adjust right. I am really confused with all the terms and options. All i want is a pack that packs all my gear(which isn't alot I am mostly a weekend warrior) and that holds my bow, and if i had to pack out my elk i could do so without having to make an extra trip to the truck to get a pack frame. Is there anybody that could help me out with this problem and maybe explain some of things i need to look for?
