    You could try calling Eberlestock and see if they have anymore "smoke damaged" packs. I bought a blue widow last fall for $150 and it wasn't damaged at all. It smelled like smoke, but I washed it and let it hang outside and it was fine.

    I've read alot about its meat packing ability, but how does it hold bulkier stuff like tent, bag and pad? Does it become to wide or far off your back? I like the design, but unlike the 4500 or Barbarian Featherlight, the BW expands horizontally instead of vertically. And, are the load lifters high enough? I'd like to go to just one pack, but not sure how the BW will function as a backpacking/camping pack. Thoughts?

    I used a BW two years ago and my only complaint was that when fully loaded, the weight was too low and far back for my tastes. This may not be a problem for others. Otherwise it is a very solid, versatile pack.

    I have a blacks creek canadian, and it is a nice pack. I really like how you can expand the meat compartment to pack quarters out. It is not as comfy as my badlands though, so I only use it when someone needs a pack to help me pack meat.
