I really need a 2nd backpack/packframe for our upcoming elk hunt, DIY archery.

part of me is thinking about buying a cheapo $100 style pack...

I have an external pack frame with bag etc... that somehow I got the steal of a lifetime on, I think it was $50, very similar to cabelas alaskan backpack/pack frame for $150... should have bought 2 at the time... but at the time I didn't even need 1... haha, let alone 2.

If I were to buy a nice one I think I'd get "the one" from eberlestock, but those are 300 bucks I think?

trying to get some advice...

of course everything is already starting to add up...

also what do you think of an internal frame vs. external? both can pack out elk quarters?

also what do you think of just a pack frame without a backpack/pack/bag attached to it...

Thanks in advance guys!
