    You can't go wrong with the Eberlestock packs, built tough and you'll love how they feel.

    I just received a Badlands 2200 from Camofire. I have not used it, but it seems to be a well made pack. However, the pocket arrangement and layout are non-functional for me. Thinking about dumping this one and going with Tenzing or Crooked Horn.

    I went to sportsmans today and checked em all out! The badlands pack does not fit my torso lengnth nor my waist. So thats out of the question im still split between the two eberlestocks!!

    Check out the Just One, Dragonfly, or Blue Widow. They are outstanding versatile packs that will do everything from short day hunts to packing out elk. They offer various waist-belts, but make sure you have enough torso lift before making the purchase. I feel 19 inches is about the max torso size for there packs. I think more weight will begin being shifted to the wearers shoulders as the torso extends beyond 19 inches, that is just my opinion from using the Dragonfly and Just One. Also, I feel the Eberlestock packs are more durable than Badlands and Blacks Creek packs, but not more than Mystery Ranch. Mystery Ranch is the King of durability with the NICE Frame line of packs.

    As I've posted before I really like my J34. I don't think you would go wrong with it, especially if you plan to use the scabbard.

    I have a J34 and an X2. The J34 is great for heavy loads and I'm a big fan of the scabbard. The X2 is really nice for going light on day hunts.

    I am am using a Badlands pack now. I agree they aren't the most comfortable pack but they aren't horrible either. I will say they are tough as nails and the lifetime warranty is unbeatable. I am sending mine back tomorrow because I overloaded it this weekend packing my bull out and broke a few clips and bent the frame. They are going to repair it or replace it free of charge. Now that is customer service!

    i've had a BL2200 for 4 seasons now. i've hauled elk quarters with it and deer. it's a tough pack. i just ordered a BL2800. i always felt like i needed just a little bit more space. it always felt like everything was crammed into the 2200.
