    I have a Mystery Ranch Crew cab and a MR longbow. Love them both, but are you honestly saying that the Mystery Ranch is quieter than the Badlands? I love my MR pack, but being one of the loudest on the market is its only downfall.

    The squeeking can be a benefit though too.
    1) It lets you keep tabs on your partners behind you without you having to keep looking back.
    2) Large predators will be intriged by the sounds that resemble distressed prey and come in closer to investigate.(although this part is only good if your out hunting for a large predator).

    I've got 2 Badlands packs and neither one squeaks... but I do like the idea of the OX frame and the Sacrifice pack. I heard the Sacrifice is noisy because of the material they used.... but my pack would be tight with all the stuff in it so how could it be noisy?
    I Like your idea...

    If you have a pack whether it may be a badlands or other pack and it is squeaking, pull out the internal frame if that is what's making the noise and wrap with athletic tape. Replace and most of the time the squeak is gone! Give it a try.

    I've owned 2 badlands and absolutely love them. I haven't had any issues with noise and their customer service is second to none.

    In my opinion, Badlands makes a great pack... They are built well and while they had a few problems with zippers last year due to weak metal, they have fixed it since.

    I love the 2800 and 4500 models, I don't have any noise coming from either pack... My wife uses the diablo and the hyper hydro, no noise from those either...

    In all reality, if you are stalking in with your pack on anyhow... Good luck with that... I have yet to shoot even one animal with my pack on... Unless you are rambling through the woods and stumble on to a shooter on your way in or out, my pack has usually hit the dirt on a stalk several hundred yards before noise from it even becomes an equation...

    Lot's of great packs out there and every pack fit's each person differently, just like a bow find what you like best...

    Realizing that I am bumping an older thread, I also have and use the Badlands Superday and a 2200. I love both of these packs and they make no noise at all for me. Mine are 2008 (Superday) and 2009 (2200) models.

    i don't know about that personally because i haven't tried their other packs. i love my 2200. i've hauled 2 elk out with it and a mule deer. it also makes a great day pack. i have no trouble shooting with this pack on.

    I like my Badlands Superday, I lash it to an external frame, and it is big enough to hold most of my spike camp. When I offload my gear, it is compact enough not to be a pain when I'm hunting.

    Best of Luck,
    Jeff
