New backpack needed any advice? Badlands?

Possibly looking at the Badlands Diablo, Superday or 2200. Problem is finding a store that you can compare them. Mostly online stores have them. Anyone using these and any advice for one over another. Thanks.

Re: New backpack needed any advice? Badlands?

I have a badlands superday which is my workhorse.
I like the setup so much I recenty purchased the badlands OX
I think they are worth every penny. Unconditional lifetime warranty and the quality is tremendous

Re: New backpack needed any advice? Badlands?

I have the whitetail hybrid. Tons of pockets and very well built. It's very comfortable to carry even with a hefty load. My only complaint is that I wish it was a little bigger (my own fault for not looking at in person before buying). It does however have lots of options for straping items to the outside. The gun pocket is a great feature.

I have a badlands ultraday. I'm not the type of person to take a huge pack hunting and the ultraday is the perfect size for me. I love the quality of the pack and the lifetime warranty. Like gsptarget said, they are certainly worth every penny.

I've got the superday and use it for everything. Its the best pack I have owned so far. Spend the money and get a good one you get what you pay for.

Re: New backpack needed any advice? Badlands?

I have the Badlands 2200. It's a top quality pack. I wore it daily for 3 weeks while on a DIY archery Elk hunt in Colorado this year. The internal frame and padding for your back and waist belt make it very comfortable. The only thing that would make it better would be badlands hypervent suspension system to give your back some breathing room.
You can see a good sample of the packs you listed at Gander Mountain.
