Hunting Pack

I'm thinking of getting a new hunting pack to use for carrying stuff to my treestand. Any suggestions?

In cold weather those bags make noise.

Re: Hunting Pack

Depending on the size you need and amount you want to spend,
The Badlands 2200 is a great pack. Comfortable and roomy. Their Superday is a bit smaller and not as expensive.

For a day pack, I have been pleased with my Hazard 4 Patrol pack.

Re: Hunting Pack

It depends on when/what you intend to carry. I really am happy with the Badlands Reactor pack. Less than $100, it has the fuzzy facing on the outside and came with a water bladder. That said, I long have gotten rid of the bladder (it leaked), but am super happy with the pack. It's only 1000 cubic inches, but has straps on the bottom to carry raingear and bulkier items. Once in the tree, it's small and inconspicuous. Initially, I was worried that it may be too small, but has not been the case. Perfect for MY treestand hunts.

Archery is a humbling endeavor.

Re: Hunting Pack

I'd go with a badlands, can't beat their warranty, and design details. The more I use a fanny pack the more I find I like it, the bigger the pack the more stuff I'd take with me only to sit in the pack

Re: Hunting Pack

Badlands makes good stuff.

I run a Tenzing 1200 (or something like that) for my 2-3 hour sits. It's a little 1200ci pack that holds my field dressing supplies and such, and an extra jacket or whatever if I need it.

If I have my daughter with me and need to haul a pile of stuff with me (keeping kids warm, fed, and comfortable makes I get loaded down like a mule, lol), I run an Eberlestock X2, and love it. It's bigger than I'd want for a 2 or 3 hour sit on my own, though.

I had a small badlands pack (forget the model) and loved the fit and comfort, but it was made to just haul a hydro bladder for hiking, I guess, and I used it for gear. It was ONE big pouch and I didn't like that I didn't have any pockets/divisions to keep stuff separated and organized. So I went to the Tenzing....but I liked the fit and weight handling of that little Badlands.
