I'm looking for some advice on what day pack I should get for an elk hunt (gun) next year plus an everyday hunting pack. Not looking for a framed pack, just a standard backpack. I have been looking a t badlands but not sure if they are worth the price or if there is another brand you all would suggest. Needs to be light, confortable, and be compact yet functional

I have a badlands Superday. Works good out west and here. It is absolutely light comfortable and compact. I do wish it was a tad bit bigger for more clothes. Badlands customer service is fantastic.

It's a good spot. Just not today.

Looks like a nice pack. If you select pack only without the frame do you still get the waist and chest straps?

Super day has the gun/bow carrier built in . Hip belt and lots of pockets, lots of straps . If you are elk hunting out west this is a good choice. I have a Badlands( forgot model name) that's almost identical to Superday but does not have the pockets on the hip belt. I found them annoying and not a heck of a lot storage . Mine also has a pullout rain cover in the base.

I have a Tenzing 6000 absolutely love it after trying many others including Badlands, check them out 6000 if you are 6' or taller 5000 under 6'.

Looks like a nice pack. Even though only a little more than the others I need to try to watch all my $ so I can buy all the gear I need. 20 bucks here and there can buy something else later

In my experience.
I have used Badlands, Eberlestock, Kuiu..
Currently my wife and I use Kuiu Icon Pro 3200. Also had 1850..
Kuiu Icon Pro has Carbon fiber frame.. Hands down best pack I have owned and used.

I would buy Eberlestock X2 pack over a Badlands pack any day..
X2 has an internal gun scabbard.
Way more comfortable and better for hauling than Badlands.
My experience.
