Terrific new backpack

Postby Squirrelhawker » Fri Sep 12, 2008 7:48 am

I took the plunge. Been using a catquiver for the past decade or so and it finally wore out. Never been really happy with any daypacks I've bought, used or researched. I wanted one that would do it all. Bow, gun,muzzleloader, hiking, everything.
 
I think I now own it.
 
It is a Badlands Ultrapak. Anybody familiar?
 
I'll try and keep the description short:
 
Internal frame
 
Top compartment guaranteed waterproof with rubber waterproof zipper
 
Every strap and buckle is totally adjustable and quick release.
 
Set-up for a hydration bladder
 
Wrap around waist compartments with waist belt
 
All zippers have a large rubber pull tab that gets stickier the wetter it gets
 
Internal frame keeps pack off the middle of your back allowing air circulation through mesh webbing.
 
Rubberized adjustable harness for strapping on your bow, gun or quarters.
 
Bottom straps for extra gear.
 
Unconditionally gauranteed for life for any reason whatsoever, no questions asked, ever.
 
I gotta say, I'm pretty pleased.

I have a Badlands 2200 and I absolutely love it.  Never had any experience with the one you have though.  Their warranty is awesome!!

I had to order it from my local bowshop. It was the last one the warehouse had. I would hit their website.
I paid 80.00 You would not regret it.

I had to order it from my local bow shop. It's the only place I've seen them but they must be available elsewhere.
They had to order it and the warehouse where he ordered it was out of it for the season, with this being the last one.
I would try and find their website and see what the dealer situation is. I paid about 80.00 for it.
This company used to make high level expedition packs with hunting being a sideline until hunters discovered their stuff, now thats all they make.
No lie it would not surprise me if these guys had government contracts and Navy SEALS weren't wearing their stuff. It's that good.

There are couple sizes in that range. Not sure which one I got. I'm a little embarrassed to tell you what I paid. It wasn't even close to 140.00 though.[;)]

If any of you have ever done a back country hunt where you are hiking in 10+miles and have enough food and gear for 5-10 days you will know the importance of a high quality pack.
 
Badlands makes a great pack and they back it up.

I use a small camo back-pack to carry in extra winter clothing, etc, and I just normaly hunt the back 40 acres. I always use my bow-sling when I go hunting. Does the badlands pac have a bow holder on it?
