    The 2200 is simply the most versatile pack on the planet. It does everything superbly, from a day hike to hauling moose quarters. We sell more 2200s to guides and hardcore hunters than all other packs combined. From its height and frame,to its batwing configuration the 2200 is designed tom compress your gear so efficiently and tightly that it has no choice but to follow your every movement. Also, you never need to take the pack off — just spin it around and presto you have access to all your gear

    Fabric so strong the cartilage in your knees will tear first. Like all of our packs, the 2800 is built with the finest materials including our own proprietary KX032 Fabric, and aramid thread. Plus with its unique split design the 2800 allows you to carry your gear and your quarters so you can pack it all out in one trip — not that you should. Your knees aren't covered by our legendar warranty, so considered yourself warned.

    this is the one I use for hunting.

    What do you use?

    Don't have a Badlands backpack, I'll have to check 'em out. With a warranty like that, you can't go wrong. I'm sure you pay for it but would be worth it.

    The red one being the largest internal frame, don't use it for hunting for obvious reasons but it does carry gear for the trip. Had to buy a couple camo backpacks for carrying gear while hunting. The bag on the external frame comes off for packing game. Need to get a new mountaineering internal frame and some more lightweight mountaineering gear. Sold most of my stuff years ago, when I quit high country backpacking. I've been eyeballing gear at Andy & Bax lately and kicking myself.

    Is that red one from Marlboro? Asdie from not seeing the logo on it it looks EXACTLY like one I got several years ago by sending in Marlboro UPCs. Just wondered, and if not what kind is it since its most likely the same manufacturer just logoed for them.

    I have been looking at picking up 'the ultimate MOLE pack' from cheaper than dirt when I get the chance. As far as for hunting, around here if I use a pack at all its just something like a small day pack/book bag type thing or generaly just stuffed into cargo pockets.

    These badlands packs feel like half their size, real comfortable. and super quiet in the woods.

    No logo or label to tell who made it, looks exactly like the one my buddy got from Marlboro. I've used it quite a bit, it's a pretty good pack and comfortable

    I bought a German mountain rucksack for about $7 a couple of years ago, mostly to have a bag to keep in the car that I would probably never use. When I went on an ammo run to a gun show, I emptied the bag and took it into the show with me. I walked out with over 2,000 rounds of ammo strapped to my back. No ripping. That bag earned my respect. Now the ALICE pack is the one in the trunk that never sees the light of day. My $7 German mountain ruck is my go-to bag.

    It's not very big. It has no frame. But it's rugged, and has held up in heavy rain. It has external provisions for strapping all kinds of stuff to it. It does have a sternum strap.

    Looks like the one in this auction:
