Badlands Diablo Day Pack Backpacks
Good but not great
I bought this pack for the Hypervent feature specifically because I hate having a sweaty back all the time. It works. I have noticed that I don’t sweat as much with the back of the pack off my back like it is. I love how light the pack is and that’s its narrow enough to still carry a rifle and draw a bow.
My major dislike about this pack is the hydration system. They claim its hydration compatible but it is lacking in my opinion. The hose comes out from under the Hypervent support and kinks if you pull the hose up over your shoulder to take a swig. Also, the pack is a little short for those who are taller. I’m 6’2” and it’s a little short for me, not enough to send it back, but enough to make me wish it was longer at times. Otherwise it is a quality pack worth the money!

This is a good bag. Comfortable and a good size. The only problem I find with the bag which is not and should not be a deterrent is that I find the pocket at the bottom is too low so anything in that pocket gets a all the weight and pressure from the main pocket and when placing the bag on the ground. And the metal brackets on the back that are use for air flow are too arched and impede on the main compartment. That being said the Diablo is a good bag but check out the bag and see what you think. I like.

This is the perfect pack for a day of hunting, in my opinion. It is well thought-out and has smart features without being overly complicated. The suspension system lifts the pack off your back to create more airflow which is really nice for warm, early season hunts, and the suspension means you can carry a surprising amount of weight with this mid-sized pack. The fabric is quiet, and the pack stays out of the way when drawing a bow. Don't know what else I would need.

It's always great to have your expectations exceeded when you purchase a product. Plenty has been said about this product line and it's all true. The only thing that seems a little confusing is which pack to buy. I think I made the right decision in the Diablo but then I saw another pack of there's online that carried more cubic volume that was lighter weight. Sometimes buying online is hard because you can't see, feel and compare products
