Rated 5 out of 5 by Number5 Great pack I have looked long and hard for a good pack, and both the hybrid packs are what I was looking for. Just one is a little bigger than the other with more interior pockets. I bought both depending on what I needed for the hunt. If I need more, I go with the bigger pack. The shoulder straps are a little difficult to tighten due to them anchoring just under the armpits. Other than that, both are an exceptional value with lots of storage room and item specific pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huntingmom Great Purchase For 5'2" Lady Hunters After looking for a new larger backpack to carry all that woman "think" they need to carry I came across this one. After reading the review I was worried about it being to big for my 5'2" size. As a lady hunter it is very hard to find gear/clothing that fits us in a man domination sport. After reviewing it in the store I knew this was the one. TELL YOU WHAT... It carried wonderfully all day with tons of stuff and a set of extra warm thick hunting cloths. Lots of pockets to know right where thing are when you need to grab quickly. I have loaded this pack and still have room for more. Won't go hunting without it. Even whith back/shoulder problems this pack was great to carry. December 29, 2009
Rated 3 out of 5 by nkptexan make sure you know what you are using it for The pack is well built and not going to fall apart. I used this pack for 10 days hunting in southeast utah. I used pack for 2 days to pack to camp and rest of time used pack for day trips. Comments are as follows: 1) pack had lots of room 2) has slot for rifle or bow 3) has attachment for hydration pack. Those are good things, here are the details I thought they should have given more thought to: 1) the light and glass cleaning pouch on shoulder straps get in the way when shouldering rifle (if right handed, the glass wipe is in way, if left handed, light pouch is in the way). You can buy lights to attach to headgear and lense cleaning equipment is not a "be here now" piece of equipment. In addition, I like to hook gear like GPS, game calls, (immediately needed equipment) and there are no provisions for that on the shoulder staps. 2) Redhead hydration pack water nozzle requires 2 hand use. I tried just using one hand but I couldn't make it happen. I have other hydration packs that only require 1 hand use. 3) The fanny pack has no straps or other methods of strapping sleeping bag to pack 4) main pack has two sleeves for spotting scope. I used them for packing water bottles. I generally use 2-4 liters of water a day when hunting elk (walking and hiking), I carry binoculars and rifle scope so water storage is more critical to me than scoping. This is even more critical if you are camping and there is no water source nearby. Your time in the woods becomes limited by water supply. 5) the shoulder straps tend to pull shoulders back, making hiking uncormfortable after a while. I think the straps should connect towards the belt buckle area of body rather than under the armpits. 6) the cap of the hydration pack causes pain in middle of back. Even after loosening shoulder straps and rearranging gear, I could still feel the cap. (this happens on other vendor's packs too). It would be great if they could design a fill port that extends through the top of the pack. 6) packing the rifle was a wrestling match and I only used it when I hiking up the canyon to get to where I was going to camp. It was such a chore that I did not attempt to use it any other time, even when it would have made my hiking more convenient. I did not remove the bolt from my rifle, that might have made it easier to pack. You have to slide your gun (butt first) through a sleeve sewn into the pack until the butt of gun slides into a puch which zips out of the bottom of the pack. The straps and all hold the gun securely, it is just a really tight fit. I have seen packs where you fold a flap over the gun and I would consider that system if I was thinking of buying another pack.. 7) It seems the design plan was to build a pack and you could add "attachment" pouches (for water bottles and tech gear). I submit that you don't have to make "attachment" pouches, rather they could just build in some of those net type pouches or net pouches with zip cords at the top and you could put whatever you wanted in the net pouch. 8) I would recommend including some blaze orange on the pack. Doesn't have to be all over the pack. In my opinion, this pack is good for hiking into and out of an area where you are going to camp and for spotting for game. It is not on the top of my list for backpacks to wear while you are hunting. October 15, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by utefan Amazing backpack I bought this backpack right before archery Elk season in Utah. I went hunting in the Uintah mountains. The mornings and and evenings get very cold, even in August. My and two buddies camped up there in the mountains for five nights and left camp on foot at about 5AM every morning. The pack was plenty big enough to hold all of my hunting needs (Binoculars, spotting scope, jacket, sweatshirt, lunch, water, etc). On our fifth day up there we spotted what looked like a 300 class bull at about 5pm. I stocked it for a good 2 1/2 to 3 hours, until I finally got into position for my shot. I got within 40 yards and took the shot, the bull ran about 100 yards into a clearing and dropped dead in his tracks. The sun was starting to set and we were about 4 miles from camp. One of my buddies went back to camp to get the truck while we stayed and quartered the meat. We had 2 way radios with us so we were able to locate a spot to pick up the meat that was a little closer, but still about 2 miles away, over very rough terrain. The pack was big enough to carry over 80lbs of meat each trip. Since I had the biggest pack I got to carry the most meat. With the three of us, we were able to get the whole elk in two trips each. We didn't get all the meat back to the truck until 2AM, but It was an experience that I will never forget. The elk scored 280, but thats still a trophy, and will make a great shoulder mount over my fireplace. Without the pack, we wouldn't have been able to get all of the elk out in one night. The pack, has so many great features, such as the LED light, as well as the detachable waist pack. This pack is great for the hunter that is going to be out before sunrise and come back after dark. Its big enough to carry all of your equipment, clothing, lunch, and water, as well as some extra room for anything that you pick up along the day. Very comfortable and ideal for the serious hunter. Why purchase a smaller Badlands pack for twice the price? Thanks Bass Pro Shops and Redhead, amazing product and fast shipping. August 20, 2009

Not sure, what type of additional info you are looking for but I hope this helps. Thanks
A:Yes. The pack does allow for some adjustments
A:I have been using this pack now for about a year. I am 6 ft, 210#, and it is easy to get on and off. Plenty of adjustment in the shoulder straps. I dont even use the belt strap as the pack rides very well on me between my shoulders up fairly high.
A:without question "YES" with one caveat. As long as you are returning to a camp. This would not work well if you have to pack up everything every day and move. This is definitely a hunting pack and not a camping pack.
A:I wouldn't use it except for a day pack. I carry emergency supplies, game processing supplies and enough gear to spend the night in the woods if I have to. No tent/sleeping bag or stove. I try to travel light and typically stay out till after dark elk hunting. My pack loaded ready to go with a full water bladder weights about 8#.
A:It has an opening closed by a zipper on the bottom side of the external back compartment. All you do is unzip it and pull out the cloth pouch and place the rifle through the top behind the external pocket into the pouch. It also has additional straps to secure the rifle on the outside.
A:The pack has a zippered part on the bottom of the top pack. Inside this zippered part is a pull out sleeve where the butt of the gun/bow would go. There is also a opening between the the big zippered pocket and the outer two zippered pockets that the rifle would pass through to hold it in.
A:I wouldn't strap a rifle to it. I put my pack on then slig my BLR or my bow over.
Details:I'm worried about the balance being off with the bow strapped to the outside of the pack....
A:I do not think it would be a problem. I have about 25lbs. loaded in the pack right now and walked around the woods for 3 hours on a scouting trip. Hardly noticed the pack. Don't think the few added pounds of a bow/rifle will affect the balance or weight on the shoulders. The fanny pack has a waist strap that helps with the load.
A:It will carry it but will make it back heavy.
A:With the shoulder straps, and a crossover clip, along with the waist belt, you'd be ok.
A:absoloutle definatly its huge
A:If you cannot get one days supplies in this pack your trying to carry too much. I carry a weeks worth of clothes in it with room to spare
Details:The bag has four female end clips that I would like to know how to use. It looks like you could use extra compression straps with them if the straps had male ends, but where would I get these exact straps?
A:Those straps are for the straps that hold the fanny pack on the bottom. When your not using the fanny pack the straps clip into them so they don't hang and make noise. And I keep the fanny pack off and use these straps all the time to hold things down.
A:in the camping section of a sporting goods store. And those female connections are for pulling up the bottom of the main pack when you remove the fanny pack lower section, which is also held on by the quick connect clips.
A:Their is an opening down between the second and third pockets and on the bottom a pocket has a pouch that folds out to hold the but of your gun.
A:theres a pocket that flips down from the inside of another and holds the shot gun upright threw the pack.
A:I don't see how this would work well strapped to a shotgun. Actually I'm not sure why you'd even want to.
