    WTB day/overnight pack 30-45L

    Looking for a pack for doing long days or overnight trips with something like a hunters element elevation pack or stoney creek ranger. Open to suggestions on what others are using.

    Thanks

    I use a Markhor Eterlou 45 for overnighters, fits enough gear for an overnighter or a weekend trip if you are packing light. Handles the weight very well, and is great as a large alpine day pack when chasing Tahr.

    Badlands is my preference - 2200 or 2800
    Their warranty is pretty much u break it, we fix it

    These are great packs. Very sturdy, quiet and can hold a boned out animal

    Just bought a badlands off faregame myself.
    Seen them up close when some yanks I was looking after had badlands everything.
    The 2200 is 38lL from memory. Nice practical pack.
    I couldn't resist the sale he just had. Was cheaper than anywhere else I had looked.

    38L would be plenty for a sleeping bag and a few warm clothes etc plus fly? Just trying to decide what size I really need

    I can fit a fly/small tent, thermarest & fart sack, cooking gear & other equipment, plus enough clothes for a weekend hunting in the 45L. Plus If I pack it right and I can fit a boned out deer inside by strapping my roll mat to the outside.

    The extra space a 45L gives you comes in really handy.

    Nothing. It's a great pack. It just lacks a bit of capacity if anything. It was the smallest one they made at the time.
    I need a pack for my son so he can carry a bit of gear. He was skiting about how easy a 4 1/2 hr walk he did the other day was. I will see how good he is loaded up with all my heavy stuff ha ha
    And I thought I should try a badlands after seeing one up close.
    I spose I am a bit partial to good gear, and dabbling in freak territory but still I am just a student to you KJ lol!!!!

    I picked up a Badlands sidewinder off fairgame.Completely water proof and to noisy for the bush but its a brilliant day/overnight pack for the tops. Most comfortable pack Iv carried. Definatly better than the Erblestock I'v used for the past 4-5 years. Easily fitted 2 red back legs in the outer webbing. Didn't feel like they where there once the pack was on.

    I think it was you that talked me into one iirc.
    Nothing wrong with having a choice either I reckon.

    You have just given me licence to spend yours on a cooper, so don't get to smug. My cream off the top could pay for a flight home ha ha ha.
    Good idea you gave me tho. So you are useful in some ways.
