    Badlands Packs

    Just wondering if anyone has had anything to do with the Badlands packs? I bought a Badlands Summit pack a couple of months back and find it great so I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a pack with plenty of room and pockets. It has a great guarantee and Hunting & Fishing Dunedin gave me a good deal

    Grabbed a couple of their packs when I was in the US. The warranty is fantastic, which is fortunate as one of the packs didn't last a week before a strap fell off. That same pack also had it's waterproof zip give up the ghost not long after. By that time I was back in NZ, and sending the pack back to the US for repair would cost more than I paid for it.
    The little reactor day pack is a different story altogether. It's seen a lot of use when out looking for deer, and most nights to carry the battery for my rabbit / possum shooting light. So far it's standing up very well to the abuse, and I wouldn't hesitate to grab another.

    I have a 2200 which I like. Loaded up it is comfortable and the only one of several packs I own that sits properly on my hips.

    That's a pity you had a bad experience, they actually encourage you to throw them under a car while your mate rarks over it and if damaged they will still fix or replace it. They even say if you buy it second hand in a garage sale and you have any trouble with it they will fix it. They are bloody light too which is a bonus.

    Have the HyperVent that I bought about 10-12 years ago. Bloody brilliant and has carried a fair amount of weight comfortably.

    I've got a 2200 and its great. I do find it a little heavy. Also a bit big for a day pack (most of my opportunities are an escape for 12 hours or less) and a little small for a 2-3day. Although this is most likely just down to my inexperience and taking to much shit.
    But they are solid as and extremely comfortable to carry. I wouldn't hesitate in buying another.
