I am looking to get the badlands 2200 pack and am just looking to see the thoughts of anyone who had used this pack. How is it for hauling out a meat. I know it says it will hold a bow, but just curious if it actually does a decent job of that as well? Thanks for your opinions!

The 2200 is a great pack, and will do all it claims to. It's a bit on the heavy side for me, but that's because I have bad knees, shoulders and a bad back... :>/ I'm opting for the lightweight packs these days, and using the youngun's to do most of the meat packin' :thumb

I have been using mine for a long time, maybe 8 or 9 years. I love it. It carries a load (like a boned out hind quarter) really well. I don't have much to compare it to as my old pack was a Cabela's Elite and it isn't half the pack the Badlands is. The only thing I do wrong with mine is I put too much in it. :) By the middle of the week I'm pulling stuff out that I never should have packed in the first place. The handle stitching blew out on mine and I haven't had it fixed. I never think of it until I need it. I never use the meat shelf. I always just put it in the top. I wouldn't want one bigger or smaller. I would also get a spare waist belt fastex buckle set for it. Mine broke on the first day of the season and I had to rig up the waist belt and could never get it tight enough. Badlands sent me a free replacement. Of course I had to pack an elk out of a hole that year. A spare buckle set would have saved me some grief.
