If you are doing a lot of walking then a great pack.. not a good pack is an investment.
Badlands makes some amazing stuff... many of which I want to try.
Before Badlands was a thought I purchased a Kelty hunting pack that has served my need very well.
The pack I use is no longer made, but has served me very well. Water resistant with a built in hunter orange cover that is water proof. It is a shame that they no longer make it. Imagine the Shrike 32 in a hunting configuration....
If I had to buy based upon what is available now, I would by Badlands.
