Wtb pack/frame
« on: October 08, 2019, 04:06:30 PM »
Tired of my old frame killing my back.

Im looking for a used pack, not worried about small tears or stains. As long as it has a few pads. Ideally in NE washington so no shipping necessary.

Thanks

I just ordered this off amazon.  The bag is removable for use as a pack frame.  Haven't tried it yet but looking forward to it.  Seems very well built and wasn't expensive.

I have a frame pack that I like but don't carry it while hunting and was tired of hiking back empty or with just a small load in the day pack so this year I bought the Commander Light frame and fitted it with a removable day pack bag - it's lighter than my Tenzing day pack and carries the same amount and I can bring out a full load on the first trip. I am now a fan of the ALPS Outdoors pack and am sure the full size Commander is a quality pack for the price  :twocents:

I'm trying out the Alps commander also. I've taken it out bear hunting a few times. Haven't packed any meat out yet, but I'm liking it so far.

Welp, after reading the reviews I just ordered one.  We'll see how it goes.  Hopefully it will see some meat this season.

I had one for a few years (ALPS), seemed like a buckle broke or stitching came apart every year so I was always repairing it, its hard to get it to fit the way you really need it to for heavy loads as well. Went to a Eberlestock-F1HP-Mainframe pack with batwings and have never regretted it.

Man I'll tell you this.. If you can save the money, go for a premium pack.  I've hunted with several different packs and I always avoided that Kool-Aid.  After I finally bit the bullet and picked up an Exo, my life changed! 

Mystery Ranch, Kifaru, Stone Glacier, Exo, etc.  Great packs.  Yes, they're more than $150.  If you can hold out and save, your back sure will appreciate it.

Got my pack in the mail the other day.  Seems very well built but it sure is noisy.  Ill have to find some little rubber washers for it.  The only other bad thing I found so far is the gun scabbard is part of the removable pack.  So if you are just using it to haul meat, there is no place to haul your rifle.

I call mine mr squeaky.  I switched out most of the pins with locking nuts and bolts. Makes it much more sturdy, however it's a dedicated meat hauler because I tried using it to backpack hunt with and after 2 miles with 40 pounds in it, it kills my back and just doesnt sit right.  Time to spend some real money and get an eberlestock

Pack came today. Seems like a solid piece of equipment. Should work well for what I need it for. Like others said it is pretty noisy, but comfortable. The buckles are definitely made out of pretty cheap plastic.

do you guys hunt with your pack frames? i hunt with a badlands 2200, it feels so heavy lol not sure what all i pack in it. but my plan is to take a pack of meat out in our packs, and then come back in with the packframe that can hold more. is this the common pratice, some places we hunt, i think it would be easier to just hunt with the pack frame for the day, wouldnt that save potentially an extra trip?
