Details: Saddle-Cloth; 2,200 cu. in. (seems roomier); camo; internal frame. Straightforward, zippered top-loader; hydration sleeve. $149. The Scoop: Badlands got this one just right. Easy-to-grasp zipper tabs, roomy main compartment, with structure to carry a load. A sound choice for an early-season elk daypack. The trapdoor in the back panel lets you access gear without putting the pack down.
