There are models, and there are super models. The Superday Pack is carried by more hunters than any other hunting pack in the world, with good reason. It performs like a frame pack, thanks to the contoured waist belt that hugs your hips to carry weight more effectively. The Superday also features our most comfortable molded memory foam back suspension with next-level venting to keep your core cool. In short, the Superday is one hot pack.

Great pack, I work in the northern Alberta oilfield and this pack serves me well. Tons of room for food and needed daily supplies. With all the various storage spots everything you need is very accessible. Robust zippers make access in gloves a breeze!
I waited until after I had deer season under my belt using this pack before I did this review. I absolutely love the pack, it fulfills my needs for a whitetail backpack. It will carry all of my stuff and a quartered up deer out with ease. Even loaded down, it is extremely comfortable to carry. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Made extremely well, I love the heavy duty zippers. Plenty of room to material is excellent and will hold up under any conditions. Structure around my back is extremely comfortable and I love the fact that it can carry my bow or my rifle plenty of room I am 61 250 pounds. Once again Badlands hits it out of the ballpark!!!
Great pack. Bought primarily for turkey hunting. Back straps and gun boot worked great for me to strap my chair to. I carry my shotgun. Only thing I would change about the pack is the positioning and size of the belt pistol holsters. As other reviewers have said, the holster is way to small (my Glock 43 was the largest pistol that would fit) and the holster is way too far back on the belt to be accessed with any speed or comfort. Living on the east coast this is not a deal killer as we don’t really have anything hunting us in the wild but certainly out west I would not be ok with this pistol set up if I was depending on it for personal protection.
I love this pack it has enough room to hold everything I need with room to spare. The side pockets on the waistband are very handy for quick access to snacks or a lighter etc. It is very comfortable and over time the foam conforms to your body which makes it more comfortable. I would definitely recommend the water resivoir for it. It is very easy to cinch down to fit your body. I love that it can hold a rifle or a bow that is one of my favorite features. I haven’t been able to try the hip hand gun holsters but I really want to. This is the best pack I have ever owned.
I bought this to use as a utility pack for hiking/hunting. I have used it several times already in the past 2 weeks and love it. It is extremely comfortable right from the first time you put it on. Easy to adjust on the fly and seems to be very durable. Just the perfect size to take all the bare essentials plus a few just in case items.
After copious amounts of research prior to picking a pack/brand, went with the superday. It was primarily used for whitetail hunting in the brush lands of west Texas. First, the pattern, approach FX, was perfect for our environment. Second, it was definitely large enough for what I carry with room to spare. Typically haul my binos, calls, flashlight, field dressing equipment, scent free spray and a backup jacket. It was mostly used to the truck, stand, and back (about a 1 1/2 mile walk). It completed that task perfectly. The fabric held up nicely in our thorn ridden country. It was comfortable and quiet. During bow season, strapped my bow to it and had zero issues. Primarily use mystery ranch for back country camping/hiking and hunting, but am curious now to see how badlands larger frame packs would perform.
Great Pack...plenty of room for your gear and very comfortable for those long all day hunts. I’ve not had it long or put it through the wringer to vouch for its durability but the build, stitching, and fabric all seem to be on point
Great pack that feels very very comfortable. Multiple strap adjustment options let you get the perfect fit and the waist strap does a really good job of taking the weight off your shoulders and down on to your hips. Pistol strap is back a little more than I like but I love the feature as a whole. Best pack I’ve owned by far.
Great day pack. Love the added padding for the holster and the rifle butt pocket. The only problem is the safety strap on the holster, the strap is not long enough to secure wide variety of pistols. My older day pack with the Velcro was better...The quick connect is a good idea but the plastic connector should be where your thumb and index finger can easily access it ie. near the outer portion of the pistols handle/grip. The holster could be moved forward a bit. Overall I love the ergonomics and comfortable feel of the pack.
The perfect pack for in the go turkey hunting or hunting from a tree stand where you are not carrying in your stand. If you're carrying a stand in, id probably go with the 2200 or something with a frame and a bit bigger. If you want to stick light maybe could get by with the diablo. If i had to find one negative with the pack it's that the rain cover doesn't fit as well as other packs since the straps go to the top of the pack. Once in the stand you can cover the whole pack with it but for walking it leaves some exposed. Not a deal breaker for me as i am not constantly in the rain. I went with this over the diablo because the diablo hypervent kind of cuts into the main compartment and could see that being difficult to dig things out of it.
This is an overall very sound pack that is very well built with plenty of room. It had plenty of comfort and a nice construction. My major problem is how loose the pack is when there is gear inside it. The middle of the pack bows out with gear inside. The sides were very loose and there were no shoulder adjustments like many of my other high end hiking packs making it too loose to be comfortable. Very well built pack but it has a lot of fundamental improvements with the sizing and fit. I had the same problem with the Monster fanny pack. These apparently are not made for short, athletic body type individuals. I am hoping the more I wear it the more it fits to me.
Bought this after hunting season was over. Have hiked around a bit with it and so far I really like it. My biggest observation has been sound. The pack, material and buckles are much quieter than my old one.
This is my first quality pack I’ve purchased and I’m very impressed.it is well built and holds all my gear and climbing sticks. When loaded everything is secured and the weight is mostly on my hips rather than hanging off my back causing fatigue throughout the day.
This bag is very light and super comfortable but still has a perfect amount of storage and accessory pockets. Basically guaranteed for life! Badlands products are legit and easy to see why this is their #1 seller. New favorite for me.
Good pack, pistol holster is nearly useless though.
I like this pack, and was particularly interested in the pistol holsters, as I am Alaskan and always have a pistol in case of bears, since my scoped hunting rifle isn’t suitable for dealing with a charging bear. The holster and its retaiiig strap cannot accommodate any of my pistols. Too small even for my Glock, or even my .22. There is plenty of room on the hip strap to make this holster larger, but it’s just tiny. I expect I’ll have someone modify it for me, but that should not be necessary. Otherwise I really like the pack and happily carry it on day hunts.
Best backpack I have ever owned. Only thing I would change is that the built in holster would be more accessible. This pack has lots of room and pockets for everything you need. I would buy this pack again.
Love the pack. Took a few days to figure out all the adjustments to make it fit right. Not used to having a pack that is so adjustable! The one downside is that the features that make it so comfortable also make it clumsy to get on and off in a box blind I may need another pack for box blind hunting and save this for the longer hikes. I should have thought of this. For the most part though, I live it. Spacious with many pockets. Super comfy. And customer service ROCKS. I had forgotten to apply a promo code and they gave me a refund right away. So awesome!
Let me start of this review by saying this pack is a quality built pack. 5 Stars for sure! I’ve owned the Superday a few weeks and carry it daily. Haven’t used it hunting yet, but use it to haul my military gear daily. This pack is more than adequate room for a 2-3 day trip. The fit is perfect, super comfortable and it molds to your waist/back. Color way blends in to numerous foliage/landscapes quite easily. The selection of two different color ways give you more blend ability. Overall I recommend this Badlands Pack for daily hunts or as a daily carry pack. Oh yeah did I mention their warranty! No questions asked repairs or replacements. Kind of unheard of in today’s world. This company stands by their products.
