Firstly, Badlands makes some of the finest packs on the planet.. Not to mention, their warranty is equals their packs.
I have carried a super day pack for 15 years and it awesome . 8/ 10 day hunts in Alaska..
Your problem is your carrying a fanny IMHO. I hate fanny packs!!
Get yourself a real pack that your shoulders and hips carry. I would buy a badlands and be done. If you rip it, or a bear eats it, they will fix or replace.. No questions asked.. I know cause it happened to me.
I bow hunt now ( almost exclusively) and I still carry my badlands every time I step in the woods.
