The Under Armour Multi-Day Pack. Under Armour’s foray into the hunting backpack market is not starting with a bang! More like a thud!
COMFORT: This pack is comfortable in the store, but if you put any weight in the giant main storage compartment it gets uncomfortable really quickly! The shoulder and waist straps leave much to be desired, the padding is thin and so are the straps themselves. I wouldn’t trust them to hold up if I had 150 lbs of Elk or Deer on my back. I really feel that this pack was made by people who have never been hunting and do not understand the demands of a Multi-Day hunt.
STORAGE: The storage in the main compartment is good if you are packing clothes and gear that is easily zipper for easy access to the main compartment. Overall the Under Armour pack has around 1600 cubic inches of storage capacity which actually is a little understated as you can extend the top straps for additional stuffage! conformable. Other than the main compartment the pockets sparse, there is an internal pocket for storage and a side enter
FUNCTIONALITY: The pack functions great if you are planning on only using it to pack clothes, but without an internal frame I would not pack any game out with it. It is made more for hikers than hunters and their needs.
SIZE: The backpack has a good size to it and the expandable straps allow it to fit all sizes
DRAWBACKS: Being an avid hunter I need a pack that will be able to carry my game out as well as my supplies in. This pack is made to carry supplies, NOT game! This pack does not come with a hydration pack. The side zipper which gives you ease of access to the main compartment seems very flimsy to me. If you were to get a load in the main compartment, I am not sure that this zipper would hold up. Many of the zippers are plastic rather than metal
OVERALL: I would recommend this pack to anyone who is taking an overnight hiking trip and wants a lightweight pack that can pack a lot of gear. As a hunter I would not recommend this to my brethren. The pack seems to be very flimsy and without an internal frame it makes packing game out an uncomfortable proposition at best. If you’re a hunter looking for a high capacity pack with an internal frame I would step up to a Badlands 2200 backpack. Happy hunting!
