Awesome Pack Very Comfortable
I was hesitant to buy this pack because I had always used a different brand and had my pack from them for over 9 years. My packs get used hard during buffalo and elk season and not knowing what I was getting from Alps I didn't know how the straps would hold up to the heavy weight of a bison, but I like the bigger shelf. I am very impressed with the pack and glad I made the switch. The larger shelf for elk is great as it helps wrap up and over the nose a lot easier as shown in the picture. For bison the shelf gives me more room to help tighten the cape and head in and make it easier to haul out. Last year we hauled out 4 bison, 3 elk and 2 deer with the pack and more in the previous years. The pack is holding up great and is going on its 4th season and I haven't had any issues other then when I get a lot of dust and blood in a zipper then it binds a bit but cleans out easy and works great.

Alps Commander X - It's A Proven Hauler
I purchased 2 of the Commander X pack frames in 2018 for hauling out moose. One for myself, and one for the other guide that works with me. The outfitter that I own packs out several moose each fall. Over the last 3 seasons we have used it to haul out 7 moose all weighing between 800-1000 lbs dressed. Each pack has held up extremely well, I am beyond impressed. There is not a single rip or tear. I would mostly recommend these packs for game sized species of elk, deer, etc. I wouldn't purchase them again for moose only because the weight sits too low on your back even after adjusting the straps. If you are looking to pack out large game, I would recommend something with a shelf that keeps the animal up towards your mid-upper back. I can't say enough for the quality of the product so far though. I have been extremely happy.
