I've had this pack on my back every hunting season since 2011... I've owned 2 of them. The first had almost 8 years of use, I estimate about 15 big game hunts in Nevada, and plenty of heavy pack-outs as the pack doubles as a hybrid pack frame. After I melted a hole in it with my ATV exhaust on accident I sent it to Badlands for repair and they sent me a brand new one. The lifetime warranty the pack comes with is well worth it. My newer 2200 had a few upgrades and sports the same rugged build as the original. No rips, sticky zippers, or seam failures... just a lot of sweat and blood stains.
