OK
So I sucked in the Camofire lure & bit on this new pack @ 50% off. Does anyone have any experience with this Easton Fullbore backpack?
Its similar to the Badlands 2800 but has some extras like the hauling straps on the back & a dry sack. I don't know if I will ever use the dry sack, seems to take up too much room when not in use. The compartment flaps (like the 2800) are cool cause they fold over each other, and the pack will really compress.

Anyways, anyone know how this pack will work, or am I going to start getting more calls about buying a water skiing lake in Death valley.

Looks interesting enough T. I wouldn't mind fondling it myself. I may have taken the bait too if I didn't have half a dozen packs in the garage already. That reminds me... I missed my PA meeting this week. Crap.

I've got it @ home.
Looks like it will do the job, but I've got to load some weight to it to find how solid the support is.
The zippers & stitching don't seem to be as strong as the badlands packs, but we will see.
1 item which was worth every penny I spent, is the emergency whistle built in to the shoulder strap. :smiley-wnk-yellow:

You never know when a good whistle may be needed...Load that bad boy up and camp out in the backyard...

The real test would be to load it up with a jug of water and hike the streets of LA Jolla... if you have the balls to do it... Ed F

Rape whistles come in very handy T... especially in LA Jolla.

Still around girls. Killed a few pigs, a couple TX deer, a little local buck, couple bobcats, and went on a fun elk hunt this year. But done even more stroller pushing and diaper changing. All good in my hood, just don't come around here much anymore. Too much duck talk.

Quack Quack. Someone has to keep the duck hunters in line. I miss yours and Eds exchanges. :smiley-ugly-lol-bashing-sign:

So I unloaded the badlands & filled up the Easton with all my regular stuff.
I went for a little walk with the pack on my back. Pretty comfortable & it compressed nicely.
The only item that concerns me is that the main compartment is much smaller than most packs. Meaning that my water bladder takes most of the space, and there's not much room to stuff in the game bags or extra shirt. But the wings have slots which can handle those items.

So I've taken a pack on several hikes, & have decided that it's not going to work as well as my 2800.
The main compartment is just too small to pack my needs. And if I want to haul more, I have to attach the "Dry sack" which comes with the pack.
But I'll keep the whistle!

Bummer........but the whistle could be fun


I still use my MR w/NICE frame but no whistle.
Its a bit heavy compared to some but it has tons of options and can haul more than I can carry.
