Petersen's Hunting Editor's ChoiceThe Traverse X starts out as your go to daypack for backcountry hunts with capabilities to carry everything from your expensive glass to your trusty side arm and rifle or bow, and then it ends up a meat hauling solution for the spoils of a successful hunt. It accomplishes these mission specific tasks by carrying features that cater to the western hunter. Wing pockets serve as both fleece-lined storage for a spotting scope and as part of the lashing system for hauling out meat. The stow away meat shelf is the other hidden component to the Traverse X that transforms and lets the pack live up to its reputation allowing weight to be added and carried securely and comfortably. The combination of Lycra shoulder straps, a molded foam back panel, and padded waist belt along with load lifters and anti sway straps makes this very capable pack a necessity for the 1 or 2 night stay in the backcountry.

Great product! Plenty of room and well made.

So close to perfect with one major flaw

Im going to start of this review by saying I think this pack is a GREAT pack for everything it can do. It truly is a one pack to do all. The pack looks to be of very high quality. All the straps and stitching and buckles seem very durable. To compare, Alps might be a sub company of Badlands this pack and the badlands2200 pack are nearly identical but the Alps gives a bit more room with with the pockets in the wings and the shoulder straps made of better material. So the pack is plenty big to hold anything you would need for a day or possibly two. It has enough pockets without having too many. I really liked this pack and it was going to be my do all pack however there is one flaw I found that for me ended up meaning I had to return it. I am 5'8'' and a somewhat muscular stocky upper body. Because of my torso length I would have to tighten the shoulder straps almost fully which then did two things. It pulled on my shoulders and the straps pinched my neck. after using this pack for a full day of hiking my shoulders and neck were so sore. If I loosened up the shoulder straps the pack would sit way too far down on my back and the lumbar support would be too low. I was really really bummed I wouldn't be able to make this work but it just wont with my body style. I would say if youre 5'10" or taller this pack will be great for you but if youre shorter you would have to be of a skinnier build to make this pack work. This is not really in fault of the pack the only thing that could have help is if the shoulder straps were wider coming out of the pack then when tightened it wouldn't have pinched my neck. BTW the Badlands 2200 has this same problem and I compared them side by side. I decided it's too hard to truly have one pack that can do it all so im going the route of a day pack and a frame pack to haul meat. Ill keep checking in with Alps to see if they make any improvements over the next few years and if they seem to have fixed this I will definitely give it a go again.
