late season Elk

I just finished a late season cow elk hunt and this pack proved to be worth it's weight in gold. We packed out two elk on this pack along with carrying a full supply of needed items for the freezing weather. This is a comfortable pack and I am not sure how you would ever fill it up.. It's has an amazing amount of space.

Amazing Pack

I ran the Ox solely in 2012 every day I spent on the hill weather it was a day trip or a 5 day back country adventure. Having over 60 days in the field last year and killing and Hauling out 4 of my own animals 1 Bull Elk 1 cow Elk 1 mule deer buck and 1 Doe antelope plus 7 other elk and mule deer. This is the pack to have on your back for hauling out your game in comfort and style. Very supportive and handles a very large amount of animal at once. I packed out my whole Mule deer Buck in one trip with all my Daily gear in the pack as well. You have to own the Ox if your serious about getting off the mountain in less pain and less trips.

Mack Truck

I have hauled multiple deer out of the back country with this pack. It has surpassed my expectations in regards to hauling capability. Absolutely comfortable, if you are looking for a pack that will replace all others then look no further!!!

NM Backcountry

I used this pack on two separate backcountry hunts for Elk and Barbary Sheep. It holds up to heavy loads extremely well and is very comfortable. At 4,400 cubic inches it is awesome how it's pockets are laid out. Best pack out there!

It will replace all.

When I bought this pack its sole purpose in my house was to replace all of my other packs with the exception of a day pack. Mission complete and job well done. It is extremely rugged, comfy to wear and has enough room to carry anything you want/need. I can't tell you how many pack I have destroyed hunting in the winter in AK at -45F. I can't wait to replace my day pack now with a Badlands Pack.

Professional Grade

As a Train to Hunt Nationals Qualifier, I purchased this pack to prepare for and race the Train to Hunt National Competition where we pack weights exceeding 150lbs for time. My military ruck, just couldn't hold up to that kind of weight (broke two straps). I researched long and hard before buying the OX. I was not disappointed. I'm on month two of every other day pack marches and carrying over 125 pounds. This pack can handle more than most humans and the design makes it comfortable and distributes the weight in a very 'carryable' manner. The adjustability to my shorter frame makes all the difference in the load-bearing. Very pleased with the purchase and absolutely worth every penny of what seems at first to be a high price!

Built like an Ox

Great pack, I found it to be a bit heavy. Starting at 10 pounds doesn't leave a lot of weight left before it is to much. The size of the pack helps with this problem as there is not a lot of room for stuff in the bag. Great storage in the pockets on the outside and this bag is ridiculously tough. I hauled a dall sheep cape, head with horns attached and ribs in one load. I had to stop where the bag easily took the abuse. Way to go badlands, great system.

Do All Pack...

After years of flipping through magazines seeing The Ox Hunting Pack in advertisements & articles by an array of authors,I wanted to see for myself if this pack functioned as great as it looked. In short, it has become the pack that replaced all my other packs. I do own a Superday Hunting Pack which meets all my needs for just that, a day or two in the field. For extended time & when I need to carry everything plus the kitchen sink I haven’t found a pack that comes close in versatility, payload,& most important comfort as the Ox. I’ve only encountered one issue; I’d like to see a stronger more secure way of carrying my bow. The small tethers have failed a couple times.This is the do all pack that would meet any hunter’s needs.

Elk Haulin' Monster

I used this pack for the past 2yrs. to pack out 5 elk and this pack ROCKS! I'm a big guy and had this pack loaded with close to 200lbs. of elk quarters and other gear every time I shot an elk or one of friends did. This pack performed flawlessly and was as comfortable as a pack could be while carring 200lbs. in it. I had been previously using a 2800 series pack, which worked great...but this pack did make the hard part of a hunt...just that much easier. I really can't say enough about this pack. The ONLY thing I can think of that I would like to see on it...is some type of built in rainfly. Hint...hint ;)

One tough pack

Have used the OX for a few seasons now. The frame design/meat hauler is what allows this pack to be so comfortable with 100+lbs on your back. The load is easily 2'' closer to your back than on a typical frame pack, which translates to more weight being transfered to your hips, rather than pulling down into your shoulders. The bag is well designed and makes for efficient packing, rather than a typical single bag top loading pack. The suspension is very nice and easily adjustable to your torso. The first time I was really able to appreciate this pack was carrying a load of caribou meat + camp and gear approx 10 miles back to base camp. The OX made the trip an easy one. You'll be hard pressed to find a better pack than this one.

Great pack

This pack has tons of room. Really great features and storage options and is really comfortable. The only thing it really needs is more adjustment on the belt. I dont think I'll ever need another pack.

BULLET PROOF

After looking at many packs and wondering about durability I found the OX. This pack will easily carry more weight than I am capable of holding up. Even with it stuffed to 70 lbs for a backcountry mule deer hunt, the OX remained comfortable on my back. Once you get your hands on this pack you will never doubt its durability, this thing is built for the long(and heavy) haul.
