Our core Series

recon

We went back and forth on the name of this new pack; so many times, it was a bit ridiculous. It started as "The Bobcat" then "Wildcat" along with about thirty other species. We just thought the words, nimble, light and lethal described both Feline and this pack, incredibly well. Not to mention, they both love trees and are content to wait for their prey for hours. However, truth be known, we are Dog people around here. Besides, this bag is so much more. With its incredible lack of weight, the Recon allows you the mobility to scout all day - through the most unreasonable terrain you can find. Providing you the best of all worlds is really what this pack is about.

Awesome!

I received the Recon in early September,just prior to school.(5th grade)What a treat! All of my school and hunting supplies fit in perfectly. Great for smaller torsos (I am under 5ft tall) planning on bringing on a scouting trip with all of my gear. Looking forward to hunting season this fall!

The Perfect Choice

I hunt in the woods and on the hills in Western NY and this pack is perfect for carrying all my gear and being ready for any weather from early October right through December. I also use it to carry my electronics and tools when I'm hiking through the woods checking trail cameras. Extremely rugged and versatile. I couldn't be happier.

Great Pack

This is my go-to pack for run and gun. Literally. I started training and getting into better shape by loading this pack up and heading out to run dirt roads and "hike" what hills Eastern South Dakota has to offer. The pack stays close your body even without using the hidden waist straps. Also loaded it up with all my treestand stuff and hung a couple new stands and it works great even in the trees. Looking forward to putting it to good use this fall on my antelope and deer hunts.

its pretty good

I used this on the mule deer hunt here in utah and i loved this pack to death. Its so freaking versatile and comfortable. I loaded it with 30 lbs of stuff and it handled it perfectly. I hooked our families spotting scope and tripod on and it held them with out me worrying about them getting damaged and lost. Thanks a ton badlands! I owe you guys big time!
