Badlands Monster is a high capacity fanny pack with shoulder straps and hydration system. This package seems to be meant for a hunter that happens throughout the day, but there are some problems with the set-up. The most important is that the maximum size of 35 oz hydration bladder max. In addition to having to carry extra water or a cleanser to refill a small hydration bladder regularly, you may have the hardest hunt to find a hydration bladder small enough to fit. Badlands should at least offer one on their website or have a link to where you can get one.
Another disadvantage of “The Monster” is in the belt. While it is very convenient when it fits, if you waist 32 or smaller, the belt is too big and you can not use the belt to carry the load on the hips. Despite these weaknesses, The Monster has some strong points. It has many external attachment points for additional items and will easily support bedroll for overnight use if needed. Despite the size limitations, it has an excellent belt system and well thought out pockets and compartments. Shoulder straps can be saved if the load does not justify their use. The construction is very durable and of high quality and as with all of the Badlands packages they have no questions asked of a lifetime warranty.
