    I don't know much about backpacks, but after a little searching online I bought one to replace my hunting backpack that is worn out.

    I didn't want to spend much money as I don't hike in the wilderness for days. I just need something to help me organize my gear for day in the woods.

    I bought a Gelindo for $33.00. I used my wife's Amazon account and used a credit on her balance so the bag cost me $15.00. You get quite a lot for not much money. It is covered with mollie, has an insulated compartment for a hydration water bag system or keeping food cold or hot.

    It has a midja (edited the mistake) belt as well with more compartments. I watch some youtube reviews and they were very positive.

    I think I can attach my rattlin' antlers to the mollie and that keeps them out the way. They tangle up on everything in my old bag.

    Overall I think this will be great. It might not last the rest of my life but for $33 bucks it will do. 1b1e4ddacd1e.jpg ad5d66569528.jpg

    A “waste” belt. Bringing “pack it out” to new levels, most leave-no-tracers just poop in a baggie.

    That does look like a decent pack, that belt is overbuilt for that bag, but that’s not a bad thing.

    Looks to me a lot like a Maxpedition. A lot of the knockoffs are just as efficient as the name brand packs, just made out of cheaper components. But they work well. I have a Fieldline knockoff of the Maxpedition Sitka sling pack. It has held up well, and is maybe a third of the price.

    I think the waist strap is overkill but it will certainly add stability!
