"Badlands Monster vs Tenzing 1250"

Figured i would do a short review on the Badlands Monster and Tenzing 1250 lumbar (fanny) packs with shoulder straps.

Couldnt decide between the two, so i bought both and sold the one i liked better.

Both packs are really nice and both are very pricey.

Badlands:

PROS
Very heavy duty, good quality, heavy duty straps.
Excellent customer service
thick rigid padding around waist belt
pretty ligth

CONS
not much padding on shoulder straps
Only a single strap connects main pack area and shoulder straps
No accessory clips on straps
side pockets on the small side
unique bladder setup

Tenzing 1250
PROS
Very comfortable pack
Has 3-4 straps supporting pack area *probably better for strapping very large loads to it (like an elk quarter for first hauls)
Has build in strap hiders
Has bow/gun holder
Has rain guard
More pockets
Straps on top and bottom of pack
Better bladder setup

CONS
Straps not very heavy duty
side pockets on the small side
a little pricey
a little on the heavy side

I have always been a badlands guy, but I actually went with the tenzing even though it was a little more money and the straps were not as heavy duty. It fit me better and had more of the features i wanted. Both packs are very nice though.

It is going to be nice to have a pack off of my high back area.
