Hunters beware: there's a new pack on the market, and it's the cream of the crop... especially when you consider the price you can get it for. There are a lot of features crammed into the Traverse. For starters, let's talk about its modular design. It can hold your bow or gun in the expandable pocket. It can haul out meat, decoys, or extra gear in the "hauling mode." It has a pocket designed specifically for carrying and protecting your spotting scope. In addition to all these great features, it has 2 easy access pockets on the waist belt, a large main compartment, a side pocket, internal pocket, and 2 front wing pockets. If you still need room, there are side compression straps to attach even more gear. The Traverse has a top-of-the-line "H" frame design and multi-layer foam waist belt with a PE outer layer that will make the perfect combination to carrying heavy loads comfortably. Add in the adjustable torso range and this pack has the suspension system every hunter seeks when hauling out an animal or other heavy loads. The unique "H" frame design is made of strong, but lightweight, tubular aluminum. For a pack, the key to carrying weight comfortably is to have a strong frame and a rock-solid, adjustable suspension, and that's exactly what the Traverse has, making it one of the most advanced internal-frame packs in the industry.

PROS: Price, Size, Range of adjustment, Rain Fly, Padding on the waist belt and back
CONS: Shoulder straps!! They need a lot more padding and possibly need to be wider if your going to carry heavier loads. With a heavier load they cut into your shoulders terribly. Sliding chest strap is a great idea but needs some more development. The strap seems to always slide up to your neck or wants to pop off of its rail. Lack of pockets to organize your gear. The spotting scope pocket is also a great idea but would be better if there was a pocket of the same size on the other side of the pack so you could even out the weight. (a Swaroski 80 will not totally fit inside the pouch)
Overview: Overall for the money this pack is hard to beat! With a few adjustment this pack could be exceptional! PS we gave it 4 stars cause we couldn't give it 3 1/2
I contacted their customer service and they replied quickly. They requested a pic of a couple specific things and they are sending me a replacement. I am very happy with their customer service and how the company stands behind their products. With that said if you are hunting larger animals the meat hauling compartment is not large enough to hold full rear quarters. So be prepared to either debone or cut rear quarters in half in order to fit them in the compartment.
Only complaint is I weigh my pack down at times and the chest strap couldn't take the load. Now I use the extra buckle straps included in its place and will continue to do so.
Comfortable, durable, and man can you load it up with all but the kitchen sink and if you need that the extra straps will do it.
I'll use this pack until I can't anymore and that's nowhere in the near future as far as I can tell.
When I went to attach my bow it was a huge pain in the butt, as my stabilizer didn’t allow it to fit very good, but I managed to get it in somewhat. I run a fairly large stabilizer, but even a shorter one would still give me issues. There were also clearance issues with my sight. I have a tommy hogg and it apparently sticks out too far to get the wings around as well. When I pulled the cinch on the wing packs to fully secure my bow one of the buckles kept popping lose. I still tried to convince myself that I liked it, but knew in my mind it wasn’t right.
I went ahead and used it, and it was pretty comfortable. I ended up hiking 9 miles in it. Never did get a chance to use the expandable compartment, so I can’t attest to that, but like other reviews, I can’t see a bone-in elk quarter fitting, unless it’s a smaller animal. I did notice the zipper pulling apart on the extension as well, but this might have been my fault in not getting the zipper properly lined up when zipping the compartment shut.
My main gripe is the fact that I used it once, only for 9 miles, with about 20lbs. and the sleeve the H-frame is pocketed in has started to tear. It’s torn on 3 of the four main points of the frame, and considerably worn at the fourth. Not sure how it would function if it breaks lose from the frame, and not waiting to find out. I think overall the construction is awesome, and yes it’s heavy unloaded, I just feel that this particular pack has a design flaw in the material used around the H-frame. If it were the same material used on the rest of the bag I doubt it would be an issue. The rest of the material is heavy duty...point in case the 7lbs. empty.
Although the price is right I honestly feel you should spend a little extra and go for something else. Remember, I never really got to use the bag what it was designed to do, and never really “loaded” it up, and it failed. I’m not totally writing off alps outdoorz, as I’ll probably replace with the commander extreme. Hope this review helps.
