I have a Badlands 2200 and I love it, but I was thinking of getting the Hypervent for my early season blacktail hunts. The 2200 gets a little hot on the back in August. Does anyone know if you could fit a boned out deer or antelope into the Hypervent? Most of my hunts are walk in day trips so I am looking to go as light as possible for the backpack. Should I maybe look at some different brands?

Yup. My buddy hauled one out of the Rubies when he and I went in last year. Mind you, it was boned out, with the head and hide lashed to the out side.

I have used the Hypervent a couple times and for me it was too small to pack meat and gear. One of my long time hunting partners has the 2200 and I think that is a better bag for packing meat after hunting all day. I'm not saying that one couldn't put a boned out blacktail or antelope in a Hypervent, it would just be a tighter fit than I would want with my hunting gear in it as well.
