The 2200 on black ovis is the new and updated one so it is pretty sweet. You can buy older used 2200's at the badlands store with bad zippers and such with no warranty for around $150 which is a smoking deal.
I missed some opps back in the day.. Now they are usually an old model on KSL for $200.
I have looked at Eberlestock a little. What would be comparable to the 2200? I want something for a day, but that can hold emergency kit and allow me to shed layers. I go really deep so it needs to have enough stuff in case I end up stuck, and I need to be able to pack stuff out. Do you have much of a rundown on them?
Here's two I just ran across. I have one and it's one of the most comfortable packs I've had. I bought mine about 6 years ago so I guess I have the old version. So far it's packed out 11 boned out deer and two mountain goats without any problems. It's not "bowhunting-quiet" but it's not too loud.
If you are tall get the badlands 2200 if you're short get the eberlestock x2 I have the eberlestock and love it. I carry food, water, extra layers, first aid, survival kit, kill kit, and a few other odds and ends in it. Me and another guy were able to get all of our gear and my deer out in one trip. He has the badlands 2200.
Don't forget about the Easton line. I have the pickup 3000. So far it has done everything as good as my Eberlestock. I packed out two elk with it this year including an epic one-trip pack-out where I was hauling half of a full grown cow plus gear. Probably around 130 lbs., and it performed flawlessly. Camofire has the Easton Bowhunter up right now for $75. Not sure how this one is hauling meat though. https://www.camofire.com/index.php/Deals/1
