User Review: ALPS Mountaineering Cascade 5200
Price Paid: $119
Picked up the 4200 for my wife and the 5200 for myself. After a couple multi-day hikes, we can honestly say that these are some of the most comfortable packs we have tried to date.
The 5200 carried 45 lbs. with ease. Good padding on the shoulder straps and easy to adjust to fit. The hip belt pads were wide and road well even after 5 plus miles. About the only complaint was the lack of attachment points on the bottom of the pack.
Overall for the price it's a great pack.
