User Review: Camp Trails Catskill
Design: Warranty on Packs
Number of Pockets: N/A
Price Paid: $180
It was when I knew about nothing about packs. I bought a Camp Trails Catskill that had, like almost every pack, a warranty on it.
This pack was very confortable, and its two compartments and many pockets made it very useful. I was very impressed by the quality of this inexpensive pack.
After two or three of extensive use, the waist belt unsewed and with time became completely separate from the pack. I sent the pack to Johnson Worldwide Canada, manufacturer of Camp Trails and Eureka products for have it repaired.
It is only after 4 months, 20$ of long distance calls, buying of another pack, and so on... that they send me a new one. It was a cheaper model, and smaller one too. For the delay, they gave me a cheap small pack as a bonus. Ridiculous. I keep the new pack in case some non-hiker friend wants to come hiking, anyway I couldn't get more than 60$ for it.
My new pack is a used North Face, I paid 175$ for it, and now I know more about quality.
Buy a Camp Trails if you want to make occasional trips, or if you're student and poor. If your main concern is the quality/price ratio, or even the quality, DON'T BUY A CAMP TRAILS PACK.
