Cerro Torre Gecko 65L
Price Paid: $199.99
This is the greatest pack ever for the price but they don't seem to be in business anymore. A shame. I have a back problem and this pack with its waist belt is the most comfortable pack I have ever used. I have had it on 5 day trips with no back discomfort whatsoever.
It has plenty of room, zippers are good and chunky, not a lot of extra useless stuff! I wish we could find another!
Number of Pockets: lots
Max. Load Carried: 35 lbs
Height of Owner: 6 ft
Price Paid: Can't remember? Not much!
For an average hiker/camper/trekker like myself this product is perfect. Lots of storage, with that said lots of access to the storage. Strong zippers and its easy to disperse weight.
For myself 5 out of 5.

Here's what other sites are saying:
A multi-feature pack for multi-day hikes, the Gecko is a sweetheart pack for the person planning a three-night trip on a one-night budget. Gecko's anatomic shoulder straps adjust easily (and separately) for varying torso lengths, making the pack suitable for more than one user. Side mesh pockets are great for smaller items such as a water bottles (sold separately), energy bars, compass or GPS unit. A pair of backcountry or alpine skis strap on easily with the side panel ski loops. Internal compartment holds hydration reservoir (sold separately) for hands-free drinking on the trail. Large main compartment is accessible through the drawer-string top or more conveniently via full-length, heavy-duty zippers on each side. The Gecko features a separate sleeping bag compartment with zip entry below the main compartment. A-slanted hipbelt conforms to the hip and helps transfer the loads onto your skeleton. The front pocket is an organizer for pens, keys, maps; large enough for a notebook. Multi-flex foam/spandex back panel wicks away moisture; centerline panel promotes ventilation. The concave panel at the top of the pack fits the back of the head. Two daisy chains provide exterior storage for light items; dual compression straps on each side stabilize the total load. Overstock.
