Astralplane Overkill

rated 5 of 5 stars The Dana Astralplane Overkill is the most durable, comfortable, indestructible load-hauler ever created. Best loadhauler ever made. Indestructible. Bought mine in early '90's and have hiked with it on at least 50 trips and it looks almost brand new. Mine is the Astralplane Overkill, so it is pretty heavy, but I've packed 80 lbs in it and it still fits like a hug.   If you can find one on ebay, buy it — they are legendary.

Astralplane Overkill

rated 5 of 5 stars I lead backpacking trips for my high school students. I've had this pack since 1995 when the capacity was needed to haul my toddler son's gear. I still value the great fit and ride of this pack now as I did when I hauled changes of clothes and teddy bears. Repaired the waist belt (a burn from a campfire spark), but it still looks new after two decades of hard use. You will wear out before this pack does. Great fit and comfortable and can swallow 10 days of food easily. Full review

Far Flung

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Traveled all over the world with this pack. Finally wore it out. Full review

K2 Longbed

rated 5 of 5 stars Once you get over the squeaks, it's fantastic. Rides nice, not on your back, air flow over my back, walk upright, spacious. I'm old-school and never really took to a backpack hugging my back and making me walk hunched over all sweaty. Squeaks and creaks, but it takes a huge load and is comfortable and indestructible.
