User Review: Dana Design Glacier
Design: top loading internal
Number of Pockets: 2 big ones
Max. Load Carried: 50 lbs
Height of Owner: 5'11"
Price Paid: $300
I recently upgraded to the Glacier and have been very pleased. I looked extensively before buying, trying to optimize comfort, weight and capacity and think the load carrying capacity is excellent for the weight. I carried about 50 lbs over pretty flat terrain for four days in Yellowstone and was comfortable the whole time. This past weekend I did a steep canyon with some scrambling and numerous stream crossings and the pack behaved well. The top converts to a comfortable fanny pack using the hip belt. It takes a couple minutes to sort out all the belts and straps, but once you get used to it, it's fairly quick. It's one of the more expensive packs I looked at, but the finish detail is excellent and the design works well. And it's nice to finish a pack trip and not have sore shoulders and hips.
