Osprey Comet

rated 5 of 5 stars A great daypack, as well made and designed as any I have ever owned. I love this pack. Was trying to replace a 2011 Mountain Hardwear Enterprise, and I originally ordered the 2014 Enterprise. I immediately returned it. A piece of crap; gone were the padded shoulder straps and back panell, the organization pockets, and quilted laptop pocket. The fabric was cheap. I ended up getting the Comet on sale from EMS and it was a great decision. Padded straps and back panel, padded laptop pocket, organization… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 OutDry

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Solid build, but the waterproofing is a gimick. Overall I think this is a decent day pack for scrambles and hiking. I tested this out.  The side pockets are adequate, the material is very solid, and I found the fit to be adequate, but not superb. The lack of a decent hipbelt was off-putting, especially for a 30L pack. For me that rules it out of being useful as a crag pack, or for heavier hauls, which the burely material suggests it can handle well.  The pack is advertised as waterproof. An OutDry… Full review

Osprey Daylite

rated 5 of 5 stars I used a larger Osprey to hike across Spain. This lighter, compact pack is perfect for biking my 20-mile commute to work each day. I use it on day hikes and as a lightweight purse for events, concerts, kayaking, picnics. The two major compartment keep clothing and snacks. There is small zippered pocket at top for keys, ID, etc. Mesh pockets on side hold water bottles easily. It has a hydration compartment. I will be using this to hike Mt Whitney. Perfect for my applications. Full review

L.L.Bean Mountainside Backpack

rated 5 of 5 stars Very durable. Well designed and comfortable to carry. Very versatile and practical. Never had a problem with it. I love this backpack. It holds enough gear and is the right shape to wear on your shoulders. Good design. Has chest and hip straps for a secure and comfortable carry. Has just the right capacity for what I need. I take this pack on mountain climbing trips for the day or overnights. Rain has no effect on it and it keeps things dry.  Well made with tough stitching. Light enough for day… Full review

Osprey Stratos 24

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I like this pack very well. I take it with me everywhere. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a durable and functional pack. I got this pack to replace my old Walmart day pack. I got it in March and have hiked with it several times. the thing that I like most is that I can load it to its limit and it doesn't feel awkward, it just feels like part of me. When I have to get another pack it will most likely be an Osprey, it just fits SO well. I use it most for long day trips and it holds… Full review

Osprey Talon 22

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pack is a perfect size for day hikes; snacks, jackets, and extra water all fit nicely. The stretch pocket on the outside is great for holding maps and any other quick access needs. The hip strap with pockets also makes for a secure fit with easy access to smaller necessities. The easy adjustment straps etc. also make it a snap for either my husband or I to wear comfortably. Fit: This pack fits both me and my husband, though it is a bit large for my torso. (I am 5'7" and my husband is 5'11")… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 OutDry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30 OutDry is a great little backpack that is 100% waterproof. I do a lot of canoeing and try to keep the number of packs to a minimum, so I usually take one large canoe pack and a food barrel. However I also like to take a smaller 'day-pack' along for side hikes and so I can access smaller items without opening up the big canoe pack. Up until now I have not been able to find a good waterproof daypack, but recently I came across the Mountain Hardwear SCRAMBLER 30 (for… Full review

Osprey Daylite

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a very lightweight pack, easily adjustable for either of the two us of, who are of very different sizes! Best used for short day hikes or winter activities in which a large capacity pack is not required. This little day pack weighs barely a pound, yet has served us well as a second pack for day hikes. It is very durable, comes in a variety of colors, and has nice features that project it a bit past other basic "sack" day packs I have had. The capacity is a bit small for me to use it as my… Full review

The North Face Men's Recon

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a versatile high quality pack that will take all the abuse you can throw at it. I don't have enough good things to say about this pack. I use this primarily for my everyday carry needs, but I do intend to test it out on the trail as well. Let's start with the quality of the pack. This pack is very solidly built. All of the zippers are very functional and solid. I wouldn't ask for better clips for the compression straps. They are sturdy and strong.   The pack has a very solid back panel. Full review
