Mountain Hardwear Scrambler 30

rated 3 of 5 stars This backpack wasn't bad. It wasn't my favourite, but I also didn't hate it either. Great pack for wet hiking conditions, a winter snowshoe hike, or an all weather commuter. As I mentioned in the summary, I don't dislike this pack. But I was also happy to return to use my old faithful. Though the waterproofing is great, and I wish my other pack was waterproof. I took this bag on two solid day hikes of waterfalling and a canoe trip and one thing is for sure — the main compartment is definitely… Full review

Deuter Futura 32

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack! Very comfortable and functional. My back stayed pretty dry, despite some warm conditions on long day hikes in the Grand Canyon, recently. Purchased this pack recently to use on some long day hikes, with a few overnighters on occasion. I just came back from a week of camping at the Grand Canyon, with some long day hikes taken every day. Each day I packed a full hydration bladder, a liter of Gatorade, snacks, first aid kit, and a light jacket. Everything fit perfectly, though when the… Full review

Columbia Vixen 22L

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, comfortable day pack designed for women. Ample pockets for water bottles, poles, camera etc. on side, top, and back of pack as well as the waist belt. Love that load is kept off the back! Pack is extremely comfortable, even with a full load. Accommodates a bladder inside or water bottles on sides of pack. Zippered top pouch and two pouches on the belt. Great overall day pack. Full review

Salomon Trail 20

rated 2 of 5 stars Though personal, I think it can be said this pack has poor fit. Even if tightened down it will bounce. Does not carry the weight well. This is a nice enough pack. Pretty solidly constructed, OK capacity for bigger unsupported runs, or smaller fast packing ventures. But where it counts most this pack fails to deliver — it is uncomfortable when loaded with any amount of weight that matches its volume. Fit/Comfort: The fit seems nice enough, until you load it up with a bit more than just your wind… Full review

Montane Dragon 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Finally a small pack that fits like a race vest. Super comfortable, carries the weight really well. Probably warm in height of summer, bladder compartment too small. This is a great small pack with an even greater fitting race vest fit. It carries so well you hardly notice the weight — until you take the pack off and realise that you have 5-6Kg in there.  Fit/Comfort: This is where this packs shines. There is a big elastic velcro strap and a higher 'sternum' strap that keep the pack glued to… Full review

Hanchor PIPE-T1

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The bag is incredibly tough and hard wearing by any standard. It's another testament of Hanchors' commitment to make quality products that are built to last. Primarily designed as a nifty day pack, it's proven itself to be tough as the city I live in (NY) and suitable for many different uses. If you're like me, you'll have a number of backpacks floating around your home, all with different purposes. One for your rope, one for the work commute, one for multi-pitch, another for the gym. The list is… Full review

Deuter Futura 30 SL

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent pack. I was looking for a good pack to hike with and wanted something that would take all the weight off my shoulders and this pack does just that! I tried on several of the top brands but could feel shoulder strap pressure, this one converted all the weight to my legs — perfect.   The construction is impeccable, with quality zippers, cord lock and adjustment straps. I constantly over stuff the side bellows with no problems. I have not experienced any problems with the hydration system… Full review

The North Face Men's Recon

rated 5 of 5 stars I think you could, if you planned carefully, use this pack as a weekender. If you had one of those new crush-able mats, and a very small tent, bivy or tarp. The only limitation I see would be carrying enough water. Unless you hike near water and have a filter. I recommend this pack. If you run into one for sale, buy it. You won't be sorry. I have owned my Recon for about 6 years. It has been to 14k and slightly more. I've hiked in Colorado, New Mexico, California, Oregon, and Washington. Here in… Full review

Gregory Z30

rated 4 of 5 stars As with other Gregory packs, this one is well-designed and offers every feature I could imagine one would need in a daypack. That said, it could be tougher. Skinny hikers that have a medium build may also have trouble cinching the chest and waist tight enough. Gregory makes great packs. That's why they are, by now, a household name within backpacking and hiking circles. For a daypack, this gear provides plenty of features and a comfortable fit. Just make sure that you don't play too rough! The shoulder… Full review
