REI 65L REI youth backpack

rated 4 of 5 stars Great youth pack with lots of room. My daughter lives it. I bought this pack for my youngest daughter. The sales staff at REI was spot on as usual. They fitted her took the time to show her all the balls and whisles. The pack has great external pockets. And the hood converts into a day pack. Easy to adjust sholder straps and hip belt. We went to south mountain state park with my boy scout troop. The pack served her very well. And we can't wait to do it again. Full review

REI New Star

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The performance of this pack has been unbelievable. Durable, comfortable, versatile...it was a great. I bought this pack in 1994.  Anyone have an older one?  Mine, I must say, is worn out.  It has been a great friend and I am a little sad that I need to replace it.  I believe that I easily put 2000 miles on it.

Lowe Alpine Contour IV 90+15

rated 4 of 5 stars Solid VERY large pack. Great for extended use or winter camping/hiking. I picked my pack up from a buddy for 25 bucks used about 10 years ago. GREAT deal. I'm a bigger guy and was looking for a large pack for extended trips and winter camping/packing. This pack is very well made and is constructed of a heavier nylon Cordura. Great in that it is tear-proof and holds up, but it makes it a little heavy by today's standards. The pack is designed for a larger person. I'm 6'1" 250# and I have no trouble… Full review

Gregory Denali 100

rated 2.5 of 5 stars OK pack, but not for the heaviest loads and longer trips due to some weak parts of the carrying system (described below) and too small volume, narrow bottom, and side pockets. In wintertime when carrying a bigger sleeping bag and generally more equipment this pack will, in my opinion, be too small for more than a couple of days outdoors. I bought this pack summer 2015. Used it on some weekend trips in forest regions and one 17-day trip tenting in the mountains. What I don't like is the narrow bottom… Full review

Mountainsmith Apex 100

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a comfortable, huge capacity, well-designed, well-constructed freighter. I was looking for a lighter replacement for my Gregory Rainier, and the Apex 100, which weighs about 3lbs less, fit the bill. The suspension is comfortable with loads up to 60 lbs (most I've carried in it), and extremely easy to adjust, even in the field. The main compartment is  cavernous, easily swallowing camera gear in its own daypack, along with clothes, food, tent, sleeping bag, pad, cook kit, and fuel—4… Full review

Deuter Aircontact 75+10

rated 5 of 5 stars Awesome pack! This shares with my Kelty 75 the honor of being the best pack I have ever carried. Bear in mind that I have owned and carried a vast number of packs, so that is saying something.   Now I have not carried loads north of maybe 35 pounds in this pack, but this pack is designed for much more. The maker designates this as an "expedition" pack, whatever they may mean by that. The sleeve gives another 10 liters and both measurements seem accurate. The design is sophisticated and can hardly… Full review

Lowe Alpine Contour IV 90+15

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great price, tough pack. I am a big guy and long waisted to boot. I wanted a big pack when I got back into backpacking and this is the one I bought new (I picked up a second at Goodwill for less than $4). My older three-season sleeping bag is a synthetic fill and it is bulky, as is much of my older gear. The suspension is well designed, the waist belt is wide and comfortable, it rides about as well as any pack this size could. The lumbar pad is awesomely thick and comfy. But...this is more pack… Full review

Gregory UM21 Backpack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Still relevant. Do you abuse gear? Do you hike off-trail, through brush, over rocks and don't want to worry about a branch tearing a hole in the latest, lightest and most expensive nano-fabric? Have you passed through the ultralight gear stage and want a pack (or in addition to UL) that lasts longer than two seasons and doesn't require kid gloves treatment?  Do you really like straps? If yes to any or all of those then this may be the pack for you. Fit: Tons of adjustment to fit almost any body… Full review
