Recent Expedition Pack (4,500+ cu in) Reviews

Trigon Deva

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Carries nicely at 50 lbs, and good pockets with the sleeping bag compartment un-zipable to make a continuous space. Well padded harness and shoulder straps. I carried waders, boots, flys and a tent and big pot and stove—90 liters. Full review

Gregory Forester

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought in 2000. Still going strong. Bomb proof durability. One of the best packs I've ever even heard of. Old school Gregory. This thing is amazing. Has held up for working on 20 years now. What more can you ask? And I've had as much as 75+ lbs in it. Yes, the ride gets a little... eh, when she's loaded that heavy. But she was never designed for that, and still takes it like a champ. My go-to for the tough and long ones. Full review

The North Face Snow Leopard Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The North Face Snow Leopard men's internal backpack I picked up in 1986 at EMS Sporting Goods in Pinkham Notch, Gorham, New Hampshire the day before I hiked the Tuckerman Trail. It was $460, and it was the best $460 I ever spent. The backpack is grade A+++++ Nothing less then awesome. It's now 31 years old and the straps are as strong as the first day I tightened them up in the store and in 31 years I have only had to replace two load buckles, the waist/hip buckle and one of the small buckles, and… Full review

JanSport Alaska

rated 4 of 5 stars Great BIG pack. I've had this pack for about twelve years, mostly for day hiking for exercise and camping. The straps feel great and the adjustments are very easy. The hip strap could be a little longer, definitely not for those of us with a bigger belly. If this pack doesn't have the capacity you need, get an RV. There is plenty of room for everything you need to take with you. I carry two tanks of fuel for my stove, a three-piece cook set, a bivy tent, sleeping bag, large tent pegs, water purifier,… Full review

Dana Design Astralplane Overkill

rated 5 of 5 stars Can haul heavy loads great, fits well and lots of adjustment, side and top access. I have had 130 pounds in mine, still looks new. Love this pack. I have a few others, but this is my go-to pack and it will haul heavy loads well. Had it on 5 trips in at 68 pounds and out at 110-130 pounds. Most packs don't hold up to this kind of use. Mine still looks brand new. Full review

REI New Star

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The performance of this pack has been unbelievable. Durable, comfortable, versatile...it was 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 2,000 miles on it. Full review

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
