CiloGear 75L W/NWD WorkSack

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The most horrible backpack ever!! Hello, Cilogear team, I tested your most expensive bag in the Himalayas on an expedition to Ama dablam for one month. This bag is the most uncomfortable bag I have worn in my mountaineering career. I wonder if you have field tested it? The shoulder straps bit into my shoulders and caused the blood supply to stop to my hands. It's in fact a dangerous bag and can lead to accidents on the mountain. I am sending you the video soon. I spent lot of money on this and could… Full review

Gregory Baltoro 75 GZ

rated 4.5 of 5 stars What's not to like?! A reputable solar charger, conveniently built-in to the top lid of an already proven trail-worthy backpack! Separately, both Gregory and Goal Zero are reliable, durable, and functional. Together, they are a distance hiker's match made in heaven. No muss, no fuss...drop the pull-down lid of the neatly integrated Goal Zero and the solar panels convert the sun's rays to stored or usable energy. I already own and enjoy Gregory backpacks, so when I learned of the Baltoro GZ 75 collaborative...I… Full review

Arc'teryx Bora 80

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pack is the best. I bought mine ten years ago and use it a lot and it has never let me down. Its one problem is that it isn't waterproof and doesn't come with a rain cover because it is supposed to be waterproof. In my opinion the pros of this pack outweigh this one issue. I've had this bag now for ten years. It's the best! I traveled for work in northern BC and Alberta for a few years using it as my main bag, hiked with it on multi-day jungle treks, day hikes in BC, had it strapped to the… Full review

CiloGear 75L W/NWD WorkSack

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Horrible, painful, uncomfortable, miserable! I have tested expensive bag 75L W/NWD bag $1500 in the Himalayas on an expedition to Ama Dablam for 1 month. This bag is the most uncomfortable bag I have worn in my mountaineering career. I wonder if you have field tested it? The shoulder straps bit into my shoulder, causing intense pain and caused the blood supply to stop to my hands. It's in fact a dangerous bag and can lead to accidents on the mountain. I covered more than 80 miles with this backpack,… Full review

JanSport Alaska 115

rated 5 of 5 stars Great heavy duty pack. Perfect for heavy loads/hunting big game. It fits more weight than you can carry. I love this pack. I have about a thousand miles on it. It fits elk quarters perfectly, and I would buy another in a heartbeat if I could find one, as it is starting to show wear. The buckle finally broke with a 200+ pound load of meat last season, and the waterproofing is all but gone on the inside. This is a TOUGH pack. Zippers still going strong. I acquired it at a garage sale about 15 years… Full review

Osprey Volt 75

rated 4 of 5 stars Good pack for 2-5 day trips, good storage, good construction. Fit: Easy to adjust to my body type. I'm "that athletic guy", 5'10" 165 lbs. Comfort: When the pack is fitted properly it helps me stand with pretty good posture (although leaning forward a little), and that helps out a lot for longer trips because my back feels fine. The hip belt is OK and does wrap around my hips, but after a while doesn't feel that great. Because I have a fairly trim figure I don't have a lot of cushion on my hips,… Full review

ULA Equipment Catalyst

rated 5 of 5 stars The ULA Catalyst is a very sturdy pack for thru hikes and daily hikes. The pack is very lightweight and roomy. ULA has made a very great pack that is made for men, women, and children. The Catalyst fits like a glove. It adjusts very easily by pulling on the strap adjusters. The Catalyst is a very deep bag. It has a inside compartment that takes all your gear. The hipbelt is completely adjustable and replaceable if you need to go from Small to Large to Extra large. The water bottle holder on the… Full review

Lowe Alpine Contour IV 90+15

rated 4 of 5 stars It is a very large and tough backpack. I've backed it with heavy loads and it tackles it pretty easily. This pack is a beast! I have literally drug and threw this pack around and it has not ripped or been damaged. I bought it in an auction, two years ago, for about $15.  I would pay a lot more for a pack like this. Even though it was used it works great and is very durable. I love the compression straps that allow you to adjust for different size loads. Because it is so big you should at least… Full review

The North Face Renegade

rated 5 of 5 stars Hiked 88 miles at Philmont Scout Ranch with this pack in 2016. It is simply an awesome pack, tons of room, very flexible and received many comments from hikers that recognized my "vintage" pack. Going back to Philmont with my son in 2017 and taking the Renegade with me. Buy one if you can find one on the web. They are hard to find and sell very quickly on eBay and gear trade. One of the best packs that North Face has ever made. Awesome design, plenty of room, "vintage" looks, and very comfortable… Full review
