Jack Wolfskin Trail Head II

rated 4 of 5 stars Love the pack. A friend found it for me and I've been using it every day for many months. The two top zippers finally broke, but the rest is in top shape. I've been homeless for 2 years and this is the best pack yet. It is very comfortable, even when I have over 50 lbs. in it, which is quite often. Full review

Deuter Aircontact 75+10

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great expedition backpack. Works exceptionally well under heavy weight for long distances. Pack is very adjustable, giving me the confidence to carry a heavy load and navigate over tricky mountain terrain. Very good construction and materials, creating a durable and strong pack. Looks good. After research on the Deuter Aircontact 75+10 and discussion with others on the mountains. I made the purchase last fall and have come to love this backpack and give it monumental trust. I noticed a prevailing… Full review

Cerro Torre Kodiak

rated 5 of 5 stars Tough as nails. I have had this pack for about 11 to 12 years, and it has been out in the snow for ski backpacking several years, camping in Florida, Oregon, Washington, Appalachian Trail, simple car camping, backpacking—you name it. This thing looks brand new. It's been beat, rained on, blizzarded on, sweated to death in humidity, used probably 60 days a year for 11-12 years. AMAZING PRODUCT. Even the clips were easily repaired if they got smashed in airports. I can't even say more than what… Full review

Gregory Baltoro 85

rated 5 of 5 stars Comes with pack: rain fly, small hydration pack, and waterproof phone compartment. Fit is great. Call Gregory, the company people are nice and easy to work with. The 85 is very comfortable to carry. Lots of room, but not so much that you will be bring too much gear. The pack can be top loaded and you can get to the main compartment from the front. Compression is very good. It has straps all over and this makes it easy for compressing the pack. Zippers work easy. Only just purchased this pack. Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Red Tail 4900

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lots of storage and comfortable when loaded down. This is for the 4900 model. I've only had this pack for about five weeks now, but I've had it out about eight times in the wilderness. I bought it mainly for canoe camping, the large size can fit all of my gear, to cut down on the number of trips I must make on a portage. I haven't tried wearing the pack and carrying  the canoe at the same time, but I think I could do it if I dropped the kitchen sink from my inventory. This is the first internal… Full review

The North Face Snow Leopard Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had this pack since 1988. It has completed the AT, the Vermont Long Trail, the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier including a summit of Rainier, and it has seen every inch of around 400 miles of trail and summit in the Catskill Mountains of N.Y. To this day, it has never torn, zippers have not broken, stays have stayed true to my body. It is still (other than the clear faded colors) as good as new. Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Quadrant 4900

rated 5 of 5 stars A solid pack for the extended trip. Plenty of space with accessible pockets and an easy to get to rainfly make this a good pack. I have been using this pack for the better part of two years, and we go camping about once a month (weekends) and one week-long trip in the summer and one-week long trip in the winter. I have reduced my load considerably and the pack continues to deliver.   It is easy to wear, easily adjustable. I’m 6'4" and have found this to fit me nicely where other packs ride too… Full review

Kelty Redcloud 110

rated 4 of 5 stars Bought this pack for my 14 yo (6' 2") son for a one-week leadership wilderness training. He loves the weight distribution, spaciousness. Neither of us could figure out how to attach carry the detachable fanny pack, no instructions. So he brought an old one for day use as needed. Also few places to attach carabiner within handy reach for water, compass, etc.  Otherwise this is a great, well built, high quality piece of equipment. Full review

Osprey Xena 85

rated 5 of 5 stars Solid, heavy-duty, high-capacity pack, with thick, comfortable padding, great for any longer backpacking or mountaineering trips. This pack is a beast — it's built to last! Highly adjustable back fits your spine length perfectly. True to Osprey packs, this packs offers a solid and comfortable frame. I've found the padding on the hip and shoulder pads to be much thicker than my old Osprey Aura 65 (bought in 2007, retired in 2015). I tested the Xena 85 recently on a 4-day, 28mi. backpacking trip… Full review
