User Review: GoLite Men's Pinnacle
Design: top loading
Number of Pockets: two side pockets, one front
Height of Owner: 5' 9"
Price Paid: $80
I owned and used the Golite Speed before purchasing the Pinnacle, and I loved it too, but I think the Pinnacle is better designed and fits me better. It also seems to have a stiffer backpad and thus transfers the weight to the hips better than the pack.
I recently used it on a three day backpack trip into Dominguez Canyon in Colorado, loaded with 25 lbs. and it performed above my expectations. I also like that fact that Golite retained the side pockets for water bottles and other sundry items that you need to get to quickly like cameras etc. The pockets are easily accessible without having to take the pack off to get to them.
This pack has now become my "don't leave home without it" pack. My daughter has also used it and loves it, so she'll be getting one soon.
