User Review: GoLite Men's Pinnacle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $110
Good pack for UL backpacking.
- simple construction
- uncomfortable if not packed with extra care
Tons of room in this pack. This is a frameless pack and for the neophyte it takes time to learn how to be comfortable. I'm still learning... I wouldn't recommend a load more than 30-35 lbs.
The ice axe loops can be useful, and I love the way you can reduce the pack size using the bottom loops and hooks. Love the pockets on the waist belt too.
Being lightweight, it is also a a fragile pack. After a year of light use, the seam of the top closure strap is weakened and needs repair before it rips off.
I'm 5'8" and slim, and the medium size feels like it's too small for me. I always have to loosen the shoulder straps almost to the max, and even then the waist belt is too high.
