User Review: GoLite Women's Pinnacle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $100
Great light pack, no frills.
- Side straps
- Great volume
- Top loading only
- Not waterproof
- Hip belt doesn't adjust enough
I've been using this backpack for the past 2-3 years mostly for backpacking but also for some day hikes (it's definitely light enough to do that). I'm 5'1" and about 100 lbs and use a women's medium. While the shoulder and chest straps adjustments work well for me, I do wish the belt would go a little more narrow.
My biggest pet peeve is that I have to unpack any big stuff (eg bear canister or sleeping bag) and that involves taking everything out of the top loading backpack to fit a full 3 L Platypus in. It's annoying but everything does fit in the end, and if it doesn't fit: that's what those side straps are for.
Aside from those gripes, the backpack has stood up very well to three-season hiking without a snag: rain, scrambling, sliding down some rocks, even some snow. I do put everything inside into a big garbage bag though.
