Air Compressor

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Granite Gear medium Air Compressor is a nice lightweight alternative to the slightly heavier duty "Rock Solid" compression sack. It holds its own and has added features that increase its durability. The sack allows you to compress down to the strap limit without the fear of ripping at the seams. I have the older model with 4 nylon webbing straps. The newer model uses 4 paracord strings. The sack is easy to use. You just stuff, cinch the hole, pull the lid over the top and wrench down on the… Full review

Nimbus Trace Access 70

rated 5 of 5 stars I own a few backpacks...and this has become my go-to pack. Plenty of straps that can be used to attach your tent, poles, or a rain jacket outside. Front panel access lets you get inside without opening the top. The wood frame is top notch with well placed adjustments. I picked this pack up for $207 plus free shipping. I gave this pack a 5 out of 5 because I do own a few packs, and this one fits right @ 70 liters for trips that are more then 3 to 7 nights. I can take a few extra things like a chair… Full review

Lutsen 55

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I liked the adjustability of the torso and hip belt and the way the frame curves out from the lumbar area to provide ventilation. I’ve been looking for a new pack since my old one is starting to show signs of wear and tear. I had to opportunity to test the Granite Gear Lutsen 55, a new offering from Granite Gear. I was looking for a pack that weighed less than 3 lbs and this one was just over the mark at 3.1 lbs. There were a few features that I really liked. One thing I liked is the way the back… Full review

Air Zippditty

rated 5 of 5 stars Convenient bags for staying organized! I love the different colors for color-coding. Bags made of Sil nylon with waterproof zippers will protect the contents for hiking or backpacking. Thanks to the other Trailspace review, I ordered a set of the 1L and 2.4L Zippditty. Wow! I can only think how much more organized I can be on my next hike or backpacking trip. The 2.4L size promises to be especially useful for stowing gloves, a hat, various small cords (used in rigging my tarp), etc. The 1L seems… Full review

Blaze AC 60

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight roomy pack for weekend to weeklong use. Comfortable. Simple design. I bought this in my quest to reduce overall pack weight. In the last year, it has proven tough, comfortable, and once I changed my packing procedure to fit this style, it has proven very trail-worthy. I have two packs, this one and a larger Deuter that I've used for about 7 years. I increasingly reach for the Blaze these days. Unlike most of the backpacks I have owned, this style has no separate bottom compartment, or… Full review
