Vapor Trail

rated 5 of 5 stars Best all-around backpack. Took mine on over 2,000 miles of trail (AT and John Muir). Never had any issues, no noticeable wear or tear besides a little waist belt slippage. My base was around 9 lbs (Hennesy Hammock!) so I could carry plenty of food and water and not overload it. There were times when I had at least 30 lbs food and water and it still performed well. Needed a replacement pack after losing it and ended up buying another (used) one on eBay. Not as light as some of the ultralight packs… Full review

Rongbuk 28

rated 4 of 5 stars I like this bag because it is a hybrid day pack. It is great for going on the trail, but if you want to take it into town it is nice to be able to remove the hip straps. Not as breathable as some packs but comfy nonetheless. I am happy with this pack because it has the space I wanted for day tripping in nature as well as pockets meant for city cruising. The mesh pocket on the outside is plenty big and the two mesh water bottle pockets are oversized. The built-in rain fly is a great addition and… Full review

eVent Sil Compression DrySack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Haven't tested it yet, but it's a dry bag. I purchased this Granite Gear compression/dry sack along with my Big Agnes 30 (degree) sleeping bag at the same time. The personnel at the store helped me get the smallest one that would fit the bag, as compactness was my main concern. The size medium Granite Gear sack was the perfect fit for this sleeping bag, although mine says its 18 liters, as opposed to 16. The first time out two of the little knobs came right off in my hand when I was compressing… Full review

Ancho 18

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great lightweight daypack for short hikes; has an internal pocket to hold a hydration bladder, two external side pockets, and a front long zip compartment for easy access. I use this for bike commuting and for short excursions where I don't need any gear. Granite Gear really puts a lot of thought into product development. The side pocket zippers are oriented front-to-back so you can unzip and grab things without taking off the pack. I love this bag. It's lightweight, the color is great, and it's… Full review

Leopard A.C. 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent long trip pack. I recently purchased this item on eBay because I needed a little more pack room for a week long hike and for "winter" backpacking. Used it in March 2016 and I loved it. It's lightweight but had all the extra room I needed for the extra gear I was carrying. I love the fact that its height is adjustable because that is the biggest problem I have in trying to get a good pack since my torso is short. I love the roll down opening and the big stretchy side pockets. The one drawback… Full review
