Recent Internal Frame Backpack Reviews

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Southwest

rated 5 of 5 stars Ultralight, tough, surprisingly comfortable and versatile pack. A real winner. I've always had pretty high-tech backpacks. My original internal frame backpack was an Osprey Zenith, loaded with bells and whistles. From that 7 lb behemoth which served me well, I eventually ended up with an Osprey Aether (the original model), which at about 4 lbs, served me well on a thru-hike of the JMT. I thought I was doing pretty well getting my pack weight down to about 34 lbs for a six-day trip. I realized there… Full review

Gregory Amber 44

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A really comfortable pack for women with the right size. I am 60 years old and so I don't want a really heavy pack and this suits me fine for up to 40 pounds on the trail.The medium size holds 46 litres of volume, which is plenty if you pack light. I use it for carry on as well, also included rain cover seals the deal. I dislike fancy expensive packs that leave a rain cover as an option. No pack is fully waterproof. I will not pay extra for this option. It is a necessity not a luxury. If you want… Full review

Osprey Aether 60

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a comfortable, fully adjustable, reasonable weight pack for light backpacking. 60L is a fairly tight fit, but enough room if you pack wisely. Not much to complain about with this pack. I use it for overnight hikes and winter snowshoe trips to shelters. It holds just enough gear without anything outside. And if pressed I'm sure I could pack more. It's extremely comfortable and I often forget I'm wearing it. I've never used the removable top as a waist belt and feel it's a somewhat useless… Full review

Six Moon Designs Fusion 50

rated 4.5 of 5 stars FINALLY, the pack I've been looking for! Lightweight, but tough and can carry everything needed for 3-5 days...and a little more. Just for comparison purposes, I'm 5'10" tall, at 190 lb I'm about 30 lb overweight, old (55), lazy and, if you can't tell by my description so far, out of shape...unless you consider "round" a shape. Due to my advancing age and lack of physical fitness, I've been spending the last few years getting the gear I carry down to a more reasonable weight and, for a change, leaving… Full review

Osprey Aura AG 65

rated 5 of 5 stars Fits as if it were made for me! Comfortable and able to carry 40 pounds easily. Lots of pockets and securing straps. Removable lid. I bought this pack for this season and I am in love with it already. It fits like a glove to my torso. It is comfortable with 37-42 pounds, which will be my average weight on the trail with food. I like all the pockets and the deep side pockets fit my 32 oz Nalgene bottle perfectly. I like having hip belt pockets for easy to reach snacks and gear. I got a deal on this… Full review

The North Face Snow Leopard Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had this pack since 1988. It has completed the AT, the Vermont Long Trail, the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier including a summit of Rainier, and it has seen every inch of around 400 miles of trail and summit in the Catskill Mountains of N.Y. To this day, it has never torn, zippers have not broken, stays have stayed true to my body. It is still (other than the clear faded colors) as good as new. Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Quadrant 4900

rated 5 of 5 stars A solid pack for the extended trip. Plenty of space with accessible pockets and an easy to get to rainfly make this a good pack. I have been using this pack for the better part of two years, and we go camping about once a month (weekends) and one week-long trip in the summer and one-week long trip in the winter. I have reduced my load considerably and the pack continues to deliver.   It is easy to wear, easily adjustable. I’m 6'4" and have found this to fit me nicely where other packs ride too… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Sector 4200

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Well fitting, value conscious pack that is short on some details. This was my first high volume backpack since my military days 15 years ago. Purchased the ALPS Mountaineering Sector 4200 online from REI because of the price and in spite of some lacking features, notably pockets on the hip belt and shoulder straps. It is a comfortable pack at heavy weights. The load lifters and adjustable straps make for an easy carry whatever your pack weight. The hip belt in particular is solid and comfortable. Full review

Deuter ACT Lite 45+10 SL

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this pack. It's comfortable even when heavily loaded (hauling firewood FTW!) and has a great hip belt/suspension system. It's also stood up to a fair bit of abuse. My only complaint: I wish the hip belt were removable. Fit: I have a long torso but generally small build; fits great. Comfort/Ride: Great hip belt and suspension. I can even haul firewood for cabin camping with this thing. Easy to get a well-balanced, comfortable ride — not fiddly at all. Construction/Durability: I've put this… Full review
