Recent Internal Frame Backpack Reviews

Osprey Exos 58

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is an excellent light pack for UL backpackers who can go for 7 days with a starting load under 30 lbs (2014 model). This would make a great thru-hiker pack. I bought this pack to replace my aging REI Cruise UL 60 pack. I love the EXOS 58's comfort, even with 30 lbs. The mesh back panel rides very comfortably and is cooler by far than my mesh covered foam REI back panel.  Inside this single compartment pack is a small QR buckle to hold up your hydration bladder in its sleeve. Also there's a… Full review

Mile High Mountaineering Salute 34

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This daypack has many features that give you the versatility to store your gear in many configurations for your next adventure. If this is your first pack I would think hard about buying it. I feel this pack is not for everyone. I like to bushwhack and follow animal trails, which sometimes have limited space areas. This pack has very strong material, but at the cost of weight, but I don’t have the fear of knocking shoulder strap off. This pack gives me the ability to care want is needed on my… Full review

Lowe Alpine Contour IV

rated 5 of 5 stars Have used on numerous treks in all seasons. Multiple adjustment strap system, built-in yoke strap, and padded waist belt were the convincing points for purchase in early 1990s for a tall, narrow waist male. Bought the Alpine IV in early 1990s, has been used in multiple treks, trips on weekends and summer. Holds as much as you want it to, sometimes too much. Chose this pack for its stability factor and ability to adjust various straps (belt, should) to ventilate or adjust CG while descending or ascending… Full review

REI Morning Star 75

rated 4.5 of 5 stars It holds a lot and the top cap can be used as a basic summit bag. Little heavy, but has zippered body divider that I used to stash my shoes or dirty clothes in the bottom. Used it for a weeklong trip with my girlfriend in the Blue Ridge Mountain parks and it held all of the stuff we needed and then some. Long enough for tent poles and felt fine most of the time hiking. Was a little bigger than needed, but if you're going for a short trek and want to have some comfort gear then this pack will hold… Full review

Lowe Alpine Contour IV

rated 5 of 5 stars Durable, stable, comfortable, durable, easily adjustable (older version, not the new one). Bought the old one barely used maybe 20 years ago. Used to go to the Alps every year. Never had a single thing break on it but the waterproofing died years ago. Looked at all the new ones last year, probably some that were better, ended up getting another Contour IV (much newer model) barely used for $45 this fall. Added a homemade double loop thumbstrap to the sternum strap so I'd have a place to hook my… Full review

Mystery Ranch Terraplane Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars The new Terraplane is an excellent pack for expedition use and other “heavy hauler” users, where it is necessary to haul loads up to 80 or more pounds and still be comfortable. The various Terraplane versions have developed a well-deserved reputation for stability and comfort for these situations. Best used for expeditions, and other extended backpacking uses where heavy loads will be carried. Weight: 6.8 lb/3.1kg Capacity: 5000 cu-in/82 L List Price: $485 Background: The first question many… Full review

Osprey Xenith 75

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Nice backpack for overnight or multi-day backpacking. I use this pack for multi-day backpacking. I can recommend this pack to my friends, absolutely. This pack is lighter than other same volume packs, but with good suspension. This is the most comfortable backpack that I have used. Especially pockets have very good positioning, very easy to access.  Light, comfort, easy to use, anything more needed? (and not too expensive.) Highly recommend.  Full review

Mystery Ranch Men's 12-Bar

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good pack. Dana designs great packs that will last and this is no exception. Full review

Kelty Red Cloud 90

rated 4 of 5 stars Overall this pack fits the niche very well. For me it's a great pack to store my supplies plus supplies for the group. This bag is well constructed and shows little wear so far. For the price the Red Cloud is spot on and definitely one of the best bags I used. Full review
