Osprey Aether 70

rated 5 of 5 stars Bullet proof. I have the 2012 model with over 3,000 miles of hard back country California. The custom fit is excellent. I carry over 40 lbs most of the time. The fit is perfect. Take your time in the store. A total custom fit can be had if you take your time. The belt is heavy duty, perfect moulded fit. I have been on mining excursions where I have walked along the Feather River for three weeks and lived out of this pack and carried 65 lbs the whole trip. I have thousands of miles on this pack (2012… Full review

Lowe Alpine Vision 40

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent lightweight pack that is versatile for many conditions. I've had this pack for over 12 years now and use the heck out of it. I actually use this a lightweight multi-night pack, but when doing so I typically have to strap things like my sleeping bag on the outside. I've added a few more external straps to help add items and I've sewed in a little nylon hook for my water bladder in the back storage.   This bag is indestructible. Still to this day I have no tears (and I really pull down… Full review

Gregory Deva 85

rated 4 of 5 stars Very comfortable pack that can carry a heavier load and fit smaller (petite) lady hikers (xs size). As a petite (5'2") hiker, I was having a tough time finding a pack that fit comfortably. Tried men's small, but the fit was wrong. I needed a pack to carry lots of gear up Mt. Rainier and extended hikes and this pack sealed the deal. It fit my short torso comfortably, like a glove (xs frame option). First, it is a little heavier than most packs due to padding on the waist, back, and shoulders, but… Full review

Osprey Aether 70

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack for larger loads. I received this pack as a gift for Christmas, and now that the weather has been warmer I have been able to put it to good use.  After I received the pack I returned to the store it was purchased from (EMS)  to make sure that it was the correct size for me. Luckily the size matched my torso length and the hip belt was also the perfect size (there is the ability to switch out the hip belt, and shoulder harness to create a customized fit).  In addition to having the… Full review

Lowe Alpine Ophir

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I have had mine for more than 8 years, taking on many camping trips, backpacking, as well as several canoeing trips. iIt has lasted me the entire duration of my time in the scouting movement. This bag was easy to use, as well as had a very good back comforter. Full review

Mountain Laurel Designs Exodus FS

rated 5 of 5 stars My first frameless pack. I chose wisely. This is the first frameless pack I've owned. My older pack is a Kelty Coyote 80L, which works well enough, but is 4.5 pounds heavier than the Exodus empty. 4.5 pounds off my back without even having anything in it. I've had it for a year now and after ~400 miles of hiking (SHT mostly) the only damage is one small hole in a mesh pocket, which I probably could've prevented. I went with MLD based on a lot of other good reviews and the fact that they do custom… Full review

GoLite Men's Jam2

rated 5 of 5 stars Superb pack for lighter warm-weather and "shoulder-season" traveling. (Not the bag I use for winter camping, when I use my 0-degree synthetic bag, which would nearly fill this pack on its own.) Just kidding about the Yak. I don't have a pet Yak. This is my favorite pack for backpacking from April through Columbus Day in southern New England. I fit everything I need — 3-season or summer sleeping bag, sleeping pad, minimal shelter, clothing needs, cooking gear, food, safety equipment and water/water… Full review

Osprey Finesse Pro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The simplest, most versatile sack Osprey has ever made. Like a Timex, it keeps on ticking. My Finesse is from 1992, made in Dolores, CO. Repaired several times in the '90s by the same sewer. I knew her by name.  This is the pre "Vector" system sack, pointing back to a time before Osprey junked up (in my opinion), their backs with too much focus on being everything for everybody: the Vector system. And nowadays, Osprey packs simply have too many bells and whistles. I just don't need or want a doodad… Full review

MindShift Rotation180° Professional 38L

rated 5 of 5 stars This pack is specifically purposed for day hiking through the mountains with photographers in mind. It is very roomy and comfortable and built to last forever. With the addition of an optional top pocket plus judicious use of straps, it is possible to use it as an overnight pack. The unique design of the Mindshift Rotation 180 Pro places it in a class by itself compared to all other photo day hiking packs. Basic Specs: 2287 cubic inches + 200 cu in extra with optional removable top pocket. 3.5 lbs… Full review
