Mountainsmith Lariat 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A fantastic pack for overnight or the long weekend away, the Lariat has all the features you can use without all the add-ons you don't need. Easy to carry, it puts everything right where you need it with a simple zipper. I started looking for a new pack about three years ago to replace my tried and trusted Lowe Alpine Contour which had been my companion across the US for years. I wanted a lighter pack with good suspension. I studied and compared, I tried on a lot of different styles and makes of… Full review

Mountainsmith Circuit 3.0

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I use this pack for multi-day trips into Wilderness. It is extremely comfortable and easy to adjust without stopping. I am with a federal agency. I am also a wildland firefighter and I use this pack when I take the "pack test." Loaded with 45 lbs I can do three miles in less than 45 minutes with no pain or strain with the Mountainsmith Circuit 3.0. After 30 years of backcountry travel and backpacking this pack feels better than any I have used or owned! Full review

Kelty Men's PK 50

rated 4 of 5 stars Used this pack for a 6-day Boy Scout event and worked beautifully. I didn't have to hike far to the campsite, but it was more than comfortable and I was able to stand around waiting until the site opened up without any complaints. Love the closure system and the fact that it doesn't use zippers which can often fail and bunch up on the fabric. The only real flaw that I have noticed is the two pockets which make up the flaps aren't very usable when the pack is loaded and I think it would work better… Full review

High Sierra Tangent 45

rated 3 of 5 stars Great lightweight all around pack with a faulty water delivery system. I would give it a higher review if the water feature did not leak. I got a great deal on this pack at Costco. I would have bought it without the water feature, but having the Camelbak water feature was a plus. Unfortunately it leaks at the bottom valve. I took back the first backpack right away and got a second one and had the same problem. The slow leak soaks the contents of your pack and drips through into your lower back and… Full review

JanSport Katahdin 70L

rated 4 of 5 stars After purchasing this pack in the spring, I finally put it to use on the AT the first weekend of June. The pack performed admirably carrying all the gear needed for a weekend trek. I am a large hiker at 6'4", 210 pounds, and I appreciated the adjustable shoulder straps. I was able to carry most of the weight on my hips and legs. The mesh pockets on the outside of the pack kept snacks, trail maps, lights and cameras readily available. The top pouch was also convenient for easy access. Given that… Full review

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
