Arc'teryx Bora 80

rated 5 of 5 stars In this world of ultralight BPing gear is there still a place for this 7 lb beast? Answer, "Oh hell yeah!" I bought this pack when they were still made in Canada. It is not made of the lighter waterproof materials that I've read about in some reviews.  So what?  That's why they make dry bags and pack covers. The benefits of the older Bora 80s is they are virtually indestructible.  Let me put it to you like this and I'll let you ponder the implications of having something that weighs a couple… Full review

Arc'teryx Bora 95

rated 5 of 5 stars Great large capacity pack that is excellent in cold wet/snowy weather. I've put this pack through some interesting situations. Once, I wanted to camp out on an island on a river so I threw the full pack on an inner tube and swam across the river to the island. Along the way the pack was about 1/4 submerged. When I unpacked, everything was dry.  Another time I brought the pack up a frozen river with a bunch of small, frozen-over cascades. On the way out, I rode the pack down the iced river on a… Full review

Lowe Alpine Morning Star 75L+

rated 4 of 5 stars Large single compartment, no frills, no extras, water resistant pack. Does the job well but offers little in access points. Fit: Fits well and fits a variety of sizes. I've lent the pack to others over the past several years and everyone has said that it was a good ride. Comfort: I find the pack is very comfortable. The hip and shoulder straps don't look like much but they have a pretty firm closed cell foam core that works pretty well.  Capacity: This pack holds a surprising amount. It expands… Full review

Osprey Crescent 85

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack for extended trips. Places majority of weight on the hips. Very comfortable and very durable. It is my current go to pack. Fit: Form fitted foam for the hips. Shoulder straps are very comfortable. I bought the pack used and did not get it re-fitted but the pack is still fantastic. I think the pack distributes a bit too much to the hips and my hips were sore for the first two days of a week-long trip. If I get the hips re-molded, I think it will solve the problem.  Comfort: Minus the… Full review

Gregory Stout 35

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great hiking, climbing, overnight or travel pack. Beautiful design and color scheme. Nice fit and larger than expected. This is for the large size. First, the pack is larger that I expected, and probably holds more than the stated 35L.  Not a bad thing, but remember this is the smallest in the line-up.  Second, the color of the bag blew me away – such a nice design...the orange is a little darker, more of a rusty orange, with beautiful blue-green trim including under the lid and the rain cover.

Osprey Aether 70

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Comfortable, rugged, reliable brand. This pack has fit like a glove since day one. I'm a big fella and able to carry some big loads. This pack ensures the weight is firmly driven into the hips and not carried on the shoulders. The hip belt is the strength of this pack. It is nicely padded and carries the load perfectly. I do long tramps for tens of kilometres a day and this bag makes that all the more doable. This is all the more so given the type of county The organisation of the pack is also great. Full review

The North Face Terra 60

rated 1 of 5 stars I guess I am just and old school type. This pack does not transfer weight to hips. I will be using it for a luggage bag and will go back to my old Jansport external. Full review

Gregory Palisade 80

rated 4 of 5 stars Finally used this for something beyond car camping. Went on a 4-day backpacking trip with son and a few others from his Boy Scout Troop. Pack was comfortable and a bottomless pit. Four-day backpacking trip with son's Boy Scout Troop and the Gregory Palisade 80 took everything I had ... even when I fell on it. It carried my gear and a good bit of the Troop gear with room to spare. The articulating hip belt made the pack feel like it wasn't even there at times even though it weighed in well over 45… Full review

The North Face Renegade

rated 5 of 5 stars I really really love this pack!!! Bought it in the mid '90s and I still have it and use it.  Has traveled with me through Europe, Middle East, and exploring the Annapurna Range in Nepal's Himalayas — has never let me down yet.  Now using it hiking, camping, backpacking with my sons and with their scout troop. It outperforms many of the new packs being used.  Have looked at other packs but none match up to this one. Its like your first love or car, you love them forever!!! Full review
