Osprey Exos 58

rated 4 of 5 stars The Osprey Exos 58 is a great lightweight backpack for thru-hiking. I used the older model on multiple long hikes before it began to wear out. Osprey’s tremendous warranty resulted in them sending me the new, updated version which, in most ways, seems even better than before. I bought my first Osprey Exos 58 before hiking the Colorado Trail in 2014. Last year I used the pack to hike the Long Trail and John Muir Trail. With some other trips, my total mileage with the pack was about 1,500 miles. Full review

Granite Gear Vapor Trail

rated 5 of 5 stars Best all-around backpack. Took mine on over 2,000 miles of trail (AT and John Muir). Never had any issues, no noticeable wear or tear besides a little waist belt slippage. My base was around 9 lbs (Hennesy Hammock!) so I could carry plenty of food and water and not overload it. There were times when I had at least 30 lbs food and water and it still performed well. Needed a replacement pack after losing it and ended up buying another (used) one on eBay. Not as light as some of the ultralight packs… Full review

Mountainsmith Lariat 65

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had this backpack for a little over a year now, and this thing is awesome. I take it out hunting with my dad and we end up hiking over 10 miles a weekend. Most of which is a lot of bushwhacking. The pack is very durable and comfortable for the price. I highly recommend this pack to anyone who is on a budget looking for a quality weekend pack.

REI Women's Flash 65 Pack

rated 5 of 5 stars This pack is excellent for weekend and longer trips. It has a ton of adjustments to stabilize the pack and to secure its contents. It Is an all around great pack. Good job, REI! This pack is excellent for weekend and longer trips. I found the chest strap on the previous version to be too high. This version it is perfectly placed and the deep side mesh pockets are great. The bottom access makes loading and unloading extremely fast. The straps both shoulder and hip belt are the perfect size for me… Full review

Berghaus Unisex Expedition Light 40

rated 3.5 of 5 stars As I wrote in pros and cons, would be great pack if water resistant. At the back closed cell panel. As a pro, off course;-) Full review

Dana Design Shadow Peak

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought mine in 1995. It's been all over Alaska, the Philippines, N.Y., and all my other traveling in the last 20 plus years. It is always with me. Even if I have other stuff it's the first bag packed. There are a few rips and a broken clip, but 20+! years of constant use it has stood the test of time. The best pack I have ever had. It's been literally 10s of thousands of miles in airplanes, boats, cars, trucks, buses, and on foot through rivers over mountains, jungles, and cities—just about anything… Full review

REI Traverse 85

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Functional. Comfortable. REI stepping up their mid-high end packs. Fit: I'm right in between the M and L size, so it was suggested that I go with the L. After playing with a few settings, the pack fits like a glove and load is secure to my back with little shifting. Comfort: Great ventilation. Shoulder and hip straps are very comfortable and mold well to my body. Capacity: I originally picked up the Traverse 70, but hiking with kids, I needed some added space for more gear. 85 seem perfect for the… Full review

Deuter Futura Pro 40 SL

rated 5 of 5 stars This is great backpack for overnight, but I also use it for day hiking too. It carries your gear comfortably and has lots of pockets and a rain cover. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to invest in a hard wearing, great all-around backpack. I'm a 5'5" and 120 pounds woman and it fit like a glove. I started my Camino de Santiago with another backpack that was just awful. I replaced it early on in my two-month 575 mile hike across Spain with the Deuter Futura Pro 40. Wow, it was an… Full review

Jack Wolfskin Trail Head II

rated 4 of 5 stars Love the pack. A friend found it for me and I've been using it every day for many months. The two top zippers finally broke, but the rest is in top shape. I've been homeless for 2 years and this is the best pack yet. It is very comfortable, even when I have over 50 lbs. in it, which is quite often. Full review
