Blackhawk! Barrage Hydration Pack

rated 4 of 5 stars A heavy-duty "military style" 3-day pack that is designed to last forever, no matter what you do with it. Although BlackHawk! categorizes it as a hydration pack, I believe the hydration bladder is a small portion of this pack. I purchased this pack prior to a deployment overseas in 2008 and it still looks brand new today. In between being an every day carry item thru Kuwait and Afghanistan, it has also been used as a day pack for hikes and hunting. As well as a great commuter bag and travel bag. … Full review

Osprey Volt 75

rated 5 of 5 stars Great fit without a lot of weight. I would definitely recommend this backpack for anyone doing a 3-4 night outing. Just purchased this pack in July 2014. Have used it 4 times in the Adirondacks of NY and AT in NJ and Maine. I bought it for the lesser pack weight of 3lbs 12oz vs my other, older Osprey pack. This is a one-size-fits-all pack with an adjustable stay system that I really liked, especially if you're an in-between size like me. It carries 4,700 cu, so I did have to choose my gear wisely… Full review

Osprey Talon 44

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great transitional bag! I'm 5'11" with a slender build @ 162 lbs. I bought the bag at the beginning of the 2014 spring season with the intent of doing lightweight trips up to 5 nights. On a 1-2 night cool-weather trip, I carry 27 lbs of gear (including a full 3 liter hydration bladder and 1 change of clothes), minus food. For longer cool weather trips, an additional change of clothes and larger fuel bottle brings it to 30 lbs of gear, minus food. The bag handles this very well, is light, quite… Full review

GoLite Jam 50L

rated 5 of 5 stars Solid entry into backpacking with less weight, more miles and more fun. If you're wanting to go lighter but aren't ready to commit lots of money to a specialized pack, go for this pack. Fit: 35" waist and got a large; this will put you at the end of the belt straps — lose any weight and belt won't be as tight (just a note) 19.5" back measurement (iirc); length is fine on the large Comfort: hip belt padded appropriately; no rough spots shoulder straps padded appropriately; no digging/pinching/etc… Full review

Teton Sports Scout 3400

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great quality pack with lots of pockets and loops. I purchased this backpack about 1 years ago, used it so much. On trips I carried food, a tent, a sleeping bag, sleeping pad and clothes for three days without a problem. I'm content with this product. Full review

Berghaus Expedition Light 80

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Berghaus Expedition Light 80 is a large capacity pack with a lightweight design. It has a surprisingly supportive suspension system which provides comfort in the hips and shoulders. It has a low, stable profile, even while strapping everything from skis to my dog's pack to the outside. It can be warm during hot days. I would recommended the Expedition Light to backpackers and mountaineers looking for a large capacity pack that is functional with heavy loads in the 50 plus pound range all seasons… Full review

Lowe Alpine Vision 40

rated 5 of 5 stars A 1-2 night fast and light pack. I am 5'11" 190 and this pack has fit me very well, it is somewhat adjustable.  The hip belts and shoulder straps are very well padded with and the padding has stood up well over time.  I think it truly holds 40L, but is 40L enough for a reasonable amount of gear? If you want to get more than a day hike out of this pack you will have to be very selective about your gear selection for the sake of eliminating bulk. I do believe that you could comfortable carry 35-40lbs… Full review

High Sierra Col 35

rated 4 of 5 stars Reasonably priced, reasonably spacious, reasonably usable. This is a reasonably priced entry pack. It fits well enough, carries enough, and is simple enough to be useful to almost anyone that gets it. The fact that it's a mere two pockets makes it impossible to get confused where stuff is, but you need to have some method of organizing smaller items or they will be lost without unpacking the entire thing. The main pocket is pretty cavernous for a 35 liter pack and can swallow a surprising amount… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Shasta 3600

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This pack is rock solid durable. I would trust it every day of the week and twice on Sunday. The extensive adjustabilty, including the torso harness and especially the well designed load lifting straps and side compression straps, made configuring a heavy load easy. I have been a lifelong loyal supporter of external frames backpacks for a variety of reasons, most of which have nothing to do with performance. As a younger hiker, the lack of disposable income meant that all of my gear was particularly… Full review
