Recent Internal Frame Backpack Reviews

Deuter Futura Pro 42

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Purchased in 2009 and used everyday while working seasonally for the USFS (6 years). Pack is bombproof, no popped zippers, no torn seams or ripped attachments even while it was way over stuffed and used to carry trail maintenance tools. Used this pack for over 160 days a year for over 6 seasons in the Nez Perce NF with the US Forest Service without a lick of trouble. Held its shape even when stepped on by a pack mule. The pack was very comfortable to wear and my back stayed cooler than the traditional… Full review

Mountainsmith Scream 55

rated 4 of 5 stars A well-built frameless weekender, the Scream 55 can be a year-round performer if the rest of your gear allows it. Keep your total weight under 30 pounds and head for the hills. Best For: Weekend warriors with lightweight gear still looking for that 90%-of-the-time backpack. Ultralighters that want a measure of waterproofness. Design The Scream 55 is a mid-size, frameless backpack constructed mostly of Robic, one of the newest, most promising fabrics to come along since the Dimension Polyant's X-Pac… Full review

Marmot Eiger 42

rated 4 of 5 stars Very solid. Backpacks' weights claimed and real: Berghaus Arete 3: 1110g vs 1140g The North Face Prophet 40: 1290 vs 1360 Marmot Eiger 42: 1220 vs 1470 Berghaus Expedition 40: 1290 vs 1330 Looks very solid and durable, good stitches. Full review

Deuter ACT Lite 75+10

rated 4 of 5 stars A great, simple, and functional backpack. The first review of this product is very accurate.  It's comfortable, durable, and a great value.  I just wanted to mention another wonderful feature: The removable top that converts into a day pack. This adds invaluable versatility. For wilderness backpacking, after establishing a base camp you can use the use the day pack for day/summit hikes without hauling the main pack around. The day pack has enough space for about day's worth of food and water,… Full review

Dana Design Stillwater

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great pack... minimal bells and whistles. I think of it as a "sack with a flap." In 2000 I re-walked Colin Fletcher's 1000 Mile Summer. This was my pack and it served me very well (and still does). I see that Dana is still using some of the old pack designs in his Mystery Ranch products. If I ever wear this one out I will give MR products a look. The only complaint I have is, it's a heavy pack when empty. That being said, I still think a lighter weight pack may have never lasted this long... it… Full review

Osprey Atmos 50

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I've used this pack for 2-4 night trips in the Smokies. 5 nights is pushing it, as this thing isn't huge, but it provides all of the space I need. If you're looking for a sturdy, lightweight pack that offers more support than an ultralight pack over a few days, it's hard to go wrong with this pack. I love this pack. It fits me well. I'm 5'8" and 140 pounds. The hip belts sit in the appropriate place and all of the straps fit me correctly, which can be difficult to manage with some men's packs since… Full review

REI Women's Flash 50 Pack

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Overall good, but the straps hurt! It's a good pack to start backpacking with. It's light and had different compartments on the outside and top of the backpack. The only bad part for me is the straps. They're very thin and don't have much padding.  Full review

Coleman Max 65

rated 5 of 5 stars Was apprehensive about buying a Coleman pack for multi-day excursions, but my concerns were quickly put to rest. This pack is—especially considering the low cost—awesome! It fits my average 5' 10" frame perfectly and is fully adjustable. The pack is well constructed and has stood up to five years of beatings. I have had a few of my "gearhead" friends roll their eyes but hey, I got what I needed at a price anyone can appreciate. Full review

Osprey Exos 58

rated 5 of 5 stars It's light, it has a lot of room, all the important features, great quality, and no real cons. I can't add much to what has already been written about this backpack. This is a great pack and if you're on the fence buy it. I'm reviewing it because it's been a few months since anyone else has, and it's one of the few pieces of gear I have that I am completely satisfied with.   In photo below it's filled to the brim with extra insulation. It's light so I'm not worried about compression. It's big enough… Full review
