Gregory Z55

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great backpack. Lightweight and comfortable. Great backpack, use the size S and amber orange color. Live in Indonesia that has a lot of humid and wet tropical mountain. Feel comfort if your torso is match with the size of the backpack. Used this pack at Indonesia's mountain (mt. Sindoro) when rainy season and this pack performed well, hard rain comes when i walked down the mountain and i forgot to bring rain cover but my stuff inside still dry.  Full review

Gossamer Gear G4

rated 4 of 5 stars Ultralight, simple, effective, comfortable, proven over many years. I've used my first and only G4 for almost a decade on many short ultralight and 'Boy Scout' trips. It's never failed me. Full review

Arc'teryx Axios 50

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Light & Fast pack with fine balance between BPL and comfortable. Have used this pack for 2 years, especially summer season.  Harness and back panel is really cool and keeps you dry.  And light, not super light, and comfortable in low weight. Only problem is pain of shoulder, when load is over 15kg.

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 of pounds… 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. Full review

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
