Deuter ACT Lite 65+10

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, large capacity pack that's good for a week or a weekend. First and foremost, this pack is comfortable! Deuter's Aircontact system provides great ventilation for your back and the foam padding on the hip belt and shoulder straps is very comfortable and breathable. And, at just over 4 pounds, the ACT Lite is lightweight while sacrificing nothing in quality or comfort. I also have Deuter's Aircontact 75+10 pack and have reviewed it too. While the 75+10 has multiple lash points on it's… Full review

Deuter ACT Lite 65+10

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great lightweight pack that is extraordinarily strong as well. Took this on a fifty miler to break it in and it performed exceptionally. Had it fitted at the shop for my son who packed it on the fifty. Hip belts and should straps were comfortable and fit well. It carried everything he needed for a five-day backpacking trek without using the additional space. Load was well distributed and everything worked in harmony. This is a great pack that is well built and durable. It worked well in… Full review

Granite Gear Virga 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Minimalist, lightweight, quite comfortable, great for backcountry tips of one to several days and nights knowing that it is necessary to pack light. Even though this is advertised as a men's backpack, as a woman who backpacks alone, I need to carry as much as possible lightly. This pack fit my medium frame and height as well. Everything adjusts to fit, and the chest support can be adjusted to fit across correctly. I find with other men's packs, this strap hits in the wrong area, so when needed,… Full review

Osprey Atmos 65

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent pack, very lightweight and comfortable. Great for weekend or PCT. I've been on 5 trips with this pack and overall was very pleased with my purchase of this pack. It is a good mix of weight, size, and construction. The area I traveled to required bear canisters and mine fit sideways into the pack no problem, which was a major plus. It has sufficient exterior pockets, and the sleeping bag compartment is good size and able to fit my down fill bag with ease! I have not tried a synthetic but… Full review

Osprey Atmos 65 AG

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Overall, the pack is very comfortable. However, I am not sure the designers ever thought about anyone carrying more than 30 lbs in it or they would have NEVER made the hip belt pads lock in place with sub-standard hook-and-loop closure system. This failed on my 5th day wearing the pack, with only 40 lbs loaded in the pack. I had to shoulder 90% of the weight of my pack for a week after this, ruining my trip. I purchased this pack new and took it on a quick weekend trip with about 32 lbs in it, and… Full review

Gossamer Gear Mariposa Ultralight

rated 5 of 5 stars Semi-ultralight pack with lots of pockets. First, I'm not going to give you the specs. If you're interested in the pack you probably know all that. Thus my story. Long long ago in a far off national park I had my ass leveled backpacking. I had been packing with some guys on our level southern trails and was carrying over 50 lbs for a weekend, not a problem. You ask why the weight? 8 lb packs, 8 lb tents, propane stoves, you get the picture. Then we hit the mountains, what hell it was. I'm sure some… Full review

GoLite Peak Pack

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Buy one (if you can). I got it used for $30. This is the pack I take with me on short hikes. It is easy to convert so I mostly use this as a daypack, would not work for longer trips but works for an overnight camping. No problem on fishing trips with the family, takes all the gear without a problem. I got it used so I have no idea how much it had been used before I got it. I only had it for a few months but I hike quite a bit so it has seen some use. It seems durable. Backing a frameless pack… Full review

The North Face Terra 65

rated 4 of 5 stars Just a great back. It is a simple and comfortable. Just the perfect size for a week or two of the trail. I got it as a reserve pack, but I ended up using it more that my main pack. Well organized  Simple "not a lot of stuff that can go wrong" Easy to adjust  Comfortable. I had issues with shoulder straps but after a little getting used to and modification it works great.  It is a cheap pack that might surprise you. Full review

Arc'teryx Bora 95

rated 5 of 5 stars A tough, durable backpack designed to last forever! You can fit a vast volume of things in this backpack, so it's perfect for longer trips, i.e. not for ultralight backpacking. Conditions: I'm living in Ecuador, and have been working a couple of years in the jungle, making maps. The humidity is constantly high and the vegetation is pretty much always wet, there are thorns and sharp rocks everywhere, and the elevations differences lead to quite high falls. I routinely fall into mud and every now… Full review
