Recent Internal Frame Backpack Reviews

Osprey Quantum

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great backpack for school, carry-on luggage, or short camping trips. It had held up very well to all the abuse I have subjected it to over the last four years. I'm a 5"10' and 190 lbs guy and the Quantum fits me perfectly. I used it though college, several weeklong trips with air travel and camping. It didn't require any breaking-in to be comfortable. It's more than adequate to hold everything you could need for a week with room to spare. I highly recommend the Osprey Quantum.  Full review

Sierra Designs Jubilee 50

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Sub-standard pack for women. I really wanted to like this pack. I thought about it for weeks before making the purchase, so I was very dejected when it came. I left the tags on it for another couple of weeks while I deliberated over returning it. In the end I kept it only because I got it on clearance. Where to begin, I've learned to drop my expectations when purchasing gear made especially for women (that's a whole other rant), but this one was disappointing more that usual. I had to ignore the… Full review

Deuter ACT Lite 50+10

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great pack. I have been on four week-long overseas trips with this pack and it performed above expectations. This pack is awesome. Super comfortable. The pack fit this mixture pretty well. NO complaints and I would recommend this pack to anyone in the market for a new pack. Full review

Osprey Aether 70

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I love this pack. It's comfortable, even when loaded down pretty heavily. It holds a ton of gear but allows you to access that gear more easily than a lot of other packs. The quantity and positioning of compression straps make it easy to reign in smaller loads, as well as help me exercise pretty good pack discipline on shorter trips. The sleeping bag compartment is huge, which is nice. I also really like that I can keep my trekking poles on the side when I don't need them, rather than reaching around,… Full review

The North Face Men's Terra 45

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pack, I have had this for years. It's a great pack for its size, fits well, and works great for me. Full review

Mammut Trion Guide 45+7

rated 5 of 5 stars Great all round alpine pack with large front pocket great for easy access gear like layers or ski touring safety equipment. The Trion Guide is a well sized pack perfect for mountaineering, ski touring, and general hiking.  The fit is one-size-fits-all, and it's very similar to Deuter's Guide series of packs. The padding isn't anything special, and the straps seem to fit well to my 5'10" narrow shouldered frame. The hip belt moves pretty well and doesn't get in the way of climbing or skiing. You… Full review

Lowe Alpine Peak Attack 42

rated 4 of 5 stars The Lowe Alpine Peak Attack is a 42L classic, single compartment mountaineering -inspired pack. With those uses in mind the pack boasts added durability without a weight penalty, weighs 950 grams, and includes glove-friendly features (zipper pulls, buckles and grab loops) and a unique ice tool attachment system. This pack would be best for winter mountaineering, summer backpacking, or as a large day pack for hiking or cragging. Specs (from Lowe Alpine): Volume: 42lt / 2565cu.in Weight: 0.95kg /… Full review

Deuter ACT Lite 75+10

rated 5 of 5 stars Comfortable adjustable pack that can adapt to haul a lot or a little. Quality construction with some thoughtful details. Weighs in at 4 lbs 5 oz, a good compromise between weight and haul-ability. Age and prior back injuries has made finding a backpack I could wear a difficult task. With the Deuter Act Lite 75+10, I finally found a pack that I could not only carry but was comfortable also. For me, the key was to find a pack that did not put any pressure directly on my spine. The "air contact" system… Full review

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
