Mountainsmith Frostfire III

rated 5 of 5 stars I've had two, first was stolen, bought replacement ~1995. Used it for years (5'10" ~180) bought a Frostfire II for my wife, she still uses it. Mine went to a friend who's 6'8" and was struggling to fit a pack. The tape measure torso length straps were brilliant, and gave this pack more work to do, and my friend USES this pack. Hopefully we'll be chasing mule muzzleloader deer in Colorado with it in 2016. I'll be carrying another Patrick Smith pack, a Kifaru Duplex. I've had two of these packs. The… Full review

Lowe Alpine Sirocco Classic

rated 4 of 5 stars Great all-purpose camping/backcountry hiking backpack. Has held up over a decade with multiple people using it on overnight to 30-day trips. A bit heavy compared to what's available today. Padding is comfortable but hot. This pack has been a great pack for the family. Has held up over a decade of backpacking and intercontinental trips (as a checked bag with flight cover) and has been loaned out to friends over the years. (Each person adjusting for their size.) Loved it as a great all purpose family… Full review

Granite Gear Leopard A.C. 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent long trip pack. I recently purchased this item on eBay because I needed a little more pack room for a week long hike and for "winter" backpacking. Used it in March 2016 and I loved it. It's lightweight but had all the extra room I needed for the extra gear I was carrying. I love the fact that its height is adjustable because that is the biggest problem I have in trying to get a good pack since my torso is short. I love the roll down opening and the big stretchy side pockets. The one drawback… Full review

Berghaus Wilderness 65+15

rated 5 of 5 stars A comfortable and capacious 65+15 litre rucksack with adjustable back system, front access to main compartment, and expanding side pockets. Berghaus Wilderness rucksack. Bungee cords and carabiner clips are my additions. The Wilderness is the top end model in the range of rucksacks made by British brand Berghaus. It has Berghaus's Biofit back system which allows you to adjust the height of the shoulder straps according to your back length. The back is well padded where it needs to be, at the shoulders… Full review

Osprey Kyte 46

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A nifty versatile backpack for the ladies, ideal for multiple uses and activities. With a starting weight of only 3.42-3.55 lbs and a load range between 20-45 lbs, this 46L pack has plenty of features. A great bag for you or the lady in your life, it holds everything you need and more for whatever your adventure needs! Osprey offers a variety of sizes and styles in their women's range, I've had this Kyte 46L bag for several months now and taken it on many backpacking and hiking outings. I haven't… Full review

Mystery Ranch Sphinx

rated 5 of 5 stars The Sphinx is a 65-liter volume panel-loading backpack made to Mystery Ranch's exceedingly high standards. Like many of their packs, it's a workhorse that can adapt well to the task of the day. I found the pack ideal for ice climbing and backpacking requiring off-trail bushwhacking, as the front zipper provides instant access to your rack and rope while keeping the outside of the pack as clean as possible. Best For: First Responders and Medics that need immediate access to packed items. Climbers,… Full review

Arc'teryx Altra 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars After coming from an external frame pack, this is excellent. Top of the line pack that will easily carry any heavy load because of Arc'teryx's patented hip belt. The fabric used in construction is top notch and durable. Great purchase that will last a long timeā€”if not for life. I use this for 2 to 7 day backpacking trips, most at high elevation in Western U.S. You could go longer, but it would require a space-saving sleeping bag, shelter, and strapping a lot of gear to the outside of your pack… Full review

Osprey Aura 65

rated 5 of 5 stars Even on a small frame like mine, this large pack is an excellent choice for a longer hike! First, I have to admit that I haven't actually been on a hike with this yet. I am training for a larger hike in May on a treadmill, but seeing as how this is my first pack ever (aside from childhood backpacks for school), I am extremely pleased! Osprey has a killer pack here. Here are the details: The "floating" back. I mean, there is wonderful mesh that allows for airflow between your back and the pack, no… Full review

ULA Equipment Circuit

rated 2 of 5 stars I was very excited to get my Circuit pack after all the glowing reviews. It fell short in almost every aspect. I ordered a ULA Circuit pack based primarily on a blogger's endorsement. I liked the look of the original green and was ready to love it. I never did. Although ULA is helpful with trying to get the right size to the customer, the pack never felt right due to the shoulder harness. The hip belt was comfortable and fine. I did not like how the lower part of the pack was rubbing against my… Full review
