Recent Internal Frame Backpack Reviews

JanSport Big Bear 78

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a solidly built pack that has held up for many trips and many years. This pack has held up real nice for many years. I have taken it many miles, and there are a few things I learned while using this pack. Fill your water bladder with room temperature water and put it in a plastic bag before putting it in the bladder sleeve. This will prevent your bladder from condensing, which prevents the inside of your pack from getting wet. This pack works for me, some people who have put it on empty… Full review

Mile High Mountaineering Fifty-Two 80

rated 1.5 of 5 stars After 27,000 miles with a variety of backpacks, I've had no problems till now. The shoulder strap twists out of its flat position unto its edge, pressing into the chest like a rope. The force actually pulls the clip of the sternum strap off its track. Very uncomfortable. Customer Service appears silent additionally on its quality control. After 27,000 miles with a variety of backpacks, I've had no problems till now. The 5280 looks like a luscious lollypop and yet has a critical design flaw. The… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Porter

rated 5 of 5 stars As the editor of an outdoor website covering the outdoor sports of Central Washington, I own a lot of packs, big and small. Of all of them, this is currently my favorite. This has become my go-to pack for gear-intensive day tripping (e.g., backcountry skiing, rock climbing) as well as for lightweight multi-day trips. It’s not the very lightest pack of its capacity out there (my pack weighs 2 pounds, 1 ounce) but is the lightest pack of its capacity that has reinforced sides and bottoms for contenting… Full review

Gregory Savant 58

rated 2.5 of 5 stars I so wanted this pack to work for me. Very intelligently designed and very well made. Even comes with a very nice rain cover and pouch. Easy to get to compartments conveniently located .... and the main bag can be opened via top or horse-shoe zipper on bottom. Nice. HOWEVER, Gregory screwed up with the shoulder straps. They have NO adjustments to size to fit your torso. One size fits all. I could never adjust the shoulder straps to bear any weight. Took it to the store and they tried and couldn’t… Full review

Deuter Futura Pro 42

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Purchased in 2009 and used everyday while working seasonally for the USFS (six years). Pack is bombproof, no popped zippers, no torn seams or ripped attachments even while it was way overstuffed and used to carry trail maintenance tools. Used this pack for over 160 days a year for over six 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
