Camp Pillow

rated 4 of 5 stars Have two. Very comfortable. A very good low priced pillow. Takes up a bit of room even when in stuff sack. The less bulky option is an inflatable pillow. Like all of my Kelty products, well made at a great price. Full review

Trekker 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very well finished and sturdy. The load lifter shoulder straps are a big deal and make this pack work for you. Back ventilation is second to none.

Impact 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great pack for long day hikes. I use this pack for all day hikes. I also use it for all my winter hiking/snowshoeing trips.

Continental Divide 5300 (External)

rated 4 of 5 stars Some people will look at this pack and say it has an identity crisis. It is basically an internal frame bag attached to a narrow external frame. There are pros and cons to this, mostly depending on how you like to pack. This model is out of production, but a lot of folks might find that it meets their needs. This sort of design works great for expeditions with heavy loads, and it could be a great deal for someone who finds it used. No one has reviewed this pack in almost ten years, but I figured… Full review
