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. The panel loading is great for stuffing bulky items like winter layers and such. The suspension really transfers the load to your hips and keeps your back cool. The waist belt pockets are large enough for a small camera (or cell phone) and energy bars. The map pocket is nice too. The sleeping bag compartment is way too small for my summer bag but I use it for my emergency kit,… Full review

Red Cloud 90

rated 4 of 5 stars Overall this pack fits the niche very well. For me it's a great pack to store my supplies plus supplies for the group. This bag is well constructed and shows little wear so far. For the price the Red Cloud is spot on and definitely one of the best bags I used. Full review

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.

SB 20

rated 5 of 5 stars Testing the SB20 down to 13 degrees. After an exhaustive search for a shoulder season bag, I stumbled across the SB20 on sale and couldn't pass it up. I had looked at the Montbell bags, which were heavier and not as warm. The Western Mountaineering Alpinlite was 2 oz lighter, but was more than double the price at $540. Not a good price per ounce saved in my opinion. I knew that Kelty made bombproof backpacks, but I've never considered one of their bags, because they've always been too heavy. Full review

Mistral 20

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A great bag, at a great price. Very warm. I bought this bag from Sierra Trading with the deal flyer discount, and it came in under $100. A very nice bag. I pack it in a large Alps Mountaineering compression bag. One of two long 20 degree bags I own. The other is the Marmot Sorcerer. This is the nicer bag. Full review
