Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $120

I love this pack, and actually got a great deal on it. $120 clearance, compared to the $300 usual. Great features: extending top for extra room, detachable pack on front for small hikes, side entry, top entry, deep compartments and sealed zippers.

Cons: bad water bottle carriers (this seems like a minute detail, but they cannot fit tall water bottles).

I will say, it has been an awesome pack, and can hold a week's load if you pack light, however, if you're going to carry a sleeping bag, you better use down in a compression sack. The sleeping bag compartment is on the smaller side, and my synthetic bag is a tight fit.

Make the most of your backcountry adventures with Mountain Hardwear's Intention 75 backpack that provides plenty of comfort with a full HDPE framesheet and an Advanced Fit-Lock hipbelt system with a lumbar pad. Dial in the fit hipbelt that conforms to your figure for better load transfer to your legs while you maintain the utmost comfort through the shoulders with the adjustable torso length, if you need to carry less, strip this pack down or remove its lid or top compartment - both convert to small daypacks.
