Kinetic II

rated 4.5 of 5 stars My go-to hip pack. Napolean Dynamite would be proud. For bumming around outside of town, I love this pack. Big enough to hold snacks, camera, and drinks. It's comfortable, easy to work with and holds up. Overall it's great. Fit: Snug and ergonomic Comfort: Padded, good Capacity: Just enough for what you need for a day Organization and accessibility: I wish the drink pockets were just a tad deeper so it could hold store bought water bottles a bit more secure. If I transfer my drinks into the classic… Full review

Tour TLS

rated 5 of 5 stars Some people might think a fanny pack will make you look like a nerd. But its durability and comfort make the Mountainsmith Tour TLS pack a great choice for day hikes, cross country skiing, and using as a man-purse (or lady purse) around town. Fit: This fanny lumbar pack will fit most adults. The heavier you are, the less coverage you'll get from the light padding on the hipbelt. I have a 32 inch waist, and I might get nervous if I was skinnier than a 30 inch waist. Mountainsmith says it will work… Full review

Morrison 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great tent for solo usage. Kudos. First time usage was in early October, 2014, in NW Pa., Allegheny National Forest. Two nights of rain surely a test with 8 hrs and 10hrs of rain respectively. Only a few drips from the two rainfly vents. Both vents were opened during the entire two-night rainstorm. No complaints. 2 THUMBS UP Full review

Mountainlight Scream 25

rated 5 of 5 stars This pack is a great lightweight and minimalist choice for day hikes. It is easily packed down small to fit into a larger backpack. Durability exceeds anything else in its class. It is a frameless pack with minimal padding, so it has its limitations. If you take those considerations into account before buying this pack, you might just find that it's perfect for you. Fit: This is a one-size-fits-all pack. I'm about 5'10" and have a 19-ish inch torso, and it fits me really well. I'm a fairly normally… Full review

Pyrite 7075

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Vast improvements over last year's model. Cork grips, better carbide tips, and ability to lock out the shock absorber have been added. I felt compelled to write this review because I own the last year's model and bought a pair of this year's model of the Pyrite 7075 for a through hike of the John Muir Trail. Last year's model had rubber grips and a high wear rate on the carbide tips during moderate hiking in Alabama. Also, the shock absorber was full-time and could not be turned off. The locks always… Full review
