Aether 60

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is a comfortable, fully adjustable, reasonable weight pack for light backpacking. 60L is a fairly tight fit, but enough room if you pack wisely. Not much to complain about with this pack. I use it for overnight hikes and winter snowshoe trips to shelters. It holds just enough gear without anything outside. And if pressed I'm sure I could pack more. It's extremely comfortable and I often forget I'm wearing it. I've never used the removable top as a waist belt and feel it's a somewhat useless… Full review

Aura AG 65

rated 5 of 5 stars Fits as if it were made for me! Comfortable and able to carry 40 pounds easily. Lots of pockets and securing straps. Removable lid. I bought this pack for this season and I am in love with it already. It fits like a glove to my torso. It is comfortable with 37-42 pounds, which will be my average weight on the trail with food. I like all the pockets and the deep side pockets fit my 32 oz Nalgene bottle perfectly. I like having hip belt pockets for easy to reach snacks and gear. I got a deal on this… Full review

Talon 44

rated 5 of 5 stars Just big enough. Lightweight. Durable and comfortable. I get out a lot all year long. This pack is my go-to overnight pack. It sits well due to the stabilizer straps and load balancing. It carries well on those long long days. It vents well on sweaty days. The pockets are carefully thought out for easy access to what I need through the course of the day. After five years it has one hole in it from a squirrel after my food. When I need a new pack it will be this one or one just like it. Full review

Exos 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Overall, the best pack I've ever owned. Light and comfortable. I just used my Exos 58 on the Lake Ozette triangle trail in the Olympic National Park and it performed beautifully. I'm 6'4" and 285, so obviously I used the Large version and it adjusted out to fit just fine. I had about 35 pounds of gear and the suspension system was still comfortable. Like some of the others, I wish it had a sleeping bag compartment, but hey, it's certainly not the first top loader I've owned. Overall, the best pack… Full review

Xena 85

rated 5 of 5 stars Solid, heavy-duty, high-capacity pack, with thick, comfortable padding, great for any longer backpacking or mountaineering trips. This pack is a beast — it's built to last! Highly adjustable back fits your spine length perfectly. True to Osprey packs, this packs offers a solid and comfortable frame. I've found the padding on the hip and shoulder pads to be much thicker than my old Osprey Aura 65 (bought in 2007, retired in 2015). I tested the Xena 85 recently on a 4-day, 28mi. backpacking trip… Full review
