Summary

To sum up, this is a very well thought-out pack. Very comfortable. Very practical. Very durable. I would recommend this pack to anyone in an instant.

Pros

  • Durable material and zippers
  • Very comfortable
  • Well thought-out pack

Cons

  • Nothing to be honest. Someone above mentioned a water bottle holder would be nice, which is true, however if you want to strap on tents and mattress pads or stoves these would get in the way of you retrieving your water. What I do is strap on my water bottle myself on the hip straps.

I bought this pack many years ago being a scout that did a lot of hiking and canoe camps. At the time I bought a pack which was bigger in size so I wouldn't grow out of it too quick.

It is an amazing feature to have an adjustable shoulder strap for height; now being 25, I am going on another hiking trip with some friends and this pack still fits me beautifully (I am 6'1"). Very durable with very well made zippers as I have used it for intense hiking and canoe trips and still works perfectly today.

This bag easily fits all the equipment you would need for a typical camping trip: sleeping bag compartment, mattress pad goes on the back easily with build on straps, tents, stoves, clothes. There're compartments for everything! This bag is also very comfortable to wear, which is a must if you are going to be trekking for extended periods of time.

To sum up, this is a very well thought-out pack. Very comfortable. Very practical. Very durable. I would recommend this pack to anyone in an instant.

Summary

Great pack for extended hikes. Two huge pockets on both sides. Adjustable Thoracic Pad so it fits your back perfectly. Sleeping bag fits in the bottom nicely. Huge zippers #10. Divider shelf inside separates compartments.

Drawbacks: No outside water bottle holders. All kinds of loops on the back for lashing and accessory attachment.

If you can get your hands on one of these (because it's discontinued) Get One!! I picked this one up for dirt cheap. A+

Summary

I generally have a hard time fitting a pack to my six foot plus frame, but the fit of the Pacific Crest has served me well. The pack has a multitude of lash points, daisy chain and a well padded back panel.

The shoulder straps and waistbelt offer adequate comfort for medium to heavy loads. This top loader's sleeping bag compartment is also an added convenience. The dual pockets on the back provide handy storage for frequently used items like waterbottles or a shell.

I am very pleased with this pack and highly recommend it for 3-4 day trips!
