Asymmetric 42+8

rated 4 of 5 stars The pack fits wonderfully well and is well adjustable the straps are comfortable but thin and could use more padding. They work, but they could use some improvement. I am 5'5" and 130 pounds and it fits me comfortably and can carry 35-pound loads, but not more without being uncomfortable. I bought this pack because I was sizing down from my 65 liter Osprey and its worked out well. It holds all my gear enough for three days (minus sleeping bag, I don't use one). After a fifteen-mile day on the PCT… Full review

Hyper Air 14+3

rated 5 of 5 stars Best value in a 14 liter pack. Best venting of any pack. Light and tough. Very comfortable and adjustable. I hike and mountain bike with this pack, even skied with it. A bargain at twice the price. Fits well and is the most comfortable I've tried. Best venting packs on the market. Never a problem with capacity. Had this pack for about 8 years, still not a mark on it, tough. Lots of use. Holds 100 liter bladder. has this for $37.58. Full review

Campo XT 5

rated 4 of 5 stars The Campo XT5 seems to be a quality tent that should last for a good number of years. I just received my Campo XT5 from Campsaver after much thought. I have camped for 50 years and very much enjoy it. My wife does not because of the inconveniences my smaller mountaineering tents pose for her.  Basically if I am going to get her to join me on outings I needed a bigger tent. I also considered options from Big Agnes, Kelty, Marmot, REI, and Redvers. For comparison, my other tents include an original… Full review

Rock Ultralight 25

rated 4 of 5 stars If you're looking for a near-gossamer day/one night pack that's built like a tank, stop. I found it for you. The VauDe Rock Ultralight 25 is top-loading, accepts a bladder, and has a removable, molded plastic back plate. Plenty big enough for a warm weather overnight, or a cold weather day pack/peak bag. It's also got a smart compression system; a thin cord that runs down the sides of the pack, with smooth plastic runners that allow the cord to be removed. You weight weenies oughta like that. The… Full review

Versametric Proof 65+10

rated 4 of 5 stars A good pack for a weekend trip with a few cool features like the pivoting waist belt and shoulder adjustment latch on the waist belt. The long zip means you can access your gear easily (if not in a pack-liner), but the lack of side or back pockets may annoy you on longer expeditions. I am 6'2" and the adjustable shoulder straps are on the longest setting. That said I find the pack comfortable (4/5), and has the benefit of me being able to lend it to a friend and they can adjust it to their desired… Full review

A Peek Back, Inside Jeff Lowe's Pack
