Recent Weekend Pack (3,000 - 4,499 cu in) Reviews

Osprey Atmos 65

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Osprey Atmos 65 is great for long distance backpacking. It can hold all you need and still be light. I highly recommend the pack. My pack fits really well. I've used it for several trips of varied days and it has been even better than expected.  I have had no problems adjusting it out no matter how much weight I carry. I felt no discomfort at all even when I carried 45 lbs (including 4 liters of H2O). It felt like I was carrying under 30lbs (compared to other packs I've used). The capacity… Full review

Teton Sports Scout 3400

rated 4 of 5 stars I purchased this pack for my first 3-day, 2-night, 22-mile hike. Great pack for the money! I believe, for the money, you can't beat this pack. I have done several one-day 8 milers and one 2-night, 3-day 22 miler. I have a 5-day, 4-nighter planned and feel sure it will handle the load. My only concern is the material seems a little cheap and it may not be a long-lasting pack, but I gave $60 for it. I believe I've already got my money out of it. I would definitely recommend this pack to a beginner. Full review

ULA Equipment Ohm 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars Very Light, functional, no-frills, up to 4-day pack (three days with bear canister). I highly recommend it, very comfortable with adjustable length and load lifters on top and belt. Clever bottle holder elastic loops on shoulder straps free up side pockets for more gear. My go-to pack. It fits me just fine (5'10") with the adjustable back length, load lifters, and adequate padding on belt/shoulder makes a very comfortable (and light) pack ~1# 12 oz empty. I've been on two short warm weather trips,… Full review

Osprey Exos 58

rated 5 of 5 stars I took this pack on the Boulder Mail Trail from Escalante, Utah, to Boulder, Utah. Three nights, lots of climbing into and out of slickrock canyons. It performed like a champ. I am in love with my Exos 58. It is perfect for multi-day trips.  I try to go light verging on ultralight. It easily swallowed my Backcountry Bed sleeping bag and my Flashlight 2 tent and a Bear Vault 500 with plenty of room for everything else. I think the tendency might be to overload this pack. It is probably best under… Full review

REI Men's Crestrail 48

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a good little pack that is perfect for filling the gap between your small overnight pack, and your week + pack. It is lightweight, and has well thought out, usable features, without the clutter of too many. I recommend this pack to anyone that needs an inexpensive mid sized pack, or wants a lightweight pack that isn't stripped of features. I'm not sure what the picture on this page is, but...... this is what my Crestrail 48 packs look like. The Crestrail 48 is the little brother of the Crestrail… Full review

Gregory Cairn 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Waist belt moves with you as you walk, preventing waist bruising when properly fit. Excellent for weekend hikes. Built to compliment a woman's frame. Bought this pack because I am a small framed woman. Pack fits nicely. Contours the back very well. The waist belt moves with you as you walk instead of remaining stationary as other packs do. Helps prevent hip bruising and soreness. Three point access makes getting into the pack while on the trail very easy without having to remove the pack from your… Full review

Gregory Contour 60

rated 5 of 5 stars Best fitting pack I have ever owned. This pack really works for me. I do a lot of one-night and two-night trips in NH with my kids, which usually implies carrying some extra stuff. What makes this pack great... the shape of the back and hip belt put the weight on my hips better than any pack I've owned before. The back curves in just where I want it to; the S in the shoulder straps curve in just where I want them to, and the hip belt sits on both hips even when I'm scrambling. I've never had a pack… Full review

Osprey Volt 60

rated 4 of 5 stars Great entry level pack that offers the same quality as the more pricier models. Not as many pockets as other packs. It's an Osprey pack, with a lower price tag.  Same great warranty, durability, and quality design and construction. Torso length adjustment was easiest of any pack I've seen, and this is truly a one size fits all that will adjust in seconds. It's the adult pack my 12-year old gets to borrow for camp because of this. Biggest problem was fitting gear in, as it is a bit narrow. Volume… Full review

ULA Equipment Circuit

rated 5 of 5 stars I would wholly recommend this pack for the light backpacker or ultralight thru hiker who values comfort/fit, quality and versatility. Everything you need and nothing you don't. Perhaps the biggest selling points of this pack are its fit and comfort, which are superb. It comes in different torso sizes and then you add the appropriate hip belt size. For example, I am 6'3", 230 lbs, 35" waist, so I fit best in a large Circuit with medium hip belt. Meanwhile, the minimalist suspension does its job… Full review
