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

Osprey Atmos 50 AG

rated 4 of 5 stars The Osprey Atmos 50 AG is a comfortable pack to wear with a load, but I wish it had sleeping pad straps. As I get older, and my knees and back remind me that they're there now and then, I'm starting to look at my base weight more seriously. I decided it was time to replace my old EMS Summit 5000 pack.  Not only is it pretty heavy, but it has a huge volume, which encourages me to throw more stuff in than I really need.  As I started researching packs, the Osprey Atmos 50 AG caught my eye.  50… Full review

Gossamer Gear Mariposa Ultralight

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Overall this is a really enjoyable ultralight backpack. It's light and one of the most roomy backpacks on the market. I can easily squeeze more gear than I can carry into the main compartment. I'm about a 150 pound guy and the medium pack fits me quite nicely and comfortable to about 40 lbs. My girlfriend is a petite 105 and the pack is even comfortable to her and manageable with a 25-lb load. The more weight you load in, the more it tends to tug on your shoulders, but if you pack light you won't… Full review

ULA Equipment Circuit

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The harness design is extremely comfortable. The hip pockets are extremely roomy and very useful. Overall the pack is as good or better than anything on the market in functionality and weight for the money. I am 5'6" and the pack fits perfectly. I experimented with several other options before selecting the ULA. Capacity is very good for light packers up to a week hike or so. Not a lot of individual pockets for organizing little items, but that is not a problem for me. Construction seems excellent,… Full review

Mammut Heron Light 70+15

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, great options, and weight distribution. This is a great pack that I came across while surfing Trailspace! And it was such a great deal that I pulled the trigger being a fan of the Mammut line of products. Overall I think this pack competes with Gregory and Osprey in many categories. Fit The pack comes with a 4 level back adjustment that helps adjust fit according to height. I found this a little cumbersome to change and after several tries I realized that the initial setting was perfect… Full review
