Osprey Atmos 65 AG

rated 5 of 5 stars Amazing pack that feels like nothing at all. This is a great short hike pack (2-4 days) unless you are truly an ultra-light hiker then you could squeeze more days out of it. The AG suspension and mesh is amazing for my build (5'9" 205lbs). I wish we had a pack system like this in the military for carrying heavy loads. Overall its very comfortable even without using the load lifters appropriately (I hardly ever adjust these mostly because I forget). I like the compartments, but I'm a pocket guy and… Full review

Osprey Exos 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent lightweight pack (not ultra light), great for weekend, multi-day, and through-hiking. Would definitely recommend assuming you can get the correct fit for your torso. Have been backpacking for over 50 yrs., mostly high Sierras.  Male, 165 lbs.  Excellent pack. Had the previous version and put 52 lbs in/on it for the JMT (enough for a 10 day stretch). This model has a bunch of upgraded aspects. The older version top pack was difficult to detach. I sewed small quick release buckles on so… Full review

Osprey Exos 58

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great all-around backpack if you don't overload it. With less than 35lbs of well-chosen gear, it works for both weekend and long haul trips, and you can manage 40lbs for a couple of days. I'm a 5'7", 145 pound, 63-year-old woman who works in the backcountry in summer, usually for 6-8 days at a time. My pack has to be light enough to let me move quickly, but big enough to carry my personal and work gear. I can't carry the 55 pound loads that I did when I was younger. After a year of frequent… Full review

ULA Equipment Ohm 2.0

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, yet plenty of room for gear. Designed for comfort and durability. Unusual and useful ability to carry water bottles on shoulder straps. Exceptional hipbelt support and comfort. The ULA Ohm 2.0 is a smaller pack in the ULA line, yet has the hipbelt of some of the larger models allowing it to carry substantial weights.  The ULA hipbelts are top-of-the-line for comfort given their light weight. The Ohm 2.0 has provided plenty of space for 4-day backpacks for me with room to spare.  Its… Full review

Osprey Atmos 65 AG

rated 3 of 5 stars The revised Osprey Atmos AG 65 is a well-made pack that fixes many of the problems with previous models; however, the new edition of the pack is much heavier than earlier models. If the increased weight does not concern you then you will like the changes. All in all this is a robust pack that may no longer fit the needs of lightweight backpackers. I tried a size large pack; I weighed it at the local REI, and it weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces. Last year's model weighed 3 pounds 12 ounces on the same scale… Full review

ZPacks Arc Blast

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great UL pack that is smartly designed, comfortable within its load limits, customizable, and about as light as you will find in a framed midsized backpack. Cuben and carbon fiber construction keep the weight at around one pound. This is a review of the Zpacks Arc Blast backpack. I purchased one in late Spring 2014 and have had the opportunity to put a couple hundred miles on it by now. I am not associated with Zpacks in any way. This is probably the lightest framed mid-size backpack on… Full review

Gregory Triconi 60

rated 5 of 5 stars Best pack I have ever owned. Very well made, with many good features. Very comfortable. Easy to adjust. The zip out front facing water bottle pocket a plus. Plastic zipper attachments also very nice. Just a real good pack.  Full review

Osprey Volt 60

rated 5 of 5 stars Very versatile pack, excellent adjustable fit, nice mix of useful features, and light. I got this pack as a replacement for an Osprey Aether 60 that after many years of reliable use, finally succumbed during a night where busy large rodents sought salt and something to do at a camp up high last fall. Nary a strap was untouched, some severely, but I was able to complete the trip with shoulder straps hanging by threads, literally. The Volt is less expensive, notably lighter, and even more adjustable… Full review

Osprey Exos 58

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This is an excellent light pack for UL backpackers who can go for seven days with a starting load under 30 lbs (2014 model). This would make a great thru-hiker pack. I bought this pack to replace my aging REI Cruise UL 60 pack. I love the EXOS 58's comfort, even with 30 lbs. The mesh back panel rides very comfortably and is cooler by far than my mesh covered foam REI back panel.  Inside this single compartment pack is a small QR buckle to hold up your hydration bladder in its sleeve. Also there's… Full review
