Ozark Trail Atka 28L

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an incredible deal, but it has been discontinued! Still available online, clearanced! I am a 6-foot tall male, weighing 185 lbs and it fits just as well as other day packs I've tried. This is almost a copy of the famed REI Flash 18 or 20L packs that cost three times this much This pack fits me fine and is very comfortable for lightweight loads. I use it as a day pack when doing multi-day hikes. It's light enough that I don't mind putting it in my backpack and it takes up almost no space… Full review

The North Face Men's Surge

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very good functional and well organized laptop and overnight pack for short and extended trips. Features multiple dedicated fleece-lined compartments including laptop, tablet, and documents sleeves, pockets for sunglasses, and phone and a padded top handle. I recently purchased this pack and took it on a business trip to Japan. There was enough storage area to pack my 15-inch laptop, accessories, sunglasses, phone, wallet, notebook, toiletries, hat, and one set of clothes. The shoulder straps are… Full review

Gregory Baltoro 65

rated 5 of 5 stars I LOVE this pack. Though the older version, the pocket management, versatility, and especially the stability just shine. I got caught in 'pack out' rainstorm on a three-day trip. I was amazed that for its trimness, all the gear I needed fit in just fine. I think I was packing 45lbs? and that was with probably excessive amount of food. It held my BIG 3, (Kelty Salida2) plus my Katadyn Hiker Pro filter, MSR DragonFly, 1L of fuel, Primus ETA 1L pot. It poured the last night (was forecasted) and I knew… Full review

Gossamer Gear Gorilla Ultralight

rated 5 of 5 stars Best bag I've owned. This is the best through bag I've ever owned. Obviously, it's ultralight, but it's still a great price point. With the rolltop, I'm able to fit what I need for a seven-day through hike and have room for my bear canister. It sits perfectly on my back and shoulders (it comes in different sizes of bag and hip belt to ensure that it fits correctly). It hasn't torn for me despite pretty heavy use, although I've read in other reviews that rough handling means it might tear if caught… Full review

RōM Outdoors RōM Pack

rated 2.5 of 5 stars This pack seems to work better as a “tailgating” pack rather than a camping pack. It is overall big and bulky. It transitions pretty smoothly after a few times but originally it was a little awkward. A 3-in-1 system, the RōM Pack is a backpack you can fully transform into either a wearable poncho with a hood or a blanket that’s soft on one side and water resistant on the other. I received this product and I brought it on a campout when I planned to “cowboy camp” and then I broke one of… Full review

REI Men's Trail 40

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Awesome, affordable, versatile, and tough. This is an awesome and very versatile pack. I took it into the Washington Enchantments in 11/2018 and couldn't be more pleased. I was in the military for a number of years. During that time I learned to live out of a pack frequently and for extended periods of time. Probably the best weekend pack I could ask for. The only improvement I would ask for is a detachable "brain" or lid. It would allow JUST enough extra space for the little things while allowing… Full review

Osprey Tempest 30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Chose as my first pack. I purchased this as my first pack, as I was looking for something that I could use not only as a daypack, but potentially for an overnight trip. I'm still relatively new to the whole backpacking scene, so it will be interesting to see if it works for me! I have yet to load it all up for any trip, but with some weight in it, it seems to distribute it pretty well and doesn't aggravate my bad shoulders! Overall I think it is really well made and I love the color! Full review

Coleman Kwanzan X40

rated 5 of 5 stars Best pack I've ever owned!! I've used this for the last nine years on dozens of packtrips/hunts. I love the simplicity of the single buckle to close the top and also the center waist adjustments straps...can adjust easily with one hand. The material is waterproof and also heavy duty. The next thing I really love about this pack is the top drawcord cinch section at the top. It's easy to open and close and the best part is I can store extra stuff if I really need to hold a lot of items. Although It's… Full review

Tashev Kentaurus 80+15

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good quality, pretty light. But some strange quirks. To be clear: this is about the pre-2019 pack. The picture here is the 2019 version. It is made in Bulgaria and currently costs 112 euros. The 2019 version differences as far I can see: 200 grams lighter, has two axe loops instead of one, two extra eyes on front, a different setup of the side compression straps, and a different way of tucking away the front compression straps. This is a multipart review. First, I will discuss the pack as is. But… Full review
