Eagle Creek Backcountry Guide

rated 4.0 of 5 stars

The Backcountry Guide has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best overnight packs for 2022.

I am currently a high school senior, and about three years ago I bought a 2800 c.i. Backcountry Guide pack to replace the many crappy Jansport bags I had destroyed over the years. I needed a pack that I could use for both school and for hiking and short overnight trips, and this pack has proven itself an excellent all around pack. It is very ruggedly built, with the only downside being that the pack, shoulder straps, and hip belt are one integral unit. This pack has seen some pretty heavy use, from lugging around heavy textbooks to cross country skiing on Mt. Hood to climbing St. Helens. Another great use for this pack is for biking. The excellent compression and lumbar straps make it very stable on your back, and it will not slide forward on steep downhills. I highly recommed this pack to anyone in the market for a good rucksack, but keep in mind that it is not meant for extreme climbing, as it lacks an independent suspension system.
