Fifty-Two 80

rated 1.5 of 5 stars After 27,000 miles with a variety of backpacks, I've had no problems till now. The shoulder strap twists out of its flat position unto its edge, pressing into the chest like a rope. The force actually pulls the clip of the sternum strap off its track. Very uncomfortable. Customer Service appears silent additionally on its quality control. After 27,000 miles with a variety of backpacks, I've had no problems till now. The 5280 looks like a luscious lollypop and yet has a critical design flaw. The… Full review

Flatiron 42

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Salute version was an outstanding daypack and I wanted to try the Flatiron 42, and I am happy to report it didn’t fail me.

I have a medium length torso and the pack fits very well. Easy… Full review

Salute 34

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This daypack has many features that give you the versatility to store your gear in many configurations for your next adventure. If this is your first pack I would think hard about buying it. I feel this pack is not for everyone. I like to bushwhack and follow animal trails, which sometimes have limited space areas.

Fifty-Two 80

rated 5 of 5 stars I just bought this pack and it has everything I need and more for a 12-day outing. I'm packing with 11 Scouts at Philmont Scout Ranch in N.M. We are hiking over 70 miles. This pack is light weight and will allow me to carry someone elses gear if they go down. This pack is light weight and roomy. Easy access to all of my essentials and first aid stuff used for Philmont Scout Ranch. Large enough for 12 days of camping and hiking. Great product. I would recommend it to anybody going out for four days… Full review
