Recent Overnight Pack (35-49L) Reviews

rated 4 of 5 stars
Karrimor Air Space 35+5

I used this pack to take my child backpacking and camping. Due to his age I carried almost all the shared gear. The pack held up well and distributed weight well. Love the look and feel of these bags. Can't wait to see how they hold up with moderate use. Plan to use each bag 6-8 times a year. Full review

Zpacks Arc Haul

The Arc Haul is a super light, nice pack, however it is a little fragile. The pack is light, super light, and the overall layout is really great, love the side pockets, upper pockets...heck the pack is pretty cool... However, on my last hike one of the rods that arc broke, and with a long hike the following weekend I'm out of luck, no chance I can get a replacement in time for the trip. I think there is a reason other manufacturers haven't gone with the arc design Full review

Gregory Citro 36 H2O

I'm a bit of a pack rat with packs. I love packs and bags. I've been known to buy one, use it, wear it out, and then just discard it for a younger model. Every so often though, I'll find one that I buy and... It gets used, worn out, repaired, and kept. My wife steals it. I use it for awhile and pass it down to my kids. I'm not sure where this pack fits in yet, but I'm definitely using it. My most common pack activities are: Biking or rucking to the store and filling it with groceries Rucking with… Full review

Gregory Citro 36 H2O

This is a good pack for day hikes and weekend trips. It has an excellent hydration system. It's well made and fits well, even for a tall person. Probably not good for multi-day backpacking trips. I gave this pack a solid workout this summer—hiking and camping in six National Parks and numerous National Forests, monuments and recreation areas, in 10 states, often at altitudes over 10,000 feet and temperatures over 90 degrees, during a three-week, 6,000-mile road trip in July 2020. Gregory’s… Full review

Osprey Exos 48

Great lightweight pack for overnights, or longer, if UL-savvy. I purchased the Exos 48 in 2015 and use it each year on summer overnight and somewhat longer trips where I can keep the load small and light. It weighs only 2.5 lbs with the lid attached. It's not designed to carry heavy loads, but what it does carry, it carries well. With clean lines, the pack has many features I find handy; none are superfluous. I have heard complaints about Osprey having omitted the small pockets on the waist and… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Prism Alpine Climbing Kit

The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Prism Alpine Kit consists of the Prism Pack, Prism Ice Screw Case, and Prism Crampon Bag, and retails for $475usd. All three products are made with a combination of DCF fabrics designed to give you durability where you need it, while saving weight elsewhere. I have reviewed all three items individually on their own merits (check out the individual reviews through the links below), so this review is to address them as a set. Prism Pack and Crampon Case  Prism Ice Screw… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear Prism Pack

The Hyperlite Mountain Gear Prism is a 40-liter alpine-focused pack with attachments designed to carry your axes, pickets, tools, crampons, screws, skis, etc. It carries heavy loads well, boasts a woven Dyneema face fabric on high wear areas so it's incredibly durable, and can be stripped down to be an ultralight climber's dream. Mountaineers, ski tourers, ice and rock climbers will all appreciate the level of design put into this pack. My one criticism is I am not a huge fan of the G hooks (not… Full review

Mystery Ranch Coulee 40

Excellent review. I agree almost completely with Andrew's assessment of the Coulee 40. This is a great overnight or weekend pack, depending on the amount of equipment you carry. I've had the Coulee 40 for only a short time, but it has all the same qualities that I've come to love from both Dana Gleason's companies, Dana Designs and Mystery Ranch. They all have a heritage of quality, excellent weight distribution harness and belt design, bulletproof stitching (despite being made overseas), and a… Full review

Mystery Ranch Coulee 40

The Coulee 40 could either be a really large daypack, think carry stuff for a small family, or serve you for overnights with lightweight gear. The two fiberglass stays help it carry quite a bit of weight comfortably, and the hip and lumbar pads are very good as well. The key feature that makes this backpack great is the three zippers that allow full access to everything. It's outstanding, my new favorite smaller backpack. BASIC DETAILS ABOUT THIS BACKPACK The Coulee 40 is a backpack from Mystery… Full review
