Recent Overnight Pack (35-49L) Reviews

rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Osprey Stratos 34

Incredibly comfortable pack for long day hikes. Superb quality, but with bad pocket design. I've used this pack for nearly four years now. It's my everyday pack for work as well as long day hikes.   Comfort and Suspension: The suspension system is unbelievable, and even in its maximum load, it makes the weight disappear. I can snugly fit the pack to my back, thus it eliminates any momentum while moving. I experienced no hot spots or too much friction on the waist belt. It's relatively ventilated… Full review

Arc'teryx Aerios 45

This is an exceptional pack for burly day hikes all the way to four-night warm weather backpacking. It provides excellent functionality combined with superior organization and user-friendliness. I purchased this pack specifically for the 11-mile, there-and-back Kalalau Trail, along Kauai’s Na Pali Coast. It was perfect. -Note the basic backpack sack combined with the multi-pocketed shoulder straps- Shoulder strap pockets and sternum strap design To prepare for my trip to paradise I used the Aerios… Full review

Osprey Exos 48

Well thought out pack. Absolute improvement on previous versions. I wish I could review this pack in detail. The fact is I'll probably never end up using it. I ended up getting another pack that is even lighter and assuming it works out, I'll not see a need to ever use this pack. But I did want to touch on the quality of what I see. These packs are about the highest quality I have ever seen. All stitching and seams are almost as perfect as they can be. With this pack Osprey has added features that… Full review

Osprey Exos 38

Best lightweight backpacking pack I've used. Definitely recommend for lightweight packing, for those who are not into ultralight backpacking and comfort is still important. Do not recommend for people packing heavier loads. I have definitely found that packing >30 lbs significantly and negatively affects comfort. Normally, my total pack weight is somewhere between 24-28 lbs, food and water included. Fit: 5/5 stars, excellent fit. I am a woman 5'7", 135 lbs. I bought the pack when it was "unisex"… Full review

Mountain Equipment Tupilak 37+

Very lightweight and simple pack designed for climbers and alpinists, but also suitable for weight-conscious backpackers as well as backcountry skiers. The ME Tupilak is classified as a climbing pack, but I successfully used it in long distance backpacking trips (or ultralight if you want).  So I’m not going to deep dive in a full review as others did already a great job, but I’ll concentrate on specific points relative to my usage. The ME capacity is 37L expandable to around 42 thanks to the… Full review

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
