Gregory Alpinisto 35

My go-to pack for winter day hikes. My first contact with Gregory Alpinisto was back in 2018 by a mountaineering instructor that swore by this pack for its custom fit and versatility. He was not wrong. The yellow option looked good! The pack comes in three sizes (S/M-M-M/L) depending on the back length. I measured my spine before ordering the medium size and length fits my back perfectly. Glove friendly zippers all around. The packs weighs 1.435 grams without the bivy foam pad (adds 30-50 grams… Full review

Osprey Talon 33

It's light. Juuuuust big enough for overnight or a few days if you go ultralight. This is for the men's version. Mine fits 5.8, should go shorter > taller, so there you go ladies. Great daypack. Great ski/board pack. No complaints. Got all yer belzNwhistles without extra weight (key clip, full pockets, compression, bottle sides, that kinda thing.) Comfortable as any pack I've owned w day loads. Ventilation solid but not superior. I can't speak to this backpacking (really no reason not to use… Full review

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Southwest

Spacious and waterproof bag for ultralight hiking. The thing is so light and works great! I love the outside pockets and fold-close top to keep any water out. This backpack is AMAZING. It's CRAZY light It's waterproof (so you don't need a separate backpack cover) All my gear for a week-long backpacking trip fit perfectly The weight was well distributed, but my left hip did become a little sore after a long 10+ mile day If you want to get into ultralight backpacking, this is one of the best packs… Full review

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

Waymark EVLV

The Waymark EVLV is a functional ultralight backpack, with plenty of bells and whistles, despite its UL nature. It's frameless and hip-beltless, designed for loads under 20 lbs. My favorite features are the load-lifters, Xpac material, and deep and functional side pockets. I've used mine for several thru-hikes now, so it's showing a good bit of wear, particularly in the shoulder straps (padding is very compressed) and the back pocket mesh. Waymark has made many updates to the material and design… 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
