Gregory Paragon 68

I personally will be using this for scouting and hunting purposes, which is not the usual backpack for that, but it is very comfortable and I did not have a problem with anything. Honestly I have nothing bad to say about this backpack. First of all, I do a lot of hiking, scouting, hunting, and fishing; I enjoy the outdoors a lot. I took this backpack for several scouts before hunting season starts and I am impressed on how this backpack is so comfortable. The shoulder area has padding and keeps… Full review

Gossamer Gear Mariposa 60

I would not be shopping at Gossamer. Customer service alone is a deterrent. There are much better companies to deal that are worthy of our support. The company may have good bags, but unfortunately the service is horrible. They don’t take responsibility for their products. I spent a long time trying to figure out what bag to get, and decided on the Mariposa. Tired it on via a couple of friends and did extensive research. When I received it the web strap on the belt was 1-inch, which is not what… Full review

Gossamer Gear Mariposa 60

This is a great lightweight pack for loads up to 30 pounds. First of all, this is my favorite backpack. I bought this pack because it weighs in at about 2 pounds and carries loads up to 30 pounds comfortably. One of the best features is the long "quiver" pocket on the side. It is a great way to carry longer items like a rolled up tarp, 2-liter water bag, camp saws, or survival knife. The stretchable mesh front pocket just continues to swallow gear. To keep weight down, the side and front pockets… Full review

Gregory Optic 58

The Optic 58 is billed by Gregory as being “[f]or ultralight backpacking with the support to keep you comfortable and moving quick.” While not the lightest option available for the volume or recommended load it can carry, the under three-pound Optic is a mass-market pack that is light enough to merit consideration as a lightweight pack option while providing—Gregory claims—”additional capacity [for longer distances] without compromising your ultralight priorities.” The Optic is a comfortable,… Full review

Deuter Futura 50 + 10 Vario

Great backpack with useless hip belt suspension. I used to be a huge fan of Deuter's products but I'm very disappointed in this backpack. The hip belt is poorly designed and it doesn't transfer the load properly. It lays too low (on the upper part of my butt) even if I tighten the belt very hard. The lumbar support doesn't exist practically. This makes the backpack very uncomfortable. Otherwise the backpack is great. It''s not so lightweight, but it's durable and has so many options. It has many… Full review

Granite Gear Crown V.C. 60

Very nice lightweight pack with plenty of room, at a reasonable price. I had been wanting to shed some weight from my pack for some time, and previous attempts involved carrying a smaller capacity pack, which isn't always practical. When I had the opportunity to acquire a like-new used Granite Gear Crown VC 60, I grabbed it. I'm glad I did. At 34 oz (29 oz without the internal frame), it's about 2 lbs lighter than my other similarly-sized pack. The VC 60 may not be able to handle as much weight… Full review

Teton Sports Scout 3400

Decent pack. On my second as a zipper broke, great customer service. I've had this pack since 2015(ish). It's held up well. Have put many miles on it, but unfortunately on the last trip one of the side pocket zippers broke. I contacted Teton and they asked for a few pics and proof of purchase. They sent a new one within a week. New one hasn't been trail yet, but looks to be good to go! Full review

Six Moon Designs Minimalist

The Six Moon Designs Minimalist is a backpack engineered to let you change configurations easily to match your changing needs. The frame and hip belt are entirely removable. You can select shoulder straps or a vest harness at time of purchase which can be swapped easily as well if you purchase both. The Minimalist is best for Light/Ultra Light use with total loads below 35 lbs. It remained functionally useful and comfortable with loads approaching 50lbs. Its comfortable ride makes it great for day-after-day… Full review

Fjallraven Kajka 65

This pack is what I use as a Wilderness Guide in Tasmania. It is durable, adjustable, and holds more gear than it rightly should; all while transferring the load to the large hip belt in a comfortable way. Great for heavy loads. The Fjallraven Kaja 65l is a pack built with old-school workmanship and new-school features. I chose this for my work as a Wilderness Guide due to the adjustability and durability; although it is quite heavy compared to most packs. This pack is designed as a load hauler. Full review
