Stickied cause I felt like it, along with the Post your blade thread.

Osprey really seem to be top notch backpacks. Every one I look at just looks perfectly designed and well thought out. I have mostly thought highly of High Sierra backpacks, but my buddy had 2 straps on his break (chest strap and an accessory strap), he did have the kitchen sink packed into a 63L though.. so maybe it was over it's designed weight limit.

It could have been overburdened.. but even so packs should be able to go above their rated capacity without breaking.
Most likely what also contributed was he didn't have a good fitting pack. A good fit is crucial.
High Sierra makes some decent stuff, no personal experience with their packs myself, but then again I also haven't heard any rave reviews either.

Osprey is just totally solid, they've been in the game for a while and they make some killer packs. Same with Gregory.
I don't think I've ever seen a bad review for a Gregory or Osprey pack. My first pack was a Gregory and I loved the shit out of that thing.
I would also highly, highly, highly recommend Granite Gear packs. I :heart: my Nimbus Meridian.

Arc'teryx is worth a mention as well. They make top of the line stuff. It's also pretty expensive.
But if you are a kitchen sink kind of guy, their packs are designed for massive loads. And they are practically bombproof.
this one, for example, or this.
As you can see, they are not for people on a tight budget, or ultralight hikers.
For me personally, ~250 to maybe about 300 is about the most I am comfortable spending on a really good quality pack that I expect to last for many many years.
Unless I was like climbing Mt. Everest or something..

I have a super cheap Wal Mart/Coleman backpack that works ok for me.  Told myself once I wore some holes in it or ruined some of the zippers, I'd upgrade to a "real" backpacker's pack, but this thing has lasted 2 summers so far and really stood up to the abuse.  Not bad for $75, I feel like I got my money's worth a long time ago.

cheap and heavy (no thorns/twigs/zombies are going to rip through my pack)
guess i could remove the heavy material and attach whatever however to it

i've a kelty coyote 4750.  going on 6 years old.  been good so far.  can get everything i need in for 3-5 days easy.  only downside, for me, is there's too much zipper-space on the outside of the pack.  someday i'll upgrade and use this for a bug out bag

I just got an Osprey Atmos 65 for this season...already has some miles on it :-)

I also have a Gossamer Gear G4

A no name climbing pack

And my old school coleman external frame that is actually really comfy with a light load.

Oh, and a bunch of day packs of course

I just picked up a Sandpiper of California Long Range Bugout Bag



Its way bigger in reality than it looked in the pictures to me. 6,840 Cubic Inches. This thing is a beast. Ridiculous capacity.
I wanted another pack to counter my lightweight (3,800 CI) backpacking pack. Something massive with lots of pockets, for my ultimate bug out bag. Something more militaryish than lightweight backpacker.

This thing filled that niche perfectly. 1000 denier cordura, double and triple stitched everywhere.. rugged as a motherfucker
you can just tell the material is hardcore and high quality, this thing will take some abuse.
More pouches, pockets, organizers, internal straps, nooks and crannies than I know what to do with!
A little bit heavier than I am used to (8lbs- just the pack), but I wanted something bulletproof and able to carry SHIT TONS of gear, which this thing carries fucking TONS.
Almost double the capacity of my other pack which I thought was huge, and a lot more options for keeping things compartmentalized and better organized.

I'm super impressed so far. Carries a heavy load surprisingly well

That thing looks beastly! Nice to know if some sort of apocolyptic scenario ever takes place, you can probably fit enough peanut butter and dried milk in that thing to last a year!

Tenzing TZ6000

Just ordered it a few days as a hunting bag.  No more blood in the regular packs.

Here's my Gregory Teton circa 1997. this pack has well over 1000 miles on it, and still going strong. Well over packed for a three-nighter in the Trinity alps.

I use this osprey exos. Its pretty light and the net on the back makes it comfortable to carry.



(doesn't have food in it so top is saggy)

I see you take a pole with you has well. I use a Shimano CI4 stradic and 3 piece ugly stick, it packs nicely.

I usually carry a 4 piece 5wt. Reddington fly rod with me. Or a fenwich spinning rod matched with a shimano sedona for pitching spinners & spoons on lakes. I'm trying to stick with fly-fishing lately tho..

I got an Eastpak book-bag type backpack. I've had it since I was in high school and I think it cost like $25-$30 back then. It's got 2 zipper pouches on the outside for extra stuff that are perfect for the small stuff like snake bite kits and sandwiches.

Here is my Granite Gear Nimbus Meridian. This was on the approach to the Appalachian Trail in the Chattahootchee National Forest in Georgia. She was carrying probably about thirty two lbs at this point. Not very well packed I might add--I was still getting used to carrying that much weight. But, like Shroomism, I love this pack. Very solid, well made piece of equipment






and yes, that's a bike horn...
