Organization

When dayhikes get gear intensive, we reach for this biggie, which has enough pockets (including a padded laptop/hydration sleeve that’s accessible via a backpanel zipper) to keep even the fussiest among us happy. “The lid compartment’s accessory panel kept my birding scope handy, but let me tuck away things that I didn’t need,” said one tester after nine hikes in Jasper National Park.

Durability

The 600-denier, PU-coated ripstop packbag didn’t show any scuffing after more than 100 miles of trail. High-wear areas are reinforced with 840-denier ballistic polyester, which thwarted water and rock.

Comfort

A corrugated foam backpanel and lightly padded mesh hipbelt support 25 pounds easily. The shoulder straps and hipbelt are both perforated, enhancing breathability. Bonus: The hipbelt tucks away when you don’t need it. Gripe: Testers wished for load lifters to balance the pack’s weight and secure it to their backs.
