Great entry level backpack
The best part is the integrated sleeping bag pouch. Overall, this is a great backpack. It is surprisingly light. The varied compartments hold alot. I just took it on my first hike and loved the fact that I could carry everything I needed in such an easy fashion. It did rain, so I used the rainflap and it worked well to protect the contents of the bag. This is definitley a backpack I would recommend to a weekend hiker such as myself.

very good purchase
well, let me start off by saying that i'm super pleased with the affordability, comfort, durability and most of all the awesome speediness of recieving my shipment. Tha High Sierra 65 pack is an amazing product. Good storage space. i've managed to pack all my survival gear. including a telescoping shark fishing pole/reel, an axe, dry foods, fishing tackle, sleeping sack and pillow, changes of clothes/shoes, bugaboo cookware set, bushbuddy ultra stove and a 12x12 kelty tarp with four stake-ropes and two lightweight prop-up poles. all of which fit very nicely into the 65 sack and made for an amazing adventure. and don't forget the rain-fly tucked nicely away in the bottom of the pack. good idea!!! thanks altrec for accomidating me to meet my needs.

Great 1st Time Backpack
This backpack has been comfortable, durable, and a real joy to own. I have used it over twenty times so it has definitly been worth the money. I imagine it has 5 more years left in it before I buy a better one. It has plenty of pockets, is rather adjustable, and has left me with not much to complain about other than cheap plastic buckles one of which has broke. With a lifetime warranty on the product where can you go wrong?!
