Comments about Sierra Designs Revival 65 Pack - 2012 Closeout:
This pack was a great deal and turned out to be a great pack. The suspension is novel, it only contacts your hips/lumbar area and your upper back/shoulder blades. That means in the middle, your back doesn't touch, and doesn't get hot or sweaty. I was worried if I was leaning over a lot, curving my spine, it would make contact and cause problems, but I had no issue. And it is pretty high tech, I think that is real carbon fiber and well designed aluminum. The hip belt is pretty good, I think a solid single piece foam belt might be better but I was comfortable enough. The pockets on the hip belt were great, the packing system worked well, I liked the back pocket/access to the inside, even though I didn't think I would use it.
Basically, this pack has all the things I wanted (solid suspension, outside mesh pockets for wet gear, hip belt pockets for camera, lash points and buckles for bulky gear/trekking poles, and robust build) and lacks all the things I don't need (sleeping bag compartment, too many pockets, all adding up to unnecessary weight). It is simple, solid, and looks durable.
I tried it out at Alpine Lakes Wilderness, taking it up and down Aasgard pass, and it performed just fine. For the price, this is hard to beat. I would say the quality of engineering are on par with and comparable to Osprey. Lighter and less loaded than a Gregory. And appears generally higher in quality than REI packs (my last pack was an REI Flash, and the waste belt separated from the frame while I was climbing over a fallen tree)
Oh, and the bottle opener is kinda cool, but I think it will be coming off the pack and staying at home.
