Read More This is a comfortable pack with you the right amount of pockets and straps. Some can be confusing but this one is easy to fill, adjust and use. Love the padded straps. I have no complaints with the pack and highly recommend it. And it was priced right!!!
Jan 9, 2016Savannah Sam's reviewThis is one great pack! It held all my food and gear for a 4 day hike along the Foothills Trail in SC. Very easy to access buried items and the shoulder straps were supreme.Love the pack
Jan 8, 2016Quality backpackNice pack for the price. Tons of pockets! I've only had a chance to take it out one time so far but it seemed to hold up to my abuse well.

Read More I bought this pack several years ago and put it through the wringer. It was always incredibly comfortable, and it stood up to years of abuse getting tossed in and out of canoes in the Boundary Waters and hauling loads in the Appalachians. No matter how much weight I carried, the pack felt great. And its construction is pretty bomber - this thing can really take a beating. I lightened my load a lot over the years and switched to a GoLite Jam 50 (a wonderful pack). In an effort to clear up space and get some cash, I sold this pack. Now, a year and a half later, I have some heavy-duty winter trips in the hopper, as well as a planned 8-day mountain trip in the spring. Needing a larger pack that can carry heavy loads again, I never considered buying another pack. Now I am on my second Crestrail, and I'm just as happy as I was with my older model.

Read More I am a beginner and this was my choice, I have to say I love it, I got mine at the REI garage sale, it is overall light weight and held all that I needed it to even the things I had no use for, so I could have cut some weight, it has lots of pockets and easy access points, I had my tent and tarp and small tripod chair at the bottom of the straps and I placed my sleeping pad at the top where the top of the pack extends, there is a strap to hold it down, there was a place for everything, the only thing I wish was different was the access to the water reservoir inside the pack, besides that everything else is great, I thought it was the pack causing pain on my hips but it turned out to be the belt I had on my shorts, the pack was pressing the belt into my hips causing me discomfort, I guess that was a rookie mistake, next trip I'll wear clothes that don't need a belt, I have the blue 70 crestrail I love the color and the pack itself.

Read More I have been a member of REI for almost 45 years and have backpacked thousands of miles. I recently replaced an old pack with this one and was disappointed enough with one small detail that I could only give it 3 stars. Specifically, the waist belt on virtually all packs have a shaped hip belt with a crease or indentation around the inside of the pad which nestles around the top and bottom of the hip bones. This tends to keep the belt from shifting down. This pack has a smooth, non shaped pad on the hip belt which tends to slide down over the hip bones, necessitating overly tightening the belt above the waist in hopes it will settle in the right spot. This one small detail keeps a good pack from being a great one. NOTE to REI: If you redesign the inside of this belt and make it available, I will gladly purchase one and up my rating to 5 stars. By the way, it's been great dealing with you guys for 45 years.

Read More Took this pack over 115 miles of mountainous terrain. Loved it. averaged around 45lbs total pack weight. my only beef was the way you have to put your water bladder inside the pack (other companies make the bladder sleeve on the outside). This means that you just need to fill and pack the water bladder first...then everything else goes in...every morning.
Sep 28, 2015Very Good, but…Very Good. It is almost aligned it have features that sought. But,Structure of the lid is superior Crestrail48. It was perfect if it was the lid of the same structure as Crestrail48.
