Rated 5 out of 5 by from A confidence booster to a beginning back packer The last time I went back packing I used a pack that was not fitted for me, but one that was just available. My hips hurt and though I enjoyed being in the outdoors, I was not sure that I could be comfortable. Well the REI Co-op Women's Trail 65 Pack changed that. With the adjustable back panel you can adjust the pack so that it sits on your hips just right and also get the shoulder straps to sit right on the shoulders. That doesn't seem really big, but it makes all the difference. The padded hip belt was wonderful. I carried my tent and all my gear in the pack and had enough room. I felt comfortable while hiking and it was so empowering to know I could do it, enjoy it and not feel pain at the end of hiking. The friend I went with was very surprised with how much I was able to fit inside of the pack and not have to strap things to the bottom or outside. I absolutely love the color of it. The material is very rugged yet the pack is lightweight. The pockets on the hip belt are easy to access with strong zippers. The netting on the water bottle pockets allow you to access your bottle and put it back while hiking. I love that it has the rain fly built right into the pack, though thankfully I did not need to use it yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comfortable! I bought this a month ago and absolutely love it! The padding is AMAZING and as a one size fits all bag, it adjusts really well to different bodies/ heights. It is simple, minimal and perfect for my multi-day trips & the included rain cover is the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of Room and Great Organization I took this pack on a two day trip. I loved how easy it was to adjust to fit my torso. The pack itself is well made and seems extremely durable. I didn't do any hard core hiking with it as I still consider myself a novice backpacker but I appreciated all the pockets and the ability to organize my stuff. The weight seemed to be easy to distribute and all in all, felt pretty good on my back. I'm a little short so the back of my head did kind of bump the top of the pack but my hair is short and it wasn't too much of a bother. I appreciate the fact that my back felt well ventilated. I like the trekking pole holders (probably my favorite feature) and I love the color. I'm looking forward to using it on longer treks as my skill level increases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pack boosts confidence on the trail! I recently took this attractive, well designed pack out for a weekend trek to the woods of southern Oregon. Our adventure included wading through creeks, scrambling over fallen trees, profusely sweating on hot and dusty trails and sleeping under huge canopies of trees. Every moment was worth it. Though my husband carried the tent we both slept in, I was able to fit all the essential goods and gear inside the pack without it feeling lopsided or bulging in all the wrong places. I had plenty of room to attach the tent underneath the pack with the handy built-in straps but he offered to carry it. Once everything was loaded and the pack was on my back, I went about adjusting straps to feel snug all around. The shoulder/chest straps/pads are comfortable and did not dig. It was also a terrific surprise to discover that I could even adjust the back panel of the pack to fit my torso length! How awesome is that? This ability truly made the pack MUCH more comfortable to wear and easier for me to maneuver variable terrain over longer periods of time. Other much appreciated attributes of the pack: - The convenient outer stash pocket (perfect for clothing layers + map). - Hip belt pockets (fit my phone, lip balm, snack bar and doggie treats). - A built-in whistle on the chest strap (just in case!) - Exterior hydration pouch accessibility (easier to get to). - Ventilated back column (to help keep one's back a bit cooler). - Built-in rain cover (peace of mind). - Optional sleeping bag storage divider (or more main compartment space) Now that this pack is in my life, I am changing my "only a day hiker" status to a "confident multi day backpacker!" I am ready and excited for the miles of smiles to come while trekking in the wilderness!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable for a petite backpacker! I’m a 5’4 petite girl. I usually like my backpacks to weigh under 4 lbs. before packing it up. I took this backpack on a 2 night trip; it was surprisingly not as heavy as I thought it would have been once I filled it up with my tent, sleeping back, pad, food, clothes etc. One thing I liked about this backpack is the adjustable shoulder strap and the fact that the hipbelt conforms to your hipbones and was sturdy and comfortable enough. The hipbelt pockets were even big enough to fit my Samsung phone! I have a hard time finding backpacks with that luxury. I love the ample side pockets for water bottles as well. However, it could use a little improvement. For those of us who don’t like to use a platypus or camel back in the reservoir holder, make them so that your bottles are easily accessible while you have the pack on or have add on detachable water bottle pockets. The separate bottom section for the sleeping bag and pad is a plus. There’s nothing I dislike more than to have to unload everything to get to my sleeping gear. I also love the fact that it has a built it rainfly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for long distance hiking I was looking for a backpack to start training for a hike for next spring when I heard about this one. The description seemed to be just what I was looking for so I decided to try it out. First off, it was pretty easy to adjust the straps. I've never had a pack where I could adjust the torso length so I was pleasantly surprised at what a difference that adjustment could make! After walking around a bit with the empty pack I decided to fill it and see if I was still happy with the fit. The hip belt made carrying the full pack a breeze, even though I've been known to overpack. One feature that I was really impressed by was the hydration reservoir pouch. I've tried many different types of water bottles, hydration packs, hydration bladders, etc. and never found one that was just right. At first I was a little skeptical about having the pouch accessible through the back panel. I was certain that I'd be able to feel the bladder pressing against my back the whole time. However, the padding completely masked the feel of the bladder. I didn't notice it at all! After the first weekend, I swapped out a smaller bladder and two water bottles for a much larger bladder. Once again, I didn't notice it at all. That seems like a minor thing, but trust me, not having something consistently rubbing/pressing against the small of your back, isn't a minor thing when you're on the trail all day. All in all, I was very impressed with this pack. My sister has even asked me to buy one for her birthday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Starter Pack This is great pack for a beginner backpacker. It fits well and the padding on the back allows for good airflow to keep you cool on warmer hiking days. The included rain fly is a nice perk as other packs require you to buy that separately and in my climate during spring and summer the rain can come one unexpectedly. I think this pack is good for climates that are seasonal, if you live in an area that is hot all the time I would get a pack that sits more off the back. While the front pocket is nice, I prefer to have a mesh or netted front on a pack for versatility. This pack though has plenty of places to tie your external gear to which is nice, I also like the hip pockets on both sides for carrying snacks and etc. I carry around 20-25 pounds in my pack when I go hiking and this felt great with this pack, though for a beginner it will take some getting used to, I would recommend if you are a true beginner to load the pack with gear or pillows and weights and start walking around your neighborhood in your hiking shoes before your first trip so that you are well aware of the pack and have it broke in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic pack! I bought this pack around a month ago. Since it wasn't available in my store, I ordered it and took it in to get fitted. I'm a fairly inexperienced backpacker, so I didn't want to spend a ton, but I wanted something that would last well and be comfortable for multi-day trips. While looking for a pack, I was able to compare this one with the Gregory Amber 60 (old version) and the Deuter ACTLite 45+10. I really preferred the fit of this one - I loved the adjustable hip belt, it carries the load well on my hips (it seemed to be lighter on my shoulders than both of the other packs I tried), it's comfortable, and a nice bonus is that I love the color and all the features. The only downside I can really see with this pack is that I would have preferred a 55 or 60L to a 65L pack, especially considering that the pack itself is pretty heavy at almost 5lbs. However, that's a pretty minor issue and I can say that I'm thrilled with the pack overall, especially considering the price. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relatively basic, comfortable pack. It's by no means lightweight, but it'll work very well for me.

Would this pack pass as a carry-on?

Asked by: amnk13
Most airlines require a piece of carry-on luggage to be no bigger than 45 linear inches (L + W + H…roughly 50 liters) to meet carry-on size restrictions. This pack is too large to meet this requirement. Carry on size can vary so please check with your airline ahead of time.
