Hey all. I’ve been doing some research on hiking packs as I’m soon to be in the market for a new one. Appreciate this is a complex topic and I’m not going to find all the answers in a forum but thought I’d throw it out there anyway.
I’m after something around 60-65 litres, lightweight but not sacrificing comfort. Previously mostly used Lowe Alpine packs which have done me well but aware there might be better options out there.
I’ve come across a few listed below that seem to get a lot of love, would appreciate any thoughts.
Osprey Atmos AG 65
Anti-Gravity suspension system makes it comfortable
Weighs 2.2 kg
Osprey Exos 58L
Very lightweight at 1.2 kg
Good for long-distance hikes
Comfortable and breathable
Less durable materials?
Limited storage options?
Wilderness Equipment Pindar 60
Made from high-grade canvas so presumably durable
Heavier than other options (2.9kg)
