Default Let's see pictures of your packs

Mid 70's Kelty Serac - Looks like it was never used when I bought it this year. No rips, no stains, every zipper is perfect. As you can see even the Kelty nametag is still blank. My Poler Napsack fits perfectly (with some room to spare) in the sleeping bag compartment.





The Napsack for those that have never seen one.

They just don't understand we need all these packs because each one has a purpose

I've owned this REI bag for maybe close to two years?
"Flash 18"



Surprisingly carries a solid amount for a day hike but can be hard to take stuff out of it if it's full. I'm looking to own an "Osprey-Stratos 24" for hikes and use the REI pack for very quick hikes, cycling and snowboarding.

+1, mine says "you even have 3 of the same bags!"
I told her, they arent the same.
One is OD, the other is black, and the other is coyote tan!
Seriously, how do I take an OD bag hunting in the desert?
In the dry season, you cant be pig hunting with a black pack!

Just my .02 cents. But I owned the Osprey loved it until I first really used it. It wears well but the curve in the back makes it difficult to get stuff in and out of it...

I can't provide any photos in this post, my packs are in my garage, and its too dangerous to venture into my garage without search and rescue being on call. In decreasing order I have a Cabela's Alaskan Guide pack and frame, then a Kelty Map 3500 then a Kelty Peregrine 29.

Same here. I've got half a dozen in the garage. I can give you a pic but just not sure how exciting that is.

I've got everything from a Lowe Alpine 30L up to an Arc'teryx 80L. My fav is a 40L Lowe Alpine because it's way functional, extremely rugged, but very light.

My Redhead internal frame. This is my hunting/camping/BOB. I keep it packed with the basics. Although I need to get a jet fuel stove.

I just got these on ebay for a canoe/camping trip Black canyon near Hoover dam. I gave my son the newer Black canyon model. It was never used $90 delivered from Alaska. He said it was too big after he opened it.. Mine was $50 + $20 shipping used once. It shows zero wear on it. 16 canoes & the guide had a kayak. It was a wonderful outing!

Hey Op, I have that same kershaw ken onion outcast. It's been my favorite chopper for many years and has taken a ton of abuse. Awesome blade.

I'm rocking an old Golight pack

i am so glad i clicked on this thread. i don't feel so bad about owning at least 8 different packs - all of which have special uses! my friends always give me grief about it - and that is when i am digging through the pile to loan them one. ugh. LOVE the napsack. i have a down bag called the OR Wallcreeper which is similar, but very large. cheers.

I recently ordered a Gregory Baltoro 75 in the green/moss color combination, should be here by the end of the week. I had narrowed my choices down to that and the Osprey Aether 70, tried them both on in REI with some weight in them and felt that the Gregory was just a bit more comfortable.

My criteria being, natural subdued colors, 70 to 80 liters capacity, comfortable, a separate compartment for the sleeping bag, and less that $400.

This will be my first real pack, my only other experience is with the Alice packs and the new Army Molle packs, which, while better than the Alice, still heavy and not super comfortable.

Funny, I too was at REI trying on the same packs. The sales guy was telling me that the Gregory Baltoro 75 is very durable, comfortable, and perfect for long term backpacking.

I tried the Osprey Aether 70 as well as the smaller version which was the Stratos 65 and Atmos 60, but fell in love with the Aether 70. The Gregory Baltoro will be my next buy for sure. Great pick. I'm sure you'll be happy with your new pack.

I saw you guys mentioning the Gregory Baltoro... It really is a fantastic pack. I absolutely love mine (I have the 65L). Here is a pic of my rig after I did a "Test fit/weight distribution check" of my gear a few days prior to a 5 day backpacking trip in the Sierra's. (Bear canisters suck to carry but they make a pretty good stool!)



I spent hours researching pack reviews, trying on packs, etc and I really feel like I made a good choice with the Baltoro.

Here's a pic of all of our stuff in the truck before we took off for our trip. There are packs in the truck made by High Sierra (Friend), North Face (Sister), REI (Brother in law), and Gregory (Mine).



Here is my hunting setup. This is a Badlands Superday pack. For hunting, I do not think Badlands can be beat. This is my bow season rig.



Rifle Season.
