An older pack with few amenities but it's been to some pretty special places with me. Lots of great memories....given to me by a friend.

As a matter of fact just got back from a hike this afternoon with grandson, Levi and this is the pack we took. It's my main day/hike pack. Cheers, Lynne

Arc-teryx Miura 50.

Tons of room, super comfortable even with heavy loads, side access to the deep stuff, narrow at the hips for the tight squeezes, well-balanced, bomber material and great warranty. The redesigned 2012 has even more room in the pockets, as well.

Arc-Teryx Muira 50

+1

Holds a rope, rack, and all the fixins' (including a helmet). Rides like a dream and is smartly laid out.

T. Hocking,

Here's a 70's Chouinard climbing pack of my husband, Dan's. It's still very functional and it's a keeper. Let a few family members use it once it awhile to keep the spirit alive. :D

Not my pack (mine was the original orange) but this is the pack I would pay top dollar to have back. A Karrimor Willan's Pack. Uncomfortable as hell, not waterproof, carried like crap but I dragged mine up hundreds of routes in plenty of places and it still hung in there. Canvas, FELT lined shoulder straps, no internal padding or framework. Overall a piece of crap but it was the best piece of crap I ever owned. And then one day... it was gone. Still don't know where...

Anyone have one they want to sell???

T Hocking, I so agree. Sometimes a zipper repair is needed and I've had great results from the Outfitters store around the corner from Nomad Ventures in JTree. They do great work for reasonable prices.

Mr. E, you have some great taste in packs going for you there. Arcteryx is kinda like the Porche, expensive but beautifully engineered and the performance is superb.

And how do you accomplish that, AP? Do you have some magic potion?

My favorite pack is;
The Red Marlboro Pack I got with Marlboro miles back in 93.
I'm still using it to this day. It's been drug, thrashed, abused,
and it still in good condition. It's been a workhorse thru the years.

My all time favorite pack was made by a friend Rich Lake. Many of you know him as pack maker to the stars. The pack was taken.

My first crag pack was a Arcteryx Bora 30 I got in Mong Kok in HK in the late 90's. Just the right size to not let me take too much crap. Took many a beating. Still in garage and still smells like the seas of Hong Kong (not sure if that's a good thing!). Many good years out of that pack.

My new pack is, for me, a work of art: Cold, Cold World Ozone. Super well made, super heavy duty. Simple with only features I want nothing extra. Now I gotta get out more and use the thing!

I have like 18 packs and I use all of them...haha.

I have a Tatonka day pack that I picked up in Germany that is my go-to day pack, it's been good to me.

These days, I usually always hike with my SAR pack on for training. It's a Coaxsher SR-1 Endeavor, nice system.
