Hiked using this pack up a strenuous trek for the first outing with it. I loaded it to 30 lbs dry, and about 40 lbs wet; it was very comfortable to wear. I like the materials used in construction, and there are plenty of cinch straps that can also be used to strap on gear externally. On the way d... Read More

    This was purchased as a two to three day excursion pack. Love the versatility and comfort. The only issue I had was that my sleeping bag in it's stuff bag was too big for the bottom compartment. Still yet to take it on a trip but am sure it will be great.

    Overall I really like this bag. My only problem with it is that it is just a little light duty for really heavy loads. Other than that I think it is a great product.

    A note sent to Alps Mountaineering suffices as a description/rating below. The design is good and the features compare with other brands, so I offer four stars. Chances are, the materials can take the same wear and tear - so, this pack could be a welcome surprise indeed!

    "Your Transcend 5500 backpack that I purchased from Sierra Trading Post has a "detachable top lid" that I can detach only with a bowie knife (just kidding). Two of the four buckles on the lid are the strap-through variety - a design error, no doubt. I accept it as "just business". But I wonder if you have an idea for correcting this - before I head to the local shoe repair. Like, for instance, two 3- inch velcro-ed straps I can loop through the strap-throughs, to attach the add-on couplings (cannibalized from my Gregory pack). By the way, this Transcend design is very appealing, with its exterior strapping styles - and I've hiked 27,000 miles, knowing of these things (not that I'll likely take your pack through similar rigors)."

    This pack simply did not fit my frame. (5'8 female). The lid literally hit back of my head, making it impossible to rotate my neck comfortably while wearing. I adjusted the torso length to both extreme's and it didn't help at all. I returned the pack and will continue my search. It's a real shame because it had everything else I was looking for, and with this one exception seemed like a well-made, thoughtfully designed bag.

    Hiked using this pack up a strenuous trek for the first outing with it. I loaded it to 30 lbs dry, and about 40 lbs wet; it was very comfortable to wear. I like the materials used in construction, and there are plenty of cinch straps that can also be used to strap on gear externally. On the way down I hauled trash externally only because I wanted to keep the trash on the outside of the pack even though there was room inside. Light for its large size and held everything, including crew gear, internally. 5500 cubic inches translates to just over 90 liters. This pack will provide the room for lengthy treks. Large capacity and many features made this pack the talk of the group. Two others who were on that trek bought one when they returned home.
