Bear grylls Patrol 45 for me is the best backpack at all! Quality is great and price is affordable!

Good all round duffle. I especially like the shoulder straps for backpack-style carry.

The backpack came and was rather small. Adding to this is that the zipper is on a diagonal limitting the actual opening size in which to put things in the backpack. It looks fine but its not very practical. If you only have to carry small items then it will work for you. As for us it barely fit one set of clothes.

This is a great product. Bought it for my husband and he loved it. Can use as a backpack as well as carry it. Lots of pockets. Heavy duty. I would highly recommend this.

Klymit's Motion 35 backpack is the best 35l on the market today, this thing is light, well fitted, comfortable straps/belts/back! My devotion to Klymit for this backpack is unwavering! That being said, Overstock had this lower then retail, so I had to buy, this is my 1st time ordering from 'The O' . Overstock had a major problem; they sent me a pillow instead of this backpack, I got on the phone with them, the approved my RMA and refunded my 2nd day shipping, and resent out the order, then I got another pillow, this time I made sure they fixed there problem. On the third shipment I received the item I payed for 3weeks before. The product is perfect, Overstock customer service is perfect, Overstock had a mix up in the fulfillment of my order. I do recommend Overstock, but don't order if you need it now, it may take some time.

Bought this for my son who was shipping off to Germany for three years. he was able to stuff 2 pair of boots and all of his gear into every little pocket. I did not know that it also had backpack straps which was a welcome surprise seeing as how he will be using it for travelling over there. He loved it!

Used this bag for a camping trip. The padded shoulder straps and portion that rest on your back when in "backpack" mode was a plus. Many pockets that are zippered and velcro. Loved the rubberized bottom in addition the canvas bottom for extra protection.

Don't get me wrong, this bag is exactly what I wanted, it is big it is tough and looks great. My only qualm is that it does not have a single shoulder strap. Yes it has extra long handles and "backpack" straps, but no duffel strap. I haven't used it yet but I am sure it will be great. great price as well.

Works and fits very well. I bought it for a small backpack that I use on day trips. Fits securely and is quick and easy to put on. I even use it on my 'around town' bookpack. This takes a little adjusting as a bookpack has straps that attach at the top seam and there is little "pack" to wrap the top of the cover over, but it is doable.

With my focus this year shifting from mostly cycling to covering more outdoor activities, High Peak’s offer to let me try out their Alpinismo 45 backpack couldn’t have come at a better time. My current pack is sized just a bit too small for day-long adventures, and after seven years, was starting to show its age, so I jumped at the chance to test out something more modern. High Peak offers a fairly comprehensive line of camping gear, with backpacks, tents, sleeping bags and sleeping pads, all offering thoughtful design, high quality construction, and very reasonable prices. The Alpinismo 45 weighs only 3lbs, but has a generous capacity, listed as both 45 liters and 3,000 cubic inches. (According to my calculator, there’s about a 250 cubic inch difference between the two measurements, but it carried all my gear) It’s constructed of nylon that should wear well while at least being somewhat water-resistant, but not waterproof. In the past, I found most packs were too narrow across the shoulders, leaving me feeling restricted. But not only were the Alpinismo 45′s straps a good distance apart, the Vario System makes sizing a breeze. With a simple adjustment, this pack could go from large to small, meaning it will fit myself, my wife, or even one of the kids. Not only does that mean not having to compromise when choosing a pack that might be worn by two people of different sizes/body shapes, but if you’re buying one for your kids, it gives them plenty of room to grow. The nicely padded and contoured shoulder straps also have a whistle built into the orange buckle of the height-adjustable chest strap – a thoughtful detail. A bit lower, the hip belt is also constructed for maximum comfort, with a combination of mesh and foam on the interior surfaces.Storage can be broken down into the main compartment, a generous bottom compartment, and a smaller top lid pocket. Cord locks make closing the larger compartment a cinch. Highly visible orange zippers are used on the separating panels, allowing you to combine the compartments in order to accommodate larger items. While the top pocket is designed for items frequently accessed, I found that the lower one works best when hiking with children. Snacks, sunblock, and things like cameras are easy for them to get to without removing the pack or bending down. Mesh pockets on either side also offer added capacity with quick access. And no need to carry a water bottle in them, as there’s room for a hydration pack, as well as a handy port on the right shoulder. Loaded up with water, a light lunch, various electronic devices, sunblock and bug repellent, and extra layers in case it got cooler, I found the pack comfortable and well-balanced when correctly loaded. The lack of shifting, chafing, or digging of straps was appreciated, and the raised panels on the back kept things reasonably cool. There is no doubt in my mind that when I swap out the “family” gear for camping gear, it will perform equally well. If it’s time for a new backpack, or you need to update your current gear, the Alpinismo 45 is worth a look. And if the capacity isn’t enough, or you need to complete your camping ensemble, the High Peak website has more than a dozen other backpacks, along with plenty of tents and sleeping bags.

This bag is very well constructed using high quality material. Has many pockets along the side and larger ones at each end. Can be worn as a backpack there is padding along the top which provides comfrot when wearing. Very handsome I use the bag as my primary luggage when traveling, however it is very durable an could be used for camping or hunting gear. Only CONs The bag is too large to use as a carry on and doest have a shoulder strap. Very pleased overall.

I have had the Texsport bag for a little over a year now and it has been performing well. I use it several times a week to carry my work gear. I have only noticed two issues. One, the tightening straps for using the bag as a back pack slip and loosten on the "D" rings ( I may be overloading it!) and would benefit from an alligator style clip. Two, the PVC water resistant base has become brittle and has cracked, but I use mine A LOT, in all types of weather. It isn't meant to be a waterproof base, just keeps moisture off your gear if you set it down in the snow or rain. Overall I am surprised at how well the seams and handles have taken the abuse I have given them. Allen L., West Virginia Oilfields

This product is going to function as an emergency bag to hold water, flashlights, a first aid kit, etc. It is extremely durable and the price was great.

Husband and I purchased these to be used for our 72-hour kits and they are plenty big, sturdy, and we love that they are waterproof. Preparedness is key!

I bought this because it specifically said it was fully submersible. I sealed the pack properly (Ive used waterproof packs like this before) and stuck it underwater in the pool for less than 2 seconds and it was already starting to fill with water. I'm sure this is great for protection from rain, but it is not submersible.

Love the bright yellow color. It definitely stands out from afar. This appears to work as stated, however, we went kayaking with this so we didn't get a chance to see whether it is what it says it to be. Will use for future water-related sports/activities!

Have not used but appears to be of very good quality and just as described.

I bought this for my husband as a carry-on bag for a recent trip. I was disappointed in the size since it seems a bit small but my husband is quite satisfied with the size. Either way, it is quite durable and well constructed.
