This unique Mountainsmith Lariat 65 Multiday Backpack features a U-shaped zippered access to main compartment that enables fast packing and easy organization. The innovative ICS Cup hipbelt transfers and locks the pack load onto the hips.
As has been said before, this pack needs some small outside pockets for the little things like sunscreen, bug spray, snacks etc.... That aside, this is the most comfortable backpack that I have ever used, very adjustable and the removable day pack is a nice touch. For the price you can't beat it.

I boughtthis pack 4 weeks ago and I've hiked 19 miles on the Colorado Trail and 3.5 on the approach to a 14er. I'm very satisfied with the pack. The summit pack is a great feature. I used it to hike up to the summit of Mt of the Holy Cross. It was jut the right size.
I bought this pack for a 5 day 50 miler with the Boy Scouts and it worked great. The U shaped zipper that allows you to access the pack without having to empty it was awesome. The detachable daypack is also a nice touch. My only complaint is that the water bottle holders are tough to reach if you have the pack on. Overall, well worth the price.
This is an awesome packpack! I really love the fact that it is front and top loading. The fact that you can expand the pack volume is also really cool. One thing I don't like about this pack though, is that it has no pockets or anyway internally to organize your gear. The hip belt and suspension are really comfortable, and transfer the weight to your hips very well. I also like the ajustable torso length length length length length length too. A final icing on top of the cake was the included day pack that nicely straps to the front of the pack. All in all, this is a great pack for the money, especially if you want one that is front loading.
This backpack has been on a world trip with me and has held on against the elements. I even had it in checked in on domestic as well as 18 hr long international flight and it is in pristine shape. The only gripe I have is the length of the metal frame, it is a little too long to fit in the overhead compartment in some domestic flights. Yes I have used it as a carry on as well and it is very versatile. The green color is very attractive and I have got some compliments on this backpack. My only worry was about the quality of the compression straps but I must say this backpack has one of the best straps I have seen. Even after the battering it got from being checked in on an international flight, the bag shows no sign of wear and tear or any loose straps. I simply love this backpack and even though I may not be able to use it as a carry on but I am surely keeping it.
Yes, I prefer the "U" shaped loading but both work great.joatmon89 on Aug 10, 2014
