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.
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.
Just did 26 miles in two days and had no issues--I almost forgot that I was wearing a pack! Only one hike in so far--we'll see how durable it is over time. But so far, this is a solid backpack at an unbeatable price!
Great pack for the money. I have always used Lowe Alpine packs but they are not technically appealling to me anymore. Mountainsmith makes a good pack and I bought the Lariat 65 at a great price on Overstock.com with a coupon. The only draw back that I see with this pack is that the water bottle holders on each side of the pack don't fit my Nalgene quart sized wide mouth bottles when my sleeping is packed at the bottom of the pack. I could use the bladder pocket for a hydration bladder but I like using the Nalgene bottles better. Otherwise a great pack with lots of good simple options for gear storage, like my Lowe Alpine pack used to have.
