Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Constructed Pack After trying out around a dozen backpacks, I ultimately settled on this pack due to how well its constructed and how comfortable it is when loaded with weight. I am yet to take it on a long trip, but I have confidence it will remain comfortable on a multi-day drip. After trying so many backpacks, it came down to this bag, and the Gregory paragon 58. Though the paragon was slightly more comfortable, it is made with flimsy fabric doesn't seem like it would last very long or take abuse from the trail very well. One thing I would change about the PCT 55 is the hydration reservoir pocket, which doubles as a day pack. This part of the bag is sort of clunky and not the easiest to deal with. I would rather have a traditional hydration reservoir pocket on the bag. A little disappointing, but not a deal breaker. Along with this, the pockets on the hip belt don't seem large enough to be practical, but the comfort and the durability of the rest of the bag makes it seem as though its worth the sacrifice, especially since this bag has such large side pockets where things can be stuffed. This seems like a durable bag that will last me decades, not to mention Mountain Hardwear has a great repair shop for their products if they happen to break or wear down prematurely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great pack Freaking love the size and just how it's put together. Haven't had a chance to put it to use yet but just from how it feels and packs I'm happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first real backpacking pack and its almost perfect This is my first real pack for overnight backpacking. I have been hiking and using Mtn Hardware packs for a long time I currently have a Splitter 20 that I've had for about 8 years and put through the ringer. Also my newer pack a Rainshadow 36 that's about 4 years old and used and abused with no sign of giving up anytime soon. So going into this pack I had and still have very high expectations. So far I can only give initial impressions as my only real use thus far was a 3 mile overnight trip to the upper twin lake on Mt.Hood about a 3 mile hike. It performed pretty well for that but I still yet to put it though some more punishing things like get caught in a rainstorm to truly test how well it holds up in more undesirable circumstances. The sizing is a touch big but that was to be expected as I'm very thin but with a broad build making sizing of clothes and packs a little more challenging. So for people more normally proportioned it should fit just fine and it still worked just fine for me. The pack has plenty of room was able to fit everything I could need and more: First Aid kit, two changes of clothes, half my tent (went with my girlfriend and she had the rest), a fleece and rain jacket, food for two, 3.5 liters of water, sleeping bag, my fly fishing gear, a shovel, ect. So far so good and really I would have rated this 4.5 if possible but since I can't ill have to leave it at a 4. As to why, there is one major drawback I've found with carrying a hydration bladder. So the pack has a day-pack included that attaches inside the pack for ease of use and it has a clip inside to attach your bladder inside the day-pack. This is all and good however I don't really plan on using the day-pack and that bladder clip is the only one in the pack. So if you remove the day-pack you lose your mounting point. I found an easy fix that being some Velcro tape stuck together fed through an exposed portion of the metal frame at the top of the inside of the pack that allows me to hold a bladder in place (A zip-tie worked as well but is much less practical). A spot to feed through the hose would be nice as well but is not necessary as feeding through the top works just fine, just a detail that would be a great addition. So overall first impressions are great build quality is top notch and can hold a crazy amount for a 55 liter, just a few little things here and there that would be super easy fixes to just make it that much better. I very much look forward to putting it through its paces this summer and beyond, I have high hopes.
