Marmot Ascent 35                              Retail Price: $129

This was a great all-around pack.  I used it for high-country hikes as well as general travel.  The practically indestructible materials and zippers are great, and, because you can tuck the shoulder straps and waist belt inside the pack, it makes a small package when checking it at the airport. Watching it tumble from the baggage drop at the airport was entertaining because seeing it brought back fond memories of reaching into its pockets while scaling the side of Mt. Thielsen. Sure, I was reaching for a beer, but that's beside the point!   It's also tough to beat the price. 4.1 lbs

The North Face Backtrack 50    Retail Price: $219

It's a shoulder bag.  It’s a suitcase-style bag.  It’s a backpack with a detachable daypack-which we enjoyed on back road treks in Arizona.  The removable two-compartment daypack bumps up the volume and pulls double duty as a carry-on during flights. It has exterior bottle holders for water (or beers for me) and a zippered cover, which doubles as a rain cover with drain holes. 5.1 lbs
Arc’teryx Axios 33                     Retail Price: $175

The Axios has just the right number of features, like organizer pockets and a stretchy pouches on the front.  But no rat's nest of straps. The mesh back panel also did its job cutting down on sweat, as we experienced on a 3 mile bush-whacking trek up Hurkey Creek in the San Jacinto mountain range.  We were whacked with stinging nettles and our legs were cut to shreds by the brush, but the pack was comfy.  We made it to our secret swimming hole with the pack stuffed with a full 12 pack of beers, extra clothes, and snacks.  2.6 lbs, 2,014 cu in
