Well made and very comfortable.
Ralph C. Browne
I could loosen the straps through the teeth of the buckle with just a little pressure from my finger.

Let me start off by saying that I would definitely recommend this backpack. I love the fact that it is top loading and front loading. I also like the removable day pack that doubles as the lid or top of the pack, and the sleeping bag compartment that can be zippered off on the inside of the bag to create a completely separate section. I also like that the bag comes with its own rain cover which is conveniently stored at the very bottom of the bag under the sleeping bag section. The bottom of the bag has an opening that allows you to access the rain cover by simply opening the Velcro and pulling the rain cover out. You will have to remove anything that you strap to the bottom of the bag by the two latching compression straps in order to access the rain cover opening. Having the rain cover at the bottom of the bag also provides cushion should you choose to use the sleeping bag area for other items.
With this bag I was able to carry loads over 40 lbs. very comfortably. I would especially recommend this pack to those who are just getting started in backpacking since it is "Very" user friendly. Having said that, this pack would be even better for the more experienced backpacker since they would know more about the ins and outs of packing it. The pack is also very versatile for body types since it is very adjustable for differing torso lengths.
I am 6'01 and weigh 230 lbs and I have not hiked in years and I have never owned a hiking backpack, I have used hunting backpacks. Therefore, I spent literally weeks researching backpacks on the internet and at the local small outfitter. I looked at all brands and all price ranges. I knew that I was not going to go out and spend thousands to get the lightest tent, sleeping pad, mess kit, etc. So I knew that I needed a larger pack.

Color Name: Amazon/Tungsten/BlackSize Name: One Size
When I received my Appalachian 75 I was very pleased with the amount of compartments and places where you can hang items like a camp axe or sleeping pad. The orange interior enables you to spot things easier inside the main compartment when you are looking for something. The rain cover is great and folds nicely in the bottom. The harness fits snug around my waist and over my shoulders. I can fit enough stuff in this bag that would last me for a 5 to 7 day backpacking trip.

One the downside I noticed a few things that would get very annoying. First thing is the shoulder straps keep loosening right after I tighten them. Because of this, it makes it where you cannot tighten them as much as you want which in the end creates sway and a loose feeling on the top of the pack. I might be able to remedy this by sharpening the teeth on the belt clip. Second thing I noticed was one of the straps that run vertical across the length of my bag, to add support, is stitched incorrectly. Only half of the strap is stitched which looks like it might come apart with more use. The last thing, and is minor, is the zippers. If you want to pack an average sized sleeping bag or fill up your compartments to the brim, be prepared to spend a great deal of time zipping them up. The placement and size of the zippers allow there to be some difficulty in zipping up.

Conclusion: I am happy with the pack because of the amount of things I can bring with me. The features are great! I am just disappointed in some of the manufacturing flaws that I have to spend time on fixing myself.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this pack based on the High Sierra reputation, great price and online reviews. Most of them were spot on. I just took the pack for a two-day 17 mile back country hike. The quality of the pack is commendable, the space available for packing is great, lots of pockets, great accessibility to your pack contents via different pockets and zippered access points. All in all, I like the pack, and want to love it. But...

The shoulder straps do not hold. When you initially pull the straps tight to bring the pack close to your torso, it feels great. After 30 seconds or so of hiking they begin to slip, and continue to do so. It is maddening. I ended up almost constantly grasping the straps to tighten them--literally 1-2 times a minute. I did not use any hiking poles, and really couldn't have, as both hands were constantly occupied with tightening the shoulder straps. Thinking it might be an adjustment issue, I took the pack off and took a closer look at the buckles. I could loosen the straps through the teeth of the buckle with just a little pressure from my finger. I honestly think these buckles are inferior in design. Either the teeth aren't sharp enough, preventing the straps from being firmly secured by the buckle, or there is just too much space where the strap is threaded through the buckle, with the same end result.

I will take a good look at these buckles, and perhaps I can re-thread the strap. If I can't find a solution though, I will reluctantly return this pack. As an aside, I also simultaneously bought the Appalachian Sentinal 65 pack as well. The buckles on the shoulder straps on that one work impeccably, with no sliding or slipping. I honestly think there may be a defective or poorly designed buckle on the 75 liter pack shoulder straps, but not on the 65!
