Mountainsmith was a big brand back then, so when I was looking to buy a new bag, they were one of the first brands I looked at. Although Osprey now seems to be king now. Naturally, I was debating between a 65L Osprey and this 60L. I was worried I might need the extra 5L given the size of my old school tent, sleeping bag/pad.
I ultimately when with this option as the price was very good at $137 and I had great experiences with the brand 20 years ago! I also watched a few YouTube videos and seemed like it had everything I was looking for in a bag.
I bought this bag to do a 14 mile two night hike. I brought a moderate amount of food, cloths, and gear and still had what I would say was plenty of extra room for more cloths and food. Even with my old, larger, and heavier gear I was able to fit everything with ease into this bag (including my full 3L Camelbak).
The bag held up very well and after some adjustments, it was very comfortable, and exceeded my expectations. The material is high quality and very durable with lots of straps and cinches to tighten down your gear. None felt flimsy or cheap. In the end my only grip with this bag was that one of the what I would call water bottle pockets was not as easy to get my nalgene into, pretty minor.
Love the bag, and I now have the matching color Mountainsmith Clear Creek 18L!
The front stretch pocket is not accessible with the brain clipped in and secured but having th hip pockets and side pockets was enough storage for my cell, bug spray, water, etc.
Overall it seems to be a very well constructed pack and I can’t wait to use it again!
Also I was picking huckleberries and the bag ruptured, leaking juice all over the material. Not sure if it stained or not but I love the color!
