i wanna order something using MEM2013 but the $20 membership cost kinda kills the deal...

Its a one time membership fee for a lifetime membership. Usually, the 10% cash back they give pays itself off in he first year.

Yes please! I came to this thread hoping to find a 29 liter fanny pack. Very disappointing.
I see what you did there. I chuckled.

The cash back is only for retail-priced items per their website:

"10% is typical but not guaranteed. Your refund is based on eligible purchases, which exclude REI-OUTLET.com items, sale and clearance items (prices ending in $._9 or $._3), items discounted 15% or more, gift cards, REI Adventures trips, REI Outdoor School classes and outings, sales tax, postage, mounting, engraving, labor, rental fees, lift tickets, government agencies and membership fee."

For a slickdealer like myself, I'm pretty much only buying sale, clearance and items discounted 15% or more.

Are there ever any good deals for bigger (60+ liter) backpacks? I don't seem to ever see any posted on SD.

I got a 75 liter from theclymb.com. They have some heavily discounted stuff from time to time.

top loading, light weight, no internal frame. Good deal if this meets your criteria.

For many people they want the ease of access of front loading, a few external pockets and more internal structure to help distribute weight of pack.

I have owned a few REI packs of different sizes and found the quality to be excellent, and the pack to be a great value compared to other name brands. I have not seen this pack.

Looks good, but concerned about zero reviews and also a few things that I noticed in looking at the detailed pics. 1) The chest strap doesn't look very durable. It appears to adjust up & down along a plastic rail and clip into place, and it's probably not going to last long before the plastic snaps and then you're screwed. 2) The lack of rings to attach things to on the outside of the pack. When hiking I like to put a lot of often accessed things such as flashlights, gps, etc, on a carabiner and attach it to a ring on the back of the pack. 3) The straps at the bottom for a tent or sleeping pad look like they're just elastic rather than being adjustable straps. That is bad for two reasons - one, you won't be able to tighten it down to make sure whatever you're carrying in it is nice and secure, and two the elastic will eventually get loose and stretched out after a while.

If those things don't bother you at all then this seems like a great pack at a really good price. But I'm going to pass, even though it is tempting for just a simple weekend camping pack.

It might not trigger some people's search-alerts without that in the title.

Probably medium...but you need to have your torso measured to be sure.

This has decent reviews for a 65 liter: http://www.amazon.com/TETON-Sport...for+hiking
