The only downside I see is that it says 'Ozark Trail'. All my shallow friends with their REI, Kelty, Bauer, etc. brand packs will shame me out of the campsite if I show up w/this on my back.

You know something? Screw them if they try to shame me just because of my frugalness. Actually, this will be a great opportunity to see exactly who my REAL friends really are!

Eh, as an avid backpacker, I think this pack has its uses. I give this deal a TU.

I have owned cheap packs (High Sierra) and expensive packs (Osprey) and currently use an REI Crestrail.

Honestly, my favorite pack was the High Sierra and it wasn't expensive at all. The Osprey was a bit more comfortable than the HS (though not ridiculously so) and equal to my REI pack. I preferred the HS because I was willing to sacrifice weight for features (airflow through the back, boatload of zippered pockets, top and bottom access, etc). I only got rid of it because I have a tendency to want to sleep on my own (hammock or tent, but not sharing, so I carry it all myself) and 40L was tight in the winter.

I say this only to point out that expensive does not always equal better. Granted, $25 is ridiculously cheap, but my HS was only $50 on sale, so there's that. My Crestrail was only $100 on sale. My Osprey was $220 on sale.

Sure, this pack isn't light, but it has some decent features that make it heavier. Sure, it's not adjustable, but if you fall within the correct torso range, who cares? The padding on the straps and hipbelt look adequate.

Full disclosure: I'm not an AT thru-hiker or anything. My longest trips are 3-4 days and 50 miles or so. If you're just getting into it, I think this pack is worth trying. Use it within 90 days so you can return it if it sucks.
I think Ozark Trail products have become the new hip things to own, secretly they will envy you as you munch on your Great Value brand trail mix :-)

That's a lot of pack for $25. The only downside I see is this is getting to be a bit large for a day pack, but is still too small for all but minimalist 2-3 day backpacking trips. And then only if you're hiking with someone (preferably with a larger pack) who can help carry some common items, like a 2-person tent, a stove and a cookset.

If you're realistic about your needs and this pack fits the bill, seems like a good buy.

Sorry to poo poo but when it comes to packs like this that are meant for overnights, a low priced pack, most likely won't provide any sort of comfort/quality level as a Gregory, Osprey, or Kelty. A pack designed for similar uses should be a lifetime investment. You life might actually depend on it.

Actually the real downsides are the lack of durability and quality control while being over built and heavy at the same time, a poor suspension system and lack of sizing for different torso lengths, etc. It's not about the money spent.

Thanks for that info.

Curious. Do you own this? Or were you able to go to the store to check it out?

But yeah... age has allowed me to learn that it's a much better idea to just avoid doing something (hiking/camping/boating/skiing/climbing) if using cheap equipment than to run the risk of experiencing 'equipment failure' while endangering yourself or family/friends.

It's just not worth the trouble/potential serious danger.

Sage advice. Sage advice.

I'll add these two bits of advice, as well:

1.) Load up the back and go for a day hike in a local park. Do this with any pack you buy, regardless of what it costs. No one but you can say if it's comfortable and committing to a couple of hours will give you a pretty solid idea of whether or not a pack will work for you.

2.) Take some needles and thread with you when you backpack. I don't care if you have a top of the line Osprey or this $25 Ozark Trail. Stuff happens and the great warranty that comes with that Osprey pack doesn't do you a lick of good if you're 10 miles from civilization and something goes wrong.

Keep in mind that unless this pack is total crap (and it may be, I make no claim either way), it should be fine as long as it fits you (this is important!) and you don't overload it. Will it last 20 years? Probably not. Will it give you a couple of seasons of good times? Probably!

If I could give only one piece of durability-related advice for using any pack, whether a cheapo one like this or a high end Gregory or Mountainsmith, it would be: learn to use the haul loop when putting on and taking off a heavily loaded pack.

Jerking it off the ground or swinging it off your back by the shoulder harness is about the worst thing you can do. It's a guaranteed fast track way to bust a critical sewn anchor point.
