No need to break your back on the trails. This Ozark Trail Hiking Backpack Eagle distributes the load from your shoulders to your hips, and you can hike comfortably with the adjustable back panel and load stabilizing system. Made with a tough poly fabric and air-mesh straps, your only worry will be which way to go at the fork. And since you'll need water, the pack is hydration compatible to keep you hydrated on hot days and difficult treks. For the rainy days, it also includes a rain cover in the bottom pocket.

For adults- this is a pretty small backpack for the style, usually backpacks that look like this, used by adults, are like 70-80L. I grabbed this one a while back for my wife because she can't carry much weight but wanted a backpack that looked like a legit hiking pack. For someone who wants a 40L travel bag definitely don't get this, look for the kinds that are full zip panel loading and still have a wide waist strap like the kelty redwing.

Nice! These have adjustable torso length on the shoulder harnesses and fit great on smaller bodies as well. We've been using them for overnight backpacking trips for our 9-yr-old and 11-yr-old, and they work great. We mostly just have them carry their sleeping bags, mats and some clothes, so keep things light.

Ah my bad I was just trying to recommend whatever price range of a panel loading bag, that was just the first one that came to mind, like to google what I meant by panel loading. I've definitely seen walmart and other cheap panel loading ones.

There's a quality difference that is probably covered by that price difference. It's not the same as comparing a $100 bag to a $400-$600 bag. There's a lot of Ozark Trail stuff you could spend $1 on, but spending $10 (oh em gee! 10 times as much!?) on a properly made item might be the way to go.

Most of the quality gain you get in a bag is in that first $100-$200 dollar range. A lot of people would rather spend $92 (all time low in CCC for a Kelty Redwing) once every 5-10+ years on a Kelty or similar bag with a great warranty than having to repeatedly buy something like this. Nobody should buy this expecting it to last more than a a year with anything like regular use IMO.

I have no experience with the Kelty Redwing, but a lot of people rave about it. Here's an Amazon link, but Ebags has good sales too.

https://www.amazon.com/Kelty-2261...th=1&psc=1

Edit: just did a search on SD, and the Kelty has been between $50 and $65 several times, so if you can wait, I think it's no contest.



I like Osprey bags myself. They are often a bit more, but they warranty all bags for life, supposedly even if they are 40 years old. I just wait for last year's models to go on clearance.

If you're planning to use it for hiking, make sure you have an appropriate level of expectations for a $25 backpack.

I bought this bag on a similar sale (Not because I need it, but because I can't muster the strength to resist slickdeals) without much research or knowledge of hiking bags. I ended up using it on an overnight backpacking trip last year and if you take into account how cheap it is and where you are buying it from, it's not a terrible purchase. Just know that if you plan to hike even a few longer tips, it might just be worth it to invest a little more in a more reliable bag that will likely last you a lifetime.

Cons:
The bag itself has a rip at the drawstring on the top and the zipper in the front pocket broke on that one trip (about 18 miles). I didn't think it was TOO uncomfortable but I had never tried on anything else so I had no clue and figured I would be able to handle any discomfort. The cushions tend to get really warm and that was the most uncomfortable thing for me. I tried on a friend's gregory backpacking pack on that trip and it was night and day in terms of quality and comfort.

Looking back on it, i think i would have saved myself the purchase and just spent more (albeit, a lot more relative to this price) on an osprey/kelty/gregory/deuter bag.

Thanks for the recommendation. I believe that's actually along the same lines of what I have been looking for lately. Do you think this is something that i can use for an overnight trip in nature as well as on a backpacking trip on a flight? I'm mainly worried about it's size for carry-on flights (I want to avoid checking in if i backpack europe etc). I have mainly been looking into osprey due to their almighty guarantee.

This right here is why you don't cheap on a hiking pack. Prepare to hate your life when a zipper fails on the trail or the bag rips from cheap nylon. If you want a bag for a day, that's fine but if you plan to take up hiking or want to make many trips, just pony up for a bag that will make you feel good on those switchbacks instead of added weight. You will end up spending the same overtime with disposable bags anyway.

REI garage sales are a great way to get great bags for cheap also, if you're a member. Membership is for a lifetime and $30. Worth it IMO.

Yeah, external frame has been generally outdated for many years now. That being said I'm no advocate of taking anything by Ozark Trail on an actual "backpacking" trip...

The Kelty Redwing is often cited as great for exactly what you're talking about. As for Osprey bags that will work for both hiking and flying look at the Farpoint 40, and the Ozone 46. 46L is about as big as you can go and be guaranteed to be carry on compatible. You can try to sneak a few extra liters past the gate attendant, but don't be surprised if they make you check your bag.
