REI Co-op Trail 40 Pack - Men's $46.93

This is a trail backpack although it is also a travel friendly bag.

size medium available as of this posting.

This is a decent price for this bag. It was lower before, but this is a good price as well I think.

Here's a decent review of the bag.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjyCXAsu-XU

I got this a little while ago and compared it to the REI flash 45 that I have.

I loaded both up with a bunch of sweatshirts and fully loaded the flash 45 definitely feels like it would be easier to keep walking longer. It distributes the weight better.

I think this trail 40 bag would be good as a carry on for a flight and/or as a bag not packed fully. The side opening style of the zipper is convenient, but might be bad for some if they feel that things could get stolen more easily. And there does not appear to be a way to lock this side zipper. The top zippers can be locked together, but I don't see how the side zippers could.

Just my two cents

Edit: the trail 40 packs more squarish compared to the flash 45, which means that the wieght is further away from your body.

I got two of these for $29, on Cyber Monday. For that price, I think they are very good.

I got them as gifts, for two people that won't use them for hiking, but more of a travel bag. I tried on the Men's and thought it felt really comfortable; even versus Osprey Atmos and Aether bags.

I feel the same way. I think it is a better travel bag than hiking bag. Although it definitely feels softer that a trekking bag IMO.

What would be a good bag this size for long hikes? 20-25 miles

I think it depends on what kind of hike. What I mean by that is if it will be a relatively flat or hilly hike. If flat you can go with a heavy duty osprey atmos since the weight won't matter as much as if you are going up a lot of inclines where the weight might wear more on you.

If it's just for a one time thing then I wouldn't invest a lot though. If it's just a one time thing I would probably look for a big discount on a end of season bargain or a noname brand.

I would go to an outdoor store selling hiking bags though to try some on to see what you like

Bought the 25L version of this bag in the last REI sale. Solid traveling bag. Used it to travel to Asia during the holidays. Small enough to count as a 'personal item'. Can probably fit a week or so worth of clothes in it.

That said, the only downside was the top zippered compartment. When you put things on it, the flap becomes 'floppy' when you open the main compartment. Not a deal breaker but kinda wish the main compartment flap had more structure or have the top zippered compartment was relocated to the bottom instead.

Other than that. it is a great bag when I paid 25 bucks for it.
