I'm new to the Backpacking scene, but I must say that I'm a Big fan of this pack. I usually just use an old school back pack when I go camping, and just strap everything on the outside. But I have been converted by the Infinity 60. All my gear fit in this bad boy: clothes, sleeping bag, pad, and food. And the swivel hip pad, while it confused me at first as to why I would need it, made the hiking experience just that much more comfortable. The pack stayed up right and snug, and didn't threaten to throw me over the edge when I had to scramble over rocks.
The only down side I found was the packs Suicidal Tendency to jump off of high places. It jumped off my table, off several rocks I put it down on, and I'm sure if I took it near cliffs it would have attempted a jump there to. So, keep your eye on this one, he's got low self esteem, even if he Is the best pack I've ever used.
When I want to dance, I don't go to a party, I just pull my pack out of the closet. She (yes my pack is definitely female) fits like a dream and the pivoting hip joint and shoulder straps let her move with every motion, whether it's scrambling through Utah slot canyons or winter climbing in Colorado. BD nailed it with the Infinity.
Super simple pack; one big pocket, H20 sleeve, one-pocket brain. It might not have all the fancy bells and whistles that an equivalent Osprey or Gregory pack might have, but then, there's less to break. After three years of hard use, I've got two tiny holes in the brain fabric, the side and front pockets are stretched out, and there's scuff marks all over.
I've never had an issue fitting my gear in, even when leading weeklong trips where I've had to carry extra food, first-aid kit, paperwork, etc.
Just the best. Bottom line.
- I absolutely love the pivoting hip joint and shoulder straps. It makes the pack easy to manage and very comfortable when fully loaded. This Feature gets 6 out of 5 stars.
- The pack is surprisingly light weight.
- Belt Pockets are a great place for a camera or other small handy items.
- I found myself consistently wanting a few more straps to attache my gear.
- No bottom entrance into the main compartment.
- I had a sleeping mat fall out and get lost that I packed in the compression pocket. I admit that I am at fault for not packing it properly, but there are not a lot of other options.
This is not a complicated pack. It gets the job done. It has some issues, but overall it is a solid pack.
I just used this bag on an overnight yurt trip in N. Utah and it worked perfectly. The trip in was a true test as I had Red Iguana Mole for 6 on top of all my other gear. The bag handled the load perfectly and I quickly fell in love with the ball joint hip belt setup. No matter how much I leaned or dipped, the pack was continuously centered and balanced. At the yurt, the pack reduced down great for doing laps and did not feel too bulky at all with a much-lighter "essentials-only" load. The only complaints I might have with this pack is the lack of shovel/probe sleeves and the hip belt and chest strap could have been done using slightly wider materials.
I love this backpack. It was very comfortable. It held all my gear (abt 32 lbs) w/o being cumbersome at all. The lockout on the hip belt is so well thought out. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wanted a panel zip somewhere on the bag, but honestly it wasn't necessary as I learned where/how to stow stuff so that the bag was still balanced and things I needed during the hike were accessible. I'd give it 4.7 stars if that was an option.
this pack is great, enough room to go for as many days as i want, comfortable and sleek design without all the straps and loose crap to snag on things as your hiking. with that being said, my only complaint is that they dont offer a panel zip like the osprey or gregory. if you can deal with that its a great pack.
The concept, design and production this pack is the best of others in its class. The material is light, very durable supported by the diamond weave throughout it. It is everything that you would expect of Black Diamond. For a 65L pack you can't beat it and nothing compares with it. Get one. A great addition to your pack arsenal.
My backpacking buddy tried this pack and so I'm relaying some of the feedback he gave me. He's 5'10 and athletic. He said that the Pack fit really well and that it rested well on his hips. He also liked that he could fit more that he thought he could thanks to the generous width and large lid.
This pack is fairly light, has plenty of space for a multi-day trip, and is very comfortable. Only issue that I have found is a squeaking that occurs when the waist strap is fastened. BDEL just said to apply some dry lube to the swivel to get rid of this annoying squeak.
I like this pack, it does great on 3-5 day outings. The ergo active hip belt makes for nice free movement while still keeping the load off the shoulders. That being said there are a couple of small improvements that would bump this pack up to a definite 5 stars. First an alternate entry point to the main compartment would be awesome. I understand the simplicity BD was going for with only the top entry point but it is very frustrating when you have to unload your whole pack because something has managed to slip to the bottom while you were hiking. A single bottom or side entry point would be very convenient without detracting from the sleek contour of the pack. My 2nd complaint probably stems from me expecting too much from the pack but the padding on the shoulders is a little thin and you can feel the heavier loads as the day wears on. More padding on the shoulders would go far to make heavy loads much more bearable. I tend to use this pack as my do everything pack and its just not quite as versatile as I would have hoped. By no means is this a bad pack, I definitely recommend it for shorter trips. If you are looking for a pack to do it all, however, I can't say the infinity would be my first recommendation.
