Load me up!

We've owned an Aircontact SL pack for over a year now and love that's it comfortable and also tough as nails. My husband and I both use this pack – I'm 5'5" and he's 5"11". I really like the SL fit in the hips and chest. The pack has an adjustable strap behind the back that lengthens the torso for my husband. It's padded in all the right places and my back stays drier than other packs I've worn.

We use this pack primarily on climbing approaches or single-night backpacks. When our daughter was born 2 years ago, we realized needed a bigger pack for the three of us to go climbing or backpacking. One of us carries Ali in a Deuter Kid Carrier III, and the other gets Aircontact with the rope, rack, and adult clothes for climbing or the camping gear if backpacking. If the terrain is easy, I'll carry Ali and load my husband down like a mule with the Aircontact. The pack can definitely handle big loads and still carries great. When the going gets more technical, we switch over, he takes some extra weight, and I really appreciate the SL design for comfort and agility on uneven terrain.

The pack definitely has Alpine features on it, more than the average thru-hiker backpack. It's got two straps for ice axes or trekking-pole storage on the back, an adjustable strap under the lid for carrying a rope, two daisy chains on the back for clipping stuff on, and has tough fabric throughout for surviving encounters with rock and gear. We love the various compartments and access- you've got a big bottom compartment for a sleeping bag or in our case the rack and harnesses, vertical side pockets for maps, snacks, fly boxes or rain layers. The main compartment is accessed by the top or –even-better – through the back zippers. You can lay the pack flat and have access to anything in the middle! The top lid is easy to take off – so you can drop some weight is the pack isn't maxed out.

The pack is tough and durable, we've had a Zion-sized rack of cams in it, thrown glacier axes on it, bushwhacked through sharp mazanitas, thrown it at the base of crags, and done some butt and back dragging descents. It's got water bottle holders on both sides and a great pocket on the waist belt for our digital camera and keys. All the features add weight to the pack, so it's not a minimalist's dream. But we find the organizational features really help with our three-person circus; and the other straps and features are so useful. Even when not using it as a pack, we bring it on trips to keep our daughter's clothing items separated and organized.

Negative Reviews:

No way

I have tried a zillion packs, as it turns out I'm pretty hard to fit, even though I'm average sized. (5'6", 128 lbs)
This pack is extremely well constructed, has all the bells and whistles, is highly adjustable, well padded, they really did think of everything.
Except for its weight: At almost 6 lbs empty, once packed, it was heavier than my boyfriend's 1972 Kelty Tioga which had almost twice the amount of gear I had. I'm in good shape, I'm not afraid of a heavy load but this was just too much. Would I recommmend this to a friend? No. The pack is too heavy, it's like driving a Semi through the backcountry, it makes no sense for an avid backpacker.
