Backpack Brands Review

    Backpack brands have proven them selfs to be useful in many diffrent situations, from everyday use to hiking or backpacking whatever the case may be you will want one that is durable and comfort is a must. Backpacks have been around for many years.Backpacks were also called rucksack, knapsack, packsack or pack no matter what you call it in its simpleist form its a bag worn on the shoulders.

    Backpacks are often preferred to handbags for carrying heavy loads or carrying any sort of equipment, because of the limited capacity to carry heavy weights for long periods of time in the hands. Large backpacks, used to carry loads over 10 kg (22 lbs), usually offload the largest part (up to about 90%) of their weight onto padded hip belts, leaving the shoulder straps mainly for stabilising the load. This improves the potential to carry heavy loads, as the hips are stronger than the shoulders, and also increases agility and balance, since the load rides nearer the wearer's own centre of mass.

    Now lets take a few minutes to look at a few diffrent backpack brands and styles of back packs. Lets start by talking about Vans brand backpacks, they have been around since 1966 making many diffrent slyles of backpacks for many diffrent uses. Vans is a leading company involved in making backpacks and much much more. Created by Paul Van Doren who already oned a rubber company at that time. It wasnt long after that Vans started to manufacture backpacks and many other items. Over the years Vans has managed to spread to 3 diffrent continents America, Asia and Europe. They sell tons of backpacks every day for many diffrent purposes from school, every day use to hiking and backpacking. Thier backpack come in a variety of sizes colors and designs. They are built durable to last a lifetime and made for comfort.

     30 years ago a company was born from 1 man's passion and that company is Gregory Mountain Products.They have been pushing forward into technalogy to provide you with maximum comfort. Their company motto is "To excel and develop the most comfortable backpacks in the world."Very well known amongst expedition leads, backpackers and everyday hikers around the world, Gregory backpacks are renowned for their style, flexibility, durability and above allsuperior fit.Built out of toughDyneema fabrics and cordura nylons, a Gregory backpack shouldl last most people a lifetime.

    Extraordinary comfort and nice desighn, Gregory backpacks are a pleasure to wear, light weight and flexible but will give you peace of mind that you are not straining your body unnecessarily.There wouldnt be much use in fancy backpack design and technology if it did not accommodate both men and women. Luckily, Gregory realise that men and womens frames are different and have developed a range of backpacks for women that arent just smaller mens packs in pretty colors. Some of the emans features are as fallows, thinner and tapered shoulder straps, narrower backpanels, narrower waistbelts, guaranteed to fit the female body shape more comfortably, Gregory backpacks for women do not compromise on the quality and functionality expected of a Gregory backpack.And yes, they are also available in a variety of pretty colors to brighten up any backpacking adventure.

     The Review: Ive been using the Torre 33L for the past 9 months. My objective was to put this joint to use and try to kick its rear, use it in every situation, and then provide feedback. So far tho this day I havent been able to damage it in the slightest. No rips, no holes, nothing. The zipper is still intact, the material is completely fine. The harness system is amazing. It is a mold that offers total support and comfort. I pack this thing with bolts, draws, my drill, a rope, harness, shoes, water, and food. NO problem. The access to the interior is SO easy with the opening design. I am in love with this pack.

    The Review: I used the Inyo 45 for an overnight backpacking trip in Yosemite with some newbies and was amazed at how much I loved it. I usually use a 60-80L pack and have been known to use that 80L for overnighters with new hikers to carry as many creature comforts for them, as possible.

I fit everything I wanted to, everything was able to be organized, all the pockets are in good places, and theres more than enough of them. And after everything was stuffed inside, it was super easy to get to it, this packs access is awesome.

The approaches when climbing were easy b/c of the narrower waistbelt, so I could be wearing my harness and still take big, scrambly steps. The smaller packs in this line are great for a sport rack, the larger accommodate a trad rack, and with 3 volume sizes, you can do any length climbing/hiking trip.
