How We Tested Day Packs

We used and abused these packs while climbing and hiking all over the front range and Western Slope of Colorado. We used them daily to carry our things around town and on many climbing trips. We traveled with them, hiked with them, and climbed with them side by side to see how the compared in the line up. We sent three of the packs to Haiti on a hurricane relief trip to see how they'd function as personal items and while trekking in humid climates.

Come wind  rain or shine  we put these packs through the ringer.
Come wind, rain or shine, we put these packs through the ringer.

Throughout this process, we learned which packs were comfortable, which weren't, and our first impressions were totally upset.
