There's a reason ALPS Mountaineering calls this thing the Denali Backpack—it's pretty frickin' huge. If you pack it correctly, you could take this pack into Denali National Park with your sleeping bag in the zippered bottom compartment, and your tent, layers, and bear canister in the top-loading main section. Stash a reservoir in the hydration pouch and a rain jacket in one of the two front pockets—because in AK, it's probably going to rain. But no worries—ALPS Mountaineering integrated a rain fly to keep year gear dry. Two-layer foam on the shoulder harness and a plush Hip Hugger waist belt help you carry a heavy load comfortably. The Denali adjusts quickly and easily to fit torsos between 17-23 inches.

Put some stuff in and went for a week long walk.... Worked like a charm.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I loved this bag, up until the second time I used it. I used it on one weekend trip with a low amount of weight (no more than 25lbs). Worked great, loved the rain cover and the straps felt good. Fast forward to a week long trip to Isle Royale (50 miles). My bag weighed about 40lbs MAX, by the end, one of the seams on the outside of the pack busted and one of zipper string came off. Also, the hip padding seems inadequate. At trip's end, I had the largest bruise by far out of the group on my hips. Loved the SAC price, but got what I paid for. Would be decent as a beginner bag for weekend hikes. I will probably end up letting friends use it when introducing them to backpacking.
