Does anyone have an opinion on the jansport big bear 68, 78 or 82? Why should I spend the extra money for an osprey? Is it that much better? I've never used either and am guessing the osprey is better quality and suspension.. longer lasting easier to carry.. ?? Will I regret it half way up the mountain or 5 yrs from now?

Thanks Phil, Can I fit 50 lbs in the Atmos 65? I really like this design, the light weight and the air cooled mesh, I think I can pull off a week in the Sierras with 50 lbs packing light, great for desert hikes too.. but I may want to use it for other trips where I will be carying more wt.. Too bad they dont make the Atmos 70 or 80!! I remember the aluminum frame packs were alot heavier and uncomfortable back then in 1983-84 and so was equipment.. Yes we trained extensively, I carried all most my own weight up the mtn for 25 mi. It was no prob thanks to Football and my Nazi Scout Leader ;) The Mosquito nets over the head were the ticket! Makes for tougher hiking but worth it.

I recently bought the Atmos 50 backpack and when I got it home realized that it is too small for the trips that I am planning. I am planning a 50 mile hike in the Sierra Nevada Mtns and will need to pack for a week long trip. Will the Atmos 65 be able to handle this or do I need to go bigger? I made this same trip as a teen ager and remember we had to carrry 80 lbs mostly food and equipment. I need to know what pack will be right for this trip? I tried on the Atmos 50 in the store and was sold immediately due to the lightweight, comfort fit and mesh back..
