High Sierra Classic Series 75 liter backpack

Let me start off by saying that I would definitely recommend this backpack. I love the fact that it is top loading and front loading. I also like the removable day pack that doubles as the lid or top of the pack, and the sleeping bag compartment that can be zippered off on the inside of the bag to create a completely separate section. I also like that the bag comes with its own rain cover which is conveniently stored at the very bottom of the bag under the sleeping bag section. The bottom of the bag has an opening that allows you to access the rain cover by simply opening the Velcro and pulling the rain cover out. You will have to remove anything that you strap to the bottom of the bag by the two latching compression straps in order to access the rain cover opening. Having the rain cover at the bottom of the bag also provides cushion should you choose to use the sleeping bag area for other items.
Good entry level pack

I took this for my first trip last weekend to the Crosstimbers Trail on Lake Texoma. I haven’t backpacked as a civilian since 1988… lots of ruckmarches in the military but nothing recreational. This pack is incredibly comfortable. The stabilization system it has doesn’t allow for any load shifting. I almost lost my balance a few times and if it had shifted I probably would have fallen. The terrain was alot of up and down hiking. After hiking 11 miles with about 35 pounds in this pack my shoulders, back, and hips didn’t hurt at all. There’s lots of lash points and storage area in this pack. I probably won’t fill it up to capacity this year on our shorter hikes but; hopefully I’ll get to hike some longer trails once I’m in shape. We are hiking the Ouachita trail for a 3 day trip in March. I will update my review then after this longer hike. BTW, my friend I hike with bought one of these as well after seeing mine. He really liked it too. All in all this is a great pack for a good price. I agree with a few of the other reviews about the belt strap but; I’m a little more round than I used to be so… that’s probably more due to my dunlap than a problem with the belt.

I did a rain-filled week long trek on the West Coast Trail, and this pack definitely held up. My four favorite features were the multitude of compartments (so I could organize my many items), the adjustable shoulder straps, the easy-access camera/knife pocket on the shoulder straps and the pack cover which is stored on the underside of the pack (very easy to access and put away. Saved lots of time for short rain falls). I definitely recommend this pack.
I really like this pack.

I really like this pack. this is my first year into backpacking,and the High Sierra Appalachian 75 is my first backpack with any size going for it. It stores all of my gear,enough for my weekend hikes. I’m 6ft 0in tall,and overweight. The waist belt fits me just fine,the cinching straps work well for me. I’ve read other reviews that complain of this feature, I’ve not had a problem so far. The zippers seem to be stiff and hard to use, but it appears to be from the fact that their heavy duty and will ease with time and repeated use. I would definitely recommend this pack to anyone that’s in the market for a large roomy pack.
excellent quality and value

Very nice pack. This is the most versatile pack I’ve ever owned. Wonderful construction quality as well. Tether points all over it. ample pockets and sippers as well. It has two top load draw strings to help keep out water and I love the fact that it has a a zipper on the outside to access into it for small things so i dont have to open it up all the way everytime. The sleeping bag compartment on the bottom is a little bit smaller than i would have liked, but the main compartment opens up into it to allow a bigger bag to extend into the top area. (i actually use the sleeping bag area for extra clothes instead. two pairs pants, 3 shirts, and 3 pairs socks and I haved still have ample room left over.) I have it packed up to about 35 lbs now and it wears so comfortably that it feels like an extension of my back. It doesnt droop & it doesnt slide. When I first got it the zippers were very stiff only because they are so robust. but after a short amount of use they seem to work without any problems now. The warranty from high sierra was my main reason for buying this item. But it seems to be built well enough i should NEVER have to use it. I would DEFINATELY purchase this product again. Better than most bags that are double the price.
