      Comments about High Sierra Bobcat 65 External Frame Pack:

      I'm a Scoutmaster, bought 5 of these for our troop to lend out to boys who do not have their own packs yet. The adjustability on these packs is great. I adjusted one for a small 12 year old, and fitted one for myself (6'2", 220lbs) just to check it out and this pack worked great for both of us. Plenty of room. The # of pockets is perfect. The quality looks very good too, good stitching and properly reinforced where it needs to be. Also, this is the only pack I found in this price range and size that has load-lifters, which make a big difference on the trail.
      We just went on and overnight backpacking trip with the troop this weekend. Just a mile in, not a huge hike but the backpacks worked very well.
      The only shortcoming I could see was that the pouch for the hydration bladder requires you to lay it sideways, not vertically like most packs. This may potentially cause a problem if you have a hydration bladder that leaks from the opening where you fill it up.
      Overall this is a great pack for the price.

          really like this pack. Verry adjustable and comfortable, and well made. I wear it comfortable with 30-40lbs. Also the rain cover is a nice addition.

          Comments about High Sierra Bobcat 65 External Frame Pack:

          This was a great product. It was a little bit time consuming to adjust to my size and fit, and I may have some adjusting to do still, but once I figured it out the way it fit was perfect. I love how much space it has and it is durable and lightweight. It's great for regular/long backpacking trips. I'd recommend this to anyone!
