    The waist belt is too large, and I have had a little trouble getting the pack to rest on my pack the right way. Otherwise, it's a great deal, and I would recommend it to anyone not needing to carry it for more that a few days max at a time. Very well built!

      Comments about High Sierra Sentinel 65 Backpack:

      Used the pack for the first time last week on a four day trip. Plenty of room for gear but the waist band is huge. I'm 6'2 165lbs with a 32" waist and I had it cinched almost as tight as I could get it. It worked OK but would be better for a heavier person, I think. The small outside rear back pocket isn't particularly functional except for a map or rain gear perhaps, tho' it might work well to hold a climbing rope between it and the pack itself. (shame it cannot be detached). Overall great value

          Went on a 5 Day Trip in the Grand Canyon and bought this pack specifically for the trip. For 65L it did the trick. My only complaints (which were not many) were the adjustments sometimes slipped on the back adjustment and I wish there were 1 more outside compartment. These were minor as this pack shined for all 5 days

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          diane o  My old Lowes of25 years ago, which was a great bag finally started to show signs of wear. I was a much smaller woman then and it doesn't fit. researching other choices I found great pictures and reviews of the high sierra. complaints by smaller folks regarding the waist band sold me.price helped also. color doesn't matter to me. High Sierra has a pretty good reputation. I just think I may have lucked out is all. Lets hope it is in good shape when I get it and meets expectations.
          k l  I'm about 5'7 1/2, 153 lb, 30inch waist. im going to backpack in europe for 21 days (not camping). should i forgoet about this backpack? (since i saw a few comments regarding it's waist belt not fitted for ppl under 32 inch waist...) i really like the design and functionality (great rain cover that's useful for checking in at the airport as well) thanks all.
          ROLLAND R  I absolutely love this pack! Very durable. I've had it for 4 years and 2 months ago, used it to backpack across the Grand Canyon. You and I are almost the same size. I'm 5'8", 158 lbs with 31 inch waist. I had to pull the hip straps all the way in (before putting on the pack) and it fits. 30 inch waist will be close. I highly recommend this pack. For the price, and all the features, I would recommend ordering and trying it. If it doesn't fit, return it. Maybe you could eat a lot of delicious buttery crossiants while in Europe and then the pack will fit just right. :)
          Shopper  i have a 30 inch waist (at least for the pants i wear that's what usually fits) should i be concerned with the fit?
          NEIL D  The issue with this pack is the length of the waist straps. They are far too long. (Cannot imagine the focus group that helped put the spec together for this). I have to hike with the excess waist straps looped and tucked on themselves. Good pack. Good value.
