When it comes to backpacking, you can never have enough space and most backpacks that are intended for camping or hiking do not have enough room for everything. You need to carry a lot of gear, especially if you are spending a few days out in the wilderness. Luckily, the Mountaintop Backpack has 40 liters of space for you to use.
What makes this backpack different from all of the other ones out there is that it does two things that makes it work perfectly for camping – allows you to fit all of your gear easily because of how much it holds, and straps securely to you with padding so that you can carry all of that gear comfortably.
The only potential drawback with this product is that it isn’t water proof. Obviously, for winter camping and for backpacking where water fording is required or when a sudden rainstorm might hit, this would be a useful feature. You can always cover the pack with some type of tarp or rain cover however, to keep the water out.
In addition, some of the pockets are too small to put very many things in, particularly when it comes to camp gear. Even though it holds 40 liters of gear, you might only be able to fit 30 or 35 liters in the larger compartments and pockets. This might be a problem for some people.
For approximately $35 this backpack is a steal, plus you get free shipping. You can choose from any of the eleven colors – the price won’t change.
The bottom line here is that this is a very good backpack that has gotten terrific reviews and will do the job better than most of the backpacks on the market. You can probably find a better backpack out there that has more space, but you aren’t going to be able to find it for this price. All in all, this is a no brainer purchase for a camping or hiking pack.
