Product Description
high_sierra Designed with a large gear capacity, plenty of hydration features, organizational pockets and dividers, and stabilizing straps and frame, the Bobcat 65 External Frame pack gives you all the gear space you need without sacrificing form and comfort. Its top-load main compartment has a 65-liter capacity and features a gusseted drawstring closure and adjustable top lid, allowing you to pack all the way up to the top and still keep your gear secure and protected. Front-load compartment with divider keeps your sleeping bag separate and easy to access. Contoured backpack straps feature adjustable load-lifters to fit trimmer torsos. Straps and waist belt are designed with VAPEL mesh padding to wick away moisture. Stretched-mesh back panel back panel with large AIRFLOW system helps keep your back cool and dry. The Bobcat 65 keeps you well hydrated thanks to its internal hydration reservoir sleeve (reservoir not included), dual exit ports for tube, and mesh water bottle pocket (holds one 1000ml water bottle). Convenient zippered pockets on padded waist belt are ideal for quick-reach items. Slick, die-cut daisy chain details are perfect for attaching any extra gear that can't fit in the large, gusseted front pocket. Removable media pocket on backpack strap makes it easy to reach your phone or media player. Adjustable sternum strap stabilizes pack. Tuck-away rain cover, stored in a bottom pocket, protects the pack when checked for air travel. Mini-Diamond Ripstop and Mini-Weave Duralite construction.

Comments about High Sierra Bobcat 65 External Frame Backpack:

I always carry a external frame pack.
This pack rides well and is comfortable while loaded heavy.
I have hiked with it loaded as heavy as 57lbs and it works just fine. I am 5'10 inches at 230lbs with a 40 inch waist and this pack fits me perfect. It has plenty of storage and pocket space.
My lower pocket did seem to be sewn slightly uneven but is hardly noticable.
I would like to be able to get my water bottle out of it since I prefer them over a hydration pack, but if your going solo hiking you will need to use a bladder unless you want to take your pack off to retrieve your water bottle.
The rainfly just isnt big enough to cover the entire bag so the corners will get wet in a rain storm. The sternum strap is on a slip adjustment sytem so it tends to slide up once the pack is broken in so find your own hike with that one lol.
I have removed the pocket bar and several inches of the long webbing adjustments and a few buckles and havee my pack down to a happy 5lb weight empty.
This pack isn't the best one on the market but with a little break in and loading it at 35lbs I have a super comfortable, external frame tank that I would'nt trade for any other on the market.
