Love my pack!
Date: June 4, 2017
I love my Pinnacle backpack. I've had it for over 2 years and it's been on several backpacking trips with me. In general, I think its a great pack, but I'm not sure I'd recommend it for longer trips or thru hikes. First, the pockets are a bit inaccessible. There are no pockets on the waist straps, so you can't access a phone or snacks unless you take the pack off. Additionally, part of the front pocket's zipper is covered by the top pocket/flap, so you have to unbuckle a few straps to reach the front pocket. The front pocket is also very shallow, so with a full pack, the contents all fall out every time I unzip it. Last, the straps rub on the plastic loops and the material squeaks, so its a noisy hike! Overall, it has held up really well and shows minimal wear and tear.
