Backpack Gear Test

Despite my issues with the waist belt and annoyance with the zippers, I actually think that High Sierra has built a very good pack in the Long Trail 90. It is without doubt a big pack, and throughout my testing I have never felt that I was capable of filling it to capacity.

Backpack Gear Test

It is a big pack for long trails and can carry every little stuff and gear for your long trail. For those with a lager waist, the Long Trail would be a good choice if lookinf for a larger volume versatile pack.
