Most of our used packs come from our rental inventory and fit the needs of most of our customers - those going on casual weekend or longer backpacking trips. We carry several makes and models within this line, mostly models from Osprey and Deuter - top-quality brands that are durable and fit well as you rack up miles on the trail.
We retire them from renting when the pack incurs a small tear or otherwise has some aesthetic issues - they all work just fine, but appearance-wise may not be ideal to keep as a rental. Unless otherwise specified, all buckles, zippers and straps are intact; the only issues would potentially be minor mesh holes or stains. See the accompanying photos for examples of some conditions a pack may have as used. Prices at our retail store may be higher or lower than shown online as we specifically adjust store used gear prices to the condition.
Most of the packs we have are the Volt 60 from Osprey and the ActLite 65 from Deuter, if you want to check them out elsewhere online. These packs have a lot of comfortable padding, weigh in under 4 pounds or so and have a capacity of around 3500 -4000 cubic inches (mostly 60-70 liter range). We usually have used packs in great shape from other brands as well that customers have dropped off with us on trade or consignment - just stop by or give us a call and we can share what's on hand at that time.
We offer a 10-day-from-purchase satisfaction guarantee on our backpacks - if the condition of the pack isn't satisfactory for the price you paid, return it within 10 days of ordering and we'll refund the cost of the item and any ship-to-you costs charged. Or, just rent a pack instead!
