Mammut Creon Light Backpack
$160, 2 lbs 5 oz (32-liter size), www.mammut.com
At 32 liters, this sleek pack is a great fastpacking size for two to four days out. Testers noted minimum bouncing with a full load and appreciated how the trampoline-style suspension (which also provides great breathability) sucked in comfortably to the lower back. They also praised the adjustable back length, which allowed for an optimum fit on different-sized testers. The Creon features a large zippered top pocket, elastic side and front/stuff-it pockets, z-compression side straps, zippered main-compartment access and a generous zippered waist-belt pouch.
