Summer in Montana means multiday backpacking trips—but not everyone wants to drop a few hundo on a fancy pack. One affordable alternative is Eureka’s Rocky Peak 50+10L. All the standard features—padded hip belt, sternum strap, hydration sleeve, top lid that doubles as a day pack, et al—combine with a few extras to make the Rocky Peak a solid pack for the beginner and intermediate backpacker alike. The 50-liter size (10 more in the top flap) hold everything needed for up to a week in the backcountry. I liked the side pockets for quick access to smaller items and the mesh flap for stashing a raincoat or fleece. The side tunnel pockets held my fishing rod secure and accessible at the same time, and the built-in rain cover was pretty handy during afternoon thundershowers. I found the Rocky Peak surprisingly comfortable and more than adequate for all my backcountry trips—and even more satisfying was the extra $200 in my pocket. $130; eurekatent.com
