I bought this pack based on my torso size. I am fairly small female and it is hard for me to find packs that actually fit me. This pack fits really well and is very comfortable. I like the seat feature and back support too. My only issue is the size of the cargo area. I would like to use this as my pack for multi-day trips, but I don’t think I can get enough gear packed into it. As a day pack or overnight pack it will definitely work well. It is a good pack, but I think it needs more room. I will give it a try for 3-day trip this spring.

My husband bought the larger version at an outdoor show and used as a weighted pack for training. He has been really happy with it, so I decided to get the smaller 26 version for me. I have added a sandbag to it for weighted traininig too. I really like how easy it is to switch out weight, and how secure and stable it is. It is so comfortable that I plan to use it as my regular pack for day hikes. Gotta love the seat too! I’ll definitely get another for my son in a few more years.

I am an avid outdoors person living in Utah. I am constantly either mountain biking, hiking, or running the trails. I have owned my Summit26 for about 6 weeks now and have been impressed with its performance. The pack is so lightweight that you don’t even know it is there, and I really like how stable it is while I am in motion. No sloppy pack action. I use a waterproof stuff sack to carry my stuff, which protects it perfectly against mud and moisture. I also love the convenient seat when it is time for a snack on the trail. Definitely happy with my purchase. Thanks.

I bought this pack to replace my old wornout O****y backpack. I made the change because I wasn’t happy with how my old pack carried weight, even light weight. Since the transition to my Pack Rabbit Summit 26 I have been very happy with how it handles the load. Heavy or light, it always rides the same and feels good. The harness set is comfortable and it seems to be reasonably durable. The trail seat is handy for breaks and at camp. My only real complaint is there are no external pockets for quick access. The one pocket on the back is ok for small items, but there should be a bigger pocket (or two) for larger items or even hydration. Please add some pockets.
