I want to confirm Wandering Bob's recommendation of BackpackingLight.com as
an excellent source of impartial reviews of backpacking equipment. My
purchase of a P-2 pack preceded their recently released Internal Frame
Backpack Review by several months, but I find that their assessment of the
P-2 is right on--including the criticisms. Yes it is a pay site, but I
consider it a sort of Consumer Reports for backpackers and for me too the
$25 yearly fee is worth it.
Backpackgeartest.org is a free site and another great source of information
about backpacking gear. I bought my P-2 due to the favorable reports from
their testers and have not regretted my decision. I am not suggesting that
they too become a pay site however.
