I am head over heels excited to bring you a wonderful review I had the chance to do on the impeccable High Sierra sport company. I’ve been on the hunt for a nice sized pack for hiking and backpacking for the past few months, and finally found a great one. I sure would have loved to have it when I was on that long 3 hour hike uphill on Mount Fairview when we visited Lake Louise, Alberta this summer!
I do have a bit of a qualm about this pack. It doesn’t rest nicely on my neck and I wouldn’t be able to hike with it wearing a teeshirt. A jacket would be fine. But having the shirt on, it irritated my neck a bit. However, I must admit — it’s still brand new and with a bit of wear I’m sure it will fit great on my body!
Browsing through other company websites, I narrowed down my choice to High Sierra as I thought they had the best selection to what I was looking for. I ended up contacting them just before Christmas to see if I could do a review and giveaway on this website of mine, and they surprisingly but oh so gladly agreed! I was on cloud nine when they accepted my request. See? I so love you guys!

The Chipotle (orange) color is the one that I have for one lucky loyal reader/winner of mine! The other is for me to — of course tell you all about, and try out for myself!
This is when I first received the packs, I couldn’t wait to snap a picture on my regular camera so the blackberry was in charge. What beaut’s eh? Clearly I’m a huge fan of orange packs as my gym bag is orange too!
All in all, the pack is extremely well constructed to carry an array of products from heavy to lightweight. You can bet your dollar that I’ll be bringing this pack to Ironman Canada with us for our my vacation this year! As an active couple, Scott and I — we benefit highly from a great product such as this High Sierra Sport Company backpack, and I am so glad I got to review and represent their company on my website.
