Haven’t seen many reviews on this pack, but wanted to pass what I had on to you. I usually shy away from packs that weigh over 4 lbs. But have to say I’m interested in this. Looks pretty durable and like the design.

According to Eastern Mountain Sports:

With a pack as well-designed and comfortable as the EMS Wapack 60, you’ll wish you could quit your job and just be a full-time backpacker instead (as if that thought has never crossed your mind before!).



  • Adjustable suspension uses a simple Velcro closure and measurement markings to provide a precise, customizable fit
  • Wide, padded, ergo-pull hipbelt secures load to the hips for comfortable and efficient carrying
  • Sliding sternum strap keeps the pack stable on your back; includes safety whistle
  • Padded mesh backpanel provides breathability and comfort; dual stays and PE frame sheet provide stability and support
  • Top loading main compartment with drawcord; floating lid extends to accommodate an overload
  • Separate, zippered sleeping bag compartment keeps your bag easily accessible and away from the rest of your gear
  • Backpanel sleeve with hanger accommodates a hydration reservoir; hose can be routed through a slot on either side of the pack
  • Dual front zippered pockets keep smaller gear organized and within easy reach
  • Stretch mesh side pockets are perfect for storing water bottles
  • Bottom compression straps allow you to attach a tent or sleeping pad to the outside of the pack
  • Side compression straps provide load stability and help minimize pack volume
  • Low-profile daisy chain on the front lets you attach extra gear to the outside of the pack
  • Gear loops with bungee tie-offs keep hands free and your trekking poles/ice tools safe and secure
