Many weekend ultralight and Boy Scout camping trips later my G4 keeping going strong after a decade, from very lightly filled for winter overnights to 50+ lbs when helping out new Scouts. (Posted on 1/2/16)
Good pack!Review by Jay

I have the most recent model of the G4. Its a great backpack. This year it showed its true colors on the Tahoe Rim Trail. The girlfriend got super sick (throwing up ect...) and could barely walk. I ended up emptying her pack and filing the G4 with my gear and ALL her gear. It wasn't the most comfortable hauling about 45 lbs of gear. However, that goes to say that the pack is really large. So if you are looking for ultralight 3-5 day packs you probably could go smaller. Anyways, it makes for a great winter pack because big down fluffy items always like to fill up a pack. If you are an ultralight backpacker, pick this pack for winter gear! (Posted on 12/26/15)
Light, Inexpensive, Perfect.Review by Outdoor Thor

I hike/fish/hammock camp 2-4 days every week, all year long. I've had my G4 for 3 years now, and it's the only pack I ever take. It compacts easily for my 9lb summer load, and still comfortably supports my 35lb deep winter load. The giant outside pockets make mid-hike fishing, lunches, and quick rain-gear grabs a cinch. I research my gear quite carefully, and I rely heavily on reviews. Imho, unless you only day hike or are oblivious to weight in your other gear selections, there's no reason to ever buy another pack.

A great entry level UL pack, but needs workReview by Jupiter

This was my first ultralight frameless pack. I liked it quite a bit at the time. Soon to see its rather wide, and would catch on plants that encroached on the sides of the trail. A narrower profile would be a great change.

Not the most durable pack but for the price, but it's still a great value if you're looking into ultralight backpacking. I would worry about it lasting an entire thru hike though.

I feel for the total amount of weight this pack can handle comfortably a smaller size would be really awesome. It's really cavernous. Even when first pairing my gear down to lighter weights I had much room left inside.

I would love to see a 30-35 liter G5. I think for the truly minimalist style of this pack that would be incredibly awesome.

Overall a good pack, but maybe a bit big for what it is. For a 1lb budget pack I give it 4 stars overall. (Posted on 11/5/15)

I have only done two trips with the pack and so far I really like it, I stay around 25 lbs for 2-3 day trips and the pack has some room to spare (3 season). The mesh pocket is great for wet stuff, and I got two shoulder and two hip belt pockets for quick access and organization. I recommend it. (Posted on 5/11/15)

Surprisingly comfortable, great backpack.Review by Brett P

I've stuffed up my G4 and taken it on a few day hikes and overnights in perpetration for my next long trip. It is really comfortable. I use gossamer gears sleeping pad as a frame and it sits well on my hips. With the hip belt, sleeping pad and sternum strap, a lot of weight is taken off my shoulders. Normally I would wish for a couple extra features, but this backpack is just as simple as can be, and works perfectly. I am happy with the weight of this pack. With the gossamer gear sleeping pad it really brings my pack weight down. Definitely a pack worth looking into if the minimalistic design works for you! (Posted on 3/26/15)

I just received my new G4 in black and its perfect. Its going to replace my DIY pack I made 20 years ago. Thanks for the simple, useful design.

I've only used it for hauling items home from the library an grocery store, but have plans later this winter for a ski trip to the BWCA and a spring thru hike of the superior hiking trail. (Posted on 12/22/14)
New Black G4 vs older G4's?Review by Darryl

I just received my all black G4. I have 2 others (dk green) that I bought within the last 4 years that I just love. I also own 2 of the older & lighter Mariposas. Black looks really cool but I noticed that this newer pack does not have the Velcro shoulder straps that allows the user to add more padding like my other G4s. Not so sure I want to take this newer pack on a trip now as I am a older guy and do like the option of adding additional padding. (Bubble wrap). I also don't see the "made in USA" tag as on my other G4 packs so maybe the manufacturer has changed. Still a very good pack and the value is great but maybe no longer a tremendous value without having the ability to add padding and maybe not made in the USA?. (Posted on 11/28/14)
