A vast 62L rucksack with plenty of additional storage, for those who want a little more comfort on the trail. 

Big Agnes says: 

You can pack lighter and faster with the Big Agnes Parkview 63L pack, built in two sizes, men's medium and large, to ensure proper fit and ultralight comfort on the trail. The injection molded frame sheet is anatomically engineered to fit the body for maximized support and features custom adjustments to get your fit just right. Contoured shoulder straps and hip belt attach directly to the frame for efficient load-transfer and added stability. Featuring ultralight sustainable materials paired with our unique compression system, and plenty of storage capacity for the long haul, the Parkview 63L pack was built for extended excursions without weighing you down.

Our Verdict

This is a seriously impressive bag that boasts a lot of bells and whistles, including its own “trash bag”, a very impressive fully customizable torso length adjuster, and the largest hip belt pockets I’ve ever seen, (you can get 10 small chocolate bars of your choice in one, I know I’ve tried) Unlike most in the new Big Agnes rucksack range, the Parkview comes with a removable lid. As this is the largest in the range I feel this is a good choice, tailored to multiday hikers who need a little more storage/ accessibility though it is fully removable if weight saving is your goal, as are the hip belt pockets which, as I have stated are vast, I could comfortably fit an InReach Mini, smartphone and a DSLR camera just in one pocket, the other being purely dedicated to calories.

The hip belt itself is one of the nicest I have used, it has a “cut-to-fit” belt, that leaves no gaps meaning no movement, so no irritation and the dual stabilizer straps keep the pack secure to your hips. I wouldn’t consider myself the most barrel-chested of men, but I found the sternum strap too short, it was just about long enough for me, however, that may be because I was using a medium and not the large, but something to consider when choosing a size. Whilst I’m nit-picking, I think the pack would have benefited from slightly wider shoulder straps. The external storage, the two side pockets, and the “quick stash” front pocket are enormous. when I was testing this pack, we had a real downpour during the night, after I took my tent down, a large 2-man tent, I easily fitted the tent into the side mesh pocket and also had room for my 1L water bottle. The bag sits comfortably and allows air to circulate, keeping you cool

A good bag, on the heavy end of the scale, that provides more features than most other bags in this category.
