Offering an unbelievable bang for your buck, the High Peak Adrenaline 70+10 pack is going to become a favorite for beginner backpackers and weekend adventurers, alike. Its overall size-to-weight ratio (70 liters at 5 pounds 5 ounces) is very respectable for a pack in this price range, and it also has the option of a detachable daypack lid and ice axe holders. It is water bladder compatible. Another key feature on the Adrenaline is the rapid torso adjustment. With a flick of a lever, the Adrenaline can be fitted to a torso length of 15 to 21 inches in a matter of seconds. The comfort level on this pack will max out between 50 and 55 pounds, but when fully loaded the Adrenaline is a bit top heavy and starts to sway if not properly packed. Hits
1) A great price tag of $149
2) All the bells and whistles a weekend adventurer will ever need
3) The rapid torso adjustment system should make the Adrenaline a family favorite Misses
1) Gets a bit top-heavy when fully loaded, and extends high above the head
2) It would be great to have more than one color option Bottom Line
Overall, the High Peak Adrenaline 70+10 is going to be a top choice for backpackers on a budget, families and weekend adventures who have “on trail” and moderate distance trips in their future.

You will find that the lower sleeping bag chamber is one of the easiest to access on the market. The norm for this type of pack is a horizontal zipper, but the Adrenaline has a U shaped zipper that makes loading very quick and easy.

With matching external pockets, I was able to keep my spotting scope protected at all times. These pockets are also great for quick-access gear like water filters, maps, rain gear and sandals for creek crossings.
