The Golite Packs For Going Fast

There's a range of Golite packs suitable for various adventure seekers and like all of Golites gear, it does lightweight very well.

We take a look at some of the best sellers from the range including the Jam pack to see how they perform and what consumers report.

The company has won numerous awards for innovative gear from many top magazines and has impressed us that love preserving the outdoors by being named in Backpackers Magazine 2010 for the green award winner.

Golite Packs - Our Top Picks

This is our picks from the best Golite backpacks to provide you with an idea of the best sellers on the market today.

Golite Jam Pack

The light and fast Jam pack is a frameless backpack that is one of the lightest on the market for a 50L light loader for extended or short backpacking and hiking trips.

Weighing only 1 lb. 15 oz. expect minimal features but superior design which will not suit all of us but many love it, especially those that want simplicity and less weight.

You’re likely to carry 25lb or less in this pack and save 2 or 3 pounds in weight from the pack itself compared to other models.

A nice feature is a double wishbone hip belt connection that places the weight onto your hips and legs, instead of your shoulders and back.

There's a lot of tidy features that the Golite Jam pack has which is going to make the lightweight backpacker consider this as an option and we suggest they do.

Pinnacle Pack

The Pinnacle is another no frills light as they come backpack that can be filled for a week’s trip or us e the Compacktor system to reduce your pack’s volume to a day hiking carrier.

The advertised weight is 2lb 1oz (935g) which is light enough for a 72L pack of this quality.

Similar to the Jam pack these are designed for those that like to maximise activity with the basic fundamentals a pack needs.

This pack has plenty of options for storage that most users have found remarkable which includes a larger front pocket for bulky gear, two side pockets that stretch for 1 liter bottles and poles for trekking, twin ice axe loops, and side compression straps that release to be converted for sleeping pads, snowboards, or snowshoes.

The Pinnacle is a great option for those wanting a lightweight pack for extended trips that is priced reasonably at around $175.

Quest Pack

These Golite packs are for those that need to carry lots of gear for week long backcountry trips with the comfort factor being a high priority.

This has many of the features that the above Pinnacle Golite backpack has and more to help support the extra weight to be carried.

The maximum suggested load is 45 lbs. / 20 kg and the volume is 4392 in. / 72 liters, with an internal frame to support the weight.

Unlike the two packs above this has many other packs that a consumer could compare this one too to make sure they are getting the best suited pack for the money.

There is no doubt that this is another great option from the Golite backpacks range and users would agree but we would advise a buyer to compare other models or brands to make sure the pack has the right features.
