My Trail Backpacker LT 70 Liter Ultralight Backpack On Trail Review

One of my dreams is to do some long distance hiking like the PCT and I will need specific gear to make it a better experience. This video is on the My Trail Co. Backpacker LT 70 ultralight backpack. After watching many Youtube videos on especially the PCT I have seen a need for a pack just like this one. I may at times need a pack that will carry heavier weights nicely like when there is a long water source distance, or the ability to carry more gear like a bear canister or winter gear. This trip I loaded it to about 40lbs with camera gear and other gear I was doing reviews on for Youtube. I loved how it carried the weight, especially the way the hip belt felt. At a lighter pack load, this pack would perform beautifully. The construction and materials used are top notch.

The BPL 70 is two packs in one. Created with comfort in mind, it has a great suspension for bulky loads and its ComPacktor system quickly converts it from your odyssey workhorse to a 25L day pack.

The BPL 70 is packed with light features you’ll love, from the dual compartment front hip pockets to the roll top closure. And it’s tough: the white Dyneema® threads are 3x stronger than Kevlar and 15x stronger than steel.

Holy jezz it looks like the clips on the bottom to compress it down to a 25l pack are still clipped in place and its really bugging me! Haha. Maybe it’s supposed to be like that. Either way you got everything in there and it looks like a great pack. Considering picking one up purely for its simplicity. Great video thanks!

Chris Turnbull says:

Is this pack considered frameless or does it just have foam padding or some sort of stout frame on the inside for support?

Eric Other says:

Nice, Bruce.

Richard Jones says:

I was having a heck of a time trying to adjust my monitors color on this video. I was thinking Bruce wouldn’t be seen in a powder blue girls pack but alas I was wrong, When your blue Jockey brand boxer briefs were sticking out of your hiking shorts I new it wasn’t my monitor. All kidding aside, that is a nice pack. Do you plan on taking your Hilleberg Enan on the PCT hike?

mudbone says:

How wide and how padded are the shoulder straps on this pack? Also, is there any webbing on the shoulder straps to attach a water bottle holder?

Earthbound Alchemy says:

Cool pack. The scenery was beautiful.

Backpacking With Jason says:

Good job on the review. Beautiful scenery.

The Backpack Blazer says:

The pack appears great but wow what a beautiful area.

Matty Outdoors says:

Love the tent making a cameo, and appreciate folks who leave that kind of real life moment in a video, because they do happen when you’re trying to film something!

And WOW the colour on that pack. I would buy one just for the colour alone! How robust do you think the material is? Would it hold up to any serious bushwhacking?

The Wasatch Gear Review says:

Great lookin’ pack Bruce! Thanks for all the info on the pack. I think I’ll look into it!
