Trail Elite™ 22L Backpack is rated out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by captnmo from Better than I expected. I love this backpack. It's lighter and more functional than I expected. I intended to use it mostly for hiking but I also ended up using it for work. I fly for the Navy and recently traveled all over the Pacific Theater. I used it for pretty much everything on day trips including food, clothes, flight gear, etc. It was also great to get out with on my days off and see the sights. It's very hot and humid there and this pack was light and very breathable. I was caught several times in heavy rain and the rain cover worked great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Burrito from Great for backpacking Nice size for backpacking, light comfortable, you do have to set all the straps to your body type but after it's all set this is a very comfortable backpack for everyday use and great for backpacking. It's not really large enough for hiking but enough for most wilderness or commuting trips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Viridirain from Works well with one caveat This backpack with backdraft using the aluminum rods works really well in providing a secure and comfortable fit for long periods of time. However, the shape of the aluminum rods protrude inside of the backpack and make packing things a little awkward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmoha from excellent workmanship! This backpack exceeded my expectations. It was small, yet powerful. The strong and durable materials make this product one I will utilize for a very long time. Plenty of space for all my necessities needed for a few hours of hiking. Will buy others for my loved ones!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob20 from Trail Elite 22L Having owned all varieties of high end backpacking packs, I can confidently say that Columbia's Trail Elite is on par with any of the best in terms of its construction. Features such as pockets for small items and the integral rain fly are thoughtfully included, and its size adjustments provide a secure fit. I would observe that it fits a relatively large size range of users; I am a 5'8, 165 pound male and virtually all of the straps are tightened to almost the end of their capacity. It is extremely comfortable to wear while carrying a good amount of weight- the waistband is ventilated in a manner that would have improved other packs I have owned. Overall, it is exceptional product that serves well as an overnight pack or a daily commuter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Corpsman09355 from Great pack I was worried from the images that the zippers would not be rainproof because what you cant see is that they are the wax zippers with a clear rubber over the top that fully seals when zipped closed, once I saw that I was supper happy with the online purchase. To make it better it even comes with a rain cover built in to the bottom, which is a little redundant but entirely welcome on days the rain is really swamping and you want that little extra peace of mind. Outer black material is or appears to be rainproof as well so as far as water is concerned, this is a decent pack and i would take it hiking/camping/commuting without a second thought. I love the 3L water pouch compatible, (I put a 100oz camelbak antidote long in and it works great) and I love that I can also toss some bottles in the outer drink pouches for soda or whatever. So hydration is covered. I cant say much about wear and tear yet, the material seems somewhat delicate although not majorly, just enough that I am a little wary of really abusing it like I would my military gear. The straps and fastenings are well thought out in placement, and they run a little long for my tastes but that was quickly solved by rolling/folding them and wrapping them with velcro cable strips. The frame and bag sit well on me (Im 5,9") but it did take a while to accept that it sat a little lower then I normally would place it due to the frame vs a plain non frame pack, but it's actually been quite comfortable. I know some people were conplaining that you cant take the saddle/waist wraparounds off, for me they fold in on theirselves just fine without my needing to strap in to them and dont bother me or bulge when worn unstrapped. The only detraction I have about this pack is that the frame is very solidly placed and near impossible to remove let alone put back in...I did manage to both remove and replace it but it was so tight I was actually worried it was going to bust the seams...so...it felt better wearing with the frame then not and thats the way I will leave it. With that said, the frame has quite a curvature to it, so much so that it makes the interior fairly confined for loose placement of things, including the camelbak watter bladder, but its a well made bag and when Ive had the need Ive been able to stuff stuff in it pretty well and not be concerned about busting a seam or zipper. The techlite shoulder straps are light, cushioned, and very nice in the 100+degree weather that it allows just enough air flow to not drench you under the straps, same with the back, both the padding and mesh are well placed to project the pack away from your back and let air flow keep you cool with the frame. I carry both a folio and 13"macbook air in it with the camelbak, small med kit, quick snack, and room for a jacket or rain gear and it fits my needs. I almost want a padded compartment for my macbook but it would bulk out the pack unnecessarily in the times I didnt need my macbook with me. Easily solved by buying a neoprene sleeve and calling it good. All in all, I would buy it again without reservation. Oh, and one more thing I really liked about this pack is that it's conservative, nice simple clear small logos, no huge flashy garrish logos as big as a billboard looking like an art majors idea of expressionism going on here. I can easily take this to a business meeting as well as a weekend with mother nature.
