Best Budget Backpack: Osprey Packs Rook 65 Backpacking Pack

Our Review:

Your friends invited you on a backcountry camping trip and you're excited to go but really not sure this is for you. Or you're on a tight budget and want to make those dollars stretch. Or you're Scrooge McDuck and the thought of dropping several hundred dollars on a backpack makes you cringe. Buy this Osprey backpack. Is it as high-quality as other Osprey backpacks? No. But it will do the job and at an incredible price. Much better than taking a chance on some fly-by-night company or over-investing in a more expensive backpack you may never use again.
