Alps Mountaineering Caldera Backpack 5500

First off, this thing is cavernous. I recently used it to take my seven-year-old daughter with me on a backpacking trip; naturally I had to carry most of the stuff. I was able to fit a large tent, two sleeping bags, two sleeping pads, a bear vault, and all the misc stuff like cooking gear, water filter, first aid kit, etc., and STILL have room to spare. It's huge.

Second, it's very adjustable. The harness is easy to adjust, and unlike literally every other pack I've ever owned it actually will adjust to a proper size for me (I'm 6'8" and 300 lbs...picture Hodor and you're not far off). Properly adjusted it was very comfortable, even with a much heavier load than I would normally carry on the trip described above. The bottom sleeping bag compartment is handy (and was big enough to fit BOTH sleeping bags, by the way) but you can also open the horizontal divider and just make the bottom part of the main compartment if you wanted to carry your bag outside the pack. There are lots of straps on the outside for easily attaching things; the two horizontal straps in the middle of the pack are perfect for strapping your sleeping pad to the outside. Although really, the inside is so huge that you wouldn't need to in normal conditions, if you can't fit everything inside this pack you're probably carrying too much stuff.
I can't speak to long-range durability, but the stitching looks good, the zippers are heavy-duty, and it seems overall pretty decent quality, especially considering that most other packs this size that I saw were $400-$800.
