I review the Eddie Bauer Highpoint 30 backpack as a mountain climbing summit pack review. This inexpensive pack has served me well and it’s one of my choices when I climb easy to moderate peaks like Mt. Borah in Idaho or even Mt. Hood in good conditions. I show you the technical aspects, what it can hold, and what it cannot do. I give the good points and the downsides to give a fair and balanced review.
