Mountainsmith's PCT 45 backpack is a smaller volume cousin to their AT 55 backpack and part of their Treklite series (the CDT 45 - a backpack designed for women - is also in this series). It's a feature rich backpack designed to carry good-sized heavy loads. With the PCT 45, Mountainsmith has tried to craft a pack that will suit the needs of both on-trail and off-trail users who need to carry high density/low volume loads. Perhaps they have also attempted to fill the perceived needs of too many groups of consumers. In trying to be a backpack for too many types it has missed the mark in some areas, but for many this may well be a very valuable backpack.
