Wilderness Technology is a quality private brand shared by Recreation Outlet in Salt Lake City, Utah and Next Adventure in Portland, Oregon. Both companies are donating $5 for each Sagarmatha 16 pack that they sell to the non-profit foundation The Juniper Fund. This money will help to support the families of these and other deceased Sherpa’s. In a country where the average annual salary is only about $700, these funds can be of immense help.
We would like to encourage you, as someone who appreciated both the magnificence and the demands of the wild outdoors, to make your own donation to this worthwhile cause. You can go online at thejuniperfund.org to offer your support.
The Wilderness Technology Sagarmatha 16 75+10 liter backpack is made of durable nylon and fabric, perfect for a multi-day trip. This backpack features a head notch and an internal back panel micro-adjustment harness system.
Weight: 4lbs, 12oz.

I got this pack about a year and a half ago at Recreation Outlet and I really love it. The quality is fantastic. They really took a lot of time to think about what backpackers would need when they put this pack together. The pack is a mammoth. It has a lot more storage space than you would imagine and can carry everything you could wish for a backpacking trip. The built-in rain cover works fantastic and the removable top lid is a really great feature if you don't want to carry a day-hike pack or something to summit with (like a camelpack) because it becomes a fanny pack if needed.
I've only seen two issues that I have with the pack. The first is that the hydrbladder storage compartment is in one of the side pockets of the pack which doesn't make a whole lot of sense because as you drink your water it forces your pack to become off balance so I don't even use it and instead use a carabiner to hook my MSR bladder on to the pack which works fantastic. The second issue I have is that there are no waist pockets on the belt which is slightly annoying because I find waist pockets to be extremely useful but not having them isn't really the end of the world and wouldn't be difficult to attach some of you wanted.
Other than those two things this pack really is fantastic and I would recommend it for anyone who's looking for a great pack at low cost with great quality workmanship.
