High Sierra Review and Giveaway



Buying bags can sometimes be difficult. There are so many kinds and brands to choose from. But one thing that I look for a bag is its versatility. I cannot afford to buy different kinds of bags, so I want to be able to use it different ways. I also make sure that both my husband and I will be able to use it. That is why I love my new High Sierra Spire 2500.




  • 25-Liter, panel-load main compartment.
  • Quick-release, adjustable tuck-away webbing straps for vertical snowboard carry.
  • Adjustable webbing straps on top and bottom for diagonal ski carry.
  • Large zippered front pocket holds a shovel blade and essential snow tools.
  • S-shaped shoulder straps with high-density foam padding, adjustable sternum strap and removable media/cell phone pocket.
  • Internal hydration reservoir sleeve and insulated hydration tube pocket on the shoulder strap helps keep water from freezing (reservoir not included).
  • Single, contoured aluminum frame bar can be adjusted to fit the shape of your back.
  • Padded back panel with adjustable waist belt.
  • Tricot-lined accessory pocket holds goggles or other necessities
  • Soft lashing hardware holds an ice ax or hiking poles.
  • Dual side pockets hold beverages or gear.
I've used my new High Sierra Spire 2500 as a diaper bag. It comes with tons of compartments, perfect for organizing my things and my kids stuff. It really helps finding what you need instead of everything is all mixed up and you end up digging inside the bag. The dual side pockets are perfect for Emma's bottles or Olivia's sippy cups. I love that the straps are well padded. It also has padded back and adjustable waist belt. It gives you a lot of support when carrying heavy things and does not gives you back or shoulder pain.

The High Sierra Spire 2500 is also perfect for snowboarding since it has adjustable tuck-away webbing straps to carry snowboard vertically. My husband did not get to try this yet since snowboarding season is over. But he is looking forward to use it next year.

The adjustable tuck-away webbing straps are not just for snowboards. You can actually attach anything! My brother has been using it for a week now as a camera bag. He use the webbing straps to hold his tripod and umbrella stand. The bag is well padded which protects his lenses.

Those are just a few ways you can use the High Sierra Spire 2500. I'm sure there are more ways I can use this bag!

If you are looking for bags, luggages or duffel bags look no further, High Sierra has everything you need. They make shopping very easy because everything is categorized.
