    I am new to backpacking and bought this pack as a good middle range option. The size and compartments are perfect, and the outside straps are superior to my son’s more expensive backpack. I can fit all my gear for 3 nights of hiking in this pack easily. One concern is that one of the zippers and a cinch drawstring broke after only 3 hikes. I was disappointed because based on the reviews, I expected this to be a rugged, if slightly heavy, pack. I emailed pictures to Teton customer service, and to my surprise they mailed me a new pack! This is a product the company stands by. Very pleased so far. Taking an AT hike later this year along with several shorter hikes. I will update this review with that information. For now, I’m a pleased backpacker.

    I’ve had this backpack for a few months now and I love it! As someone just getting started in backpacking, I was looking for the best quality I could get without breaking the bank. This pack has exceeded my expectations. First off, I have several Teton Sports products and love them! I have their Trailhead Ultralight sleeping bag (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JTLKCC/) and it fits perfectly in the Hiker 3700 sleeping bag compartment without needing any additional compression straps. The main compartment is surprisingly large. I can pack three days of food, stove, pot, fuel, extra clothes and a sleeping pillow (Teton Sports ComfortLite) with room to spare. The pouch on top is perfect for items you use more often or when taking a quick break (i.e. first aid kid, snacks, maps, etc.). The pouch on the waist belt is great for stuff you need without taking the pack off (compass, camera & phone).A few additional details that may help people:1.) I’m 6’3” and 220 lbs. I think I’m pushing the limit on the height limit for this bag. It’s still comfortable when wearing but I really need another inch or so for an absolute perfect fit. If you’re over 6’ tall, make sure you measure your torso length. My torso is 22” and I’m right at the limit (maybe a little over).2.) The description on Amazon states this pack will hold a 2.5L hydration bladder but Teton Sports says it will handle 3.0L on their website. After receiving a VERY quick and courteous response from Teton Sports, I ordered the 3.0L Platypus Big Zip (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001KZGYLS/) taking their word on it. Not only does the 3.0L fit with a Sawyer inline filter (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0034VR8ES/) attached, but there’s room to spare.3.) The description says this pack is good for a 3 or 4 day outing which is probably accurate for a newbie like me. I think you could probably get enough supplies for a longer outing if you know what you’re doing.4.) I have the Teton Sports XXL self-inflating sleeping pad (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009L1MF7A/) which easily straps on the outside of this pack and you hardly know it’s there. I plan on getting the regular size pad once I start doing more extended hikes where size and weight starts to make a real difference.All in all, this is a fantastic backpack. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for good quality and many features at an affordable price.

    Excellent pack, especially for the price! I bought this last fall but wanted to wait until I took it backpacking before writing this review.In the meantime I took it on 3 car-camping trips and was very happy with how roomy the upper compartment was and the location and size of the external pockets. The 2 pockets in the lid are large enough to hold a lot of smaller gear and personal items; really helped me stay organized. I also bought the Teton Ultralight +5 Sleeping bag and, YES, it does fit into the lower sleeping bag compartment…but just barely. So make sure your sleeping bag has its own compressible stuff sack and can be compressed fairly small.The attached rain cover came in handy during a brief rain shower and is easily accessible.FINALLY, this past weekend I took it out on the trail; Maddron Bald Loop, 17.3 miles, difficulty 4 and 5 out of 5, Great Smoky Mountains.The hip belt is super comfortable. I am 6’0″ and lanky so most hip belts start to become uncomfortable on my bony hips. But this belt fits and wears perfectly.This is my first pack with a water bladder compartment: it (plus a good water bladder) is a godsend!I struggled a little the first day trying to get the shoulder and chest straps, etc. adjusted properly for my narrow frame. But these straps are easily adjustable while hiking so overall I was very happy with the fit and comfort.I even used the heavy canvas carrying loop on the back of the bag to hoist my entire pack into the air from a tree to ‘bear proof’ it for the night while sleeping.Although I’ve only put the pack to the test once so far, and Maddron Bald is definitely a good test, the zippers and stitching seem to be very durable and I believe this pack should last me for a very long time.And for less that $80! Comparable packs I was looking at were starting around $110.I am super pleased with this pack and the sleeping bag I purchased.Teton Sports has made a new and loyal customer out of me!The attached pic is at back country site 29 on the Maddron Bald Loop.
