      Truck bag/Scout Organizer

      Huge bag. Seems well made. I'm not really planing to backpack with this bag(I have ultra light gear for that). I'm using this for what I call a Truck bag. It keeps items I need for scout camping and rank advancemnt organized and available. I have carried it about a mile with 70# of gear and it feels good on the body. In the bottm compartment I keep a 35 degree bag with a UL Tent, tarp, and ground sheet so I can always just grab this and camp or I have backup incase someone else forgets something. Mostly I keep items in here for quick access and will then switch them out to my day pack as mission requirments dictiate. (Photo is of fully loaded pack with a Teton Adv Reg Cot (20#) loaded on top, + 2 Devos Lightranger tripods and 3 empty 5gal water cans haning off the back.) It can carry a load if you can.

      Best bang for the buck.

      I’ve been looking for a good backpacking pack to replace my old Jansport relic. I’m a big guy, 6’6”, 250 and not many options under $200. This bad boy has all the bells and whistles and then some I never thought of, lightweight and durable as all ****, all under $120. I found mine at Sportsman’s warehouse and thought I stumbled across a pricing error. No, that’s just Teton being awesome again. Best in the biz.

      85L Explorer Not True to Size like the 65L

      I purchased 2 weeks ago the 65L explorer 4000 it wasnt true to size and had to return it, now neither is this 85L version true to size

      Not True to Size, Teton states "34" x 22" x 16" , I am not sure how they get these measurements

      yes it may be 34" long but its not 22 inches wide nor 16 inches deep

      mine with brain lid is 36: Long 18" wide to outside of external pockets and 12" deep from back of frame to outside pack material

      is this a quality control issue? I feel robbed let alone cheated

      I can not fit my compressed -10* mummy bag in the sleeping bag compartment, it measures 12:X16" so this must be designed for the ultralight hiker and really small gear???

      my 30* mummy fits but thats it, which is really sad

      the top hood aka brain needs to be redesigned, it hangs too far forward

      I purchased this to carry all my hammock gear in the back of my jeep, not to hike with and I feel it just barely works for that

      its a good pack if you can live with these issues, not sure I can

      it does have some cool features given its price point which is the most frugal 85L pack on the market I know of

      Hi there. Thank you for your review of the Explorer 85L. I'm sorry that the one you received wasn't true to size! We measure our packs while they are fully packed out. Measurements can be tricky because there are so many ways to measure this pack. We understand there are sometimes inconsistencies, though the difference shouldn't be too far off what the specifications tab shows. The sleeping bag compartment for the 85L is 18" x 11" x 11". Most mummy-style bags should fit in it, but there are some that may not. I'm sorry if the dimensions are not adding up as expected, though I did confirm with our product team that the volume will always remain the same even if the dimensions happen to be off. If you'd like to chat with a customer experience representative to ask more about it or start a return, please contact us at info@tetonsports.com.

      Very happy

      I have yet to go camping with it yet but I’ve stuffed everything in and there is still enough room to add additional items. The pockets are still free to use to. Quality is great and this is definitely the best backpack you can get for the money

      Great pack/Great Value!

      85L pack is very comfortable. It is able to hold a lot of weight. Teton defiantly put a lot of thought into making a pack that could hold a lot of weight and also be comfortable. The back of the pack has an internal frame which is a significant bonus PLUS it is adjustable. Lots of space and pockets for different items. Also for the price this is unbeatable. Coupled that with a lifetime warranty and this is the best value on the market. I have the tan one!

      Comfortable, adjustable, and so many exterior pockets!

      Our nonprofit just took 6 teenagers backpacking for a week during spring break. 3 of the teens used the Explorer 85L backpack and 3 had 85L bags from a more expensive company. By far, the Teton Explorer bags outperformed the more expensive bags. The Explorer is well ventilated, has numerous exterior pockets for quick access and organization, and is comfortable and adjustable for both male and female users. We will definitely be purchasing more Explorer bags for future trips!

      Best ever

      This pack is the best. I've never hiked more than a couple of miles but I had to hike 15 miles with this pack. My back and shoulders were absolutely fine. I had no issues with this pack. Love the separate compartment for sleeping bag. Price is absolutely great too.

      Pockets!!!

      I thought pockets on packs had gone extinct. Thank you Teton Sports for continuing to make a backpack with external pockets for keeping me organized and keeping my important gear easily at hand instead of having to dig into the middle of the pack to find my raincoat/toilet paper/map/battery/flashlight/camera/water filter/etc./etc.! ALL of the major outdoor gear makers are moving towards packs that have 1 big compartment and that's it. Or maybe they have one token pocket in the lid. Like they think we are all ultralighters and will pass up a product because they added 4 oz. to it for pockets and zippers.. What's crazy is even many of these minimalist packs are heavier than the Explorer 85L *cough*cough Aether 85L *cough. So, you give up convenience AND still get a heavier pack all for 3 times the cost of the Explorer 85L

      I am replacing an Osprey Atmos 65 AG that was comfortable but often too small for all the gear/food/clothes I wanted to bring with me on a trip. Because I wanted an array of pockets, this Teton Sports pack was about the only one left on the market that met my needs at any price. It is fantastic that it is relatively inexpensive too. The 85L size of the Explorer is great so far. I've taken 2 trips with it and just finished packing for a 3rd and haven't filled it to capacity yet. It is nice to know I have space left if I need it, like for more food on a longer trip or bulkier clothes for a Winter trip.

      The quality of the Explorer appears to be good…
