Which Backpack should I buy for a long distance hike.


Recommended Posts

Should I buy the Berghaus Trailhead 65L Rucksack (3.8 lbs) or the Teton Sports Hiker 3700, 60L (4 lbs). I know neither is ultra light, but I don't want a bag so light it falls apart and I don't want to pay $ 300. for a pack.

Ready to order today, would appreciate any opinions.

Thank You

Tough call.  That is so subjective. Since they are both on Amazon with free delivery and returns, I would get both.  Pack them full of your normal load and see how they feel. Send back the one you like least.   There is nothing like trying it loaded up.  Always reveals something you might not like the feel of compared to the other.
