Teton Sports Scout 3400 Backpack - Review

Today Luke is reviewing the TETON Sports Scout 3400 Internal Frame Backpack.  This is a budget friendly pack that doesn't cut any corners.

Pros :

Well built.     Inexpensive.      Lots of great features.     Adjustable      Good warranty.      Nicely padded.        Includes a rain cover

Cons :

Heavy.  That is my biggest complaint with this pack.  Since it is more a budget pack, the weight goes up.

Review :

I’ve had this pack for 6 years and it continues to perform very, very well for me and I paid $55 for it.

Was it worth $55?  Absolutely!  Is it worth a $100?  I believe so.  This is a terrific pack for those who are on a limited budget or those who are testing the waters when it comes to backpacking.

With a 30lbs loadout I find this pack very comfortable.  As you drop down in weight it becomes even more so.

My brother bought one of these 3 years ago and it has served him well too.  No issues to report.

For this price, this is an amazing backpack and 5 years later, I continue to use it.

  1. Luke, while I'm a big fan of this pack, I feel you've misrepresented the sleeping bag compartment. I bought this bag for my son and his Boy Scouting adventures. He's 12 years old and uses a youth size eureka mummy bag, which is relatively small as far as bags go. I could not shove that bag in the compartment with the main section divider closed. I can not imagine an adult sized sleeping bag would come even close. It was more effective for me to strap his bag to the underside of the pack.
