If you need to bring a lot with you on your next camping trip, we recommend the Escape4300 from TETON Sports. The pack has a lifetime guarantee and includes many features normally found only on more expensive packs. Though carrying a heavy load is never easy, this pack has thick padding on back, shoulders and waist to make the job easier. Tension adjustments on shoulders, chest, waist and torso allow you to get a precise fit, and the aluminum stays easily bend to the shape of your back, providing extra support right where you need it. Side butterfly expansion pockets are perfect for shoes or wet gear, and bottles will stay put in the mesh pockets because of the side compression straps. Like all TETON packs, the Escape4300 is hydration-ready with hydration ports and bungee attachments for drinking tube. The hood raises 12 so you can stash a rope, sleeping pad or tent, and you can use the external compression straps, hood eyelets, D-ring and daisy chain to strap gear to the outside of your pack. The Escape4300 even has zippered hood pockets for valuables.
