- JNJason N.Verified ReviewerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 starsMar 19, 2023Best 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.
- AAA1PRVerified BuyerI do not recommend this productRated 2 out of 5 starsMar 4, 202385L 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 ofTETON SportsMar 8, 2023
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

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
- CAChris A.Verified ReviewerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 starsFeb 4, 2023Great 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!

Very well made and not heavy. Lots of space to store items for hiking or camping. Outside pockets are so convenient for first aid kits, fishing gear and much more. ~ love it

This is a well made backpack with internal framing.. It is perfect for our daughters treck through Europe on a mission's trip to reach the unreachable. It fits all of her gear including a sleeping bag. We are very please with the Explorer 85L Backpack. The shipping was fast and it arrived in perfect condition. The price was better than a lot of other places too.

I was skeptical about diving into the Teton family. I have to say that I am very happy and impressed with this pack. Super jazzed to see how it holds up over time.
- FMFrank M.Verified ReviewerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 starsJan 7, 2023Great scout leader pack
I’m always well prepared at our troop outings and this pack is nearly large enough to pack the kitchen sink. The pack design allows for flexibility in where the gear stores. The hydration bladder holder is nice but does not come with a bladder. The separate area for sleeping bag adds convenience so you’re not unloading all your gear for your sleep system.
