Get your camping supplies, scout supplies and more from Teton Sports ~ Review on Mom Loves 2 Read

 TETON Sports
Teton Sports is a great website that supplies many of the most common needs for campers, hikers, scouts and more.  My son Josh has become a Boy Scout (previously a Cub Scout) this past spring and was excited to finally go to Boy Scout Camp last month.  The only problem we had was figuring out how he was going to carry all of his stuff for an entire week by himself for nearly a mile over three LARGE hills.  We were fortunate to get a second-hand external frame backpack as his main pack and use a regular school backpack as his second one.

Many of his friends had nice Internal frame backpacks to use.  I thought that by next year I would make sure he had one of the internal frame ones as the External frame seemed very heavy and cumbersome for him.  Though it did have a lot of room for his supplies and clothes!

When TetonSports.com offered me a chance to review for them, I chose an Internal Frame Backpack as my review product.  Unfortunately it was too late for camp, but still worth trying out!

teton Scout The Scout3400 Internal Frame Backpack is a full 55L and only weighs 4.5 pounds (that is at least 3 pounds less than his other pack).  It is hunter green - perfect scout color - and very durable.  It has numerous pouches, pockets, zippers and places to tie or strap on more gear!  We can't wait to take it camping!  It has so many compartments for stuff that I don't think we could ever fill them all!  And, best of all, it comes with a handy rain cover!  That would have come in handy on the first day of camp when most of the scouts' gear got soaked by a random rainstorm just as they unloaded all the packs!

This amazing backpack comes with some great features:

  • Multi–position torso adjustment fits wide range of torso sizes (it can fit myself, my son, and my husband)
  • Hydration Capacity (not included) - (it has a small pocket where you can put in a hydration pouch)
  • Thick mesh lumbar pad for comfort and airflow against your back (my son loves this!)
  • Side and front compression straps to secure sleeping bag, pad, or tent (perfect for taking extra stuff!)
  • Front and top bungee stash storage for jackets, shoes, or rope
  • The back and hip padding made of durable open–cell foam with lumbar pad and molded channels provides maximum comfort and allows airflow (much more comfortable than external frame packs!)
  • Integrated bright yellow water–resistant rainfly

  • Josh and I both absolutely love this backpack.  My husband even checked it out (inside and out) and says it is a much better one that his and is better made!  It also has more pockets, and even though it is a bit "smaller" it has more clips and straps to add gear to than the one my husband uses.

    So for your camping, scouting, hiking or outdoor and travel needs, check out Teton Sports first!  With a wide range of gear available they are a great place for more than just backpacks! Now he wants one from Teton as well!Josh has his eye on a camp pad from Teton Sports for next year's Scout Camp adventures!
