Because you need a sturdy, roomy backpack for an entry-level or intermediate hiker for your next long trip into the backcountry and you’re looking for the best value. You need the TETON Sports Fox 5200 Backpack. The Fox 5200 is a 5200 cubic inch/85-liter backpack that is always a top selling backpack here on Amazon because this super versatile backpack has plenty of room for a 2-to-5-day adventure and it’s so comfortable; with fully adjustable fit in the torso and waist belt and a durable open-cell foam lumbar pad and molded channels that provide maximum comfort and airflow. The pack includes upper load adjustment straps at the shoulders and thick padded shoulder straps to comfortably carry heavy loads for longer. Made with a 600D diamond ripstop and 1000D Oxford canvas shell that will stand up to years of rugged adventuring—it’s TETON Sports quality. Also includes large sleeping bag compartment, deep butterfly expansion pockets on sides, daisy-chain webbing, and gear ties to hang shovel, ski poles, or other gear. If you need to strap on even more gear, there are multi-directional compression straps, and multiple compartments and pockets arranged for strategic packing.
The Teton Fox 75+10L internal frame backpack is a great fit for the serious hiker. Comfort-wise, the Fox is outfitted with dual aluminum stays that adjust to the shape of your back, along with contoured shoulder, lumbar, and hip pads. In addition, the height of the shoulder straps is adjustable, helping the pack accommodate a wide range of torso lengths. The upshot is a comfortable, ergonomic pack that won't put undue stress on your back and shoulders even after a full day of hiking.
On the interior, the 5,187-cubic-inch pack holds all your gear in its top-loading main compartment, expandable front section, and unique sleeping bag compartment. Meanwhile, hikers looking for an easy place to access their first-aid kits and mini flashlights will delight in the pair of hideaway side pockets. The design concludes with an attached rain fly that keeps your gear dry and is compatible with separately sold hydration systems.

Finding the Right Backpack
For extended trips into the backcountry, there's no getting around the fact that you'll have to carry life-sustaining supplies on your back. Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for a backpack:
Internal vs. External
Up until late 1970's, external frame packs--which consist of an exposed, lightweight metal frame attached to a fabric pack-bag--were the only thing going. In recent years, though, packs that place the support structure of the pack inside the pack, known as internal frame packs, have boomed in popularity.
The good news about internal frame packs is that they hold the weight of your load close to your body, making it easier to maintain your balance on uneven terrain. Meanwhile, internals provide stiffness and support, but they are not completely rigid, which makes them more flexible when you're doing active sports. With the added flexibility comes a high degree of compressibility, meaning you can use the pack's compression straps to cinch down your load and keep items from shifting and throwing you off balance. Internals also sport slimmer shapes that allow for more arm movement in all directions--another big plus for off-trail bushwhackers, skiers and climbers. Last but not least, internal frame packs offer a greater range of adjustability in the shoulder harness and hip-belt than external frame packs.
There are some negatives for internals. First, once packed, it can be difficult to grab needed items out of them quickly. And because internal frame packs consolidate the load into a single, body-hugging unit, proper packing is very important. To distribute the weight properly, you should pack your heaviest items close to your back and in the middle portion of the pack-bag. Plan on getting a sweaty back with an internal, too, given the fact that they are pressed right against you. Finally, internal frame packs are priced higher than external models.
External frame packs are very good at focusing the weight of a load directly to the right place: your load-loving hips. While internals, when properly packed, do this effectively, too, you can always rest assured that an external will distribute the load evenly, no matter how unevenly packed it may be. Externals also offer easy access to your gear via multiple, easily-accessible compartments. Plus, because externals don't situate the load directly against your back, you'll enjoy far more air flow. Finally, if you're on a budget, or you're buying for a growing child, externals are more affordable.
If you plan on hiking on easy to moderate trails and you don't need a lot of body movement, you'll probably be fine with an external. But because externals are so rigid and inflexible, challenging trails or any kind of off-trail pursuit can become painful and frustrating. Also know that your balance is far more compromised with an external frame pack during activities like stream crossings and hops through talus fields.
Packs for Shorter Trips
In addition to backpacks designed for overnight trips, rucksacks are great for day-trips, warm-weather one-nighters, single-day ski trips, or fast alpine assaults. Some rucksacks blur the line between backpack and rucksack with integrated internal supports and sophisticated hip belts and shoulder harnesses. Choose a pack in this category based on your intended use. Short day hikers don't need an internal frame, while climbers and skiers with heavier loads likely do.
Sizes and Capacities
Packs in the 3,000 cubic inches and lower category are good for day hikes or overnighters in warm weather with minimal gear. Packs in the 3,000 to 4,000 cubic inch range are good for one- or two-night trips in colder weather. If you're going to be out for up to three days, look for a pack in the sub-4,000 cubic inch range. Choose a pack with 5,000-6,000 cubic inches for week-long outings. And finally, for trips lasting a week or more, you'll need something in the 6,000-plus cubic inch category. Keep in mind, though, that bigger packs weigh more, and since every ounce counts, you'll want to choose a pack that offers just enough space for your outings and no more.

Overall, the pack fits well. My husband is very short and this was able to drop to a smaller size and fit him comfortably.
It is slightly heavier than many packs, but it works well on shorter hikes (7-10 miles a day for 2 or 3 days). It has held up well until this week, and the seams are starting to let go. Which is disapointing since he hasn't over used it...
I would buy it again, but only if I was using it for travel and not hiking...
You can see the pack on the left side of the photo, hanging under the box.
Regardless, this bag has tons of features that I have fallen in love with. It has a separate compartment to fit your sleeping bag (which can be opened up to make more space), several straps on the outside to lash a bed roll, rope or any other number of things to it. Love this bag!

I do realize I am missing a few things other hikers/campers would pack but it is because my friend is bringing the portable stove top and fire starter as well as a few other things such as bear spray and paracord. However, I believe I would not have a problem packing any of this with what I currently have in the bag.
Upon coming back from this week-long adventure, I will provide an update as to how the pack performed for a week long trip. Overall, I am really happy with my purchase and at $70, I dare you to try to find another bag that can hang with this one!
I felt obligated to give a further review of this pack after I had taken it on a 7 day hiking/backpacking trip. I came to this conclusion: I still feel the same about the pack as I did before! It's GREAT! Had no problems with anything during my trip and it was even more comfortable than I had expected. My friend bought an Alice Pack for this trip which ended up costing him just a little less than what this retails for. The first day on the trail he had a malfunction with the chest strap and ended up breaking it because he couldn't get it to come undone. I had no problems with the pack and it did great on the trip. If your looking for a comfortable pack with lots of space, this is it. Go compare prices and you won't find one that will beat it! Happy shopper here! 5 STARS!
