Other Notables Backpacks for Beginners

Mardingtop 45L Hiking Backpack with Rain Cover

The 45L Mardingtop Hiking Backpack is slightly lower in price than the Teton 2100 Sports Canyon Backpack.

It has a reflective band that not only improves nighttime visibility but also acts as a fastening for the hydration tube. The adjustable EXPA-compression straps reduce the pack’s profile.

The zippered bottom allows you access to the main compartment. This backpack is water-resistant. It comes with a water sleeve, durable buckles, SBS zippers, and a 3-month limited warranty.

The Mardingtop backpack can be used to store a tent, a hammock, a small sleeping bag, and other accessories. There is an extendable collar on the top that enhances the main compartment’s capacity by 5L.

As per customer reviews, the 45L Mardingtop Hiking Backpack comes without side pockets in the hip belt.

There is no space to place the hydration tube, and the construction material of the backpack is not durable enough to withstand much use. Its weight distribution system is very inadequate, which makes it not an ideal choice for long trips.

Deuter Aircontact Lite 60+10 SL Hiking Backpack

On another edge of the spectrum is the pricey Deuter Aircontact Lite 60 + 10 SL Backpack.

It has the Deuter Aircontact set-up, a zippered pocket on the hip belt, another one in the pack for storing valuables, and a lid pocket. It is compatible with hydration systems.

When compared to the Teton 2100 Sports Canyon Backpack, the Deuter Aircontact Lite SL Backpack can’t fit into an airplane’s overhead bin because of its large size.

Also, you will have to buy a separate rain cover for it.

The Deuter Aircontact Lite SL is not a unisex backpack as it is built to fit a women’s build, and the product’s description indicates as such.

  1. Hi Sonia,

    I am planning to go camping with my friends soon and am looking for a new backpack to carry along with me on our daily hikes. This Teton Sports Canyon Backpack seems like it could be a great one. However, my last one busted and I didn’t have it for long.

    I’m just curious to know what you would say is the most notable feature that makes this backpack different from other brands that claim to be the best?

    Thanks,

    Hunter

    • Hi Hunter,

      I would say the Teton Sports Canyon 2100 Backpack is the amongst the most versatile backpack on the market since it can be used for a wide array of outdoor activities. So it’s most notable feature is its versatility.

      And its second best feature is its sturdiness which comes from the use of high-quality material and its irreproachable construction. The Teton Sports 2100 backpack can handle harsh outdoor conditions with ease.

      Hope that it helps. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line if you have more questions.

      Thanks,

      Sonia

  2. Hi Sonia,

    I’m so glad I found your website! I have been looking into backpacking for sometime now for the coming summer days. I used to go hiking with my dad when I was little and after his passing, I wanted to bring back memories of him by doing the very thing that we loved at the time. Great timing on the post!
