Just before my wife stopped working at Sports Authority, she bought me The North Face Terra 40 for a great price. My friend owns the Terra 30, and gave us a heads up that some times he wishes he had a little bit more space in the pack, which is why we got the Terra 40.
- Pack size
- Potential durability
What a great pack for a great price. Even the regular retail price is an awesome deal for this versatile pack. We decided to get the burl orange color, and I'm glad I did. While the green, the blue, and the black packs also look good, there was just something about the orange that makes this pack look awesome.
This pack is small and light enough for quick jaunts up the mountain to hold the essentials, yet big enough for a 1 or 2 night adventure. There are multiple pockets to keep things organized, including a sleeping bag compartment at the bottom, plus it has a sleeve for a water resevoir.
The mesh pockets on the sides are a little high on the pack for my normal comfort, but I am still able to pull out my water bottle without too much effort, plus each side easily holds a 32oz Nalgene bottle.
The straps are adjustable enough to fit a wide range of body types/sizes and is very comfortable.
I've only had the chance to use this pack a few times on single day excursions, but each time I use it, I try to think of other opportunities to put it on and use it. I look forward to trying it out on my next 2 night backpacking trip.
I haven't seen any wear or tear on it at all, so it is durable (and it means I need to use it even more...).
