Field and Stream is a company that’s synonymous with the outdoors. Not only has the magazine been a wellspring of useful tips and information for outdoorsmen throughout the years, but with television shows, a great website, and an impressive lineup of outdoor products available at Dick’s Sporting Goods, you have access to quality gear from a legendary brand. Hikers and campers will find some great backpacks with the Field and Stream logo, and I’ve highlighted a few of them for you today.
The Field & Stream 65-L internal frame pack ($119.99) is a great solution for gear transportation and storage the next time you hit the trail for a long trip. Aside from a light, yet sturdy, internal frame, the pack offers a built-in rain cover, a hydration compatible reservoir pocket, sliding suspension system, expandable side pockets, a sleeping bag compartment with a draw-cord divider, loops for ice axes, and mesh side pockets for water bottles. Furthermore, the nearly 4,000-cubic inch pack is available in four different colors.
For shorter trips, you may want to invest in Field and Stream’s 35-L pack ($69.99). The 35-L, while smaller, is ideal for day trips and minimalist weekend trips alike, and even offers several of the same features as the 65-L pack, including a hydration reservoir, mesh water bottle pockets, stash pocket in the hood, and a top loading design. It also offers padded back panels, as well as a padded hipbelt and shoulder straps, an adjustable sternum strap, and a front pocket for easy storage.
Finally, for traditionalists, Field and Stream offers a 40-L external frame backpack ($99.99). The pack is outfitted with a lightweight aluminum frame, and also offers fully adjustable shoulder straps, frame length, back pad, sternum strap and hip belt, which allow personalized comfort during your hike. This pack also features a front panel pocket, four external pockets, two hipbelt accessory pockets, and an internal divider.
Field and Stream’s backpacks come in a variety of shapes and sizes to appeal to all levels of experience and trips, so you should have no trouble finding one that suits your needs. Furthermore, with the Field and Stream logo stamped on each one, you know you’re getting a product from a legendary company dedicated to keeping outdoorsmen safe and informed when they hit the trail If you’re in the market for a new backpack this season, I’d give Field and Stream’s lineup a good look, available at your local Dick’s Sporting Goods, or www.dickssportinggoods.com.
