This Hiking Backpack Is So Cheap That We’re Buying One

AmazonBasics’ hiking backpack is so cheap right now that we can’t help but wonder how good it actually is.


Your paranoid, conspiracy-loving friends may be exaggerating when they say that Amazon is taking over the world, but the company is making a concerted effort to annex every category of product, including outdoor gear. AmazonBasics Internal Frame Hiking Backpack with Rainfly has a sleeping-bag compartment, plenty of pockets to keep everything organized, plus an extension collar if you need up to five more liters of space. Keep your neck and shoulders free of redness and chafing with adjustable and padded shoulder straps. The bag comes in a 75-, 65- or 55-liter capacities. Amazon priced the packs at a dollar per liter, but right now they’re all on sale for up to 48-percent off, making them the cheapest backpacking backpacks we’ve ever seen.

It’s so cheap in fact, that we’ve decided to purchase one ourselves to find out how it stacks up to the high-end packs we’re used to carrying into the wilderness (we’ll share our findings when we come to a conclusion). So no, we can’t vouch for this backpack’s quality, but many of the AmazonBasics products that we’ve tested so far have outperformed their price tags, and if all you’re looking for is something basic, this might be it.
