Made especially with the hiker or camper in mind, the Teton Sports Oasis 1100 hydration backpack is built sturdily as it’s large. It’s made with high quality synthetic material, supplemented by a shell lining made of high-grade 210D Honeycomb rip stop nylon material, so you know that the pack itself is resistant to all kinds of abuse, wear and tear.
The straps are fully breathable, with high-density EVA foam complementing a mesh covering with ventilation holes. They are also comfort-lined around the edges, so there’s little chance of chafing.
The best feature of this pack is its roomy storage compartments. It has six compartments, all of them very useful if you’re looking to make the most of your pack by having it hold your valuables, including a separate pocket to hold the water bladder to keep its integrity. The main pocket is inside-lined with a weather guard which will guarantee that it will keep everything in it dry and free from outside particles. There are two smaller pockets, one of them with a built-in organizer so you can keep everything neatly inside.
The other is meant as a space for your stash. Each side has an easily accessible mesh pocket deep enough for snacks, your wallet or even your phone. There’s also a rain guard built into the pack so you can use it even when it’s raining.
The water bladder itself is made of sturdy yet non-toxic material that passes all FDA requirements. It can hold up to 2.0L of fluid, which is great for those small hiking or camping trips. The material is puncture resistant, so there’s little to no chance of leaks or spillages within the bladder. It can easily be detached to be cleaned. The drinking tube mechanism is easy to use and is spill-proof.
There’s also a nifty chest shock absorber, meaning that you can get bumpy during your activities and the pack won’t be bothersome. It also comes in different colors for those who are whimsical. Most importantly though, it’s highly affordable for such a sturdy pack with a lot of storage. You will probably get the most out of your money by purchasing this pack.
The only real disadvantage to this pack is that it’s not recommended for people who would prefer a smaller pack, such as this product’s brother, the Trailrunner 2.0 Hydration Backpack, which is more compact and better for running.
Children and kids might also find the pack a bit bigger than they’d like, and there’s it may not properly support their frame. The bulk is the only real cause of concern, if you hate having such a large pack.
As with most hydration packs, there have been some reports of defective parts, most commonly the zipper for this pack. It’s worth noting, however, that each pack comes with a limited lifetime warranty, so you should be fine if the parts are defective.
The only really bad thing about this product is that it’s on the larger side when it comes to size. If you’re a person who likes a bigger pack, though, then this is great for you. It’s perfect for all your camping and hiking needs, plus the value alone is well worth it. The 2.0L capacity water bladder is more than enough to keep you hydrated in a real activity.
Overall, this is one of the best and economically available hydration packs out there. Well worth the buy considering all pros versus the cons.
