Teton Sports Talus 2700 Review
By: Bill Szabo
Recently I received the Teton Sports Talus 2700 pack to try out. When I pulled it out of the box I was not disappointed at all. It is packed full of features and the little details that they pay attention too and wonderful. Now I do have to admit that backpacks are a weakness of mine and am also very picky about the functions on them. Teton Sports has listened to what we want and delivered. Some examples are the little elastic loops on all the straps so that they aren’t flopping around everywhere. On either side are large elastic/mesh pouches for a Nalgene bottle and the dual daisy chain is great for attaching gear too especially climbing gear.
The main compartment can be accessed by the zipper that goes all the way from one side to the other so that you can get to everywhere inside without having to dig through your stuff. I recently took this with me to the field for 3 days and it held all my uniforms and change of clothes. My boots even fit in there as well. Teton Sports even supplies a poncho that can double as a shelter in the front top pocket. Between the daisy chain is a map pocket that I believe is waterproof if not resistant. Fully loaded the Talus 2700 rode fine on my 5’7” frame with the shoulder straps well- padded and the hip belt is double wishbone in design and is very comfortable. The pack can be adjusted to snug close to the body for climbing mountains and scrambling on crags. As always Teton Sports did not disappoint with this pack. I would give it 4 ½ out of 5 stars.
