The 8 Best Cheap Hiking Backpacks Under $80 [2019]

Spread the love

Do you know what’s better than a good quality hiking pack?

It’s a good quality hiking pack that’s cheap! I think we can shake hands and cheerfully agree on that. Today, cheap is a dirty word when it comes to product quality. But let’s not forget that cheap is a synonym for affordable.

I know how hard it could be to find a decent backpack when you’re on a budget. The good news is no matter what you hear, it’s possible. Such packs do exist. It just takes more time and effort to unravel those hidden gems.

It took us a tremendous amount of time and effort to research and find the best cheap hiking backpacks that fit our criteria for both quality and price.

But I’m glad we did it. I am because we managed to create a comprehensive list that will help many outdoor enthusiasts who want to buy an affordable yet quality pack. We hope that it will help YOU too.

During the process, we looked for many features and characteristics, the main four of them being:

  • Durability
  • Comfort
  • Functionality
  • QPR (Quality-Price-Ratio)

We also did our best to expose not only the pros but also the cons of each backpack in our list. And I’m not only talking about the advantages and the flaws WE noticed, but the feedback reported by others who have used the backpacks.

We looked at customer ratings and reviews so you don’t have to. We asked our friends and also hikers that we don’t know on social media about their experience about a given backpack. They all contributed to this list.

We also added an informational and (I hope) useful buying guide. It will help you narrow down your choice and you’ll learn what to look for when buying a low-priced hiking pack.

When it comes to the price, probably you’ll agree that it’s a relative notion. In general, we tried to include packs that are below $80. Also, don’t forget that the price may vary depending on the volume, the fabrics, the features, and the brand.

#1 Neekfox 35 L

neekfox 35 l backpack

Click image to see it on Amazon.

Honestly, it would be difficult to find a cheaper backpack with the quality and the size of Neekfox. Compact and lightweight, yet spacious and well-organized, this surprisingly well-made pack will easily accommodate a weekend hiking trip. You just won’t believe how many pockets it has. You can even store your laptop in the main compartment and there will be enough space for some snacks or clothes. In addition, Neekfox can protect your essentials from the rain for a while because it’s water repellent! Read our full Neekfox review.

A good thing about this buddy is that it’s foldable. The lack of internal frame definitely has its advantages – you can neatly fold the pack in its front pocket so it becomes a tiny bag that you can bring with you when you don’t need its full capacity.

What We Like

  • Super lightweight – weighting the ridiculous 0.91 lbs or 0.41 kg when unfilled, you can imagine how easier it would be to hike with a reduced load on your back. 
  • Multiple pockets and great internal organization – besides the roomy compartment and the double side mesh pockets for water bottles, there are also two zippered pockets on the front and a handful of internal containers. There you can conveniently store books, clothes, food, and you can also put your smartphone or notebook in a separate zippered compartment on the inside.
  • Impressive capacity - we were surprised to see that Neekfox can hold up to 45 lbs (20 kg) of load. That’s impressive given its weight and size. That allows for a heavy packing whenever you need it, be it for picnic or camping.
  • Ergonomic shoulder straps – S-shaped, ventilated, and softly padded, the straps will allow you to carry the heavy load without discomfort.
  • Durable fabrics with double-layer on the stress points – the pack is made out of solid rip stop nylon that repels water and it is solidified by a double layer on major stress points. That enhances stability and increases the life of the backpack.

What We Don't Like

  • Zippers easily get caught / Need to be careful with them.
  • Only chest strap / no hip belt

#2 Nevo Rinho Advance 45 L + 5 L

Highly versatile and packed with tons of useful features, it’s safe to say that Nevo Rhino can rival the big brands. It has everything you’d want for a 1-3 day outdoor trip at a remarkable quality. It’s great for everyday use too. The pack is hydration ready, has a sleeping bag compartment, a sewn in rain cover, great amount of pockets, including on the hip belt, and the ventilation system on the back really surprised us.

What impresses about Nevo Rhino is the quality of craftsmanship. The pack is study and well sewn – all the buckles, seams, and straps are stable and extremely well-made. The fabrics are strong too – the shell is made out of 600D ripstop nylon and 600D Oxford Canvas .We found the backpack lightweight for its volume of 45 L – only 2.6 lbs or 1.20 kg.

What We Like

  • Fantastic Compartment Organization – Nevo Rhino is packed with a CRAZY number of pockets and storage areas which allows you to have more room when it comes to the items you might take. The size of the sleeping bag compartment on the bottom is big enough to take two pair of shoes if you don’t need the sleeping bag. 
  • Great ventilation and suspension system that is comparable to those of the big shiny brands such as Osprey. The pack allows you to easily customize the fit by adjusting the length of the waist, shoulder, and the chest strap with a simple pull. There’s a thick padding on all straps to protect your body from the force of the load. Speaking of load, it distributes evenly across your shoulders, back, and hips for maximum comfort and increased endurance. The heat and the sweat vanish quickly thanks to the breathability of the materials on stress points because the air can circulate freely. Ain’t that awesome?
  • Good external storage capacity – you can effortlessly attach a tent, trekking poles, a sleeping mat, cooking kit, and pretty much everything you like on the exterior of the pack thanks to the presence of buckles, elastic cords, and straps. No matter if it’s for camping or extended hiking trips, you’ll be good to go.
  • Elastic side pockets that are not only good for water bottles but for bigger objects too thanks to their large size.
  • Waterproof lightweight material that is rigid enough to withstand prolonged use in harsh conditions.

What We Don't Like

  • External side pockets are difficult to reach on the go
  • Hip belt pockets are shallow and don’t fit bigger smartphones

#3 Teton Sports Scout 3400 (55 L)

Teton sports scout 3400 backpack

It’s not a surprise that this 55 L backpack suitable for 2-4 - day hikes continues to be a top seller and aggregates thousands of 5-star reviews. Besides being super comfortable to adjust and wear, it also has a sleeping bag compartment, and an integrated rain cover to protect your gear from rain. Read our full review of Teton Sports Scout 55 L and you’ll see why we love it so much.

This pack is perfect not only for hiking but for camping and travelling too. It fits the carry-on requirements of most of the airlines and the materials (600D Ripstop) are solid enough to last years of rugged use. Its weight is 4.5 lbs or 2 kg, which we find a bit much.

What We Like

  • Adjustable torso length to fit the most common sizes that’s easy to customize for a better fit and maximum comfort when walking. 
  • Side and front compression straps to stabilize the load and compress the pack when needed.
  • Excellent amount of internal and external storage compartments and good pocketing system. It has everything needed for strategic packing including side and lower gear loops for attaching gear externally (such as walking poles or a sleeping pad, for instance).
  • Hydration ready – for your convenience, there’s a pouch in which you can fit a water bladder with a volume of up to 3 L.
  • Good quality of the padding on the shoulder straps as well as on the back panel and on the chest and hip belt. That definitely adds to the overall comfort during prolonged trips because it prevents rubbing and reduces fatigue.

What We Don't Like

  • A bit heavy for its size

#4 Roam 25 L

roam 25 l pack

Click image to see it on Amazon.

Here’s a really well-thought out day pack that you better be sure not to miss. Roam is a multipurpose foldable backpack that will hold your gear comfortably and reliably no matter if it’s for a day hike, cycling around the city or going to the gym. It doesn’t have all those glossy features, but you can bet it has everything needed to serve you well. It’s ridiculously lightweight and allows for an easy organization and smooth wearing.

The great thing about foldable packs is that they’re super convenient for traveling and portability. You can use the pack as a small bag and stow compact items in it when you don’t need to stuff it right away.

When zipped up into itself, Roam is only 8” x 8” or 20 cm x 20 cm. Don’t be mistaken, though – its full capacity will comfortably accommodate a 1-2 day hike. When unfolded, this tiny beast is 18.6” x 11” or 47 cm x 28 cm.

What We Like

  • Exceptionally lightweight – Roam is only 284 grams, which is hard to beat for a 25 L backpack. The comfort of wearing a featherweight pack on your back is unparalleled. 
  • Easy to pack and organize – the backpack has 6 pockets. That includes two side water bottle pouches, a small front pocket where you can put small objects such as a wallet or glasses, and an inner sleeve in the main compartment when you can store a laptop or a water bladder. The pack even has compression straps that allow you to tighten up the backpack to enhance portability and to even attach some gear externally. 
  • Extended comfort for extensive hikes thanks to the high quality of the padding on the shoulder straps and the breathability of the material. For Roam, that works great, and it really reduces strain on the back and shoulders when walking.
  • Strong zippers – let’s face it – zippers are a major problem of the cheap brands. It sucks when the zippers are difficult to pull out and easily get caught. Roam doesn’t have that problem and all the zippers work smoothly as expected.
  • Lifetime warranty and fantastic customer service – you’re eligible to receive a full refund or a free replacement of your bag in case you encounter any fabric defects or issues. The customer service is with proven impeccable feedback.

What We Don't Like

  • No chest or waist strap

#5 Gonex 45 L + 5 L

gonex 45 l backpack

Click image to see it on Amazon.

Gonex is yet another affordable brand that produces practical and highly performing backpacks. This superb model impresses with a combination of functional features, tons of well-organized space, and comfortable design. Besides, the pack is durable, made out of hard-wearing nylon and it’s also breathable and thick padded on stress points to alleviate tension. With Gonex you get more than you pay for. Check it out.

Gonex is similar in features to many other packs but what makes it stand out is the unbeatable price and the fact that the quality is surprisingly good for a cheap brand. The pack weighs only 2.9 lbs or 1.3 kg. On a side note, you might be interested in reading our review of another successful Gonex model – the attractive and priceworthy Gonex 35 L.

What We Like

  • Adjustable shoulder straps allowing you to center the load of the pack and adjust it closely to your body for a better fit. You can do this with the pack on your back. 
  • Adjustable hip belt with padded lumbar support – you can tighten up the backpack by pulling the straps on the belt to snugly embrace your body and relieve the load from your shoulders. On the belt, there are two good-sized pockets on both sides where you can store energy bars, a small torch or smartphone. 
  • Eva breathable mesh on the back panel that goes one step further in providing maximum comfort through soft, breathable foam that keeps the heat away and reduces strain. Read more about foam padding here.
  • Plenty of options for strategic packing – this pack has an impressive number of different-sized pockets and compartments which is helpful when you want to pack for camping or 2-3 day hikes. That includes pockets on the waist belt, a hydration sleeve, Molle braided belt on the front to hang carabiners, and dual rings with elastic cords on both sides for walking poles attachment.
  • Rain cover included – easy to pull out and deploy, it ‘hides’ in a bottom pocket to make sure your essentials are well protected when weather goes bad.

What We Don't Like

  • Only one (top) access to the main compartment.
  • Waist belt pockets difficult to reach on the go.

#6 Mountaintop Traveling 40 L

Click image to see it on Amazon.

One of the top rated hiking packs on our list, Mountaintop offers stylish design, great functionality, and a price that’s unbelievable. It has plenty of space that comprises multiple pockets (the smallest of them hidden), and straps for external gear attachment. Oh, and the rain fly is included in a bottom zippered pocket. Be sure to check out this pack.

With a volume of 40 L and excellent storage space, Mountaintop is best used for 1-3 day outdoor trips. The size of the backpack makes it fit as a carry-on and the weight is reasonable too – only 2.05 lbs or 0.90 kg.

What We Like

  • Rigid and tear resistant – Mountaintop has reinforced stitching on stress points that make the pack reliable when carrying heavy loads for prolonged outdoor trips. The strong and well-sewn coat fabric can hold up to a slight rainfall. 
  • Two main access points – you can access your stuff not only from the large top compartment but also from a zippered compartment on the bottom. Imagine you have to get your sweater which is stowed on the bottom of the pack. No need to unpack all your other gear to get to it. Cool! 
  • Basic yet efficient padding – there’s a breathable foam on the back panel as well as on the shoulder straps that provides decent cushioning and sweat-free trekking.
  • Adjustable sternum strap – you can easily regulate the length and the width of the chest belt to achieve perfect fit for enhanced stability of the load and shift the weight to the hips.
  • Well thought out internal and external organization – you can use the volume of 40 L by neatly arranging your items in multiple pockets on the inside and the outside of the pack. There’s a big internal pocket in the main compartment where you can put a hydration bladder or a laptop. The hidden small pouch on the front allows you to store small valuable items. As for storing gear externally, there are D-rings on the shoulder straps to hang stuff and 6 adjustable straps thanks to which you can attach bulky items such as a tent, trekking poles or a sleeping bag.

What We Don't Like

  • Lack of padding on the waist belt.
  • Side meshed pockets too shallow.

#7 OutdoorMaster 50 L

Click image to see it on Amazon.

An absolute bestseller, OutdoorMaster is a spacious beast with whom you’re sure to have a great time in the big outdoors. At first look, the pack seems modest in capacity but don’t let it fool you. It enlarges to a point that Peter Dinklage from “Game Of Thrones” could fit in. Seriously, this backpack is multipurpose, tough, and packed with a good amount of insanely useful features. See for yourself.

OutdoorMaster comes in 10 different colors to choose from and with a rain fly thanks to which you can sing “Let It Rain” and don’t care about harsh weather conditions. The weight of the pack is 2.4 lbs or 1.08 if you like kilograms.

What We Like

  • Well-designed ventilation system – normally you shouldn’t expect miracles from a rather unknown brand. That’s why the quality of breathability and cushioning here comes as a surprise. The ergonomically shaped shoulder straps are well-padded and there’s wadding on the hip belt too. Less sweating and more comfort. Yay! 
  • Padded laptop compartment – no matter where you go, sometimes you just need your electronic device. OutdoorMaster has an internal protected sleeve that could easily fit a 15.6” laptop. 
  • Good-sized hip belt pockets – those are big enough to fit a smartphone or a small snack.
  • A front pouch with a small zippered pocket – allows you to put wet clothes, a jacket or anything that you think it’s better to be outside of the main compartment.
  • High-quality zippers – those are with big plastic handles, which makes them easy to pull. Besides, they slide smoothly and never get stuck. The double zippers on the front pocket allows you to lock your backpack.

What We Don't Like

  • Front pouch is not stretchable.
  • Back support not so strong and there’s a risk of bending. Pro tip: put accessories close to the back to prevent bending and enhance stability.

  • Large main compartment with an internal elastic pocket – great for storing a laptop or water reservoir.
  • Bottom shoe compartment – you can fit sneakers or running shoes in there. It might be small for hiking boots, though. You can also use it for placing a sleeping bag there.

Buying Advice And General Guidelines

Choosing a low-budgeted hiking backpack doesn’t differ much from choosing a regular pack. With that being said, there are some differences to consider.

We will quickly go through some important rules that you need to follow to make sure you’re making the right choice for you.

Firstly, you have to determine the size and the volume of your future pack. Of course, this depends on the type and duration of the trips that you usually go to. For the size, ask yourself whether you’ll take it as carry-on and for the volume – what quantity and kind of gear you need.

Watch the useful video below to have a better understanding of different backpack sizes. There's a nice comparison too.

An ideal solution would be to have a pack with adjustable torso length and belts (chest and waist). In that way, you will be sure to achieve a fit based on your own body measurements. A pack with an adjustable torso length on our list is #3 Teton Sports Scout 3400.

If you’re mostly a day hiker, a good size would be anything between 15 – 35 L. For weekend trips a good volume is 30 – 40 L and for extended trips in the outdoors (3-6 days) you’ll need at least 50 – 60 L and sometimes even more.

In case you’re wondering too much about the volume, don’t overthink it and pick a pack with a bigger volume. It’s easier to shrink it (hint: compression straps) than to expand it. Plus, you’ll be relaxed that you’ll be able to take items you haven’t thought of in the last moment.

It’s even better if the backpack has a detachable structure so that you can reduce its size and weight in case you don’t need its full capacity. Such a pack on our list is #8 DavidNile Adventure 40 L.

Secondly, carefully choose based on features that provide comfort. Avoid packs with no padding on stress points (shoulder straps, back panel, and ideally on the waist strap).

This is important to ease physical tension, reduce tiredness, and prevent rubbing and strain, especially when you hike extensively with heavier loads.

The same matters when it comes to the ventilation system. When you hike in hot days with a backpack that doesn’t allow the air to circulate freely, you’ll be soon torturing yourself. Always aim to pick a pack that’s well ventilated on the back panel in order not to retain the heat and the nasty sweat.

For more tips and information, feel free to check our detailed guide on what to look for when deciding on a hiking backpack that best fits your needs.

Now let’s concentrate on what’s different when going for a dirt-cheap hiking rucksack.

Buying A Cheap Hiking Pack – Things To Consider

Let’s get one thing straight right ahead – when you’re purchasing a low-priced backpack from a lesser-known brand you’re making a trade-off.

hiking on a hill

You give less money, but in most of the cases you have to be prepared to make a compromise with the quality you receive. You just can’t expect that the ventilation system of a Chinese backpack for $40 will cool your back as efficiently as an Osprey backpack for $160.

Don’t worry, though. There are exceptions. There are backpacks that offer a surprising level of quality for their price, and they will serve you well for years if you take a proper care of them. All the packs on our list above fall into this category.

In the following sentences, I will first show you what to look for when buying a low-cost pack for hiking. Then I’ll quickly go through some best practices when it comes to maintenance and care.

What To Pay Attention To When Picking A Cheap Pack?

Like every car model has its Achilles heel (Volvo S60 has a small cargo space, for example), even the most expensive backpacks have their weak points. That’s why we include some cons worth considering in every product review that we write.

Finding a worthy yet inexpensive pack from a cheap brand comes down to two major criteria:

  • It should meet your needs in terms of size, volume, number of pockets, and all that practical stuff already mentioned earlier.
  • It should have as less weak points as possible.

How many weak points you’re OK with, that’s only you to decide. Probably the kind of trip or adventure you’re typically going to doesn’t always require many pockets, so that’s not a disadvantage for you. Or maybe you just don’t care if the backpack has compression straps or a hip belt.

However, keep in mind that cheap packs generally have the following weak points. When choosing, pay attention to those and examine them thoroughly:


1.

Zippers quality – this is regarded as a major problem of cheap brands. No one wants to deal with zippers that either get stuck or break easily. Inform yourself well about the quality of the zippers by skimming customer reviews, reading the product description of the backpack or asking questions online. It’s best if the zippers have big handlers and are manufactured by the two major companies YKK or SBS.

2.

Poor fabrics – a material that’s too thin isn’t good, no matter how lightweight it is. That means it might tear easily only after several uses of the pack. A good specification for fabric resilience is the denier. It measures the thickness of the individual threads used to create the material. Most of the backpacks are made out of nylon and polyester. Most of the product specifications mention the value of the denier. The higher the denier, the higher the durability. A decent hiking backpack has to have fabrics with a denier anywhere between 100D – 600D.

3.

Low-quality stitching – the craftsmanship of cheap backpacks sometimes tends to be poor. Look for that as well. Some packs like, for instance, #6 Mountaintop Traveler 40 L have reinforced stitching on major stress points to enhance load supportability.

4.

Limited or no warranty at all – a good brand no matter if it’s cheap or expensive would stand behind its products and clients by providing clearly stated warranty and reliable customer service.

Now let’s mention some quick tips in regards to backpack maintenance.

Taking A Good Care Of Your Pack

hiking with walking poles

In general, cheap packs are more fragile and easy to break. Therefore, they require more care and attention. The following easy tips will increase the life of your hiking pack:

1.

Avoid throwing it harshly, especially on dirty, rough surfaces – that could break the buckles and tear the material.

2.

Clean it regularly and wash it carefully – concentrated dirt wears out the material with time. Make sure to remove dust and dirt from the interior and the exterior after every harsh use. Wash it manually and never in a washing machine. Use detergent-free soap and a wet cloth, ideally a microfiber towel. Avoid brushes with hard bristles as they can damage the fabrics. Check out this guide on how to clean your backpack the right way.

3.

Don’t overstuff it – every pack has its limits in terms of load bearing. Exceeding its capacity would make it not only uncomfortable to wear but the backpack will come to the end of its life much faster.

4.

Be careful with the zippers – it’s true that zippers are easy to break sometimes. But it’s also true that often, we don’t treat them with respect and that increases the chance of damage. Don’t use strength when zipping and unzipping the pockets and avoid doing it too fast. Every time, make sure that nothing stands on the way of the metal teeth when moving the sliders. To do the extra mile, lubricate the zippers. Check this detailed guide on how to properly take care of backpack zippers.

Conclusion

There you have it, folks. Time to end this long article.

Finding an affordable and at the same time reliable hiking backpack is not easy and definitely not impossible.

You just have to know how to look and what to pay attention to when choosing among the many sleazy brands on the market.

Cheap packs are often unjustly regarded as ‘disposable’ backpacks, but I strongly believe that you can discover some treasures out there. I hope the 8 treasures on our list will narrow down your choice significantly.

See you on the trail. Have fun with your new backpack!
