3400 Junction

Starting at $379.00

Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 150 reviews
Our preferred pack for backpacking in any environment, built for varied environments.
OUR MOST VERSATILE, LONG TRAIL PACK

The versatile 3400 Junction allows you to keep your options open when it comes to packing for a big weekend, multi-day section hikes, thru hikes, or to meet the gear demands of changing seasons and environments. Ideal when resupply points are less frequent and/or for equipment flexibility is needed. When the extra volume is not in use, the 3400’s top can roll down enough to make the overall size of the pack similar to the 2400, but that additional space can come in pretty handy when you need it.


For hikes measured more by changes in climate zones and geographical features than distance, the Junction offers the ultimate versatility required to meet those demands.

Pretty happy, would love a few changes

First off, I loved the look, simplicity and weight of this brand of packs. It was expensive so I did a lot of research before settling on this one. I took it out on the Timberline Trail around Mount Hood this past week and will give feedback on how it performed there.

Pros: easy to fit all my gear and food for 4 days on the trail. I used HMG stuff sacks and pods so organization was on point. Side Pockets fit two water bottles, my tent stakes and a lightweight chair. Mesh pocket held toiletry kit, Chacos for water crossings and my rain gear. Phone fit well in the hip pocket with chapstick and first aid kit on one side and day snacks in the other.

My pack was 27 pounds and it carried that amount well. I got black even though I really wanted white but I knew the white pack would show so much dirt on the bottom and it would drive me nuts;)

Cons: I’m petite (5’1 and 112#) and the straps really dug into my traps and shoulders. It became painful over the course of the trip almost to an annoying level. A little more padding there would be nice but I realize that would add to the weight. Maybe this is normal or doesn’t impact those with broader shoulders or more body fat there.

I wish the white pack had a black bottom because then it wouldn’t get so dirty looking when it’s on the ground at camp. I understand dirt is part of the deal but a girl can dream! If it had this feature I’d have bought it in white for sure since it’s lighter and brighter! It’s the only reason I went…

Good, bad, and ugly

I’ve had it out on a long trail for about 10 days now; here are my initial thoughts. I love the weight of the pack and the roll top design, which allows for adjustment due to changing food volume after reapplies. It carries 30 lbs very nicely. I also love the mesh pocket for stashing a damp shirt, etc and helping dry such items more quickly. The mesh pocket also works well for snacks, etc and provides convenient attachment points for things like a towel, a trowel, or a solar panel. Another great feature is the hip belt pockets-roomy and appropriately sized and positioned. It’s a high quality product. As for the”bad”, I added a shoulder strap pouch which was really essential for my use. Some sort of small pouch or compartment integral to the pack would be an improvement. As for the “ugly”, I’ve found just one, but it’s a significant one. Because of the waterproof dyneema fabric which rests directly against the wearer’s back, sweat accumulates, soaking my tshirt and shorts over the course of a day or a hot climb. Some sort of interface there would be a huge improvement.

3400 Junction Review

Hey Guys (that means you too, Sarah):

Amazing pack. Fits everything in compact style and makes a great place to rest your head when the Trail is just a little longer than you were thinking. Easy on the shoulders; long enough to make full use of your spine. Very tough material; black is perfect so you don't look like a neon sign when Night Hiking. 3 days on the Appalachian Trail in White Mountains - nothing hurts - I'm Estatic. Best Pack Ever!

Love it

I already have 2 good backpacks. I've taken them for more than 1000 miles of the PCT. I bought this bag for the subtle differences. I took it out for a 30 miles section in the San Jacinto area and I'm happy with it. The mesh is great, the fabric feels durable and waterproof. The hip pockets are actually big enough for items! Even a cell phone, altho I got the shoulder pouch which is the best.
