  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been a great backpack, tough and endurable, I use it as a daily backpack and as a field backpack, with the perfect size also for taking it on a plane with your essentials.

As a biologist I like to put my gear through the wringer and this definitely has proved to be one of the best backpacks.

May i ask what's the volume of this exact pack you're wearing? Looks like it contains more than 35L.

Does this pack have built in hydration...

Does this pack have built in hydration compatability?
Or just pockets for water bottles?

How large is the top pocket? I want to buy...

How large is the top pocket? I want to buy this backpack but need to be able to fit a DSLR camera in the top compartment. Does the zipper go at least halfway around the compartment? Any info appreciated.

I seriously doubt it's going to fit. We have a couple of Terra 55s, and we're lucky if we can get our rain gear and a couple small, loose items into that pocket and the small zippered stash pocket under it. Also, there isn't any padding, so your camera is going to be very vulnerable to damage. If you have the room inside the main compartment, that's the best place for it, or another option would to get a padded camera case designed for it and to lash it on using the external straps. But, as far as the zipper goes: Yes, I would say that it does go about half way around the lid. Hope this helps.

I have the terra 45 and I would like to get the 35 to have for shorter trips and for my girlfriend to use when were out, I know TNF makes women's versions of their other terra packs but I haven't been able to find one so is this one universal?

Best Answer Responded on

Hi Alex,

Honestly, I'm not sure if you'll really realize enough of a size difference to make downsizing only 10L for yourself worth it. For your girlfriend, this pack will universally fit both genders, but the shoulder straps (and sometimes the hip belt) on the women's specific packs are going to be much more comfortable for her in the chest and shoulders. There are so many great packs for women, from different manufacturers, that I would suggest you maybe expand your search for something specifically for her. Osprey comes to mind as having some of the widest variety of model choices.

What a wonderful backpack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just bought this bag recently, and I was just amazed just by its appearance and functionality. I would use this as an everyday pack as I got a lot of books and a laptop to carry around. Would recommend this if you're planning to take a carry-on on an airplane - it would definitely fit in the overhead. Really like the design of the straps and the back support system.

My go to crag bag!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This holds all of my climbing gear perfectly for a day of serious cragging.

Water, chalk, rope, slings, climbing shoes, draws, lockers, etc...

Its a durable, light weight, and comfy!

Terra Backpacks

I am the owner of a hiking guide service in Moab Utah and I have been using NF's Terra 30 for several years. I find it the most versitle and comfortable pack I have ever used. The only weakness of the pack is the netting that holds water bottles tends to tear where the strap connects to it and the material generally weakens over time. Terra 30 discontinued this year but I am looking forward to getting a Terra 35 so I can have a nice loud rape whistle built right in...

Great backpack

Who would have thought this awesome backpack even comes with a sweet rapewhistle built into the strap!

What pack would work better for backcountry...

What pack would work better for backcountry skiing this one or the off chute 26?

Responded on

i'd say this one, has more space for mountain liqour, and straps in the back to carry skii and skii gear.

Is it possible to compress the bag a little...

Is it possible to compress the bag a little to meet airline carry-on restrictions of 22x14x9?

Responded on

You can definitely compress this in length..How much is up to you, it just depends on what you aren't going to pack..or how compressible your stuff is.

Responded on

Provided you dont stuff it to max or over capacity it will fly as a carry on just fine. Most 35L packs are no problem as carry ons provided they arent over stuffed.

Responded on

I currently have the terra 40 and have had no problem as a carry on.

Responded on

I've used this as my carry-on for the last year without any problems in Europe, Central Asia and North America.

In a review it shows this pack with a rain cover in one of the side pockets. Does this pack come with a rain cover?

Responded on

No, but you can get an aftermarket one rather cheaply.

Responded on

I bought mine in Germany - it came with a rain cover stuffed in one of the side pockets and it is compatible with a hydration system.

Responded on

I bought mine in UK few years ago and it came with a rain cover.

Responded on

I received the bag today but it didn't come with a rain cover. Disappointing but it's still a nice bag.

Was the pack not fully filled, or was it compressed, or both?
Most pictures of the Terra35 are much larger than the pack in the picture. My pack seem larger than in the piciture even when not fully filled.
