Rucksacks The principle feature of this type of pack is that it closes with a drawstring at the top. Otherwise it is just like any other small backpack. There are many fashionable rucksacks for everyday use but not so many these days designed for hiking and backpacking. So let us move on. Day Packs This refers to just about any backpack that is too small to use for over-night backpacking. Kids these days often use them to carry their school books in moms use them as diaper bags and I know quite a few software engineers who use them instead of briefcase. They are really quite versatile.
When you`re done with your camping gear donate it - and some of your time - to a local scout troop. Your local youth scouting groups are always on the lookout for a helping hand from outdoor enthusiasts. You will feel great satisfaction knowing that your trusty old gear will help benefit others.
Internal frame backpacks are the more popular variety. Users often say they are more comfortable than the external frame packs because they conform to the body. This can be a problem though in hot weather. External frame packs tend to allow more air between the user and the pack which can be cooler. The Kelty Tornado 4900 Hydration Backcountry is an internal frame pack that has a breathable back panel thereby attempting to provide the best of both worlds. This is a very nice pack with a 3 liter hydration system.
For cooking food you will need a small camp stove and something to ignite a fire. Generally you want to refrain from starting an open fire as it can be prohibited in many national and state forests. Be sure you have a cooking pot skillet utensils plates and a good knife. Of course some zip-lock bags are great for not only storing food but also rain proofing important items. For the food itself planning out each meal is key. Bringing items like cereal powdered milk granola for breakfast and heat and eat freeze dried meals for lunch and dinners. Remember that weight is an important consideration so bringing a lot of canned foods may tend to weigh you down. Of course you will need plenty of water and a refillable container that you can use along the way. Don`t forget the water purification tablets either again learned that the hard way as well.
