Here are just a few things to consider and think about. o Consider where you`re going what your activities will consist of and how long you plan to stay in order to determine what gear you might need. o Will you be Camping Fishing Hiking Backpacking or maybe you just want to set up camp and chill for the weekend. You can even plan a combination.
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.
Choosing a backpack for use on short hikes and walks is not difficult. Basically you want something that can easily carry the few items you will be taking on your hike along with some kind of water. These days there are backpacks that have built in water bladders or a pouch to add a water bladder. This is a nice idea but keep in mind that water is quite heavy. So if you are not sharing your water with another person you probably do not really need a full 2 liters of water for a one day hike.
The Kelty Blanca 2000 Hydration Fastpack is a really nice choice if you decide to go with one of these. For the cost-conscious Stansport sells the Slick Rock Hydration Back Pack. Frame Packs If you are hiking out into the woods and then camping there over night you will need a larger backpack. This is where frame packs come in. The word frame refers to the fact that there is something inside or on the outside of the pack that helps the pack maintain its shape. There are two types: internal frame and external. Size and Weight You can also get backpacks for smaller people such as the Coyote 4750 Trail Internal Backpack. This pack is hydration-compatible which means that you can add a water bladder whereas the Tornado has it built in. Also there are backpacks made to be very light such as the hydration-compatible Kelty`s Illusion 3500 Ultralight Backpack which is just 3 lbs 7 oz. Brands I have mostly mentioned Kelty backpacks because they are among the best but there are many other brands worth looking at.
