Personally I have an external frame Jansport pack and I have a friend that owns a pack made by Stansport. I have not had any problems with the Jansport pack although I have read about some models that had shoulder strap problems. Stansport is a cheaper brand but the quality of their products seems good. There are many other manufacturers including Coleman. Too many to mention by name here. Conclusions Some people avoid camping and outdoor activities due to the expense of purchasing such gear. Fortunately there are a wide range of choices in different price ranges. In any case a good backpack will last many seasons and so if you buy the right one it is a nice investment in your own health. Backpacking and hiking are a great way to get into shape and enjoy God`s country.
o Make it a rule pack up any medications and all first aid supplies that you may need. Prescription medications pain relief and vitamins are essentials. Those with allergies should bring along an epi-pen or allergy relief medication. Camping and hiking gear are a must for all hikers and outdoor adventure lovers. Providing safety and comfort and making our adventures possible they are mandatory for hikers.
Even if you`re on a tight budget a camping trip a day hike a family picnic by the lake or just a visit to your local park does not have to be expensive. Some facilities are free where others might charge a nominal fee that`s normally used to keep the facility more enjoyable. Some facilities are for use only during the daylight hours while others offer everything from day use overnight camping fishing hiking trails nature walks and etc.
Next on the `what to bring list` should be a good backpack. Based on the number of days you intend on hiking will largely determine the size and scope of the pack you will need. If you are camping along your hiking route then you will need a larger pack that can accommodate not only your clothes but also you tent and sleeping bag food and cooking stove/utensils and water and other necessities. If you are this during the colder months you will need to plan for additional winter gear and garments. If it is the rainy season then proper raingear would be a must. Avoid The Same Hiking Mistakes I Made.
