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.
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.
