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.
Get comfortable using all of your safety and survival equipment and practice using it the correct way. It is not the time to start learning how to navigate with a compass and map after you are already lost. It`s not the time to learn how to start a fire with a 6 year old flare you`ve been carrying forever in your pack. It`s not time to learn about safe rafting and best survival practices after you`re in danger. Put aside some time to learn about all the features of your camping gear before you head out to your favorite campground. You might be surprised to learn how incredible your GPS really is once you understand how to use the backtrack feature. You will also be mighty thankful when you learn the proper weight distribution for your backpack. Take time to learn about your camping gear - practice around your home before you venture into the great outdoors.
