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.
As for general miscellaneous equipment a compass some light rope a can bottle opener a signal mirror and a first aid kit are very important. Extra batteries are a great idea as well if you have devices that require them. Just be mindful about the added weight. Finally clothing will need to be considered. If you are changing elevations the weather can change quickly as well. What started out in the 70 and 80`s can quickly turn into the 40`s and below especially as the sunsets. Don`t get caught without the proper sweaters or blankets. Likewise in the heat of the day having a good hat and sunscreen can prevent you from getting too much sun or even dehydrated. I also strongly recommend a good pair of sunglasses. Yea you guessed it; I forgot those too. Now that you are armed with these basic hiking and camping tips my hope is that you don`t make the same mistakes that I have made. If you plan appropriately and are well-equipped your experience should be safe and enjoyable. So no more excuses get out there and take on the great outdoors and have a blast doing it.
