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.
Let`s dive into some of the specifics on what we covered above: If you plan on camping through your hike- Get a good quality tent. Be sure to consider the size and quality. You will want a good rainfly. Don`t make the mistake I made once and get a tent based on how it looked cool. You want function over fashion any day. You also will want a small tarp to place under the tent to help keep the tent floor dry. You can also use this as a rain cover should you get caught in a storm during your hike. A roll of duct tape and some seam sealer are always good to have should your tent form some leaks or a seam split. I learned that the hard way. For sleeping at night a good sleeping bag and a roll to lay it on is great idea. Be sure to decide on what best fits your needs. Each bag is rated for various temperature conditions. The pad is to roll out under the under the sleeping bag to not only provide some comfort but to create another moisture barrier. If you bag gets wet it almost impossible to dry it out during your hike.
