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.
If you want to camp you have to take some additional items with you. You have to take cooking food like vegetables or meat cooking equipment sleeping bag and camping light along with you. You can store all these in your hiking bag -maps guides and compasses help you during hiking and camping journey. You can store all these equipments in your hiking bag to enjoy more and have more fun.
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.
Rucksacks The principle feature of this type of pack is that it closes with a drawstring at the top. Otherwise it is just like any other small backpack. There are many fashionable rucksacks for everyday use but not so many these days designed for hiking and backpacking. So let us move on. Day Packs This refers to just about any backpack that is too small to use for over-night backpacking. Kids these days often use them to carry their school books in moms use them as diaper bags and I know quite a few software engineers who use them instead of briefcase. They are really quite versatile.
