As with shopping for anything, the variety of backpack brands and backpack types available on the market today can be overwhelming for someone choosing their first backpack. When choosing your backpack it is important not to let terms such as internal frame and external frame backpacks bog you down. Start by asking yourself one simple question, what will I be using my backpack for? Hiking If your primary use for your new backpack is hiking, you are going to want a hiking backpack that is light weight and not too big for the amount of load you plan on carrying. In other words if you plan on taking a one to day trek you will not need a pack that can hold a week’s worth of gear. A daypack is smaller and lighter than its bulkier hiking backpack counterparts but offers similar features such as multi-use compartments. You might also want to consider a backpack that either has a hydration system or is hydration system compatible. Camping If you plan on using your new backpack for camping adventures you are going to want a larger load backpack with extendable top lid and adjustable compression system to allow for larger or smaller loads. A backpack that has detachable daypacks or fanny packs is a necessity if you plan on taking small hikes while leaving your camp behind. If it’s possible that you may be carrying oddly shaped or sized gear you may want to consider an external frame hiking backpack that allows you to attach your gear to the outside of your pack. Backpacking Overseas If you are planning your first backpacking through Europe adventure you are going to want a backpack that is capable of carrying 20 to 30 pounds of gear comfortably. If you don’t want to check your backpack in as luggage on the plane, make sure the backpack is small enough to fit in the overhead bins once it is fully packed. Just remember, when choosing your backpack it is important to shop around for the backpack that is right for you and your needs. Make sure you find a backpack that is not only comfortable but durable since you never know where your adventures might take you.
