If you are new to the backpacking scene you may be asking yourself, what is the difference between an external frame backpack and an internal frame backpack? A sturdy frame structure is necessary to support any large sized backpack; here are some of the key features of both the external frame pack and the internal frame pack. External Frame Backpacks External frame backpacks are just that, backpacks where the frame is on the outside of the pack. External frames were the original frame design used for hiking backpacks. Here are some of the key features of the external frame backpack. - The frame is typically made from aluminum or another lightweight metal alloy. -The frame is reinforced with a system of straps and netting to prevent the metal frame from coming into contact with the hiker’s back. This also allows for air to circulate between the hiker’s back and the backpack, making it a “cooler” design than the internal frame backpack design. -The exposed frame allows for larger/additional items to be attached to the pack. -In most cases, the pack itself can be removed allowing the hiker to reconfigure their load or carry non conventional items. -The external frame backpack is designed to carry larger loads for a longer period of time. -It is designed to be loaded easily and allows for even unbalanced loads to be carried without sacrificing too much comfort. Internal Frame Backpacks Internal frame backpacks are a newer backpack design. Its frame is completely integrated inside of the pack. Here are some of the key features of an internal frame backpack. - An internal frame backpack has a large fabric covering over the internal frame. -The frame is composed of aluminum, titanium or plastic. -A series of complex straps hold the internal frame in place. -The internal frame backpack design allows for the backpack to fit closer to the hiker’s back which minimizes the shifting of the load but does not allow for ventilation between the user and the pack. -This pack is ideal for adventurers looking to do activities where balance is important and that require independent arm movement, such activities including rock climbing, skiing or hiking through rough or rugged trails. -The internal frame construction allows for larger storage compartments but since the frame is completely internal it is hard to attach large or heavy items to the outside of the pack.
