Shopping For A Backpacking Backpack

If you want to take a backpacking trip, there are a number of things you will need before you will be able to make this trip happen, but the most important thing of all for this trip will be a good backpack; of course, if you are a veteran backpacker, you will know exactly what you are looking for as you shop for this backpack, but if you are just getting into backpacking (or are perhaps buying a backpack just in case!), there are a few things you will need to know as you browse your options.

The weight of a backpack will be one of the biggest things that will cause a boost in the price, and while it may seem like a few pounds will not make a big difference, these few pounds will actually slow you down quite a bit over a lengthy trip; if you are going to be buying a backpack for simple overnight trips, there will be no need for you to buy anything too expensive, but if you are going to be taking a long trip – or if you think you may want a backpack that will last you for years and years – it will be well worth the investment you make to buy a slightly more expensive (and less heavy) pack.

No matter how much you are spending on your pack, another thing you should definitely do is make sure it is waterproof; more than likely, a less expensive pack will not be waterproof itself, but will instead have a rain fly that comes with it, but regardless of the way in which the pack is waterproof, read through the user reviews on various websites to make sure that the pack truly is waterproof, as the last thing you will want when you are backpacking is clothes that are soaked.

And the size of the packs will, of course, vary greatly across your spectrum of choices, and while it might seem like you may as well go with the largest size, realize that a bigger pack will be clunkier if you are not filling it all the way. Know what kind of backpacking trips you picture yourself taking, and this will enable you to make the right decision when it comes to the size bag you need.
