Backpacking can take quite a lot of preparation, part of which includes finding the right backpack. The backpack needs to be large enough to carry in everything that you’ll need on your trip, but remain light and comfortable enough that you’ll actually be able to carry it.
Backpacking backpacks differ from regular backpacks in that they’re equipped with an internal frame for support. Often these frames are adjustable to make sure that Most of them have a strap to secure around the waist like a seatbelt for proper weight distribution.
It’s best when they’re water resistant since you never know what’s going to happen out in the wild. Always try on a backpack before you head out onto the trail if possible to make sure that you’re comfortable with the fit.
