Well, it's not only the US defense troops that can benefit from using solar powered backpacks. People, and not just followers of green living, are finding it increasingly convenient to use them. Solar backpacks are made to serve the same function as a regular backpack, with the additional convenience of being a source of power for portable electronic appliances. The backpack is equipped with a solar panel which harnesses the natural resource of sunlight, and converts it into reusable energy. In the high tech gizmo world today, staying connected ALL the time is the one thing most people cannot do without, and a solar powered backpack offers you a way out.
The first thing you should look at is where you are going to use the backpack for. Outdoor backpacks come in so many specialized designs, there are hiking backpacks,fishing backpacks,backpacks for water sports and so on. These different backpacks all have their own functionality but you may not need all of those extras. If for example you need an outdoor backpack for a day trip, you don't need one that can carry a tent or a sleeping bag and also probably don't need a lot of storage space so a smaller day pack would be fine. When on the other hand you need a backpack to go on a weekend hiking trip, you Will need the space to carry all the necessary items along. If your outdoor activities bring you close to water like kayaking or rafting, it's wise to look at a more waterproof outdoor backpack. So determine the usage of the backpack as well as the environment you are going to use it in.
It is very important that you buy a backpack that fits you well. There is nothing more frustrating then being on an outdoor trip and having back pain or a sore shoulder because your backpack isn't the right size or adjusted to your body. So it's better to look for an outdoor backpack that has adjustable straps that you can adjust to your length and body measurements. Look for the backpacks that have a waist band. The waist band will take the weight of your back and let you carry it on your hips. Make sure you adjust the waist band tightly around your hips and after that adjust your shoulder straps. Again, a correctly adjusted outdoor backpack can save you a lot of back pain.
Not only do you want a backpack that will be comfortable and well-suited for your hiking needs, you will need a backpack that is durable and will stand up against the wear and tear that multiple hiking trips will require of it. The fact is, you truly do get what you pay for and that includes short-changing yourself when buying the right backpack for the occasion. Be sure to test the zippers, buckles, snaps and other closures, as well as the seams and straps. Once you are out on the trail, you don't want a backpack that is going to fail you.
If my three hours was any indication, buying a good backpack is not an easy task. With hundreds of backpack manufacturers and styles, it can understandably be overwhelming. Whatever you do, don't go cheap. You'll be doing yourself a disservice and end up buying a new one anyways. A good backpack is an investment. You needn't spend $500 on a backpack, but be wary of cheap, no-frills, run of the mill $70 brands, as you'll regret the design flaws and absence of extras. Spend a little more for a good backpack from a trusted brand, and it will be your companion for many trips to come. The Osprey pack I eventually settled on has traveled with me from the U.S to the Middle East for 10 awesome years and I know it has another good 10 years to go.
Their backpacks have become a necessity for carrying books, homework, report cards and teacher/parent correspondence to and from school. They certainly are the preferred method when you compare them to any other Bags. When our parents were in school and they just carried their books and papers in their arms.
