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.
Next important point can be to purchase adjustable backpacks. Nowadays market is full of good quality adjustable backpacks. No doubt, adjustable back systems are great, but will cost you a bit extra than your bulk standard pack. Actually, adjustable backpacks will allow you to set the height and weight of the pack in the perfect position on your back. Either you can set it yourself or ask your friend or salesperson to adjust and fit your pack on your back by sliding it up and down until you are comfortable. So, when you feel it is right, you lock it off.
Be sure you choose your backpack with padding in the back area and a pack with two wide padded shoulder straps. The padding across the back makes it much more comfortable as well as protecting your kid from sharp book edges or other pointed items stored in the backpack. The wide padded shoulder straps provide more comfort than a thinner straps, and these straps are not as likely to rip away as quickly as the thinner ones under the weight of the backpack.
Once you've decided on the type you want, you should take some time to explore the different styles. As a college student, you may want a one strap backpack (for carrying your laptop), or you may want to go the traditional route and stick with the two strap backpack. Either way, make sure the backpack you pick is functional. For example, you're not going to pick a one strap backpack if you hardly ever bring your laptop to school and you need extra space for books.
Another thing to consider is something many tend to overlook: comfort! There is no shame in being as comfortable as you can when backpacking. In fact, comfort can increase the level of enjoyment when hiking the great outdoors. Before purchasing your backpack, make sure to try on several different styles. Don't limit yourself to a particular backpack simply on the basis of what others say. Keep in mind: you will most likely be wearing your backpack for long periods of time. This being the case, it is vital that you choose just the right backpack that will be the most comfortable and still designed to carry all the gear you will need for the trip.
First, it is important to note that backpacks can be grouped into four different categories - frameless (your typical backpack for college), external frame (hiking, camping), internal frame (hiking, skiing, sports), and the body pack (overnight camping, long trips). As I mentioned, the frameless style is your best bet for the college lifestyle. These backpacks are usually constructed using synthetic materials and are much cheaper than the other three types.
