If you or someone you know is considering taking up backpacking, getting the right gear is of utmost importance. From making a backpacking checklist to buying proper backpacking camping gear, it is vital to 'know before you go' when it comes to backpacking. Because your backpacking equipment is the means by which you will be transporting all of your gear, supplies, food and clothing, it is essential you establish a tried and true backpacking 'packing' list.
Because of their versatility, back packs, sometimes called knapsacks, are popular with students. Kids' backpacks give them more space when carrying books, binders, notebooks, lunch, gym clothes, and other essential school things. Plus, many backpacks offer extra pockets that are perfect for pens, cellphones, and other gear. Trendy backpacks are available in different designs and colors, often featuring the latest celebrities or television characters, giving kids a chance to express their individuality through a hip backpack.
Back to school shopping or preparing for a hiking trip can be costly. Save money by buying discount backpacks. With wholesale backpacks, you'll find high quality, affordable backpacks at deep discounts. Check out online deals on backpacks to find the greatest variety of hiking packs and school bags.
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.
There are a variety of laptop backpacks available in the market. Most laptop backpacks have padded compartments, along with organizer and accessory pockets to store other valuable things needed in work or in school. Before purchasing a bag, it is important to measure the 3-way dimensions of your laptop in its closed position, and compare it to the available laptop compartment dimensions of the backpack you are eying to buy. Other considerations in purchasing a bag include the functionality of the bag, the durability, the personality of the owner and the comfort in carrying the bag.
Backpacks also come with a lot of different compartments. If you go on a longer hiking trip you may want to have a compartment for a handheld gps, or for your cell phone that is easily accessible. If you carry your tent and sleeping bag along you may want to look at easy storage compartments that are accessible through zippers on top and bottom of your backpack. This comes in handy when you need an item that is stored on the bottom of your backpack so you don't need to empty the whole backpack to get to it, but simply open the bottom zippers. When you are hiking in a more challenging dry, hot environment you may want to look for an outdoor backpack that has a hydration pack included. This is a build in water tank that enables you to drink out of a attached water tube without using your hands or holding a water bottle. Also a good backpack for mountain biking or other sports activities.
