The backpack has been around for thousands of years, however it was only in 1910 when the word \"backpack\" was coined. Backpacks have gone through years and years of modifications and design changes - starting from some of the first backpacks we know of (animal hide and intestines held together by thread) to the modern-day backpack as we know it today. When searching for the best backpacks for college, it is important to remember that you need to look at both the composition of the backpack as well as the overall design. This article will discuss some of the different styles of backpacks and explore some of the most popular backpacks.
Internal frame backpacks have the frame work inside the backpack which lays flat against your back when walking. This type of hiking backpack is ideal as it hugs your body and feels very safe and secure when you are walking. External frame ones are more rigid and although can carry heavier loads they are not as comfortable to carry. They are ideal for longer camping trips as you can fit more into them and over time the weight in them will become distributed making it easier for you.
You will also want to get a backpack that is large enough to contain the essential gear related to the length of trip you are planning to take. Learning how to pack a backpack can go a long way in helping you choose just the right backpack for the occasion. Not only will you be ahead of the curve by approaching backpacking from this angle, you will be less likely to find yourself out on the trail with a backpack that is either too heavy or loaded with unnecessary equipment.
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.
The third type of backpack is also rather common, and frequent travelers especially are going to be used to seeing it - the backpacks for travelers. Tourists and travelers travelling to other places for a period of time are frequently seen carrying this type of backpack around. They are built much bigger than your ordinary average backpack because they are meant to fit a lot more items in them, hence they are used for travelling. They also come with thicker straps so they can be easily carried around, and they are able to hold a heavier load because of the material they are made of.
Frameless backpacks allow the wearer to carry a decent load without having to lug around a huge backpack. They are often constructed with many different pockets, and some are even designed to be waterproof. If you're looking for backpacks for college, definitely consider going frameless.
