Depending on the size of your load, you'll need to choose a pack with sufficient support. The main categories of backpacks are back packs with internal frames, backpacks with external frames, and frameless backpacks. Frameless packs are meant for lighter loads. This kind of backpack is simply a bag with straps that fit over the shoulders. More sophisticated frameless backpacks may have padded shoulder straps and backs for extra comfort and additional pockets to help organize your supplies.
According to him, your correct frame size can be found by measuring your torso from the seventh vertebra down the spine to the point in the small of your back which is horizontally level with the top of your hip bones. To find this point, use your fingers to trace the hip bone upwards till you feel the point where the top edge of your hip bones curve inwards, on the side of the hip, creating something of a shelf. This measurement is the torso length, especially useful to consider those packs with non-adjustable back system. In fact this system that is used throughout the outdoor industry today to measure the exact body size and to determine the correct frame's size.
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.
Functionality of the laptop backpack is best assessed by asking a question, what kind of laptop backpack do I need? Do I need a bag with just a padded compartment for my laptop or a bag that consists of a padded compartment for a laptop together with other features such an organizer with storage space for media devices, mp3 player pouch and a zip way mesh water bottle holder? Laptop backpack bags available in the market address this kind of need. In browsing the web I came across this particular bag which I think is very smart, sleek and most of all functional especially to those people on the go. The Fulton bag by Mc Klein fits laptops that are 15\" in size. The bag has a top-Loading Access with detachable computer sleeve that stores and protects laptops, an organizer with storage space for media devices, cell phone, business cards and pens, a MP3 or CD player pouch complete with slit for ear phones, a zip-away mesh water bottle holder and side zipper pockets for small miscellaneous items, a dual side pockets for accessories and a zippered file compartment. The great thing about this Fulton bag is the air-lift padding against the back to keep the carrier comfortable.
Before you spend vast amounts of money ensure that you know exactly what you need your backpack to do for you. Having the correct backpack can make carrying your equipment and items a great deal easier. Your weight, body frame, height and level of fitness will also help to determine which type of hiking backpack would suit your trip. There are two main types of backpacks to choose from and these are internal frames and external frames both are excellent and offer different things.
Next is to choose the correct frame size. Remember every backpack is useless (regardless of your good height and top quality of backpack) unless it has a correct frame size according to your body and shape. Gone were the days when people think 'one-size-fits-all'-it far from the truth. Experts strongly believe that your torso size and your overall height are two completely separate measurements when it comes to backpacks. Actually Wayne Gregory was the first backpack designer who thought seriously about the importance of correct frame size to fit your torso.
