There are so many backpacks to choose from, and choosing the right one for your child is not always easy. Backpacks come in all sizes, colors, fabrics, and shapes-all of which help kids express their own sense of style. As practical as backpacks are for those who use them, backpacks can cause strained muscles and joints and back pain when worn incorrectly.
Undoubtedly, backpack is an essential gear for every outdoor event to carry your world along with you. Experts believe that when it comes to choosing a right backpack a good rule of thumb is, \"Buy right and pack light.\" There is a large variety available in the market ranging from expensive to cheap, lightweight to ultra-lightweight and highly fashionable to real basic. So it may turn out to be a real daunting and challenging task when it comes to choosing a right backpack for your outdoor activity. Most of us don't know what exactly a right backpack is.
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.
So, make sure that the load of the backpack is as per the breed of the animal. Humans should also ensure that the dog has a snugly fitting backpack. So take him to the store to buy the right kind of gear for him. Make sure that he also nods his head in approval for the color of the backpack. Not getting the right kind of backpack for your canine companion can cause problems when it runs away with the backpack, which contains so important camping gear. Also, see that it has the capacity to carry any of your extensive gear in the backpack.
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.
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.
