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.
Young children enjoy carrying backpacks as a sign of their maturity and growing independence. Even preschoolers and kindergarteners like to carry backpacks to have a special place to put their things. Just remember, pediatricians advise that filled backpacks should weigh no more than 10-15% of a child's body weight. Most school backpacks also have adjustable straps for a more comfortable fit.
First of all, remember the golden rule of backpacking \"buy right and pack light\". That means you should buy the right backpack according to your needs and pack it light with essential things only. A right backpack is the one with the right size to fit your torso. It is the first and most important step to safe backpack use. If you can bring one of your friends with you while buying any backpack then it is ok, otherwise ask the salesperson to help you measure your backpack properly.
Because backpacks are so useful and versatile and have been around for such a long time, you are going to find a variety of options for you to choose from. Because like pretty much any item that has been around for a long time, the backpack has been modified and improved in different versions and varieties to suit the needs of people today. Because our needs are so diverse, and each person may need a backpack for one reason or another, so too have the backpacks of today become diverse to better match our needs.
Similarly, another important consideration is proper fit of waist belt by knowing its correct size. In simpler words, the hip belt is meant for hips and not for your waist. Therefore hip belt should rest on your hipbone, not on your waist, because if it is on your waist then you will carry too much weight on your shoulder. In the same way if it is too low, it is bound to interfere with your walking. Quite frankly, both are undesirable. Ideally with a full pack on, the top edge of the waist belt should ride one inch above the top of the hip bone. Lastly, you should also pay attention to shoulder straps. These days many good quality backpacks are available in the market with adjustable shoulder straps. Backpacks with self-adjustable shoulder are regarded as top backpacks, because in these backpacks the shoulder straps can be rotated to accommodate individual neck and shoulder shapes.
A backpack is probably the most versatile and use item that everyone owns. Everyone needs a backpack, no matter what the purpose may be. Backpacks are easy to carry around, they're useful because you can fit a lot of stuff into them, and most importantly, they are made of some pretty sturdy material so they can carry hold quite a bit of weight in them. Whether you call it a backpack rucksack, or a knapsack, there is no denying that a backpack is probably one of the most useful items you are going to have in your possession.
