Buying an outdoor backpack can be a challenging task. There are various sizes, colors, shapes and of course brands and qualities. So how do you determine which outdoor backpack is best suited for your needs? This article will help you with that by giving you some tips what to look for when you want to purchase one.
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.
Included on your backpacking gear list would be backpacking guides to ensure you know where you're going once you set out exploring the great outdoors. To have a positive experience on one of your outdoor adventure vacations, be sure to learn how to pack a backpack for hiking before leaving the comfort of your home. Hiking for beginners will only be as successful as the preparation process allows. That is why it is so critical to take all the backpacking advice you can to heart.
Taking a dog on a backpacking trip as it is a great companion. Although you also have to train your dog to get accustomed to the idea of roaming with a backpack on the trip, otherwise it can create problems. It can also bite you. Before the trip, allow the dog to wear the backpack for some minutes every day. Start this exercise with an empty backpack and then as the dog feels comfortable with it, add items so that he becomes completely cozy. Another thing that has to be noted is to ensure that the dog is fit to be taken to a trip. It is necessary because if it is not, then who knows you may wind the trip by boarding the ill dog in a backpack. This is not wanted, so take your dog to a vet before beginning the trip and its preparations.
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.
