The Most Comfortable Styles of Backpacks Designed for Camping. Make The Right Choice Of A Backpack!

Generally, there're a few major types of backpacks designed for camping. The choice of an appropriate backpack depends mostly on the personal preference, however, some backpacks are more suitable for definite types of camping than others.

The first type of backpacks is an internal frame backpack offering the metal frame built into the inside of the backpack. It will closely touch your back. Another type is an external frame backpack represented by a big metal frame with the backpack elements built onto it. The external frame backpack sits far from the back and sometimes extends above the wearer's head. And the third type of backpacks is a frameless backpack that's somewhat smaller than the previous two types. Unfortunately, this backpack is too small for a camping expedition, but rather suitable for a day pack.

In order to determine what type of a backpack you need it's recommended to follow several ways, but at first get acquainted with the most considerable advantages and disadvantages of each type of backpacks:

· The internal frame backpack hangs close to the human body that makes it easier to carry as it simply doesn't interfere with your center of gravity.

· The external frame backpack hangs somewhat far from the body making it more difficult to carry.

· As the internal frame backpack sits very close to the body it will offer you warmth. If you enjoy hiking in hot weather, an internal frame backpack may seem to you too warm.


· As an external frame backpack sits far from your back it lets a breeze circulate between your back and the backpack cooling you.

Now, knowing the advantages and disadvantages of an internal and external frame backpack, it will be easier for you to make the right choice, but remember that the major thing for you should be maximum comfort offered by the backpack. But how will you understand that the backpack fits? Study the following tips.

· Wearing the backpack you should feel free to move your head to all sides and not to hit it on the backpack.

· Squatting down, the backpack shouldn't hit you in the back of the calves.

· Walking with the backpack on that has some weight in it shouldn't cause you any pain in your shoulders or back. Otherwise you'll need to adjust the backpack, and if this doesn't bring you the necessary result this backpack probably doesn't fit you. In any case, it isn't recommended to take it on a hiking trip, otherwise you're going have problems.

· If the chosen backpack doesn't offer a sternum strap or hip strap, consider another backpack. The matter is that these straps are extremely necessary for redistributing the weight of the backpack in proper manner.

Summing up, it's important to emphasize that if you've decided to go in for camping seriously, invest your money in a high-quality backpack as a backpack is probably the most important part of your equipment for successful camping. A wrong backpack can spoil your camping trip, while an appropriate one will make your trip really enjoyable.
