Buying a hiking backpack that suits you is almost as important as buying a shoe that suits you. Your backpack is like a companion throughout your trek. It’s either going to make your trek a pleasurable one or is going to be a burden to you. Given in the blog below are some tips, to make sure you buy the right kind of backpack.
One of the popular custom bag manufacturers have curated a trendy collection of hiking backpacks you can have a look at. Retailers can invest in it to offer their customers a large variant of hiking backpacks.
What capacity of the backpack should you go for?
The first thing to do is consider the total weight you are going to carry. This will depend upon the duration of the trek. Are you going for a day trek without overnight camping? Or are you camping for multiple days?
One-day treks can be done with day packs. They are lightweight, sturdy enough to carry 5 kg of load. Always look for one with a hip belt to distribute the weight evenly. They come in 20 to 30 L (litre) sizes. You can use such a backpack on short weekend treks too!
These treks require backpacks with greater capacity, like 40, 50 and 60 L. These bags can carry gear ranging from 8 to 13 kg. They come with wider straps and hip belts to help you distribute weight evenly and minimize discomfort. A 40-50 L backpack may suffice for a weekend trek. A trek up that’s around five days long can be done with a 60 L backpack.
Trek that are more than a week-long such as the Rupin Pass Trek, Har Ki Dun Trek and Goechala Trek will require you to carry more load. Hence, they require more durable backpacks that can carry extra heavy loads. Expedition Backpacks come in various sizes of 70, 80, 90 L and can carry loads from 15 to 30 kg. They have a durable internal frame made of aluminum or stainless steel.
