Choosing the best backpack for traveling 2019

If you are trying to find the best backpack for travel it can be challenging to find one that ticks all the boxes. Choosing the best travel backpacks for Travel ling is as much an attitude of mind as anything else: you have the freedom to do as you please and by and large go where you like. | low much weight you should carry on a backpacking trip is impossible to pin down: there are too many variables to consider not least personal preference. How much you want to take and thus how much space is needed and the amount of weight involved will influence your choice of rucksack. When 1 look at my favourite ruck- sack of some 15 years ago it seems like a dinosaur (and weighs in like one as well).

Be realistic about your experience and aims when chat- ting to staff in a specialist outdoor shop and take their advice on fit. As most shops tend to specialise in two or three ruck- sack brands comparing a variety of back systems between a number of shops is often easier For such a range of options buying a rucksack in a popular outdoor recreation area such as the Lake District can be a plus (even though I usually favour supporting local shops). Good shops will have a range of soft weights available to simulate a loaded rucksack; don’t buy one if you’ve only tried and adjusted it empty. If money is no object you can save masses of weight on gear including your rucksack. Most of us have to balance aspirations with budgets Don’t delay in heading off out because you haven/t got the latest and lightest rucksack design.


Comfort and construction Rucksack harness or suspension systems vary in detail and materials but all share the goals of ensuring comfort and easy adjustment regardless of clever marketing descriptions. Shoulder straps and hip belts work in harness to share the load between chest and hips with the aid of a light flexible internal frame‘ Ingenious foam and mesh back panels try to reduce sweaty back syndrome but it’s a fact of backpacking life for most of us. Shoulder straps often contoured to follow a natural line should be strong enough to hold their shape without chafing pinching or sliding about; a linking chest strap ensures they stay in place. On backpacking ruck- sacks the hip belt is the main load-bearing component and usually has generous firm padding often moulded into a pre-formed shape that helps to hold the rucksack securely and comfortably on the hips. Whether the rucksack you’re considering comes in different sizes or has back length adjustment getting the fit right is essential for comfort. Take the time and advice to get it right.
