It’s a nice feeling heading out into nature on an adventure with nothing but your backpack. Filled with all your essential stuff, it’s important to have the right type of backpack. Choosing one isn’t always easy.
The first thing you should consider is how long you will be staying outside and determine the size of the backpack after those needs. It also depends on what kind of activities you will be spending time doing, like fishing or maybe climbing.
If you are planning on just staying out for a night or two, a smaller backpack might be sufficient. A 35 liter model might be suitable to fit enough gear, some extra clothes, food and water, tools, hygien products and smaller necessities.
Staying a weekend it might require a 35-50 liter model. These are big enough to carry a tent, a sleeping bag, extra clothing, cooking wares, first aid kits, and even fit a chair and a lantern with some skills.
A 50-75 liter bag will be sufficient for 5 nights or even a week. These are designed so you can bring more food and fuel for cooking. In this you can fit warmer sleeping bags and more equipment for trekking in the mountains.
