Post Finding the Right Daypack For Outdoors
Finding the Right Daypack For Outdoors
by: Fiona Kemp

The fact of the matter is that there are a bewildering number of choices available to the modern outdoor enthusiast when it comes to gear. It might almost seem easier to simply close your eyes and point in order to pick a daypack. It would certainly be quicker than most methods. Still, a little thought can get you the daypack you need with very little real effort on the shopping end of things. That way, you can save the sweating for the outdoor activities—knowing all the while that your gear has you covered through thick and thin.

Know Your Needs

Step one in picking your daypack has to be the type of activity that you plan on doing. Almost every outdoor activity has its own requirements when it comes to the type of pack you carry. Knowing whether you want one suitable for hiking or rack climbing alone can narrow the choices considerably and save you a great deal of time. Your activity will tell you about the fundamental needs that you will have for your ideal daypack, things like internal or external frame as well as weight and materials. No matter what type of daypack you are in the market for however, you should be aware of these features:

1 Size - always choose a pack that is sized to fit your needs and know that too big is better than too small. You don’t want to have to leave something important behind, but you also need to be able to support the weight.

2 Shape – daypacks have different shapes depending on the type of movement you will be engaging in. Something bulky and restrictive may fit well for hiking, but be inappropriate for climbing.

3 Comfort - you and your daypack will be getting up close and cozy so you want to make sure that you choose something that fits your body well, is ventilated, and puts the weight in the proper places.

4 Straps – the type of straps a daypack has can determine where it sits and how weight is distributed across your body as well as how comfortable the bag is to carry.

5 Compartments – at the end of the day, a daypack is all about carrying your gear. You need to have capacious enough pockets and compartments to do that and you need them to be accessible as well.

This list will give you a head start on picking the right daypack for your gear.
