How to Choose an Outdoor Backpack
Many families enjoy hiking, camping or taking part in other outdoor activities together, but these activities often require appropriate equipment. One piece of common equipment for outdoor activities is a backpack. A backpack needs to have a proper fit, durability and withstand changing weather. If you need to choose an outdoor backpack, follow these steps to make a great selection
- Select a backpack that meets your needs. If you are going on a day hike, a traditional backpack may suit your needs. If you are going on a longer trip, you may need a specialized backpack with a frame or a hydration pack. If you will be doing water activities, like canoeing, you may need a waterproof backpack. If you will be taking along special gear, you may need a sack that has compartments or holders to store that gear.
- Look for a backpack that has a lot of padding. Padded shoulder straps and a padded waist belt can help to provide comfort. Wearing these straps properly can also help to reduce injury as they can help to increase proper weight distribution of the load.
- Purchase a backpack that fits. Most backpacks have adjustable straps that allow for a customized fit. Be sure these straps adjust to fit your body type. You'll also want to be sure that the backpack is proportional to your body. It should not be wider than you.
- Consider what material to purchase. If you have a heavy load, a pack made of heavy material may be more comfortable to carry. It will most likely have lots of padding and straps to help you get a secure fit. A backpack of lightweight material may be less weight to carry, but the load may not feel as stable and comfortable.
- Invest in your backpack. If you plan on using your backpack a lot, you'll want to spend the money to get the backpack that best suits your needs. Quality backpacks with lots of features can be pricy, but the expense may be worth the comfort and convenience that the added features may provide.
How to Wash a Backpack
With all the wear and tear it gets, a backpack will inevitably get dirty. If you want to keep it from getting smelly and germy as well, you want to wash it at least once a year. It's easy to do, depending on the material and the quality of the bag
- Asses the fabric of the bag. Usually, backpacks are nylon or canvas. If yours is not, check inside the bag for a tag that gives care directions. If the bag has a metal frame, ask someone at a sporting goods store about proper care before attempting to wash it yourself.
- Spot treat places on the bag where there is visible gunk (e.g. gum that got mashed into the weave or mud caked on the bottom). Start by gently scrubbing those areas with a toothbrush and water.
- Check the straps. Often backpacks have foam in the straps. Sometimes you can remove the straps. If that is possible, do so and wash the straps separately by hand.
- Place it in a pillow case or a garment bag and throw it in the washing machine with a gentle laundry detergent. Wash it all by itself the first time you wash it, as the color may bleed onto other laundry. Wash it on the "warm" setting and on the gentlest cycle.
- If you choose to hand-wash the bag, get a tub, fill it with warm water, and scrub gently, allowing the bag to soak for a good amount of time before doing a final rinse and hanging it to dry.
- Let the backpack hang dry, as all the straps, material coatings, plastic parts and metal pieces may be a problem in a dryer. There is often a coating on the inside of the backpack to make it water-repellent that can melt in the dryer. If you don't have a place to let it air dry, put it in the dryer on the "air dry" setting. This will remove excess moisture without using heat, so when you take it out, it will still be damp, but not melted. You can then throw it on a hanger and hang it in your closet until it fully dries.
- Treat the backpack manually with water-repellent spray, as washing the backpack may deteriorate the water-repellent sealant.
How to Organize a Backpack
Properly organizing your backpack makes your hiking trip much more enjoyable. The general rule of thumb is to pack lighter items at the bottom and heavier items at the top. You may need to adjust the weight distribution once you're on the trail, fine-tuning it for the specific type of terrain you're hiking.
- Put your sleeping bag at the bottom of the backpack. Some internal-frame backpacks have a separate compartment for sleeping bags. Use this compartment, since it helps keep your sleeping bag safe from compression.
- Pack clothes first. Clothes are the lightest things you'll carry, so they should be at the bottom of the backpack. To help keep clothes dry and separated, put them inside strong zip lock bags. Raingear and a light jacket should be closer to the top or in exterior pockets for easy access.
- Organize food and cooking gear on top of the clothes. Store as much as you can inside of the pots and cups to save room. Store the cooking fuel inside a bag in case of leakage, or in a separate pocket.
- Place tents inside the sleeping bag compartment or outside the backpack. Since most tents are lightweight, they should be near the bottom of the backpack. Keep the tent inside its waterproof bag.
- Take advantage of outside pockets for organization. Use them to store items you need often, so you can get to them quickly. This includes items such as maps, snack foods, sunscreen and rain gear.
