You could use a backpack to carry around all kinds of goods which is nice when you plan on going a to a lot of different places once you get to you camping area. Another good use for your backpack is for extra storage.

The problem is that there is a lot of choice when it comes to backpacks. There is a lot of choice in quality and there is a big variety in the price as well. The best thing would be stay in the low end of the price range when it comes to backpacks. When you go camping in nature there will be a lot of wear and tear so chances are that your backpack will suffer a lot on your trip. So don't invest a lot of money or be prepared to always be looking out for your backpack on your trip to see if nothing happens to it.

What should we choose?

One of the backpacks you should take a look at is the Mountainsmith Circuit 3.0. It has a lot of storage and suspension system that has load-dispersing, this makes it a perfect backpack for those long trips. It give some extra comfort because of the molded foam in the back panel. There is also a clear map window so you can see what is on the inside of the backpack. A nice feature of this particular backpack is the fact that you can detach the lid which converts it to a lumbar day pack.

Bean Osprey Aether 60 is another great backpack. This is really lightweight backpack with a expedition pack with a large capacity which also has an adjustable suspension system. This way it gets a comfortable and custom fit. This backpack is good for women and men alike without leaving you with an aching back after a long day of hiking.

These are just two of the many affordable backpacks you can choose from. You will have enough choice and you should really take all the time you need before you buy one. In the end you should let comfort be the main decision point even before the price. You should keep in mind that the price will not help you get rid of the pain in your shoulders the moment you are hiking through nature. Sometime you can find second hand backpacks in the personals in news papers. That way you can try out a backpack for not too much money. Always do some investigating beforehand on the internet to see experiences other people had with different kinds of backpacks.

Visit a shop that specializes in camping gear, they can give you the perfect advice when it comes to backpacks. Be sure to tell them what type of camper you are and what kind of trips you will be undertaking. A backpack should be cheap but above all comfortable.
