Hiking & Backpacking
Backpacking a somehow new form of tourism and hobby is increasing in popularity, as we speak. Getting out of the house and leaving your car behind, will give you access to a whole different world and parts of nature that you couldn’t see otherwise.A walking pace will give you time to appreciate nature and wilderness at its best.
For outdoor ‘connoisseurs’ or on the contrary, beginners seeking adventure on the wild side, we have gathered a wide selection of camping accessories designed to complete your camping trip. All you need to do is sit back and relax in the comfort of your own home while assessing the style, size and features.
Whether you are looking for a water resistant material, plenty of pockets for a very well-organized pack , an external back support frame, or padded hip and should straps, we have it all. Some of our models can even save you the trouble of carrying a tent, so look for our convertible backpacks!
Having the right backpack can make the world of a difference and can lead to many successful and enjoyable experiences, regardless if we are talking about a few hours hike or spending few nights under the stars. There is no right or wrong way to pack.The best way to find out what works for you would be to lay out all your things at home and try different versions until you get it right.
Perhaps a backpack checklist would ensure that nothing will be missed off.
Packing can be broken down in three zones:
Bottom - for the items you will not need until you camp:
- Sleeping bag
- Sleeping pad
- Layers for sleeping
- Camping shoes, maybe?
Core zone, for heavier things:
- Food stash
- Cooking essentials, stoves and other tools
Top zone for those camping and hiking essentials:
- Extra clothes, in case of temperature change / rain
- First aid kit
- Toilet supplies
Once you are all set up and happy with your backpack choice, our suggestions for a complete experience is to make sure you eat and drink enough on your trip, not to bring too much items and thoroughly checking the weather so there will be no surprises there. We know that packing efficiently can cover a lot of gear so depending on your needs, no doubt will find the perfect backpack to make your trip truly memorable!
