Backpacks

Goods packed on tour with the matching backpack

Whether you walk through the town, Alpine mountain biking or trekking tour: For every purpose, you need a matching backpack, comfortably to transport all the necessary equipment for outdoor activities. The range of different types of backpacks is very wide and ranges from the small day Pack, great trekking backpacks. This overview should help to make something clearer the jungle.

Find the right size of the backpack

First of all one should ask the question, what and how much you want to carry in your backpack. Weight and volume of the equipment is critical: A light jacket may need a lot of space in your backpack, while a laptop with little volume has a relatively high weight. As reference values can be located depending on on following dimensions backpacks (with orientation to the maximum working load) by body weight, material and processing:
up to 10 L (max. 5 kg): short cycling, running, Stadt15-20 L (max. 7 kg): day tours hiking/bike with little luggage, climbing, Ski20-25 L (max. 8 kg): day tours in each Bereich25-35 L (max. 10 kg): two day tour (or more if you have little luggage) in each area, business and Schule35-45 L (12 kg): multi-day hiking (hiking), Ausgedehne climbing tours, mountaineering, Skitouren45-65 L (max 18 kg): expanded trekking tours, Reise65 L and more (max 25 kg): trekking tours with self-sufficiency, expeditions, great tours

the right back system of a backpack

next to the correct size, the main criterion for the choice of the backpack is the choice for the optimum back system. A lightweight, straight cushion is sufficient for small backpacks and city or Office backpacks. It allows for easy loading and is stable and close to the back. Same applies to extremely lightweight backpacks and such to the running or climbing. Backpacks for cycling are according to purpose, well ventilated (MeSH) or close-fitting. Ventilation of advantage is for longer trips. Better off who is rather quickly on the road or on rough terrain (mountain bike) is a stable seat. The same applies to other intensive sports such as skiing, downhill and climbing. < br / > hikers also are most comfortable on the road when a tightly stretched grid ensures distance between back and backpack. It dispenses with ventilation at the back with heavy loads (trekking tour) and instead uses a fixed plate, so that the weight is close to the body. As a general rule for backpacks for hiking and trekking: the most load (70-80%) should be on the hip to relieve the shoulders in the long term. For a wider, padded waist belt is essential, which should be also bigger and wider with increasing size of the Rucksacksg or loading. < br / > the cut also plays an important role and should be taken into account at the time of purchase: because the emphasis lies ideally directly on the back, very large and very lightweight backpacks (for motion-intensive sports) are narrow and long cut. Cycling backpacks, however, have a shorter and wider pear shape as you would otherwise hit the helmet while riding on the lid.

The right backpack equipment

, The features are the last important feature. While a backpack or back pack in looking bag with Raincover, stock holder, separate bottom compartment (for wet clothes, shoes or sleeping bag) and a device for hydration systems, you need fixtures for ski and climbing equipment for alpine tours. Very large backpacks should have more access to the main compartment (front, top, bottom), otherwise digging is announced! A specialist on the waist strap of the backpack for small items such as knives or camera is recommended. A good backpack for the Office includes nice details such as notebook compartment, bottle holders and Organizerfächer. Supposed trivialities such as key holders and whistle often round off the overall picture of a good backpack and make perfect the wear and Outdoorspaß!
