For those people who love outdoor adventure and leaving the rat race behind to explore the wilderness, camping bags are something taken very seriously. Most people use backpacks as camping bags, and they are very well suited for this job. The best options have a lot of room for gear, are comfortable to wear for long hikes, and have some protection against rain as well.
Camping Bags Should Suit the Carrier
When you are choosing the bags that your group will bring up to the campsite, everyone should pick one that suits them best. People of different weights, heights and carrying abilities will need different types of camping bags. The worst thing on a long hike is to have a bag that hurt your back, shoulders or arms.
Some camping bags are elaborate affairs with metal frames, multiple straps across the front chest and waist areas, and extra straps to hold tools, climbing ropes, and the sleeping bag or bed roll. Others are more self-contained and look much more like a regular backpack. These bags should still have multiple compartments so different items can be kept separately. No one would want to pack their food next to their dirty socks.
To get the best bags for you, do not go with the least expensive automatically. Check each company’s reputation and make sure the bag is sturdy and well made. The worst thing is if your camping bags fail while you are on the trail. Just imagine carrying all those things out by hand.
