Hiking is not only great exercise but it is a way to unwind and get away from the madness of the concrete jungle. Depending on how long you hike you may need nothing but a bottle of water or you might need a whole pack full of supplies. Here are the 5 Best Hiking Backpacks you can buy today.
1. Compact Assault Pack
The Compact Assault Pack is a bag on the smaller side which is perfect for short hikes. Designed to be tough, this pack will hold up in the thickest woods and has enough space for your most essential hiking needs. However, if you want to bring along extra luxuries you probably won’t find ample room with this bag as it really is a “basics only” kind of pack.
2. Black Diamond Nitro
If your pack is heavy even before you put anything in it then you have a problem, but often rugged packs have some weight to it. But the Black Diamond Nitro is different. It is a pack that is both light and tough which is such a rarity. Using a unique rigid foam in its design, the Nitro is able to take a beating without any extra weight to worry about. A well-designed bottle pocket and an easy access top make this a handy pack to have.
3. Dakine Sequence Pack
Part of a good hike is taking in the natural beauty of the wilderness and if you are a bit of a shutterbug you might want to bring some camera equipment. The Dakine Sequence Pack has multiple compartments and a wide array of pockets that creates easy organization that’s perfect for all your lenses, filters, and camera accessories.
4. Berghaus Freeflow II 40
Most packs are designed with an average body size in mind which means if you are on the short or tall side you’ll just have to make do. The Freeflow, however, is designed with extra size customization allowing you to not only adjust straps but also lengthen or shorten the body of the pack. When it comes to the comfort of hiking this is a great pack for those who don’t have an average body type.
5. Osprey Exos 58
Considered an all-rounder, the Exos 58 really can cope with any kind of hike you might be taking. This lightweight pack is fine for a short 3-mile hike on easy trails but still tough enough to hang with you on longer day hikes in rough terrain. With plenty of pockets, you can easily access your more important gear. This is just essentially the most versatile pack you are likely to find.
