HOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR HIKING HOW TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR BACKPACK ?

Depending on your activity, you need to carry all your equipment with you, so think of the Osprey large capacity bag! If you are a woman, opt for a backpack adapted to your morphology, you will be much more comfortable.
-The organization of your bag: the filling of the bag is a key point. Depending on its shape and the number of litres, the storage space will be different. When hiking, it is essential to have external pockets so that objects are within easy reach. The flap pocket is also interesting because it allows you to store clothes very easily.
-The features of the backpack: check if the backpack has interesting features such as adjustable shoulder straps, a rain cover, carrying straps (belt, chest strap), etc. Make sure that your backpack is not too heavy.
-The comfort of carrying the bag: this point is essential because it is this that will make you spend pleasant moments. It is therefore important to ensure that the backpack is comfortable to carry, particularly with the presence of a chest strap, a carrying belt, a back support or adjustable shoulder straps. The weight of the bag is an essential criterion to take into account! Find out more about the comfort of Lowe Alpine backpacks on our website.
