The main equipment of a tourist is a hiking backpack
The most inquisitive, optimistic, mobile and adventurous people are tourists. A tourist is an incorrigible romantic and at the same time a very practical person. After all, to fully experience the beauty of the world around you can only when you have everything you need for a normal organization of marital life. That is why, when going on the road, each traveler chooses first a backpack in which it is easy and convenient to accommodate a lot of useful, useful and, ultimately, vital things.
It's easiest to go to the store and buy any backpack you like. Camp experience, however, proves that the case must be approached more thoroughly. Based on the purpose of travel, the nature and extent of the route (especially on foot), the time away from civilization, we must make certain demands on the basic tourist equipment.
- It is necessary that its volume corresponds to the number of necessary things in the hike - no more (half-empty backpack is very uncomfortable) and no less (does not fit everything you need).
- It is important to have at least two offices: for things that are important, but not required every day; for what should always be at hand at any time. The presence of overhead pockets is welcomed.
- When choosing a backpack, pay attention to the system of straps and handles for carrying and the presence of special inserts or a frame that evenly distributes the weight. This is especially true when preparing for long-distance hiking. Convenient adjustment of the straps will allow to adjust the equipment for growth.
- Since we do not choose the weather, we must be prepared for any changes in it. Therefore, a backpack made of durable, wear-resistant and waterproof fabric is the best choice. At the same time, pay attention to the possibility of ventilation from the back - this will greatly facilitate the difficulties of a long transition.
- Accessories (buttons, hooks, fasteners), convenient and easy to fasten, becomes important when in a difficult situation you need to quickly get the required item. Do not forget about it.
