Hiking is a popular past time and hikers need the best equipment. Our hiking backpacks are designed so they are lightweight, weather proof and hold everything you need for your trip. Hiking backpacks tend to be larger than casual ones as they usually have to carry camping equipment as well as clothing. They have extra pockets to cater for sleeping bags and tents, and for keeping all your essentials neatly organised. As these backpacks usually carry more of a load, the straps and back supports have been designed to spread the weight so they are easier to carry and don’t put all the pressure on the shoulders. Straps are both padded and adjustable to make these backpacks comfortable to carry too. Some hiking backpacks can be used as a normal backpack too and you can also choose one which comes with a strap so it can be used as a gym bag.
