How to Choose Backpacking Packs || REI

hey I'm Miranda with the REI co-op a pack can make or break your backpackingtrip and there are tons of awesome options out there right now let's take asecond to geek out about packswhen choosing a pack one of the first things you need to decide is thecapacity the capacity of pack is largely going to depend on the type ofbackpacker you are for example if you're an ultralight backpacker you're probablycarrying a lot less gear and you can get away with something much smaller whereasif you like to have some luxury then you're probably going to want a largerpack but generally speaking if you are doing a weekend trip you're looking at apack like this one that's somewhere between 30 and 50 liters this pack hereis a 45 liter pack these are great for weekend trips for overnight or for warmweather backpacking where you don't need to carry a lot of heavy gear if you'relooking for a multi-day pack you're gonna want something that somewherebetween 50 and 70 liters this is my pack here and it's a 60 liter pack these aregreat for carrying some additional items as well as layers clothing and more foodand fuel so this is a pretty common sized pack and it will work for amultitude of different trips if you're looking for something that this wouldcarry a lot of gear you're looking at an extended trip pack so something likethis one here which is a hundred liters extended trip box cover anything that's70 litres and above these bags are really designed to haul a ton of gear sothey're good for mountaineering or for extended winter backpacking where you'recarrying a lot of heavy layers in gear but they're also great for parents whoare backpacking with children if they need to carry their kids stuff in thepack as well a quick note on ultralight backpacking if you're looking to getyour base weight and that's the weight of your pack - consumables so all ofyour gear - your food your fuel and your water if you're looking to get thatweight under 10 or 12 pounds then you're probably looking at a pack that's a lotsimpler and a lot lighter something more like this guy here you can have yourpack actually weigh a lot less on its own because the gear that you're puttinginside is going to weigh less and it's going to be significantly smaller okayso that's capacity a pax frame is designed to transferweight from your shoulders and onto your hips for a more comfortable carry thereare two main types of pack frames right now the internal frame and the externalframe this pack here has an internal frame and this is certainly the morecommon type of pack nowadays and they're definitely lighter than external framepacks there are a few different ways that a pack may have this internal framethis one has metal tubing that runs around the outside of the pack but theymay also have a metal V shape or even just a hard sheet of plastic like thispack here this is definitely not designed to carry as much weight as aninternal frame pack like this but it's a good option for ultralight backpackersand it will still provide some structure the other type of frame on a pack is anexternal frame pack these used to be the go-to but we now have an updated designwith the internal frame packs these bags are very durable the frames are verydurable but they're not as common and you really don't find them very muchanymore these are a good option for people whowant to lash a lot of gear to the outside of their pack so they're a goodchoice for hunters or anyone who's gonna be carrying unusually sized loads andthey're also just a really good throw back if you want to experience whatbackpacking used to be like some ultralight backpackers will choose touse frameless packs while these don't do as good of a job of transferring theweight to your hips you may not need that if you're carrying a lot less stuffthese are basically just ruck sacks that have backpack straps attached to offersome protection you can add a closed cell foam sleeping pad on the inside ofthe pack and this will protect your back from the gear inside and provide alittle bit of structurekeep in mind that any features that you add to your pack are also going to addweight so you want to strike a balance between the ease of use of the pack andthe additional weight that you're adding there are a ton of different featuresthat you may find on backpacks so we're just going to cover a few of the prettycommon ones the first one is access most packs are going to have top loadingaccess like this one this is just a cinch cord that opens up and allows youto get to all of your gear you may also find packs that have side zippers or youzippers this gives you access into the main compartment of the pack so you canget items that are the bottom or in the middle of the pack this is a featurethat I love I think it's really easy some packs may also have detachablepieces that turn into day packs like this one this lid here has strapsthat come out and then this can be taken off and used as a day pack for day hikespacks may also have this turn into a hip belt or you may find packs to have aremovable reservoir that comes out this is a really awesome feature if you planon backpacking in somewhere and then day hiking from wherever you're setting upcamp my pack has the side of the panel loading access and then it also has amoveable day pack and these are two features that I love another reallycommon feature is pockets so packs may have pockets on the side for waterbottles or two pockets on the hip for different items that you might want tostash you can see this pack here has a water bottle side pocket that you canaccess while the bag is on your back and then there's this shovel pocket in thefront which is great for stashing an extra layer there also might be pocketsthat are in the lid or in the bottom of the lid like this one has that herepacks will also have lash points or daisy chains on the outside this is forstrapping sort of strange loads to the pack or if you want to talk to yourcrampons on the outside of your packs they don't scratch up the inside andthen packs may also have tool attachment points for attaching ice axes or thisone has a spot for attaching a trekking poles that's just a couple of thefeatures there are a ton out there keep in mind that when you're looking atpacks you'll want to look for features that you believe will add value andavoid packs that have features that you don't think you want again there's a tonout there so that might be extra cushy hip belts which you want it might be aseparate compartment for a sleeping bag and just make a decision on what youfind valuable and what you don't want in your packthe most important thing about choosing a pack is finding one that fits youcomfortably packs come in a variety of frame sizes or torso lengths that relateto your back size when you come into a store you can try on a variety ofdifferent packs since they're all gonna fit a little bit differently the bestthing to do is to bring in your own pack if you already have one or come in andhave an REI specialist to fit the pack for you there's so much information onhow to fit your pack so we have an entire video about it and we'll linkthat in the description below once you have a pack that fits you you can usethe straps to adjust the fit there are also women specific packs and those aregonna have a slightly different fit to them and different features such asstraps that cut out a little bit CNA or hip belts that provide a little bit morecushion or a little bit larger that's it for packs and if you have any
