Backpacks: How To Choose
Planning to buy a new pack for the backcountry? There are three main areas where you'll need to make choices:
Backpack capacity: The size pack you'll need is tied to the length of your trip and how much weight and bulk you want to carry.
Backpack features: These are the refinements that affect how the pack works for you.
Backpack fit: Torso length, not your height, matters most.
