Buying A New Backpack?

Some of the popular brands among Filipino backpackers

For every journey there is a right backpack. But you don’t need to embark on all kinds of trekking/running activities at once. Thus, you don’t need to have all of them backpacks at the same time. If you are about to buy your first backpack, you may want to consider the following tips.

My BACKPACKS

The first thing you gotta have when backpacking is, of course, your backpack. You can bring any backpack or any pack that you want as long as it can carry the stuff that you need. You may use your Dickies or Jansport packs but for optimum performance you need certain features that may not be present in school bags. If you’re thinking of bringing a tent, a cookset, and a stove, you may put away those ‘turtle-y’ Jansport and Dickies packs. They won’t leave any more room for your other stuff. If you’re expecting to carry heavy loads, you’ll need padded straps to cushion the strain on your shoulders. Needless to say, the type of pack that you’ll need depends on the type of activity you’re embarking on. Such is the reason why I have collected five backpacks.

Shop and Climb

my camping stuff
Mountain climbing is not a very cheap recreation. If you really want to take it seriously, you have to be financially ready. The prices of mountaineering backpacks, shoes and clothes may get you culture-shocked. But just like how mountain climbers wait for Piso Fare to deal with expensive airfares, there is always a way to get around the price tag. The following list of shops might help you make the most out of your cash. In this article, I hope to be of some help especially to those who are planning to do some splurging this money season. Below is a list of the shops I have gone to and intend to go to.
