Staring with a suitable backpack that fits you! This means that you should always get a backpack depending on the length of your torso rather than based on your height. There are several backpacks that come in different sizes. These sizes are made on the basis of different torso lengths of different people.

The other important attribute to consider while buying a backpack is the capacity of the backpack. This you can easily decide by assessing the kind and lengths of trips or activities you would be doing when you will use your backpack. If it is to be used mostly for weekend trips, then you’d need a smaller capacity backpack as compared to trip that will last a whole week or so. Because this way, you would know the number and weights of items you will be putting inside the backpack.
And finally,the features of a backpack are an important consideration while buying it. The first feature that buyers usually look for is the frame type of the backpack. Let’s say you are a hiker, so it goes without saying that you will be looking for a body hugging frame so that you may easily hike on uneven surfaces and terrains without any worries. Ventilation is another feature that buyers look for if their bodies tend to sweat a lot. They need some kind of airflow between their backs and the backpack. Another important feature is the number of pockets that backpack has. Usually, these pockets are included as hip-belt pockets, front pockets and shovel pockets for easy access.
