It helps to have a good sized backpack for a camping trip that will take an entire weekend. A weekend backpack is a great option to use among large backpacks for this occasion. This is a type of larger backpack that has plenty of space and is very useful for how easy it can be to carry around for any camping trip.
A weekend backpack is named for how it can be used for a camping trip that can take two nights. This type of backpack is one that is primarily going to be large enough to handle a large amount of materials that will be needed for a weekend camping trip. A typical one of these large backpacks will be at least three thousand cubic inches in size and can be up to five thousand cubic inches in size. Also, one of these backpacks will be only about four to six pounds in weight.
The ability to carry this type of large backpack is very helpful. This type of backpack is going to be longer in length and as a result will need to be carried through straps that attach to the back. Traditional shoulder straps can be used for these large backpacks but torso adjustment features are available on some bags too. The light weight of one of these large backpacks helps too.
Sleeping bag compartments are common features in these large backpacks. This is a type of compartment that helps to store a sleeping bag and is generally found on the bottom part of the backpack. This is used to help with protecting the sleeping bag that will be used during the evenings that one is out on a camping trip.
Also, smaller compartments can be available throughout different exterior parts of the backpack. This is especially helpful for smaller and more fragile camping materials that can be used. Snowboard and ski carrying materials can be used in some of these backpacks too.
A major part of these backpacks is that they are very durable. A typical one of these backpacks will be made with strong padding materials and in many cases HDPE framesheets that have been recycled. Nylon is also used in many different large backpacks like these. Rain covers are used in some of these backpacks to help with protecting the materials in the backpack.
