This summer, I started to do a bit of backpacking with some friends since this was something that we had talked about doing for a long time. It was wonderful being able to spend several days out in the woods hiking from one location to the next. I really enjoyed being able to spend a bit of time looking at different items that were ones that we could use when out on these trips.
One of the most important things to do when out backpacking is to make sure that you are able to pick out some lightweight items that you can carry with you. Having your bag be as light as possible is key to staying comfortable while you are out backpacking. For this reason, we made sure to purchase a lightweight tent and some lightweight sleeping bags to take with us.
Even the camping stove that we brought with us and the food that we carried was as light as possible so we could make it with our bags. We were able to enjoy our backpacking trip a lot more since the packs that we were carrying didn’t hold us back with their weight. Having the right kind of gear really made all the difference.
