When you’re going hiking, you’ll need a hiking backpack that is lightweight so that it doesn’t wear you down while you’re lugging all that hiking gear and scaling that mountain, large enough to contain all your belongings and hiking essentials such as hiking tents, yet sturdy enough to last you for many happy hiking trips. Novaprosports stocks high quality hiking backpacks with consideration given to light weight, functionality and value. Lightweight is a crucial factor when taking your belongings on your hiking trips. Our hiking backpacks are also well designed to have increased ventilation at the back so that perspiration doesn’t get trapped in between the back and the hiking backpack, and they also distribute the weight in the hiking backpack well to provide excellent support to the back throughout your hiking journey.
How Big of a Hiking Backpack Do You Need?
How much volume should you get in a daypack, weekend pack, multi-day backpack, or expedition backpack? We at Novaprosports understand that this might be a little confusing for some. Here are some volume guidelines and advice so you can start shopping for backpacks in the appropriate size range!
Overnight Packs: Less than 35 liters
The smallest of the overnight workhorses, an overnight hiking backpack is designed to accommodate enough gear and food for a light packer for one or two nights. Our TPU Dry-Wet Separating Waterproof Bag 20L - Grey is perfect enough for your overnight packs! This dry sack includes a long sling for easy carry across your back so it always clings on to you.
2-3 Day Packs: 35-50 liters
Efficient packers using newer, less-bulky gear can really keep things light on 1 to 3-night trips by using a pack in this range. You need everything you'd bring on a 1-day backpacking trip for a 3-day backpacking trip, except for a little more food, fuel, toilet paper to stay out an additional 2 days therefore we recommend that you get a backpack with 35 to 50 liters capacity to fit these all in.
If you are planning for a 2 to 3-day backpacking, we sure that you'll love this Hiking Backpack Lightweight 45L in Black. Weighing less than 2kg, this Hiking Backpack Lightweight 45L is a second-generation CR lightweight comfortable bear technology that reduces 50% weight from the traditional aluminum bar designs, increasing 30% in weight-bearing efficiency.
Multiday Packs: 50-75 liters
A light packer will have ample room for five nights or more with a multiday backpack, which is typically a 50L backpack or larger. These are designed to carry more food and cooking fuel than a weekend pack, as well as extra clothes and layers. These are the most popular backpacking packs sold at Novaprosports and they're an excellent choice for warm-weather trips lasting 3 or more days. 50-80 liter packs are also used for backcountry skiing, for day trips, overnighters and sometimes 2-night trips.
