Up until the 1990’s a backpack would generally carry 50-70lbs of packed weight which did not include the weight of the backpack.  The normal packed weight now is between 12lbs and 30lbs.

There is no standard for weight but it is recommended that children only carry 10-20% of their body weight.  The same recommendation applies to adults, so your packing weight should be no more than 20% of your body weight.  So if you weight 150lbs, your maximum pack weight would be 30lbs.

However, for the active individual, involved in activities like hiking, bicycling, hunting, fly fishing,  or any other strenuous outdoor activity you should only carry 10% of your body weight

Some of our lightweight foldable backpacks weigh as little as ¼ of a pound and fit into a handy little pouch.

Weather is always unpredictable so look for a backpack that is both lightweight and waterproof even if you are searching for the best camping backpack, the best hiking backpack, best tactical backpack, or best hunting backpack

Find the right backpack for your activity.

We have you covered so to speak with all types of backpacks including many back[acks by activity such as a hiking camera backpack, hunting backpack, bicycle backpack, camera backpacks, fishing tackle backpack, fly fishing backpack, or camping backpack.
