August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #138: Backpacks For The Outdoors

Tip of the Week


Backpacks for school, for the subway, for skateboarding, for laptops -- what next? Perhaps it's a revolution in the way backpacks originally came into public view -- as survival gear for hunters, campers and others whose paths took them into the outdoors.

Today's outdoor backpacks include highly evolved features to safeguard the spine, including side compression, optional padded hip belts and independently adjustable shoulder straps with extra padding.
For the serious camper, backpacks can include places to carry ice axes and trekking poles, water-resistant map cases, and rain covers.
