Choosing a backpack 選擇背囊

There are countless sizes, models and brands of backpacks in the stores, and choosing one is not always a simple task. Some come equipped with special functions (for example ski attachments and rope pockets) and are intended for a specific use. Others are more all-purpose and can be used for a number of different outdoor activities.

When choosing a backpack, its intended use and the things you will need to pack are the most important factors. Ask yourself what you intend to use the backpack for: day trips, long treks, inter-railing, climbing, everyday activities, etc. You also might want to use the backpack for different activities. If this is the case, it might be a good idea, for example, to choose a backpack with compression straps, so you can adjust the size and pull the sides taut if the pack is not full.

Choosing the right size

How much you want - and physically are able - to carry varies depends on how tall you are, your body type, the equipment you will need, etc. Several rules of thumb to follow:

• 20-40 litre backpacks are good for day trips and everyday use
• 40-60 litre backpacks are good for travelling or trekking between cabins
• 60 litre backpacks and up are better for longer adventures that require a tent, food and other equipment

In the winter you will probably need a backpack at the larger end of the scale, since safety equipment, warm garments, etc., often take up more space.

Finding a support system that is right for you

Every body is unique and when you are testing a backpack in a store, it is important to make sure it sits perfectly against your back. Preferably, add some weight to the backpack, so you can get a better idea of how it will feel in practice. Our larger backpacks for trekking, travelling, etc., are equipped with an adjustable support system that can be adapted to the length of your back, and several models also come in men’s and women’s versions to take into consideration differences in anatomy. On the page about important details we explain in more detail how the support system makes it easier for your body to carry the weight of the backpack.

Softpack or frame backpack

Today, backpacks without a frame, often called softpack backpacks, are most common. They are suitable for most activities and are often lighter and more flexible than traditional backpacks that have an external frame. They sit snugly against your back, which can be advantageous, for example when skiing. For trekking in difficult terrain with very large packs, however, frame backpacks are still the most stable option. They also provide a certain degree of ventilation at the back, and it is possible to add large pack bags to the frame, both above and below the backpack itself.

店裡陳列的背囊有不同尺寸、款式和品牌,要從中選擇並不容易。有的背囊具有特殊功能(例如綁縛雪板裝置、拉繩口袋),專為特別用途而設。也有比較類似多功能背囊,適合從事各種戶外活動之用。

選擇背囊時,用途和需要收納哪些物品是最重要的考慮因素。問問自己選擇這款背囊的目的:是要日常旅遊、長途行山、跨鐵道旅行、登山或日常活動等等。或許你想要一個能讓您進行多種不同活動的背囊,如果是這樣的話,或許你應該選擇一個附壓縮帶的背囊,方便自行調整大小,裝不滿時也可以把兩側拉緊。

選擇正確尺寸

你想背、能背多少物品,取決於你的身高、體型和裝備等因素。幾個大原則是:

• 20-40升的背囊適合日常旅遊和日常活動使用
• 40-60升的背囊適合旅行、和營地間的行山使用
• 60 升以上的背囊適合長征探險,需攜帶帳篷、食物和其他裝備之用

冬天需要攜帶一些安全配備、保暖衣物等等,比較佔空間,因此可能需要較大的背囊

尋找適合自己的支撐系統

每個人的身體都是獨一無二的,當你在試背囊的時候,一定要注意背囊是否完全貼合背部。最好在背囊裡裝點東西增加重量,就能體驗真實使用時的感覺。我們專為行山或旅遊設計用的大背囊都配有可調節的支撐系統,可依個人背部長度調整,部分款式還分男裝和女裝,也是考慮到不同的人體工學。在重要細節的頁面中,我們詳細說明了支撐系統如何讓你的身體更輕易背負背囊的重量。

軟身背囊或附背架背囊

目前沒有背架的軟身背囊最為普遍,適合大多數活動使用,重量較輕,也比傳統附有背架的背囊靈活。這種背囊的貼背特性對於滑雪等活動是一大好處,然而在崎嶇地形攜帶著重裝備行山時,附背架背囊才是最穩當的選擇。附背架背囊還有背部通風功能,同時可以於背囊上方和下方額外加裝大型收納包。
