Whether it is climbing, walking, cycling or through, the importance of backpack is always the first.

In the city, your back can easily control the weight from the backpack. But when you walk on an altitude of 5000 meters, you will regret why did not spend a few thousand dollars to buy a better backpack.


A good backpack should meet the following 3 points


1, Carrying is strong.

Soft lying on the burden, is unable to transfer the weight from the shoulder to the hip. And your shoulder is very fragile in the process of walking may not walk a few steps will have the feeling of pain do not want to go, so you can not feel the fun of walking.
While the strong bearing, it will be the perfect weight of the backpack to the hip, the shoulder force is very small or almost no force.


2, the fabric is CORDURA.

In the process of walking, fabric, but related to damage caused by the backpack. Loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars make you feel bad is a small thing, affecting the hiking experience is a big thing.

CORDURA wear to what extent? In general you put yourself down, CORDURA or intact.


3, the details of the design is in place.
What is the details of the design? Do you touch your schoolbag next to the two net bag? The net pocket is the details of the design.
Good outdoor backpack in the external details of the design is extremely hard, and even allows you to no less than under the backpack in the process of completing the required items on foot, take.
