When choosing a hiking backpack, you're looking for the best hiking backpack to stand up to rough and rugged outdoor environments. The hiking backpacks in our assortment are made of strong and sturdy materials, such as polyester and nylon, with high deniers, so you can be sure your pack can withstand long hikes up mountains or cold-weather camping trips and hiking excursions. Packs with water-resistant and weather-resistant construction and finishes provide added durability. Find backpacks for your other needs in our vast assortment of backpacks.
The size of your backpack is essential to making sure you have enough space to store all of your necessary gear. For shorter hiking trips, a small hiking backpack with a smaller capacity may be a good choice, while larger hiking backpacks are necessary for longer excursions. Our collection includes backpacks with additional interior and exterior storage pockets to keep your valuables safe or make important items more readily accessible. Hiking-specific features, like carabiner clips and hydration packs, are an added bonus to your pack.
Make sure your back and shoulders are comfortable on long hikes and trips by choosing a hiking backpack with a multitude of comfortable carrying features. Backpacks with adjustable shoulder straps allow you to adjust the bag to fit comfortably on your shoulders, while padded straps and ventilated back panels can help you push through the last leg of your journey. Our selection also includes backpacks with top carry handles for an additional carrying option, and packs with belts and straps offer stability. If you know your pack may be extremely full and heavy with equipment, choose a hiking backpack with suspension systems to help evenly distribute the load.
