Camping is one of the best outdoor activities that you can take part in. However, camping is only enjoyable if you are comfortable. While you may think of outdoor activities as a way to leave the comforts of your own home, a little bit of comfort goes a long way especially where camping is concerned.

Choosing the right backpack is essential to having a great tip and one of the best ways of purchasing one is through the internet. While there a number of online markets where you can easily get a great, inexpensive backpack such as Amazon and eBay, not all backpacks listed are the best quality.

Here are some tips to ensure that regardless of where you get your backpack, you get the best available.

If you are going to search online for a backpack, you need to know your measurements. It is a common misconception that one’s height is an important measurement to have when searching for the right backpack but this isn’t the case.

Key measurements are your torso length and your hip size. You can measure your torso through the use of a tape measure. Have a friend carefully measure the length of torso. Start from the top of your neck, down the length of your back to the top of your hips. Using this measurement, you can accurately determine the size of bag that’s right for you since backpack sizes are approximated using this measurement.

Purchasing backpacks over the internet doesn’t really give one any measure of the actual quality of the backpack. As such, it is always best to use certified online markets such as Amazon and eBay which ensure that you get the quality you deserve.

Even so, be sure to check the seller’s reviews to see whether or not previous customers found the backpacks they purchased worth the cost. In this way, you easily avoid individuals trying to sell you counterfeit backpacks.

Alternatively, you could always choose reliable brand names in the market and purchase directly from their online stores. An added safety measure would be to choose backpacks that come with warranties as these offer a better value for money. As such, always be sure to go with backpack manufacturers that offer warranties on their backpacks.
