The backpack may be one of the most useful and functional tools in your camping and hiking kit. Just imagine struggling through the woods carrying your tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and other camping essentials by hand. It'd be a mess. We think that whoever invented the backpack deserves a gold star and maybe even two. In fact, we like backpacks so much that we've assembled a list here to include every pack under the sun from hiking day packs to backpacking backpacks to baby carrier packs, letting you get everything and everyone safely from point A to point B.
