Trekking Bags For Men

Trekking is a long vigorous walk to offbeat places via less travelled routes on mountainous terrain. It might be a single day activity or involves a night camping with multiple day treks to reach a specific destination like a hilltop. The purpose is to enjoy undisturbed nature, learn to survive with minimum, delve into physical activity and escape from sedentary urban lifestyles.

 

For those who love a touch of freshness, adventure, rarity, exploration, creative photography, direct interpersonal interactions, trekking can never be off the list. One important requirement for a hiker is to be self-sufficient with his supplies because nobody carries excess resources to share. Trekking is not done in well-facilitated places. It is mandatory for hikers to carry all their essential needs. Continuous walking in itself will be tiresome. Add weight to the back and it becomes laborious. Add disorganised packing, it becomes rigorous. What comes to the rescue is a well sorted out, ergonomically designed trekking bag that makes the necessity of an assistant to take care of your needs redundant.

 

Trekking bag is a well-compartmentalised bag with an elaborated vertical dimension to distribute weight equally along the build of the human body. Two shoulder straps and a hip belt hold the bag in place and ensures weight balance of the body even while moving on uneven, sloped surfaces. Its ergonomic design and thick sponge layer reduces the burden on the carrier and provides good protection against muscle sores due to weight. They come in varying capacities from 10 litres to 75 litres, which you can pick based on your duration of trekking. A 45-litre bag must suffice a 2 day-long trek where u start early in the morning, night halt at a pre-arranged accommodation and return by next evening.

 

The Features Of A Trekking Bag

 

While picking a trekking bag, make sure it has the following features.

  1. Light and strong material - Trek involves walking in rough, unrefined trails where encounters with outgrown wood barks, thorny plants are common. One cannot afford holes in the bags that keep dropping packed things all along the pathway.  Condura, polyester, canvas leather, ripstop nylon are few good fabrics that are water resistant, abrasion-free, strong and opaque. Ripstop is a specially woven nylon in a crosshatch pattern that makes it more resistant to tears when compared to other materials. However, one must note that they can only resist water to an extent and are not completely waterproof. Lightweight of the bag must be a non- negotiable choice.
  2. Belt straps - Chest belt fixes and hip belts reduce the strain on shoulders and avoid wobbling of the heavy bag, thereby ensuring stability to the hiker. Shoulder straps must be thickly padded for a smooth, bruise-free carriage.
  3. Organized space - Huge vertical space can eat up a lot of time in digging for things. Specified pockets for different things like a bottle pouch, a small zip on the top to place handy tools like swissknife, torch, batteries, an inside pocket to tuck in sleeping mats, foldable tents, spray cans etc are necessary.
  4. Arm Free Movement - Do not hesitate to try on the bags to check if they allow free arm movement.

Trekking bags will be exposed to sun, dust and dirt. Washable material and non fading colours will be a good choice. If you are venturing into wild areas, pick military patterned bags and avoid bags with bright hues that can catch attention of wild beings. Pick the right capacity. Do not carry too big bags for a short trek. The purpose of trekking bag is to make it a single package for travelling, so don’t pick a smaller one with an idea of taking another small bag. That only adds up to your level of discomfort. Limeroad can make you trek ready with its wide collection of trekking bags. Be clear of your needs and pick the right bag that can make a good travel partner.

Can I travel in the rain wearing trekking bags?
All bags are made of water-resistant materials that can resist light rains. Although the bag’s design is well packed to prevent vertical rainwater from entering the interiors, An inclined rain or loose strapping can provide a gateway for water to enter inside. The lower width to height ratio offers a lesser surface area of the bag in direct perpendicular contact with the raindrops. In short, you can use these bags in rain but avoid moving in heavy rains as it might also make the floor slippery, thereby increasing the probability of slippage.

Can I use the same bag for a trek on snow-covered mountains and tropical rainforests?
Not just the temperature but the nature of surroundings differ in both the scenarios. Snow hiking does not encounter many outgrown trees like in the tropics. Tropical trekking does not necessarily need extra warm wear. Snow trekking might need more materials and hence more space. When it comes to material, the trekking bags made of ripstop nylon or polyester are all weather bags, that you can use anywhere. Bags made of canvas and leather are not the right choices for snow hiking.
