Bringing enough food, sun lotion, and even entertainment, can really make or break your expedition or day out. Your camping or travel gear really makes the most difference though, and can save you from some tough situations, even if that just a little extra comfort. Here is some advice about getting some gear in preparation for your adventure, and some advice about what to look out for.

Generally speaking you will have three backpack sizes: day trips, weekend trip from 3 to 4 days, and longer expeditions.

Backpacks also come with lots of features, pockets, places to put sleeping bags, and attachments. While these features can be very useful, will you need them for the adventure you're planning on undertaking?

There are also various ways different brands go about keeping water out. With cheaper brands, your feet might run the risk of getting warm, and lack of ventilation could cause problems. Having said that, there are plenty of affordable brands which would suit your needs and will support you throughout your adventures.
