Sun and rain, steep mountain hikes and gently sloping trails: take it all on with an outdoor backpack that can see you through anything. If you're out on the trails, you can bet on your hiking backpack to be right there with you, every step of the way.

All-weather, all-terrain

If you can take it, we can take it. Our best outdoor backpacks are made to take on as hard a trail as you want to conquer. From tossing your bag over a river to sliding down a treacherous slope, each hiking backpack is made to come out the other side as whole as the day you bought it. They even stand up to the general wear and tear of the trail. Plus, when you come home from a long journey with all the dust and mud to show for it, our backpacks are easy to clean.

Features for all

Your bag needs should shape your backpack purchases, which is why variety is key. Keep your trail necessities close at hand with the Way Out Waistpack, perfect for maps, trail snacks, and your phone. If hiking isn’t your only passion and you need a bag that can do it all, check out our hiking backpacks with laptop sleeves. And if you want to celebrate with friends when you reach your campsite, a cooler bag like the Chill Pack is a must-have for drinks and snacks.

In it for the long haul

Not only are our bags made to last, they're also perfect for long haul trips. Whether it's a week's camping retreat or a hike through an extra-long mountain trail, we’ll be with you every step of the way, with enough storage for your must-haves and even extra lash points for things like sleeping bags and tents. Plus, harness systems and padded straps mean a well balanced load. Your load will be comfortable from the beginning of the day to the end.

FAQ About Outdoor and Hiking Backpacks

How to pack a backpacking pack?

  1. Lay out everything you're taking, including camping gear, food, water, clothes changes, etc, and sort by weight.
  2. The first thing to go in should be your lightest, fluffiest item: your sleeping bag. (Keep those heavy items off your lower back!)
  3. The heavier items hang out in the middle, so stick your bulky supplies in next to create a balanced center point. This is a great place for food and cooking supplies. Pad anything that might rattle around with clothes you won’t need on the trail.
  4. The lightest things, like a jacket or rain gear, go on top, while small, quick-access items work best in outside pockets. Your water bottle, snacks, and first aid kit are great pocket items.

How to pack a backpack for camping?

  1. Gather together everything you'll be taking with you and group items by weight.
  2. Put sleeping items, like your sleeping bag and pad, in the bottom to create a cushion for your lower back.
  3. In the middle, place cooking supplies, food, a bear canister, and other heavy items. This is the most balanced place, where they won't strain your lower back or shoulders. Pad empty spaces with extra clothes.
  4. On top, stick light items that you may need in a pinch, like rain gear. Depending on the weight of your tent, you may pack it on top or in the middle, or even strap it to the outside.
  5. Fill the pockets of your bag with quick grabs like trail snacks, a first aid kit, and camp shoes.
