|My Teton Sports Hiker3700 Backpack at the Top of Yosemite Point, Yosemite National Park 2015|
I grew up in a backpack. I have photos of me and my fuzzy, blond, 2-year-old hair getting carted through the aspen-tree lined trails of Steamboat, Colorado, by my adventurous dad and his cool outdoorsy friends.
Here's a list of the 6 types of backpacks for every kind of adventure:
|Sea to Summit ultra light pack overlooking the Snake River, Idaho, the Deepest Canyon in North America 2014|
1 - The Super Lightweight
|Another shot of the Teton Hiker3700 multi-day pack. Hells Canyon Wilderness, Idaho 2014|
3 - The Overnighter
This particular pack is LIGHT. I love it, and have enjoyed testing it out on all sorts of terrain from endless switchbacks to long-distance rolling trails.
Camelback used to make a mini-reservoir pack that was perfect for little ones, but looks like they've discontinued it. Take a look at companies like Osprey to get starter packs age 5+.

How many favorite packs do you have in your life these days?
