backpacking, carrying food and equipment in a pack, or doing light hikes while bringing extra clothing and stuff In the early days, backpacking was mainly used in the wilderness in order to find more difficult destinations that couldn't be reached by vehicles or on foot. It requires physical conditioning and equipment selection, along with sufficient know-how and self-how for every challenge. Additionally, when preparing an expedition, the backpacker must consider food, water, climate, and weather factors.
Pack support is mainly provided by hip belts, shoulder straps, or both. The primary types of frames are frameless, which have two fixed hanging straps, and contour, which are made out of aluminum or magnesium tubing that has been shaped to follow the shape of the wearer's back. In Kelty-frame packs, the majority of the weight is transferred to the hips via a waist strap
Modern materials have improved the ways in which backpacks are built, providing increased capacity while lowering the overall weight.
The original packs were made from canvas, which was very strong and resistant to the elements, but the weight on the shoulders increased considerably. The bags used today usually come in a lightweight, breathable nylon or similar materials, and are usually at least partially water-resistant.
