Buy at Discount Hiking Backpack Stores
In order to get the most out of a discount hiking backpack
store, a hiker needs to know what types of backpacks are on the
market and what type of backpacks he needs in order to decide
what backpacks would be the best deal at a discount hiking
backpack store. The more expensive backpacks are the camping
backpacks which are mid-weight and also the expedition packs.
In addition, waterproof packs are usually more expensive than
regular packs, so finding these at a discount hiking backpack
store would be a great find, although less expensive packs,
like kids hiking backpacks can also be found there.
The most common waterproof hiking backpacks that can be
found at discount hiking backpack stores are class one packs
which are actually only water resistant. Class one packs can
withstand water as long as it is only sprinkles on the pack
from a light rain or splashes from a river or other water
The next level of waterproof hiking backpacks that are
usually more expensive as well are the class two packs, which
would be a great find at a discount hiking backpack store. This
type of pack is able to withstand a heavy flow of water to the
top of the pack, like from heavy rain or a light waterfall.
This type of pack cannot withstand submersion, however,
although it can usually handle a brief dunk in the water.
Getting into the more expensive of the waterproof packs, but
also the most useful for those who are the more adventurous
backpackers, crossing rivers and streams with their packs, the
class three waterproof hiking backpacks can float across these
waters without allowing any water into the backpack. They can
be quite pricey and finding one at a discount hiking backpack
store during the off season, such as the wintertime, is one of
the better times to look for one.
The next level of waterproof backpack is a class four, which
is often used by hikers who also snorkel and by white water
raft enthusiasts. These are costly because they can handle
being submerged up to three feet under the water without
damage, so they can be worn in the water and can also survive a
white water raft tipping over, keeping all supplies dry inside
of it. It is difficult to find these at a discount hiking
backpack store because they are a more specialized pack that is
not used by as many hikers and campers. Class five packs are
even rarer, which can go up to twelve feet under the water,
making them great packs for search and rescue teams.
