The Difference Between Backpack and Hiking Backpack

Many times customers do not know what type of backpack they need when choosing a customized backpack. It is easy to confuse light travel backpack with mountaineering bag. It’s no wonder that ordinary backpacks and mountaineering bags are both shoulders. People who do not often mix in the luggage market are prone to illusions. In fact, when it comes to real speaking, the backpacks we generally refer to are those of business or leisure. The mountaineering bag is a small branch inside, specially used for mountaineering. Below we distinguish these two backpacks from two aspects.

 The Difference Between Backpack and Hiking Backpack

1. Carrying system
The backpack carrying system is the top priority of the luggage. It is necessary to consider whether it conforms to the ergonomics and the design of perspiration and heat dissipation, as well as whether there is a carrying frame inside, and the backpack belt, abdominal belt, etc. need to consider the generous design. The waist also needs to be equipped with a lumbar pad to increase discomfort. The ordinary package is simpler. Although it is considered to carry the system, it is not so important.

2. Internal structure
Generally, the back structure of a backpack is more complicated. For example, there are many inner pockets for laptops, tablets, and some grids for signing pens. In the case of mountaineering bags, the inner structure is relatively simple because the things they carry are different, but the outer structure is more complicated because you need to hang some things.

3. Materials
Mountaineering bags generally need to consider environmental factors, such as some complex areas such as mountains and forests. Therefore, the materials used for mountaineering bags need to be thick and have high-strength waterproof and wear-resistant nylon materials with waterproof coatings, and it is best to use seamless waterproof zippers, and High-strength engineering group buckle. But ordinary bags are much simpler, mainly using simple and lightweight fabrics. Mountaineering bags are more rigorous than ordinary bags. After all, mountaineering bags need to challenge ups and downs during the journey, so they attach great importance to waterproof, wear resistance, and comfort.
