“Well, I didn’t want to carry everything in my arms.” Robert Redford’s quip when pushed on why he chose a specific backpack when he played the role of Bill Bryson in the movie A Walk In The Woods perfectly encapsulates the hiking backpack’s basic necessity. We simply cannot hike without it! Whether heading out for a Sedona Hiking Vacation or a guided backpacking trip, we all need a performing backpack to tote our gear.

And to help you pick out the ideal hiking backpacking for your next trip, our guides have taken the newest options on the market into the field for intensive testing. You’ll find their comprehensive reviews below, where we’ll detail the packs’ performance, durability, overall comfort, and so much more.
