What to look for in a hiking backpack.
For life spent above the treeline or in other rugged landscapes, you need a technical backpack that is comfortable, flexible and reliable. No matter the conditions you face or the rigours you put it through. A hiking backpack is an investment, so you should look for one with an adaptable frame. This will allow you to have a more supportive pack for long treks, and a lighter, more flexible one for summit attempts. A snow repellent and waterproof hiking backpack is also critical. Fjällräven hiking backpacks are made with waterproof Bergshell fabric that is 100% recycled nylon, and an innovative, flat ripstop that is exceptionally abrasion resistant. You should also look for attachment points for ice axes, skis and other equipment.
