Here's our big backpacks and rucksacks. That means all of our civilian and army rucksacks with internal or external frame. And of course, also backpacks can be bought as brand new or military surplus.
If you have an upcoming hiking trip which lasts at least a few days, you should look for a backpack that's at least 60 litres. For shorter, maybe one-day or overnight, trips big backpack should be enough. For example, you can fit food and clothes for one day in a 50l backpack easily. And you don't even have to be in the woods because a large bag is a convenient decision for an airplane too.
Used army rucksacks are where price meets quality. In these cases, quality means focus durability. Modern materials and ergonomics have found their way to military use as well because a soldier with a busted back doesn't fight effectively.
Big backpacks and rucksack can have large size differences and it can be hard for inexperienced hikers to choose which size matches the trip you’re planning. The size often defines a backpack's purpose of use. Sure, what equipment you need and how much depends on the individual but it’s easy to make some kind of scheme:
Sometimes you may face a situation that your trip is going to be longer than your backpack gives you capacity for. If so, you don't have to run to the nearest store and buy a new one. You can just attach some extra pouches on your backpack. Our selection of pouches is maybe unnecessarily large, and most, if not all, can be attached with PALS webbing (MOLLE), so your backpack would have to be compatible with those. Many of the military rucksacks are.
