Mz Wallace Soho Backpack-Handbags
To prepare for a camping trip you will need a bag to contain all the stuff to bring. A camping backpack is an ideal choice to keep all your items. A good backpack will help you relax during the trip. The variety of types, colors, and sizes of different types of backpacks may distract you when choosing. So you need to determine based on the characteristics of each trip as well as personal preferences to choose from. The backpack need to have enough space to contain all personal items, food for the trip, the size may vary depending on your camping trip, for how long. You should clearly identify your needs before deciding to buy and prepare for the trip. One important item that can not forget is a flashlight. You can choose a large or small one, let look to buy a good quality. Internet is a good place for you to search for information about these items. There are many websites provide materials used for camping, you should visit these websites to find the items needed for the trip. You need to determine what type of trip you want to take. After you get your plan, let start the research. Although information is available on the internet, but you can feel a confusion at first. You will find it easier if you know exactly where to look. You should refer to the experiences of your family members or friends. When the time for the trip have been identified, let choose the appropriate option for camp lighting. A portable lantern or a flashlight. And a backpack with space suitable for contains the lighting equipment.
Now, under certain conditions, I may need to add some extra items to facilitate mobility. I may bring one, all, or none of these items depending on the terrain I am about to encounter. The first item is my snowshoes. As I mentioned earlier, I do not like skis because I find they limit where I can go. I have had much greater luck with snowshoes, and my love for them has increased exponentially since I got a good pair. The snowshoes I use are the 25 inch MSR Lightning Ascent. MSR’s Ascent series are designed for backwoods travel. They have multiple straps in case some of them get damaged, and they have fairly aggressive crampons built into the frame which allow for travel over steep terrain. They also lock the shoe in very well so there is no lateral movement. Compared to regular strap bindings, this greatly reduces snowshoe overlap.
The pair of snowshoes weighs 3 lb 15 oz. They are heavy, but worth their weight in gold when you hit deep snow. The next item is my crampons. I have two different sets that I use depending on the conditions. I don’t always need or carry crampons, but when heading to elevation, or expecting icy terrain, they are a must. A few years back I dislocated my shoulder in the woods because I didn’t have my crampons. I try not to make the same mistake again. If I am expecting just light crampon use, I bring the Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro. These are what I would call approach crampons. They have relatively mild spikes, flexible frames, and universal attachments that can fit them onto just about any regular backpacking boot. They will not work well with very soft boots like PAK boots. The pair weighs 1 lb 7.9 oz. There are lighter options like microspikes, but I like the more aggressive crampons, and the anti-balling plates, which prevent snow accumulation on the bottom of the crampons.
When serious crampon work is needed, I pull out my rigid boots, and my full crampons. I use the Black Diamond Sabertooth Pro crampons. They are fully automatic and require that the boots be designed to work with such crampons. They are a general mountaineering crampon with horizontal front spikes, instead of vertical ones for ice climbing, although they perform very well in that role as well. I have been very happy with them. The pair weigh 2 lb 1 oz. Either set of crampons requires a crampon bag (at least I require it), which I made myself. And of course, when I use crampons I need my ice axe. I currently use a 60 cm Black Diamond Raven Pro as my general mountaineering axe. I have been making some modifications to it this winter, but I’ll leave that for another post. Now, this is definitely everything. The only other items are clothing that may come in and out of the pack depending on conditions.
