Outdoor backpacks have come a long way. Gone are the days of ultra heavy-sacks that make it difficult to pack your essentials. Today, function rules, and that means packs designed with the modern hiker's needs in mind. Compartments, zippers and security make these packs the best on the market. Shop well-known brands like The North Face', High Sierra', Mountainsmith' and Field & Stream's own house brand of packs that give big brands a run for their money. We're talking high- performance gear that will never let you down on the trail. Seasoned hikers and newbies alike need plenty of room for their gear and should pack wisely for a hike of any size. These packs allow you to do that in style.

The best way to pack outdoor backpacks or frame backpacks is to start with the heaviest items at the bottom of the pack. This may include additional shoes, a sleeping mat or travel yoga mat and a blanket. Even with a frame backpack, which evenly distributes weight for a more comfortable hike, the heaviest items should be packed first. Life on the trail may mean limited light or a need for quick access. For these reasons, make sure you have easy access to items like a knife, toothbrush, hand wipes or sanitizer and a rag. These items can go in smaller zipped compartments at the top or top sides of the bag.
