The landscapes, fresh air, and soothing sounds on a hike can do wonders for us simply by taking the time to soak them in, whether it is on the way to a new epic location, or just a stroll through your familiar neighborhood trails.
Depending on the type of adventure you are planning, the gear you bring can make all the difference. Choosing the right backpack for your hike can set you up for success, and make sure that you maximize the experience.
