Expedition/Travel Backpacks

Ideal for extended trips and adventures

If you’re heading out for a long, extended backpacking trip or climbing expedition you will probably need a larger backpack to haul all of your gear. And the reason for this is because you’ll probably have more gear to haul if you’re going on a trip that lasts several days.
