Backpack

All that amazing equipment that helps us with climbing has one small fault. We have to carry it with us, and what’s worse, we often have to carry it uphill and downhill, almost never on the flat terrain. The main device we use to transport equipment for climbing is a backpack. Although the backpack serves us well and does nothing but carry the things, the climbers do not love him very much, at best they call him „the silencer of passion“, but often will only use the simple slang term „bitch“. Well, the sweat in the face is not bringing much love. But without any prejudice we focus on the fact that having a good backpack can relieve us from the hard work, at least a little bit. As in other situations the first step to the satisfaction is to choose adequate, appropriate type of backpack for the event. For mountaineering we need various types of backpack. An ordinary backpack is enough for us on our way to artificial climbing wall, a relatively simple basic backpack is needed for climbing trip to the rocks, a little more sophisticated backpack using better materials is needed for one day hike in the mountains, and the most sophisticated backpack we will definitely use during several days of hiking in the mountains.
