Buying the Best Backpack: Types of Backpacks

There a several main types of backpacks available, each intended for different purposes. These range from small daypacks for carrying gear on a short hike or hunting trip as well as large internal or external frame backpacks for longer backpacking trips. Finding the right size and type of backpack is important to ensure that you can comfortably carry all of the necessary gear required for you outdoor excursion.

At United Sportsmen's Store, we sell a complete selection of backpacks in all shapes and sizes. These backpacks, daypacks, and waistpacks come from leading outdoor manufacturers including Alps Mountaineering, Chinook, Stansport, SwissGear, and NCStar. With our discount backpacks and accessories, you are sure to find the backpack that fits your needs for any outdoor trip as well as for everyday use.

Daypacks & Small Backpacks

Daypacks are small to medium sized backpacks and bags that are ideal for day hikes, hunts, and other outdoor trips. These packs are usually large enough to carry things like extra layers of clothing, snacks, flashlights, and survival kits without being too large or bulky. Daypacks and backpacks can include any of a number of features such as:

  • Multiple pockets and compartments for organizing gear
  • Narrow profiles and compression bungees in order to reduce bulkiness and prevent gear from bouncing around
  • Padding for improved comfort
  • Integrated hydration systems or hydration system compatibility
  • Tough, water resistant materials and zippers

Backpacking Backpacks

Backpacking backpacks are either internal frame and external frame bags that are large enough to hold and organize enough gear for a camping, hunting, or hiking trip that may be several days or weeks long. These packs use an integrated frame system to offer support for the backpack and transfer the weight of the bag to the hips, allowing individuals to carry a significant amount of gear easily. When buying a backpack for backpacking, you must be sure to buy a bag that is not only appropriately sized for the amount of gear that you will need to carry, but that is also the right size for your body type and size.


Waistpacks are an alternative to daypacks or backpacks when you only have a small amount of gear to carry. These are often used on short hiking trips and when hunting. Waistpacks typically attach to a belt so they can be worn around the waist. These are an ideal solution for carrying smaller gear and keeping it close at hand.
