Summary List Placement
If you’re headed out on a backpacking trip, a comfortable, well-designed backpack will make or break how happy you are on the adventure. You need it to be big enough to fit everything you’re bringing — hiking clothes, toiletries, a backpacking stove, food, a sleeping bag — but smartly designed so all that weight is distributed over your back and hips in a way that minimizes strain on your body. (FWIW, choosing supportive and cushioned hiking boots plays a huge role in shouldering that load, too.)
Because female bodies have wider hips and more narrow shoulders, you will definitely be happier and less achey in a women’s-specific backpack. But which model to choose is a mix of personal need and personal preference. Check out more details on what to look for when buying a backpack at the end of this guide.
