Choose backpacks based on capacity

Backpacks are large bags that must be prepared for the first time to carry logistics. Backpack capacity is so diverse and the basis for the best decisions to choose is the type of expedition and the length of the trip. These logistics carriers have very varied capacities, ranging from 16 liters to 105 liters.

Each backpack also has a different design to adjust capacity and usage including the number of frames, materials used, arrangement of compartments, closing systems, locking methods, and others.

Dlium Choose backpacks based on capacity

Capacity of 16-35 liters for rock climbing

This small capacity backpack is commonly referred to as a daypack commonly used by rock climbers to carry equipment. Light logistics will not make it difficult for you to do climbing tasks.

Capacity of 35-50 liters for 2 days of hiking

Hiking backpacks with a capacity of 35-50 liters are considered sufficient in hiking or climbing mountains to accommodate clothing, food and drinking water in less than two days' journey.

A 35 liter capacity bag is more suitable if you stay in mountain hut compared to a tent. If you do hiking in the rainy season you should use a 50 liter capacity to more accommodate equipment including additional clothing.

Capacity of 50-80 liters for 3-5 days of hiking

Hiking backpacks for trips of 3 to 5 days must accommodate other additional equipment including tents, mattresses, cooking utensils, sleeping bags, flysheets, and medicines that may have a total weight of 10-20 kilograms.

Basic equipment such as clothes, food and drinking water is also more than hiking for 2 days. If you are hiking in the rainy season you should use an 80 liter capacity to accommodate additional equipment including clothing, food and additional fuel.

Capacity of 80-105 liters for long expeditions and alpine climbing

The capacity of 80-100 liters must be prepared for long-term trips or alpine expeditions. Long-term expeditions include the opening of new forest lanes for forest climbing or exploration that have never been done.

You must bring a sleeping bag cover, tent cover, headlamp, backup battery, and various other things if needed in an emergency situation. Bags with a capacity of more than 105 liters are hard to find, but are generally widely used for military operations.
