5 Tips On A Backpack For Jungle Trekking

First of all never use a larger backpack than 35-40 liter/2100-2500in3. I know that some people like it but I just can’t stand the hip-belt.

  • Lightweight, but yet sturdy material
  • Detachable hip-belt
  • All stripped, no mesh and other stuff, because of thrones and tangling vines, and everything else that seems to find it’s way to your backpack.
  • Draining holes in the bottom
  • High quality carrying system
