What's the single most important piece of Camping gear?
The single most important piece of your Camping gear is, without a doubt, your Backpack since it is the basis for carrying all of the other items that you will be taking into the backcountry. There is no “one size fits all” answer. The challenge in finding the right backpack is balancing the size of the pack with your ability to carry it (with regards to both weight and balance) in the environment that you plan to travel in. Some packs work great for people on flat terrain, but are too top heavy or awkward balance in the mountains. Other packs feel great in the store, but when loaded to their complete capacity are too heavy for the planned travel distance.
So when purchasing a backpack think about the terrain, weather, travel distance and type of gear that you will be carrying and then balance those considerations as optimally as possible.
