Backpacks and Sleeping Bags

A suitable backpack is very important, it should be large enough to carry all your clothes and comfortable enough to carry on your back. We have selected some of the good ones here. A dry waterproof bag may also come in useful if you are planning on doing a lot of watersports, or hanging about near water, or doing activities such as canoeing, snorkling or diving. It will keep everything dry. A sleeping bag liner can come in useful not only to protect your sleeping bag from getting dirty, but also in hotter climates when all you need is a thin cover.
