Imagine, you are enjoying your trip to the fullest and in a mid way your gear gets into pieces..! Relax, it was just an imagination. So here, you need to check out the conditions at the place you are to visit and accordingly you need to buy something strong enough to resist the wear and tear during the trip.
#3. Waterproof ?
Is your gear waterproof.? Yes.? Have you tested it under the water? If no, you are not sure yours is waterproof. A waterproof backpack means, you can put your laptop or other gears into your backpack and can dive deep into the sea but yes, without destroying your laptop.!!
Waterproof laptop backpack are not too stylish in general, as they are made up of different kinds of fabric materials to make it waterproof.

This way, selecting a gear for your trip is a bit tricky task but again with this guide, it would be now easy for you to pick up the best suitable gear for yourselves. Once you select a perfect gear, believe me, more than 80% of your worries are gone and you are all set for your backpacking trip.
