How to Buy a Backpack

Here is some advice from my favorite online Scoutmaster, Clarke Green:

The most important thing about a Scout’s backpack is a proper fit. The second most important consideration is whether it will fit them next year, let alone three years from now. A top-of-the-line $400.00 backpack that doesn’t fit properly or grow along with a Scout is not only a waste of money, it’s going to be so uncomfortable a Scout will think twice before he goes camping or backpacking again.

Here is a link to the full article he wrote and be sure to watch the video at the bottom of the page!
