5 Backpacking Gear Myths Demystified

If you’re a first time backpacker, you tend to be more meticulous about everything.

That’s great. That means you only want the best experience outdoors. Just make sure you don’t fall for these backpacking gear myths!


  1. You need a pack rain cover

Some backpackers will tell you that a backpack rain cover is something you need. However, it’s an expensive and unnecessary thing to have. The trick is to line the inside of your pack with a trash compactor bag. It’s a far more effective hack.

  1. You must wear hiking boots for backpacking

Most would argue that you need hiking boots to make your backpacking trip a comfortable one but not really. All you need are a trusty pair of well-fitting running shoes. They feel a lot cooler, lighter and more comfortable.

  1. You’ll sleep better naked under a sleeping bag

This is one myth that needs to go away permanently. They’d tell you to sleep naked under the bag. However, it’s simple math that the more clothes you have on you, the more warmth your body can generate.

  1. You can dump your biodegradable soap in the waters

A big no no. No matter what kind of soap or shampoo you’re using, it’s unacceptable to dump them into streams and rivers. You’re not just damaging aquatic life. You’re also compromising those who want to drink water from natural resources.

  1. You don’t have to bring a compass or a map

Many of today’s backpackers forego maps and compasses altogether for their GPS devices. Sure, they’re reliable but only to a certain extent. They will run out of batteries. However, compasses and maps will be there to help you all the way. Being stuck in the backcountry isn’t exactly the way you want your first trip to go, right?
