3 Reasons Why Military Backpacks Are Becoming Popular Among Jungle Trekkers

Unknown to many, including myself until just a few months ago, there are many different types of military backpacks. I always had the idea that all military type backpacks were huge and weighed a tonne each. These tactical backpacks have found uses outside the military because of its durability and functionality. Hunters use them and so do those who like to go on outdoor expeditions. The type of backpack used depends on the needs of the individual or the team.

These past couple of years, more and more people have started using these type backpacks for non military purposes. In this article, we will take a closer look at the cause behind this trend.


With one look anyone can tell that military backpacks or tactical backpacks are really tough. Many of the backpacks are made from 1000 Denier Cordura. Cordura is brand name for a family of fabrics which are famous for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. It is used extensively in luggage, military and performance apparel. Just how tough is 1000 denier Cordura? Well, it has an abrasion resistance equivalent to 1.3mm competition-grade leather, making it very suitable for extended outdoor use.

Those who love jungle trekking need not worry much about their backpacks sustaining tears and rips easily from sharp rocks or broken branches. You can freely go through thick forest without worrying about your backpack tearing leaving a trail of underwear and snacks in your wake.

These backpacks also come with grommets at the bottom for easy drainage for those rainy days or in case you fall into a river like yours truly.


I love tactical backpacks not only because it has tonnes of storage space but because the storage is organized in various compartments both in and outside the backpack. There are even some military backpacks are designed with a liner with two sync points so you don't have to loosen up the entire pack to get the items you need.


Most military backpacks have modular designs. What this means is that users are able to stack on or attach more stuff on with ease. Owners of small tactical backpacks can easily attach pouches if they need more storage space. Even equipment holders for water bottles, first-aid kits and even all-weather laptops can be conveniently attach to these tactical backpacks.

End Say

If you want to invest in good gear for jungle tracking, military tactical backpacks are a good option. They cost a bit more than normal backpacks but most of these tactical backpacks come with a lifetime warranty.
