At Skog Å Kust, our goal is to design and manufacture uniquely simple and highly functional gear for outdoor enthusiasts. Our company is named after the Swedish words meaning “Forest, Creek, Coast.” We chose this name because our waterproof products are ideal for every environment and every type of weather. Whether you need waterproof kayak bags for your camping trip or a collapsible, mesh SCUBASåk for an ocean adventure, our waterproof bags are ideal for anyone who loves to travel the world.
Our Forest Collection presents our best items for the mountains and forest. These camping backpacks and accessories are a great fit for anyone who travels inside or outside of the urban jungle.
Are You Planning Your Next Hiking or Camping Trip?
Whether you are planning a day trip or a months-long hike on the Appalachian Trail, you need a bag that you can depend on. Here are a few factors to consider when looking for a great camping backpack:
When you’re out on the trail, a drizzle shouldn’t slow your stride or ruin your gear. That’s why we make our products completely weatherproof. You should be able to pour a cup of water over any reliable camping pack without the insides getting wet, and the material should dry quickly enough to avoid mustiness.
The Right Size
How much will you be taking, and how much will you leave behind? The size of your backpack will depend on the length of your trip, the activities you have planned, and the weather you’re expecting. Your trip might need a rugged 60-liter DuffelSåk or a petite 5-liter LiteSåk.
Padded straps will distribute weight more evenly across your body to ease the pressure on your shoulders and cause less strain on your lower back. Our BackSåk has a padded back and cushioned, adjustable shoulder straps to ensure your comfort.
External Attachments and Water Bottle Storage
A great bag has loops, D-rings, or bungees that allow you to lash additional gear onto your pack. These extra attachments are also useful for carrying water bottles. Another helpful feature is compression straps, which let you cinch your pack down smaller when it isn’t full.
Extra Compartments for Easy Access and Organization
You don’t want to unpack your entire bag every time you need to grab your driver’s license or a stick of gum. That’s why a good camping backpack has pockets where you can store important items for easy access. Additional waterproof compartments, like the removable interior dry bag in our GymSåk, are also great for keeping wet and dry items separate.
