If you are going to carry your luggage all along the Camino de Santiago, it is important that you have a good backpack as an ally. These are, broadly speaking, the keys to choose it:

  • Lightweight: the lighter the better.
  • Strong seams
  • Padded shoulder pads and lumbar reinforcement
  • Adjustable waist and chest straps
  • Can be adjusted to your height
  • Waterproof rain cover
  • Preferably with separate compartments
  • Top and side pockets
