Backpack - a large bag shaped device equipped with straps for securing it to the shoulders of the hiker, sometimes equipped with a belt to help carry the load. Sometimes they are simply refered to as a "Pack". A backpack is used by a hiker as a storage area similar to a closet, except that a hiker gets to carry it with them wherever they go. Hikers may resent their backpack and complain about the weight, but they really mean the weight of the stuff in it (see stone).
