Hiking back pack

I’m just wondering if a hiking back pack is ok to use for my clothes and other equipment, tent It has metal framing in it for support but most of it is all cloth Just want to make sure it’s ok to use for a duffle bag.

It’s not the most common type of bag I’ve seen come off the baggage truck, but you’ll be fine. The major things are to (a) be under 50 pounds, (b) have only one bag, and (b) have everything well-secured to that one bag so nothing is at risk of falling off or getting tangled with other gear. The staff that unloads the truck are good at moving a lot of bags quickly, so don’t be surprised if it shows some wear by the end of the week.

Excellent choice. It will allow you to ride to your campsite instead of duck-walking your bike and bag.
