There are three main types of backpacking. You have traditional (boy scots), light back packing, and then there is ultralight backpacking. Traditional or boy scot backpacking is what a lot of people are acustomed to. In this type the person carries everything they would posible need in any sanario; they would bring pot and pans with plenty of food and not care about how much wieght in on their backs. Next is light backpacking this is in a range of 12 to 20 pounds for the pack wieght. This area is a way for backpackers to cut wieght get better gear that wieghs less and does more. With a lighter pack it is easier to travle further but the person still has room for just in case iteams. The final are of backpacking is ultra light backpacking. In this area the pack weighs less then 12 pounds. This takes a lot of knowlege and practice to be safe. With such a small weight one can travle great distances with a lot less effort, but with less wieght one is reling on the select few things they have in there pack to survive.
