Got Your Back Giveaway
Enter daily for a chance to win one of three backpacks from Deuter, Osprey, and Columbia.

You invest plenty of "gear" dollars into the best boots, a quick-fire stove, a lightweight tent, and more. But what about the essential item that helps you tote supplies from campsite to campsite—a backpack? A lightweight, comfortable, and roomy pack can help take you anywhere. But, like most gear, well-made packs aren't cheap.

We've got your back. This month, we're giving away three top-of-the-line backpacks built for Scouting adventures in the GOT YOUR BACK GIVEAWAY. Three randomly selected readers will receive one of these prize packages below:

Grand Prize: A Deuter AIRCONTACT backpack ($270), called a "heavyweight hauler." This bag will make your next long-distance trek a breeze—well, the packing part anyway! The air-contact design keeps fresh air flowing between your back and the backpack, allowing you to stay cool while on the move. Plus, we're also including a MSR Pocket Rocket stove ($40), a Tilley Outback Hat ($80), and a SnowPeak "Snow Miner" Headlamp ($60)—all excellent essentials for your outdoor activities.

Second-Place Prize: An Osprey Atmos backpack ($240), known for its high-quality design and comfort. Also a great long-distance pack, this bag boasts easy-to-adjust shoulder and hip straps that are built for an extra comfortable hike. 

Third-Place Prize: A Columbia SilverRidge Weekender backpack ($120)—an excellent choice for a day hike. This pack is extremely lightweight, and it offers a built-in rainfly for those sneaky summer rain showers.

The GOT YOUR BACK GIVEAWAY will help three lucky readers be prepared for summer and fall Scouting treks with one of three durable backpacks.
