Why Do I Need a Backpack for Metal Detecting?

Many metal detectorists have already experienced the value of having a backpack on them while they are treasure hunting. For those who haven’t, there are some compelling reasons. The best reason is it gives you the capacity to carry all kinds of stuff. You can put your large or small finds in there, attach your holster for your pinpointer to it, put your digger in it, carry all of your metal detector accessories, and even carry extra search coils and headphones in there. There are no limits as to what you can do with your daypack. Relic hunters hunting in remote areas especially love backpacks, as it would take too long to get to their vehicle. Just think of all the gear you could carry in one of these, and then you will see why you need one.

What to Look for in a Metal Detector Backpack

While many backpacks may seem like any other backpack, there are some important features to pay attention to. First off, you may want a backpack that has a zipper that closes a small pouch, so that way any small finds or gear do not fall out. Another feature you may want is a water resistant material that makes up the bag. You probably don’t want to have a bunch of wet gear if it can be prevented. One often overlooked feature of a backpack for treasure hunting is finding one with comfortable shoulder straps. If you do not have a comfortable carry bag, you are not going to be able to metal detect with it for as long as you like. It will cause more soreness and pain than anything. That is why it is important to pay attention to finding comfortable shoulder straps. All of the backpacks offered by us here at Kellyco are built to last and will be both comfortable and ergonomic, providing you with the capability to hunt all day and not get tired.

What Is the Best Metal Detector Backpack?

It is impossible to narrow down backpacks designed for metal detecting to which ones are the best. Each pack offered by Kellyco provides excellent value and usability for different situations and preferences. Instead, metal detector backpacks will be covered in more detail.

While Garrett is primarily known for their excellent line of Garrett metal detectors, they also produce three excellent options for detector bags. The Garrett All-Purpose Backpack can hold a disassembled metal detector, such as the Garrett ACE. It features adjustable shoulder straps, an internal search coil pouch, and a zippered pouch for finds, in addition to side pockets for beverages. Garrett also offers the Garrett Sport Daypack. This large daypack offers many pockets and compartments, both with zippers and dividers. This daypack is large and built to last, providing the perfect all-day storage solution.

White’s metal detectors produce two great options for detectorists looking for backpacks. Their Signature Series Roll Top Backpack is built with high-quality in every feature. The zippers and pouches, as well as the water-resistant material are built to haul tons of gear, while remaining comfortable. To add comfort, White’s added a chest strap to help bear the load better. The shoulder straps and back are padded as well. For a less expensive option, White’s has their Deluxe Backpack. This backpack, while not as fancy as the first, is still of excellent quality. It has two large pockets, adjustable straps, and a padded back, providing everything a serious treasure hunter could want out of a backpack.
