~ In-game description

It is used as an external and separate means of storing items from the player's main inventory and therefore enables the player able to carry more items. The Hiking Backpack is one of the more common backpacks you will find in DayZ. It has 42 carrying slots and is available in blue, green, orange and violet. Green is the most preferable because it is better camouflaged in woodland areas.



  • Previous to Beta, the Hiking Backpack was called the Taloon Backpack.
  • The Hiking Backpack is based on the Osprey Talon 22 Pack, manufactured between 2012 and 2016, and its respective available colours of Avatar Blue, Shamrock Green, Flame Orange, and Iris Purple.
