Backpacking Gear for Beginners: Music

This post is part of the Backpacking Gear for Beginners course.

Why do you need a music player? 

You don’t. If you like music and it’s going to be a long trip then you can bring some on an iPod or phone with you. I usually have my phone with me so I download a bit for use offline. 

Battery life 

You probably already have a music player you like so there won’t be much for tips here. I do want to bring up battery life of whatever you are using. If you need your phone for satellite communication or navigation, don’t blow all your battery listening to music.
