It is essential to know how to pack your camping backpack correctly before starting a hike. The fit of the pack will vary depending on the clothes you wear, and even the strap adjustment, so it is essential to find the right balance to be as comfortable as possible.
Knowing how to pack your backpack is very important for camping and hiking; otherwise the backpack may lose balance and feel heavier than usual. Packing it well can greatly reduce the burden on your body! We have some simple sharing of packaging experiences for your reference:
1. Medium gear and frequently used items - e.g sunglasses, headlamp, rain coat, army knife
2. Heaviest gear - e.g. tent, food, water, fuel
3. Lightest gear - e.g. towel and cloth for changing
4. Light gear - e.g. sleeping bag, sleep mat
Knowing how to pack your backpack is only step one for camping. Next, you will need to adjust your backpack straps. Follow the step-by-step guide to make sure the backpack fits your body perfectly.
Don't forget, never carry more than 25% of your weight!
Children should only carry 10 to 15% of their weight.
