If you are planning a camping trip for the first time, be sure to listen carefully to the advice of seasoned travelers, especially those that relate to the correct packing of equipment and collection of travel backpack.

Today we'll show you how to correctly pack a backpack so all necessary things has always been during the campaign at hand, because if the wrong pack for a hike, travel trip can be completely ruined.

Every traveler traveling to Hiking can pack your backpack in different ways, based on their preferences, needs and features of the upcoming transition. Our recommendations are based on General rules of packaging equipment, will help you understand the sorting and arrangement of things in a backpack, to then, from my own experience, to choose the optimum scheme for packing a Hiking backpack.

How to collect travel backpack Hiking:

Camping Mat can be Packed in two ways:

  1. Rolling backpack wide pipe — it will keep the shape of the bag, will protect other things from getting wet and a little will protect the property from jolts and bumps. The disadvantages of this method of packaging are typically blocking the lower entrance to the backpack and a few irrational use of available interior space.
  2. The Mat can be clipped on the outside — it's not always convenient, but allows you to get to it quickly and deploy during a halt that will allow you to rest more comfortably.

Proper packaging of heavy items and equipment (tent, food, etc.) involves placing them as close as possible to the lumbar area and back portion of the backpack. Also in the bottom, to the bottom, usually send a sleeping bag and part of the spare clothes.

A change of clothes, shoes and personal hygiene products are recommended to be placed in high, hard to reach part of my backpack, because these things occupy a lot of space, but almost no demand during the transition.

Clothes and gear that is likely to need on the road (fleece hoody, jacket, windstopper), need to pack closer to the lower valve travel backpack — so it will always be at hand.

Under flap top travel backpack lay utensils, portable gas burner, pot and products that you plan to use during the day.

First aid kit, flashlight, camping knife, sunglasses and other small things that you frequently use, lay the outer pocket of a backpack. Glasses must be Packed in a durable case, because they can be easily squashed during the campaign.

On all models of Hiking backpacks there's always a lot of mounts, but don't be tempted to hang everything on them. Such additional “jewelry” often clinging to twigs and stones during transport, in the end, often broken or lost. Especially not recommended to be hung on the outside that can be damaged from dust and moisture.

the Please note: heavy and sharp metal objects (canned food, a kerosene stove, saw, axe, etc.) cannot be put on the bottom of my backpack, since they can damage it.

How to wear the backpack:

Today, it is possible to choose a variety of models of tourist backpacks, so pick one that will be really convenient for you on the volume, size, method of attachment and various additional functions, is not difficult.

Besides, all modern backpacks have similar construction: vertical pipe with an upper and lower entrance. In some models the Central compartment can be partitioned by a partition into two sections. The upper entrance to the backpack closes with a wide flap, which has multiple pockets.

All models are equipped with comfortable and very flexible mounting system, making the location of the duffel bag and fit to the back can be easily and very precisely adjust its shape.

Adjustment of harnesses tourist backpack should be carried out carefully and thoroughly. We cannot allow it too tightly to the back and squeezed, but it should not be sagging — it will only increase the strain on the back, which you will tire quickly. Remember that properly fixed waist belt of a backpack takes up to 60% of the weight load from the back to the pelvis and thigh muscles.

Chest strap should only be used while overcoming obstacles due to slopes or sudden movements backpack can slide under its own weight. During normal walking belt and shoulder straps provide enough support, and breast fasteners will only embarrass and impede breathing.
