Packing Advice: To optimize your backpack’s weight distribution and ease of access:

  • Measure and pack the right amount of food and equipment in advance.
  • Separate your food from clothing and equipment, placing it in a separate packet or lightweight bag within your backpack.
  • Pack as much as possible inside your backpack, securing items like the mat, slops, and water bottles on the outside.
  • Conduct a practice pack and carry beforehand to test the setup and adjust the straps for balance.
