Hiking with a pack should be a pleasant experience. There is little that surpasses the feeling of carrying with you the things you need and having the freedom to go wherever you want. This is what outdoor life is built on. However, an improperly packed backpack can quickly result in a risk of injury or quite simply make your trip less enjoyable. This is why it is important to know the basics about how to pack a backpack and how to carry it.
The requirements for a backpack that can withstand several days of trekking with a heavy load are higher than those for a backpack used for day trips. The most important characteristic of a trekking backpack is its fit, followed by special functions that you will find useful.
