A hiker must limit the load he carries to 20-25% of his weight when planning to walk for a long time. The German army estimates that up to 33% is possible, but backpacking is tiring enough and military equipment is not necessarily necessary...

The centre of gravity of the rucksack should be placed as close to the body as possible and as close as possible to the shoulders, so that it is always above the centre of gravity of the body and thus avoids pulling the wearer backwards. Here is how to store large backpacks (30 l):

- Sleeping bag, down equipment and other light equipment go at the bottom of the bag. Medium-weight equipment - such as clothing - goes just above it. Heavy equipment - tent, food, warm jacket - should be placed above the shoulders, as close to the back as possible.

- small accessories go in the flap compartment, so that they can be accessed easily and quickly. As much as possible, avoid hanging objects on the outside of the bag to avoid the phenomenon of swinging, strong wind resistance and accumulation of humidity. Also try tobalance the weight you put in the side pockets.

- also use the storage bags to optimize your storage. Be careful not to overfill them to avoid blind spots. They are also a good protection against rain (waterproof).
