Ensure a comfortable fit prior to embarking on a hike. A well-adjusted backpack should feel like a seamless extension of your body. Conversely, a poorly fitted backpack can increase the risk of injury and feel as burdensome as a sack of bricks.
This approach will facilitate achieving a comfortable fit. Remember to evenly distribute the load prior to setting off on your trails! A well-adjusted backpack not only enhances comfort but also conserves energy and helps prevent a range of potential injuries.
Some bags have a back panel that can be adjusted to fit to the length of your back.
