What’s the best way to pack?
Should heavy items go on the top, or at the bottom? Actually, neither! You should try to pack heavy items along the back side of your backpack, so the centre of gravity stays as close to your body as possible.
Next, pad the bottom of your bag with light, bulky items such as blankets, sleeping bags, and extra jackets. When packing the remaining items, make sure to balance the load evenly on the right and left sides.
Lastly, pack items that you might need to access quickly on top.
