Before setting out for hiking and camping, learn how to adjust the backpack straps correctly to make the journey more comfortable.

How to adjust the backpack?

1. Loosen all adjustment straps, then put on your backpack

Avoid the adjustment steps that are affected by the tightened adjustment belt.

2. Tighten the belt

Wrap the belt around the pelvis and tighten it. If the belt position and tightness are correct, the pressure of the shoulder belt on the shoulders will be greatly reduced, reducing the physical exertion when carrying heavy objects.

3. Adjust the shoulder strap

Adjusting the shoulder strap is the most important part, so the weight should be evenly divided between the shoulder and the pelvis. Otherwise, excessive tightening of the shoulder straps will cause the weight of the entire backpack to fall on the shoulders.

4. Adjust the back length that suits you better

Some backpacks can adjust the back length, which can be adjusted according to your body shape.

5. Tighten the straps on the shoulder straps

It is also called a gravity adjustment belt, which allows the backpack to be closer to the body and more comfortable to carry

6. Fasten the chest strap

The chest strap can stabilize the backpack while walking, but a tight chest strap can affect breathing. Some models can adjust the height of the chest strap, and adjust the most comfortable height according to the body type.

The weight of the backpack should not exceed 25% of the body weight! Even a well-designed backpack can hurt your back once it is overweight. The weight of children’s backpacks should be between 10-15% of their body weight.
