Continued Backpacking Training: Packing Ideas for Your Bag

Continuing on with backpacking training subjects, next we will move on to packing your backpack.  Packing a backpack correctly will allow you to be more coordinated and bring sufficient things. It is significant that you fit everything you have to have into your backpack, since you do not want to leave items you might need down the road. Having the appropriate backpacking training will allow you to organize your bag effectively and learn all the key aspects of how to go backpacking.

Really, there are a number of ways that you can pack your bag. A lot of people use a variety of techniques for coordination and getting the most in the pack, while trying to lessen the overall weight. I have put together a few tips that I think are the most significant in backpacking training. The decision is yours on which ideas you may use. However, by implementing these backpacking training tips, you will find that packing your bag will be a lot easier task.

Using color coded bags is a terrific method of coordination. Several backpackers use an internal frame pack because it is less difficult to deal with. But, these kinds of packs usually just have one big storage area, rather than many compartments. Because of this, it is much less difficult to "lose" something in your pack and get unorganized. The method around this is by color coding your bags. If you group objects that should be together and put them in a specific colored bag, you will know the color you are looking for when you look inside your pack.

An additional concern for many individuals is where to pack what. When packing your items, you should put things you need to find quickly in the outer pockets or at the top of the backpack. You should also avoid objects in the back of the bag that will be towards your back. This will permit you more relieve when hiking  if there is no stuffing in that part of the pack. Finally, it is wise to make sure that your bag is properly weighted, so that a single side doesn't weigh more than the other.
