Carrying Tip#2

Choose a pack with…

Fit your backpack.

Choose a pack with two padded straps and a chest or waist belt to provide adequate support. Tighten the straps so the pack fits against your upper back and the waist belt is snugly fastened around your hips. Place heavier items in the center and close to your back.
