Keep heavier objects close to your back, balance the backpack left and right, with the center of gravity between your shoulders.
Put large and sharp items first, such as cookware, stove top, etc., fill both sides with soft items, such as towels, sleeping bags, clothing, etc., to ensure that every space is used;
Do not lean against hard objects close to the back, otherwise it will easily hit the back and affect comfort;
Put commonly used items on the backpack, such as headlights, maps, hats, towels, compasses, Swiss knives, etc., and it is best to pack them separately to avoid the situation that a large number of small things fall out when the bag is opened.
Traveling on ordinary mountain roads, you can put heavier items on the upper layer of the main compartment of the backpack, which helps to concentrate the strength on the hips, which is the part of the body that can bear the heavier burden.
If you are walking on a rugged and difficult expedition road, you should put heavier items in the middle of the main compartment of the backpack, so that the weight can be distributed to the shoulders and back, so that the center of gravity is lowered and it is easier to maintain balance.
Tighten all compression straps to limit the sliding of the equipment in the backpack to prevent the center of gravity of the backpack from moving and causing people to lose their balance.
The items tied to the backpack should be as few as possible, otherwise it will affect the balance when traveling.
