Here’s How You Measure and Determine Your Pack Size.

1. Place your chin on your chest and feel the big bones protruding from the top of your spine. I will give you a second to try. Yes, that’s it. That is your C7 vertebra.
2. Feel your hip bone, this is the top of your skull. Find the position where the back is flush with the top of the top.
3. Have friends/strangers measure the distance between these two points according to the contour of the spine.

Find out how your belt size isn’t as tricky as your torso measurement. All you have to do is measure the distance around your hips. Your belt size is not your waist size. Your belt will fit snugly, and the 1/2 to 2/3 belt pad will be positioned on the squat so your hips can better support your weight. Remember that about 80% of your total hip weight should be carried by your hips. With a tightly tightened waistband, there should be 3-6 inches between the ends of the pad around the front buckle, or the average length of the mature clownfish.

Women’s specific packaging is designed to give you more choices to find the right choice. These backpacks are tailored to the shorter and often narrower torso, as well as shoulder straps and belts that are more feminine in shape. If you have a smaller frame, your backpack  should also.


Make Your Backpack as Stable and Comfortable as Humanly Possible.

The most common question about adjusting the packaging is, “How do I properly adjust all the belts?”  The trickiest part of adjusting the backpack is to distribute the right amount of weight to the belt. Your waist belt should support more than 80% of the total package weight. In order to support such a large weight, you need to direct the force of the load in the right direction.

1. Put at least 20 pounds of clothing in your backpack and bring a bunch of slack to your backpack.
2. Attach the belt to the waist, at the top of the raft. I mentioned this part before, if you have forgotten, then you will be ashamed. Tighten it.
3. Pass your arm through the shoulder strap. Tightening those tight. When your belt is fixed, your backpack no longer slides down, so it naturally tilts back. The shoulder strap holds the weight on the back. If your shoulder straps are too tight, they will start to support some of your package weights, which is bad. When you fine-tune the tightness, you will be able to feel the weight transfer of the buttocks.
4. Adjust the load lifter belt. These small shoulder straps can help your shoulder straps only touch the front of the shoulder, rather than bearing too much weight on your own. If your backpack doesn’t fit your torso, then the weightlifting strap will be useless. When your frame stretches the right amount over the shoulder, they work best, so the load lifter works as close as possible to 45 degrees.
5. Tighten all compression straps and move all backpack contents as close as possible to the back.
6. Tighten the chest straps and pull the shoulder straps together until they reach a comfortable position that does not interfere with the movement.
7. Step 7 is the easiest step because the step ends at step 6. So please take a break.

Remember, the overall goal is to let your weight fall directly to your hips. All other belts are just trying to properly position the weight to facilitate this.
