1, backpack selection:
If you have the ability, depending on the content and nature of the mountaineering activities, use a backpack of appropriate capacity. For example, if you have 2 to 3 days of activity plus camping, the backpack capacity is about 45-65L. If it is 4-7 days, you will need 65-80L. Of course, depending on the items carried by each person, the purpose is to avoid the use of inappropriate backpack capacity;
(1) Big bag small use: The bag has too few items, and the walking is easy to shake and affects the walking emotion. Heavy ones have difficulty crossing the difficult route and are in danger.
(2) The big bag is too big: the backpack is too small, in addition to disturbing yourself, it also causes the problem of uneven distribution of the whole family. In addition, the backpack is too small, so that the extra items must be externally attached to the backpack. This is very dangerous. At times, there is often a risk of falling due to a small branch or protruding rock. In addition; crossing the bush forest, arrow bamboo forest will hinder your passage.
So you can prepare 25L, 45L, 70-80L (girls 55-70L) three different capacity backpacks 25L - attacking the top; do not need to emphasize the carrying and belt system, but the shoulder strap is firm, the waterproof and durable of the fabric For consideration. Because the topping is often able to bring as much as possible, crowded, and then more than half of the capacity of the backpack lacks a waterproof backpack, so waterproof is very important, and the principle of being able to reduce the convenience of carrying, some small backpacks can not be folded and not convenient to carry . 45L---2-3 days; this capacity is less pleasing, most students with insufficient funds jump directly to the 60-80L large backpack, but in fact this capacity is more appropriate during the 3-day trip. 70-80L - long-distance vertical walk; this is the basic equipment for mountaineering members, with it! All kinds of activities can keep up, the principle of purchase will refer to the previous article "Backpack Experience".
2, weight distribution:
According to the itinerary record, if there are more mountain trails on the same day, for example, the wide slope of the grass slope, the forest road that follows the contour line, at this time, the weight of the backpack can be raised to the inside, so that the center of gravity falls on the buttocks. It is easier to put things with heavy weights and small objects closer to the back, but the disadvantage is that the stability is poor when walking at high center of gravity; vice versa! If you need to cross the cliff, climb the rock, and walk the thin edge on the day... lower the center of gravity, but still try to be close to the back, so as not to pull the center of gravity outward, causing the burden on the shoulder. Regardless of which of the above methods is adopted; the waterproofing of the sleeping bag is the same as the principle of the following; when the backpack is put down, there is a buffer; secondly, the sleeping bag is the item that will be taken out of the camp camp, and it is given. Press it at the bottom!
3, waterproof treatment:
No matter how waterproof the backpack is, most people will add a plastic bag first when packing up the mountain. The method is to first zip the sleeping bag at the bottom of the backpack, and the selected plastic bag is preferably a large garbage bag, so that one person can stand in and squat under the cover, because when you need emergency sleeping, This bag may be your life bag (to be retired). I remember when I was a senior in the second team, the team member Ruize helped us find a bag that was very tough and originally loaded. It was a good thing! This bag will put a person up and then it will not break. Interested people can find it. At the time, we had one person to go, and it is still very useful. After putting it on, pack the sleeping bag in a waterproof bag and start to load it. My practice is to sleep in a sleeping bag, a sleeping mat, a set of spare clothes, and a feather coat or feather vest that can be worn at the camp. ) Squeeze on both sides, let the sleeping bag and sleeping pad be solid at the bottom, then roll the plastic bag and plug it to both sides. The above is the first action I don't care about; let's look at the activity and put other items, wait for all the guys. Have a backpack, don't forget the waterproof jacket with a big backpack, don't forget to take it.
