Packing your Rucksack

Packing your Rucksack


A well packed rucksack should mean that you don't lose balance, and your can find things when needed


Packing your Rucksack


Packing your rucksack should not be a random affair. Packing it well will mean you can find things, keep your kit dry, but most importantly you won't be thrown off balance by a poorly packed rucksack.


Top Tips

  • Pack heavy items close to your back. This will mean that you should not be put off balance by your rucksack pulling you backwards
  • Pack kit in dry bags, then in your rucksack. This will keep them dry
  • Pack things you know you'll need in a handy place
  • Get into a routine of where things go, so that you can find them quickly when required
