    Pack the camping bag right

    As adventurous as it may sound, camping requires a lot of calculative measures to ensure that you do not land up without an essential in the middle of the forest or barren land. Packing a backpack is an important factor, which essentially needs a checklist to ensure that everything that is required has been packed.

    Here are some camping bag packing tips that can help you carry maximum stuff without overburdening yourself.

    Packing a trailer bag can be broken down into three zones, plus peripheral storage. This may include:

    Bottom zone: This should hold the bulky gear and items that are not needed until the cramping starts. These also help in balancing the bag when seated for rest. The items include a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, long underwear that you plan to sleep in, camp shoes or down booties.

    Top zone: It is important to pack bulkier essentials, which you might need on the trail.

    Core zone: It is good for packing denser or heavier items. These would include food stash, entrees not snacks, cooking kits, stove, water reservoir, and other bulky items.

    Tool loops and lash-on points: This portion of the bag is good or carrying oversized or long items. Some of the most common gear to strap on the outside include trekking poles, tent poles, large sleeping pad, ice axe, climbing rope and more. Many camping bags have special tool loops and fasteners for extra storage. However, one should ensure that the weight carried is minimal so that it is not difficult to trek or climb.

    Accessory pockets: These required should be carrying essentials that might be required urgently or very often. This should have a map, compass, GPS, Sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm, water bottles, ID and cash.

    How to host a caravan bag or a trailer bag?

    We often make a common mistake of hoisting the bag by its strap, which often straps under pressure. This can also cause severe damage to your shoulder harness, it can also cause a lot of imbalance while mounting it. Therefore, it is best advised to follow a process while mounting the bag. The straps should be loosened to make the pack easier to slip on. The pack should then be tilted to an upright position on the ground. One should then stand next to the back panel while spreading the legs apart comfortably. Ensure that you bend the knee well enough to balance your position.
