How to Pack a Backpack
Camping can be really fun, but packing can be a nightmare if not done properly. 5-Minute Crafts has a few tips to help you organize everything inside your hiking backpack.
The first things that you should pack should be placed in the bottom zone of the bag. These should be items that you won’t need before camping. These include a sleeping bag, a sleeping pad, and any extra layers.
2. Core-of-backpack (back)
This is where you should store your heaviest items like a tent, cookware, food, and other heavy camping supplies.
3. Core-of-backpack (front)
In this section you should keep the lightest items like towels, pillows, and other lightweight clothing.
Save this space for medium items/essentials that you’ll need more urgently like toilet supplies, rain jackets, first-aid kits, and a water filter and purifier.
5. Accessory pockets
These pockets should be used to organize smaller essentials like: maps, a compass, GPS, sunscreen, bug spray, water bottles, an ID, and a wallet.
