How To: Pack a backpack for a standard hiking trip

Pack a backpack for a standard hiking trip

In this video David Atkinson guides us through how to pack a backpack for a camping trip. The first step would be to include the bed and breakfast gear (tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad clothes and water)and then we need stone fuel for cooking and cook kit, food, headlamp, toilet paper, a shovel rain gear and weather appropriate clothing. When you have decided on your luggage you have to organize it properly, starting to put the heavy things (tent, stones, cook kit) in the middle on the bottom, next is sleeping gear, clothes in a waterproof bag on top of the tent, rain gear comes next on top, next comes food and weather appropriate gear on top of thatn in the main compartment.

Then come the zip locked smaller items like matches, batteries, a whistle and a compass, pack toe, duct tape, an emergency poncho, toilet paper and a headlight, those should go in a side pocket of the backpack.

And last but not least you'll need to pack water bottles, and then you're ready to go.
