Choosing the backpack
- Its capacity should be between 40 and 50 liters. The larger it is, the more it weighs in vacuum and the more we fill it.
- Once filled should not exceed 10% of the weight of the walker bearing it. For example, a 70-kilogram person should carry a backpack of between 7 and 8 kilos. All the weight above this figure will be billed in the form of overloads or muscle contractures.
- Her seams should be strong, her shoulder pads should be padded, with lumbar reinforcement and adjustable straps for the waist and chest. It must have a system that allows its regulation according to the height of each user. You don't have to go to school mode and it's essential to adjust the straps so that the weight rests on your back and doesn't pull your shoulders.
- The waterproof case is essential to cover it in rainy days. Many already bring it, but some do not do their job well and run fast, so sometimes it's interesting to buy a more sturdy part.
