Backpacking – How To Lighten The Load To Take Less Weight

Before you know it, you can easily over pack your backpacking items and equipment when preparing for a backpacking trip. But be careful as over packing can cause many problems. Not only does it make your pack heavier and will exhaust you out – it could give back problems thus affecting your health on the trip. By learning how to pack light, you will elevate such problems and have a more enjoyable trip.

The first thing to do is lay out on the floor all of the things you wanted to take on your trip. Take a good look at everything and toss out things that are not absolutely essential. Think about whether you can actually survive without an item and if you can then leave it behind. Next consider multiple uses for the items that you are going to take. If you be creative, you will find you can cut the number of items down in half be finding many uses for the same items. This will also help so you don’t ‘lose’ things in your backpack. You will have less clutter to sort through until you find what you are looking for. Look for lightweight alternatives to use instead of the current items you plan to take with you.

After carrying out the above you should just be left with the essentials to take on your backpacking trip. Although you need to take essentials such as your backpack and tent, there are ways to make sure you cut down on the weight. Consider an internal frame backpack as they are far lighter than an external backpack. You will also find you are more mobile and agile with an internal frame backpack. External frame packs tend to make you top-heavy and thus can only be used on certain terrain, where it’s safe. Consider purchasing a titanium based tent as it is lightweight and durable. Eat the heavier items of food first so as you get further into your trip, you will have less to carry.
