Katrine Connelly, the editor/adventurer behind the website My Open Country, kindly suggested referencing her site’s post on The ABCs of Packing a Backpack. I am thrilled to do so because the piece not only shows you how to load a backpack — the ideal “carrying zones” for heavy, medium and light items — but also provides advice on choosing pack size, which is also an often asked question.

One thing I’d like to add is a few tips on packing the gear that goes inside your pack.

Thank you, Kat, for reaching out. I hope to see you out on the trail sometime!
