Outdoor tips: Adjusting your pack

Posted: Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Whether we're talking about a daypack or a backpack, it's important to buy one that fits. These days most pack manufacturers have guidelines about the approprite size for you, based on simple measurements. And while that's a crucial step, it's not the only one that matters. This video, featuring our very own guide and Appalachian Trail thru-hiker Leigh Saint,  shows you how to adjust your pack so it fits comfortably on your body. And her advice is just as good for a daypack as it is for a backpack. A well-adjusted pack makes for a well-adjusted hiker, we always say!
