Baggage preparation is familiar to people who like to move, but the luggage is so compact that not everyone knows. The trick is to get rid of the unnecessary stuff.
The secret of lightweight luggage when camping
The weight of the backpack or luggage plays no small part in the journey and especially hiking or camping. Heavy, bulky luggage causes fatigue. Here are tips to make your bag lightweight and compact.
If you go with a friend, you should divide the furniture evenly with them. The type of things you can help each other is food, water, tents, cooking equipment.
The division will help luggage of each person slightly significant, avoiding a person to carry on the back too many things.
One of the mistakes when preparing travel dust bag is carrying too much clothes. Nice clean clothes every day is not necessary when you have to travel on the trail. You can reuse most of the costumes that you carry.
You should divide the baggage into several layers: the bottom layer, the middle layer and the top layer. This will help you get flexible gear, and reduce the amount of clothes needed. Underwear or socks clean enough for each day of travel is not necessary.
Also, leave some extra items such as shoes, bulky coats, or something made of cotton.
What’s not required, stay home
Long walks or remote areas often feel the need to bring a lot of amenities. Consider carefully whether you really need it, otherwise, stay home.
However, saying that does not mean you’re going to drop your belongings at home. You can carry it but choose something that is compact, light and does not add too much. For example, a headlamp is more rational than a flashlight or a lantern.
Similarly, you can use a small tablet or electronic reader instead of carrying a bulky novel, using a headset instead of a Bluetooth speaker.
Put back the pile tent
The use of traditional tent piles is not necessary when you have dedicated hiking sticks. After using this stick on the move, you can also use it to set up the camp.
Leaving the pile on the camp helps reduce the weight of the baggage. Likewise with widgets that can have multiple uses at once.
Re-packaged food and utensils
Add a tip to your luggage that is lightweight that is moving the food, snacks of the same type from the packaging to the plastic bag with the lock. Sunscreen, insect repellent, disinfectant … can be transferred to small plastic recycling bottles.
Short trips do not require too many bottles for each solution, bringing bottles to waste and heavy baggage.
“Upgrade” of specialized travel
Recently, the tourism industry has always been focused on mass reduction products. Backpack, tent, sleeping bags are “lightweight” previously much heavier than today’s standards.
So, replacing the new one is worth doing and should be done immediately. Slower “upgrades” will not help you reduce your luggage weight.
Nothing by real experience
Heavy luggage overload is what usually happens during the first preparation, because you do not always know what to bring to your trip, until you reach the reality.
The more experience, the more you learn what is needed and not necessary. Over a period of time, you gradually leave the item is not spirit, luggage nature becomes neat. Believe in your intuition and instinct.
