A more comfortable Backpack...
One thing that I hear all the time from backpackers is "my backpack is so heavy. One important thing to remember with your pack is that you need to carry it up on your illiac crest and not down on your hips. The illiac crest is your hip bone on the side of your body. This is important because it puts all of the weight form your backpack on your skeletal structure and not on you muscles. Another thing to help you get a more... comfortable backpack is knowing how to correctly pack the weight in the bag. This will make a huge difference the next time you go out into the woods.
