Before you go off on your trip, spend a bit of time getting to know your backpack. Try different ways of packing it, find out what way works best to distribute the weight. Put the backpack on and adjust the straps. Make sure it is comfortable before you even have to think about walking any sort of distance with it. This may sound time consuming and like a lot of hassle, but it’s better to do it in the comfort of your own home than on the road. Nothing’s worse than that first time you unpack your bag and then can’t figure out how to get it all again.
