So, following these 5 principles, what kind of equipment should be carried when backpacking with big travel backpack?

1. Backpack and rain cover
A 35-50L backpack is required for camping for 2-4 days; a backpack of 70L or more is required for long-term camping. The comfortable carrying weight of an ordinary person is 20% of the body weight.
2. Trekking poles

When hiking for a long time, trekking poles can effectively reduce the pressure on the knees caused by the weight; the effect of using double sticks will be better.
3. Tent
Double-layer, aluminum alloy bracket, windproof and waterproof fabric, lightweight and small tent are basically all right. Taking into account the need to store items in the tent, the actual number of campers can be reduced by one person from the number of campers, which is more comfortable.

4. Sleeping bag and moisture-proof pad in carry on backpack
Choose a sleeping bag with a suitable temperature scale according to the lowest night temperature of the campsite. The inflatable cushion will be lighter than the sponge cushion, but the sponge cushion has a better keeping warm effect.
