Whether you need a new backpack for school, work or travel, you need to find a backpack that meets your needs and learn to wear it correctly. Incorrectly carrying the backpack can cause back pain or injury. You may also want to personalize it before wearing the backpack to showcase your style and make it easy to return to you if it is misplaced or lost.
Adjust your backpack. Before you fill up your backpack and start using it, you need to adjust your backpack appropriately. Adjusting your backpack can make it more comfortable and help prevent injuries. Before you start using your backpack regularly, make sure it fits.
- Most backpacks have an area on the shoulder strap that you can use to adjust the length of the shoulder strap.
- Pulling the belt more or less through the buckle will adjust how long the belt is.
- Adjust the shoulder strap of the backpack so that it fits tightly on the back.
- Don't let the shoulder straps of the backpack be too loose, because carrying it too low will hurt your back.
- Make sure that the two shoulder straps are of equal length to ensure that the weight of the backpack is evenly distributed.
Pack your backpack full. Once your backpack is properly adjusted and customized, you can start filling up anything you need to carry. Be careful when packing your luggage to avoid breaking fragile items. Before you wear it, take a moment to see which bag your clothes suit you best.
- Fragile items should be placed on top of more durable items.
- Some items may have ordinary shapes or sharp corners. Try to put them so that they don’t poke you in the back.
- Before putting the liquid in the bag, make sure that all containers that store the liquid are safe.
- Don’t pack more than 10%-15% of your weight in your backpack to avoid injury.
Wear your backpack. Now your bag is full and adjusted, ready to wear. Most backpacks have two shoulder straps, both of which are needed. Pass your arms through each shoulder strap to ensure that your backpack can properly bear the weight. Pay attention to how comfortable the contents of the bag are and make adjustments if necessary.
- Don't just carry a backpack with a shoulder strap. Each arm must be passed through a shoulder strap. If your backpack is overweight, you can think about choosing a rolling back pack.
- The backpack cannot fall below the waist. Don't put your backpack low on your back.
- You may need to adjust the way you pack your items to evenly distribute the weight.
- Some backpacks have extra belts to increase stability when worn.
