How to Properly Fit a Backpack - Video Infographic

Paying attention to how you wear a backpack can help you prevent back and shoulder pain and truly enjoy your adventure.
Once your pack is on, make sure all of the straps are loosened all the way.
So you might want to check each strap first. Well, it's never too late for you to start developing good backpack habits. 

Waist straps help to distribute the weight load to the hips, relieving shoulder pressure. 

Most of the weight should sit on your hips, so buckle the hip belt first and make sure it is snug across your hip bones.

Adjust the shoulder straps so the backpack is high on your back and the shoulder straps are comfortable on your shoulders.

Guide to Responsible Hammocking - Hammock camping the right way - Animated Video Infographic

Reduce your camping footprint, and swing into your next adventure!

Hammocks are prime examples of a minimum-impact shelter. They require no ground leveling, trenching or staking. When used with a tree-friendly suspension system, hammocks don’t alter the natural environment. And the smaller your camping footprint, the less likely you are to impact plants or wildlife.

Here are the tips for hammock-camping the right way:

Watch Video directly on my Youtube Channel: 

1: Use “tree saver” straps. These wide nylon/polyester webbing straps go around the tree to minimize girdling and damage to the bark and cambium layer, which can cause wood-tissue death. Never use anything made from a non-tree-friendly material, such as plastic zip cords. Never hammer or screw anything into trees.

2: Set up hammock camp at least 200 feet from any water source. These riparian areas provide unique plant habitats and communities and are significant in soil stabilization.

3: Look for an established (pre-existing) campsite to set up your hammock. Per Leave No Trace principles: “Good campsites are found, not made. Altering a site is not necessary.” Large hammocking groups should split into smaller groups to prevent unnecessary disturbance. Leave No Trace advises: “Keep campsites small. Focus activity in areas where vegetation is absent.”
