#2: Backpack

A backpack of about 50L is sufficient, and if you need to carry more equipment, you need a larger backpack. But don't forget that bringing too much equipment can overburden your body.

If you do not exercise regularly, it is recommended that the whole equipment should not exceed 15% of your body weight.

If you weigh 60kg, don't weigh more than 9kg.

Plus, the carrying system helps distribute the weight to the lower body (not your shoulders!). ), helps to maintain body balance.

#3: Sleeping bags

When choosing a sleeping bag, you should pay attention to the following points:

Height vs sleeping bag length

A sleeping bag that is too short can make it difficult to turn around; In addition to adding unnecessary weight to a sleeping bag, the larger the space inside the sleeping bag, the more energy the body has to expend to keep warm, and the more cold it will be at night. Parents should consider that the child's development period is fast, and the sleeping bag that is just this year will be too short next year.

Ambient temperature vs sleeping bag comfort temperature

Sleeping bags will be marked with comfort temperature, please choose a sleeping bag according to the current temperature. For example, choose a sleeping bag with a comfort temperature of 20 degrees Celsius at a temperature of 20 degrees. Be aware that suburban temperatures tend to be lower than in urban areas, and you may want to choose a sleeping bag with a lower comfort temperature.
