Backpack Weight Reviewed

A lot of emphasis is placed on backpack weight, yet little is discussed on the relationship of backpack weight and backpack fitting.

Having a lightweight backpack with insufficient strength of design, minimum padding, and limited features, is of little comfort when your backpack is not, or cannot be correctly fitted. It is far better to have a correctly fitted backpack, than a backpack that may be some 500 grams lighter. If fitted correctly the backpack will be easier to carry and this will greatly reduce physical fatigue. Here at White Mountain Backpacks™ we have correctly fitted quality backpacks that were purchased more than 15 years ago. These backpacks have been in use all this time with internal staves that were completely straight, with no evidence of an attempt by the seller to fit the backpack.

The higher weight of Travel Backpacks have also been discussed when we talk of weight, bot please remember that these Travel Backpacks will usually include the removable daypack. The removable daypack on a Travel Backpack can weigh as much as 1kg of the total backpack weight.

In summary, poor comfort is often blamed on the overall weight of the backpack rather than looking to having the backpack correctly fitted. A whole market has been created on lightweight backpacks without fully exploring the fact that a great number of backpacks are sold without a correct fitting. The fact is some of these backpacks have poor harness designs, are not designed as a unisex harness, are not able to be correctly fitted, are too large for the user, or have an internal stave that is so soft it cannot provide adequate support to the backpack. Fitting a backpack must always include removing and contouring the Internal Staves to your back by a professional  who will also provide to you, instruction of avoiding back and shoulder injury when puting on and taking off your backpack.
