Video: Packing For A Day Hike

Video: Packing For A Day Hike
Please Rate This Article

This is a video I put together for All Outdoor, and covers the basics of setting up a backpack for a day hike.

In short, keep the most used items within easy access.  This usually means an outside pouch of the backpack.  This is where I keep the maps, compass and water filter.

Least used items go in the main compartment.  This is where I keep stuff like food, stove, cook pot… etc.

The pack in the video is a three day assault pack.  Read my first impressions of the pack here – Three Day Assault Pack First Impressions.
