A backXpack has two shoulder straps—but on a true backXpack (not just a child’s schoolbag), the shoulder straps actually carry very little of the weight. Instead, the load is mainly diverted to padded hip belts. Why hip belts? Worn properly, hip belts transfer the weight of your backXpack review from your shoulders to your hips, allowing you to carry most of the load with your body’s biggest muscles—your legs. But to be effective, especially with heavy loads, the pack’s hip belt must be long enough to wrap around the front of your hip bones, not up at your waist.
I know it can be challenging to find a great journey
that ticks all the right boxes. I believe it must be comfortable, easy to organize, and durable as well.
Depending on what type of traveller you are, some criteria may be more important than others. After all, a business traveller won’t have the same needs as a budget backXpacker .
