In this article you will learn how what you carry in terms of weight will affect your hike or backpacking trip. These 5 rules from the military come from research and study and might come in handy next time you are going to be wearing a backpack.
Back Packer shares the rules. The rules tell you that the weight of the shoes you wear can greatly affect the amount you can carry for the distance. It tells you how much weight in your pack per your body weight will slow you down and how much speed is cut off when you are hiking an incline.
The one that I was kind of shocked by was that going up hill slows you down twice as much as going down hill speeds you up. If you are ready to go hiking or backpacking these rules may help you be a little more prepared. If you would like some hiking tip check out this Round-Up Of Hiking Hacks.
