Personal belongings for skiing

While on tour you should not take what you want, but things you can’t dispense with. Unnecessary things increase the weight of backpack and sweat fills the eye.


You should completely refuse from the tarpaulin backpack of "round loaf" type and use modern anatomical models. The optimal size of a backpack for boys - 80 - 100 litres, for girls - 60 - 80 litres. Also in the backpack you should providently leave room for common products and equipment. For example, for six-day hike the weight of products will be about 5 kg /person. General equipment - about 3 kg. The total weight of the backpack should not exceed 18 - 19 kg (for girls a little less).

Backpacks of Terra Incognita firm proved as rather good ones.

You can take them at our rent.
