Tours: We transfer backpack over a greater distance, but easier terrain. Not need so much emphasis on balance and on the contrary, it is possible to focus more on comfort. We should strive to get the backpack center of gravity as much as possible above the center of gravity of the body. The hardest thing is good to place in the first two quarters of the height of the backpack close to the back, the easiest things in the bottom. Moderate things can fill in the remaining space of the backpack.

Sports in nature: When activities such as running, cycling or cross-country skiing, are preferred kidneys located in the waist-volume and high-volume backpacks before. Bigger role securing luggage on my back / body than it is packed. Backpack should be always fixed on the body to be moved as little as possible. As a rule with heavy objects in the body: the closer – the better. And the more you manage to secure the load against the movement, the more comfortable and more efficient would your move.

Climbing: In extreme circumstances it may be the last step each. It is important to pack weapons and equipment so as to achieve the highest balance in the horizontal and vertical movements. Everything should be placed so that the center of the backpack was close to your body. The hardest thing (water, food, stove, mess tin, ice ax, crampons …) in the second and third quarter the height of the bag and as close to the back. Location at the back is also true for medium (food, tent and sleeping tropiko, clothes, inflatable mattress …), but their location will be the first and fourth quarter of the height of the bag. Light and bulky goods (clothes, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, raincoat …) fill the remaining space of the backpack.
