01 The use and maintenance of the backpack:
There are also techniques for carrying heavy bags on the shoulders. Put the backpack at a certain height, with the shoulders into the shoulder straps. Lean forward and stand up on your legs. This is a more convenient way.
If there is no high place to put it, lift the backpack with both hands. Put it on one knee (face the strap). Then control the bag with one hand, and grab the shoulder strap with the other hand and quickly turn around, so that one arm enters the shoulder strap, so that the other arm enters more easily.
Tighten the waistband of the backpack when walking, so that the hips are subject to the most weight, and the shoulder straps should be loosened so that the top of the shoulder straps is at an angle of 45-60 degrees. It's very easy to walk like this without carrying anything.
If there are more or all heavy objects, they can be placed evenly. The chest strap should be fastened and tightened so that the backpacker has no sense of falling back. Pull the adjustment strap between the shoulder strap and the backpack with both hands during action.
Lean forward slightly so that the gravity when walking is actually on the waist and hips, and there is no pressure on the back. In case of emergencies, the upper limbs can be flexible.
According to the correct operation of the backpack up and down, the structure of the backpack will be unevenly operated if the operation is not followed. The weight sharing effect of the lighter backpack will be reduced, and the heavy one will cause damage to the backpack structure; try to lend the backpack to others as little as possible: backpack bracket The more you carry your back, the more it fits your back curve. If you lent your backpack, you will probably have to readjust and adapt when you come back.
When passing unprotected, the shoulder straps should be loosened, and the waist and chest straps should be opened so that in case of danger, the bag can be separated as quickly as possible.
If you do not drop the backpack or pack a solid backpack, the tension of the stitches is already quite tight. If you drop the backpack rudely at this time or accidentally fall, it is easy to break the stitches or break the buckle.
Hard iron equipment should not be close to the backpack fabric: tableware, pot sets, and other hard materials close to the backpack fabric, as long as the outer surface of the backpack rubs against the hard rock walls and railings, it will easily wear the backpack fabric.
Be careful to buckle the webbing accessories during the transportation: often when you get on and off the backpack in the chartered car, there will be some pulling conditions, so pay attention to whether the waist buckle is buckled when the backpack is in the car. Some backpacks have a soft waist buckle and can be reversed. Buckle the bottom half of the backpack.
The belts of some backpacks are supported by hard plastic plates, which cannot be reversed, and they will easily split. It is best to cover the backpack with a backpack cover to prevent the webbing from being entangled with other backpacks and damage the backpack during the pulling process.
During the camping period, the backpack should be closed tightly to prevent small animals such as mice from stealing food and small insects and ants. At night, you must use a backpack cover to cover the backpack. Even in fine weather, dew will still wet the backpack.
In the snow season, you can use a backpack as the door of the snow hole. If you are walking or crawling in the woods or shrubs, it is more suitable to load the backpack and lower the center of gravity. In the camping, you can put the empty backpack under your feet and wrap it outside to insulate the cold surface to improve the sleeping temperature .
02 Cleaning of the backpack:
After the backpack is used, it will always be contaminated with soil, dust, and sweat. It is recommended to use a dry soft brush to remove the dust on the outer layer of the backpack. Wipe it directly with a damp cloth instead of contaminating the surface of the fabric.
Rinse again with clean water. If there is oily stains, it is best to use a neutral detergent. If it is difficult to judge the nature of the solution, you can use bath lotion or shampoo instead (these are generally neutral and acidic).
Rinse it well and place it in a cool place to air dry. Do not expose it to the sun, as ultraviolet rays can easily harden and embrittle the fibers. After tracing the river or a long-day trip, soak for about 30 minutes, or rinse with a lot of water to prevent organic matter, small creatures, or rotten leaves in the stream from getting stuck in the carrying system, causing mold or breeding of bacteria.
When it is not completely dried, the waterproof coating on the surface of the backpack is damaged. It is the best time to spray and maintain it with a professional water repellent. After spraying the professional outdoor water repellent, your backpack will have the same water repellent function as the new one!
03 Collection of backpack:
If the backpack is scratched, it needs to be sewn immediately. Thicker needles should be used. The needles used for patching the cushions must be sewn firmly, and the nylon thread at the end must be broken by fire.
Check the main support points, such as the waist belt, shoulder strap, and the stability of the carrying system on weekdays, to avoid deterioration or hardening of the gasket, and change the zipper when it is time to change. Don't wait until something slips out of the backpack to remedy it.
Make sure that the backpack is completely dry and empty the backpack. Do not leave anything in the backpack. On the one hand, avoid finding things. On the other hand, if there are other things in the storage, it will easily cause the backpack to deform after stacking. Finally, buckle the webbing. Tighten the buckle and put it in the storage box to keep it dry. Some professional antibacterial and anti-mold sprays can be sprayed to avoid mold growth caused by long-term storage of bacteria.
