I have just gotten into hiking and bought my first large backpack the Outbound 60L Canyon pack. I plan to use it for some overnighters and cub scout hikes with the kids next spring. So I decided today to try it out for a short run to see how I do. I loaded it with all the gear I would be taking for an overnighter minus the second set of clothes and food. Everything else sleeping bag, tent, stove, and water were all packed up. I got to the trailhead and slung the pack up onto my back and headed off. It was pretty slow going at first getting all the adjustments set and getting used to a heavy bag on my back but then I started to get the hang of it and felt pretty good the whole way up and back down. The pack adjusted well and centered the load right over my hips as it should. The adjustments worked great again in keeping the pack glued to my back with hardly any flopping around. A successful first mini run and looking forward to an actual overnighter with a longer hike to get there.
