How much weight does the average backpacking pack weigh?

Did you know most backpacks have five adjustable straps to help alleviate a heavy load and adjust to the terrain at hand? Come stop by Walkabout Outfitter for all of your outdoor needs, and get fitted for a backpack while you're here! Both day hikers and longer distance hikers need to be aware of pack weight to avoid damage to the item's seams and injury to self.

All weekend long, we will have a sample backpack filled to the brim. Take a guess at how much our pack weighs and you can win fun prizes! The closest guess to the pack's actual weight will win. :)


One entry per person. Winners will be announced on Monday, October 18th.
