after my weekend hiking and camping this weekend i started wondering??
how much weight in a pack is too much.i am 5'7" and weigh 160pounds...29 inch waist and 42 inch chest. i was carrying 65 pounds in an internal frame pack and walked in pretty rough terrain for maybe 12 miles over 2 days...i was burned out as it was 90 degrees.
i was talking to some guy and he claimed to carry 125 pounds in elk season all the time in montana. he was maybe 5'10" and 190 pounds.(i find this unlikely in the mountains) at least not safely
SOOOO how much maximum weight have you all carried in 1 load and for how far, in what terrain.
