How to pack hiking gear. How to ship a hiking backpack?

To ensure safe transport of your equipment, follow our step-by-step instructions on how to ship a hiking backpack and other equipment:

  1. Choose the right backpack: Use a backpack to carry your hiking equipment, which is big enough to accommodate your chosen equipment.
  2. Wrap the packed backpack: Using bubble wrap or plastic wrapping, cover the entire backpack tightly, several times. Ensure objects inside the backpack are unable to move around during transport.
  3. Find an appropriately sized box: Fill the bottom of the cardboard box with cushioning material, and place the backpack on top.

  5. Close the box and seal with tape: Ensure that sides are reinforced with tape if necessary.
