Adjustment: To adjust the bag for a perfect fit it is important to do so carefully and make minor adjustments to make sure the bag fits your frame. Make sure that the shoulder strap passes over the shoulder from the back panel without any gaps between strap and shoulder. The belt should be snug and placed on the top of the hips. Depending on the setting; allow enough space to remove or add layers of clothing.
Firmly compress the content using external compression straps. The aim is to give the bag an elongated and slim profile. It is particularly important to maintain lateral balance: a bag that leans to one side puts excessive pressure on the spine and irritates shoulders. Also; be sure to put your heaviest gear inside the main compartment. Attaching various pieces of equipment around the outside of the bag can seriously disrupt the balance; especially when they can swing in any direction. Finally; avoid putting too many heavy items in the top flap as too much weight will make it overly heavy from the top. For maximum comfort this is to be avoided.
Biomechanical studies have shown that a good distribution of the weight in the backpack makes carrying more efficient and is essential to minimize back strain. Yosemite bags are designed to carry loads on the most difficult and most extreme terrain. Correctly loading the bag is critical in the stability and comfort of the load. Ideally; a light object (a sleeping bag for example) must be loaded into the main pocket. In the main compartment of the bag; heavy items should be placed in the middle; the lighter objects outside and heavy items against the wall immediately in contact with the back. The contents of the bag should be as compact as possible so that the load remains near the body. The lightest items should be placed in the upper portions of the bag.
