Weighing it up

weighing scalesI read that as a rule of thumb my pack should weigh about 10% of my body weight.

It’s easy to pack a lot and the weight soon adds up. So I got onto eBay and purchased an electronic weighing scale that could measure down to 5 grams.

I started weighing my gear and put my scales in my pocket when I went to buy new gear.

Being aware of how much things weigh has been useful in choosing gear.

The weight measurements you will see on this site have been taken with this weighing scale.
