I tried wearing my pack for the first time on a short hike/walk this weekend. It weighed about 20 pounds (I’m a hundred +or- pound female) and it didn’t feel bad. Aside from making my back sweaty – gross. What is the average weight most people carry in their packs? I know a 30 minute nature trail at my local park isn’t the same as the hike from Interlaken to Gimmelwald, so I’d lilke to know, is 20 pounds doable for a (pretty much) physically fit girl? Thanks
