RUNNING BACKPACKS: PERFECT ERGOMETRY FOR THE GREATEST PLEASURE.
Anyone who likes to run a lot wants to take tried and tested items with them on their run. So the backpack for jogging must meet certain criteria so that the runner sees it as the ideal utensil for his run. At first glance, one might assume that any small backpack would be suitable, but this is not the case. Find out why a jogging backpack at Keller Sports is the ideal solution for runners here.
WHAT ARE JOGGING BACKPACKS?
A jogging backpack is always cut close to the body and is worn as close to the body as possible. This works through several strap systems that have been specially designed for the running movement. For this reason, the jogging backpack looks more like a life jacket and not like an ordinary hiking backpack. Unlike a normal backpack, the running backpack must not have any space between it and the body, so that it lies smoothly against the body during every movement. Straps or belts must be tight and the weight distribution should be even. Some backpacks for jogging have special systems that can be used to stabilise loads on the back.
THE MAIN CRITERIA WHEN CHOOSING A RUNNING BACKPACK
With a running backpack, it is not the packing volume that is important, but the optimal distribution of weight over as many individual compartments or subdivisions as possible. These are used to store snacks, spare clothes, arm warmers, rain gear, mobile phone, headphones and hiking maps. It is best if the individual compartments are stretchable, i.e. made of elastic fabric.The backpack for trail running must enable the runner to take in fluids during the run without stopping. Firstly, containers for the water bottle serve this purpose. Secondly, some running backpacks already have an integrated hydration system with a fixed hydration bladder and tubes.
WHAT ADDITIONAL FEATURES DO THE BEST RUNNING BACKPACKS OFFER?
The perfect running backpack has safety features such as reflectors to help you be seen in traffic at night or in the fog. to ensure that you can also use your perfect jogging backpack for combined tours such as running/climbing, running/hiking or mountaineering/climbing, it must have various fastening systems. Man and woman often swap certain sports utensils with each other. A running backpack should therefore be designed to be adjustable in size to serve people of different heights and widths.
