Whether it is necessary according to " the newest fashion " to struggle with each superfluous gram in a backpack, or it is necessary to go "classically", i.e. with 20 kgs of various and certainly useful things in the big 90 liter backpack...
I think, it will be interesting to supporters of both approaches to esteem a following fragment from the book of Century Semenovskogo " Equipment of the tourist ", published 80 years ago, i.e. in 1929...
