Nylon Jackets for Backpacks Travel Tip

Nylon Jackets for Backpacks Travel Tip
I have a lightweight jacket in my Travelers Bag, I call it a Windbreaker, it is made of 100 percent nylon.

I carry a daypack that contains my camera constantly, when I wear the nylon jacket I am uncomfortable, the backpack continually slips off the shoulders.

When choosing a jacket and backpack, pay attention to the types of materials Ask yourself,
“Does this material slip?”

If it does slip the shoulder straps will continually slip off your shoulders.

I continue to carry this lightweight jacket, it is small enough to fold up and put inside the camera bag. I am a tropics traveler, if for some reason I was above or below 23.5 degrees of the equator for long periods of time; I would start searching for a better jacket.

Have you thought about going in a sewing store and buying velcro? Attach a piece to your jacket and put the other piece on the strap of the camara, when you walk around it will stay put. When you need it, it pulls off very easily.


I believe deltoid excercise would help.

I am thinking about the rubber and button solutions.
