So I much prefer to carry a golf bag than pushing a cart but too heavy a bag can compress the disc's in your spine over time causing long term back problems. So what is the max weight we should carry? Any chiropractor's out there know the answer? I've heard for backpacking with a backpack that has a waist strap is 20% of your body weight max and a day pack is 10% of your body weight. But I also here 15% in a regular back pack is ok too. The difference between 10 and 15% is quite a lot. My ideal body weight is about 175 but I am about 25 lbs overweight. So I am guessing 17-25 lbs should be ok? If you carry your golf bag do you know how much it weighs?
