A big hiking bag is a container item. It can be worn on the player’s back to allow the player to carry more items while reducing their encumbrance on the player. The big hiking bag has blue, green, and red color variants. It’s the larger version of the hiking bag.


The Big Hiking Bag an upper tier bag, and can hold 22 encumbrance while having an encumbrance reduction of 80% (an item that has 2 encumbrance would only have 0.4 encumbrance when in the bag. Note that this does not change how much space it takes up in the backpack itself). This encumbrance and encumbrance reduction level makes it one of the best bags in the game, only behind the large backpack and the military backpack.
