A hiking bag is a container item. It can be worn on the player’s back, allowing items to be carried with an encumbrance reduction. The hiking bag has blue, green, and red color variants, which are only visual differences.


The hiking bag is a middle tier bag, and has a decent carrying capacity and encumbrance reduction. Any items stored inside the hiking bag will only count as 30% of its original encumbrance when calculated with the player's overall encumbrance (an item with 2 encumbrance would weigh the player down by 0.6 encumbrance. Note that the item itself still takes up 2 encumbrance when taking up space in the bag). While the hiking bag is not as effective as the higher tier bags, it is easier to find. The normal hiking bag also applies a run speed modifier of 0.95, similar to other bags of its size. It also comes in a larger variant, a big hiking bag, which holds more items and has more encumbrance reduction.

The normal hiking bag can be found in residential houses, cabinets and dressers, and camping stores.


The loot distributions can be found in the table(s) below.

Effective chance calculations are based off of default loot settings, and median zombie density. The higher the density of zombies in an area, the higher the effective chance of an item spawning. Chance is also influenced by the lucky and unlucky traits.
