Note that the more they carry with them, the slower their movement becomes.

Overburden[ | ]

Overburden side

An overburden dwarf.

Dwarfs that have their carrying capacity reduced while they're carrying items, either by removing their backpack, or by replacing it with a smaller backpack, those overburden dwarfs will display a big generic wooden box on their back, until they can deliver the items to the stock.
