Encumbrance is a status effect placed upon the player when you are carrying too much in your backpack. When you are "encumbered" you have a greater chance to sprain your ankle and you move slower.

By default, the maximum amount you can carry in your backpack is 30.00kg, but it can temporarily decrease if your Condition percentage drops or if you are Fatigued.
