External Frame Packs
- External frame supports heavy loads from attached pack and harness
- Evenly distributes weight between hips and upper back
- External frame packs have a high center of gravity, which has two advantages: It gives excellent weight transfer to the hips and it allows you to walk with a more upright posture
- Cooler to carry in hot temperatures because the pack does not rest against your back, allowing air to circulate. Great for long hikes on hot days
- Designed to provide water while you're on the move
- Users drink water via a tube equipped with a non-leaking valve
The straps of your backpacks should be stiff enough to support the weight of your backpack without sagging. Contoured, S-curve straps provide a comfortable, ergonomic fit. Foam in the shoulder and hip belts provides added cushion, while mesh-lined straps keep the bag breathable on your shoulders. Compression-molded straps deliver the best support available.
