Hip-loading Belt accessory for use with BackTpack 3, providing the option to load the hips and bypass some or all loading of the spine and shoulders. The Hip-loading Belt allows carrying while avoiding loads on injured or painful areas, or for long distance.
The Hip-loading Belt is very helpful while traveling and walking long distance. It is a relief to feel the load off of your spine and shoulders after a long day on your feet. The Hip-loading Belt also keeps the side-bags secure at the sides when walking fast, running, biking, or during other activity.
BackTpack 4 has the Hip-loading Belt built in and it is included in BackTpack 3.1.
IMPORTANT! Use of the Hip-loading Belt will minimize the posture training effect of the BackTpack carrying system. Postural training needs axial-loading through the shoulders and spine (and head when possible) so the body feels direction to respond vertically, the purpose of BackTpack’s design.
