Our On-Adjust buckle allows back-length shortening with the pack on to allow a precision fit to a wide range of body sizes. U Flow by interlinked bottom tensioners.


  • Pelvic-Form hipbelts come in 3 sizes and micro-adjust in length and angle to allow a perfect match to your pelvic size and shape. Dual-adjust tensioning allows fine-tuning of the upper hipbelt shaping around your waist and the top of your hips.
