Experience the balancing power of Aarn Balance Bags.
Aarn Balance Bags allow users of other brands of packs to experience a naturally balanced load without having to purchase an Aarn Pack.
They work on the same principles as Aarn Balance Pockets, offering increased energy efficiency, strain relief and convenient access. Because they are designed to fit any brand of pack that uses a hip belt and sternum straps, they attach to the pack differently than Aarn Balance Pockets.
While Balance Pockets are connected to the pack before you put the pack on (and can be left permanently attached), Balance Bags are attached to the pack once you have put the pack on and are unclipped before you take the pack off.
Universal Balance Bags are designed to be used in the back country, offering great visibility of your feet on rough terrain.
