ADJUST YOUR BACKPACK
Step 1: Put on
Loosen the shoulder straps and lift the backpack by the handle to leg-height and slip your arms into each shoulder strap one by one.
Step 2: Hip strap
Always fasten the hip strap before tightening the shoulder straps: the middle of the hip strap should be in line with the hip bone.
Step 3: Shoulder straps
After adjusting the back length, moderately tighten the shoulder straps.
Step 4: Load control straps
Affix load control straps in the collarbone area at an approx. 20 – 30° angle.
Step 5: Chest strap
Improves freedom of movement, stabilises carrying system and therefore prevents early exhaustion.
Step 6: Load control
Hip strap Improves horizontal load control.
High-end carrying system for heavy loads. The X1 System was developed specifically for heavy loads. It works based on a system that is as simple as it is ingenious:
Two ergonomically shaped, crossed aluminium bars in framechannels (1) transfer part of the carrying load laterally to the specially padded hip strap (2) transferring the load from the back to the hips. The anatomically positioned, ultra-comfortable hipstrap consists of a multilayered hip fin with a reinforcementpanel in PE. The deflected belt strap (3) makes it easier to tighten and set in position. A rubberised lumbar pad (4) between the hipfins prevents the backpack from slipping. A short, anatomicallyshaped aluminium rod (5) behind it guarantees the optimum fit. The back padding (6) above it is ultra-concave in shape, sewn into chambers for better ventilation, and rests perfectly against the back with its generous technical padding. The load controlstraps (7) can be partially attached in two different positions for optimum setting. Soft, ergonomically shaped shoulder straps (8) with height adjustment (9) increase the level of comfort. The lid is also height adjustable (10) .
Size-adjustable carrying system for medium to heavy loads.
Two aluminium bars (1) forming an inverted „V“ plus two short fibreglass reinforced bars for additional support form the central static unit. The two fibreglass reinforced bars (2) lead from the inner aluminium frame channels laterally into the hip wings (3). The dimensions and arrangement of these reinforced bars result in an excellent combination of efficient load transmission and system flexibility. Three-part ergonomically shaped hip
strap consists of a central lumbar pad with a rubberised insert (4) to prevent the backpack from slipping, and two conically shaped hip wings. They have several layers of comfortable padding, are reinforced with a PE panel and can easily be tightened using a deflected belt strap. (5)
The technical back padding (6) consists of a number of chambers, and is conically shaped to ensure the optimum position and contact with the backpack. The load control straps (7) and the ergonomically shaped shoulder straps (8) can be attached in different positions for optimum
adjustment. The lid is also height-adjustable (9).
Size-adjustable carrying system for medium to heavy loads. The V2 Plus Carrying System has a high contact point on the back panel that offers a tremendous range when adjusting the back length. Backpacks with this system also have a detachable hip strap, which means they can also be carried with fully-packed waistcoats and chest rigs – the broad, ergonomically shaped shoulder straps make sure they are still comfortable to wear. The detachable hip strap can also be worn separately as a „warrior belt“.
Two V-shaped aluminium rods (1) guide the force directly into the reinforced hip strap. The three-part ergonomically shaped hip strap consists of a lumbar pad with a rubberised insert (2) to prevent the backpack from slipping, and two conically shaped hip wings (3). They have several layers of padding and are reinforced with a PE plate. The hip strap is easy to tighten using the deflected belt strap (4). The back padding (5) is concave and sewn into chambers to provide pleasant ventilation. The height of the wide, ergonomically shaped shoulder straps is adjustable (6), and together with the load control straps (7) ensure a close, firm fit of the backpack. The Velcro-attached lumbar padding can be removed when required, in which case the system‘s aluminium rods – which are normally secured in the hip strap – are secured in band flaps. This makes it even easier to pull the rods out from the bottom when required.
Basis carrying system for medium to heavy loads.
The construction of the Y1 System with specially arranged bars (1) provides an excellent combination of ecient load transfer and high exibility. The ergonomically contoured hip belt with lumbar pad (2) and conically shaped hipbelt (3) comfortably padded and prevents slipping the backpack. Load control straps (4), the comfortable shoulder straps (5) and hip belt (6) are adjustable and can easily be adjusted to the the user.
X Vent-Zero Plus SYSTEM
Perfect ventilation and extremely light weight. The X Vent Zero Plus Carrying System combines excellent ventilation and a lightweight construction with adjustable fitting options.
Two fiberglass rods are attached in an X-shape (1) to the back of the pack and provide, together with the integrated hip belt, the supporting structure
of the pack (2).Two additional fiberglass rods (3) transfer the load to the anatomically shaped, ventilated hip belt (4). The open space created by the supporting structure (5) results in an extremely large ventilation zone. The system allows for the tension of the X-shaped fiberglass rods to be adjusted (6), which varies the distance of the load to the back – changing also the center of gravity of the load.
