The Benefits of Our Balance Packs
Incredible Ergonomic Value
Consider this: Your spine is not a straight line, it curves inward as it approaches your waistline, yet a traditional hiking bag alone distributes weight straight down as if your spine did not curve. By offsetting that weight with a counterweight on the lower front portion of your body, you bring the weight distribution into alignment with your body’s natural shape. If you were to carry the same load in your pack before adding our Body Packs to your front, effectively carrying additional weight in them, you’ll definitely feel as though you carried less after a few hours, not more. By aligning the load with your body’s desired shape, it will feel as though you’re carrying much, much less than you are.
They’re Handy, Too
The term “handy” was made to refer to things that are conveniently close at hand; what could be more close at hand than packs that you can actually rest your hands upon? Even the best hiking bags in the world can’t give you access to the things you’ll need while you’re blazing the trail. By now, you’re probably used to stopping to get anything you need out of your pack, replacing it, re-hoisting your pack, and then moving on; maybe you have a buddy do the pack digging for you, but neither case allows you to continue moving as you do so. With our Balance Packs, accessing the things you need to keep “handy” will be easier than ever before. Plus, since you’ll receive the ergonomic benefits mentioned above, you won’t want to stop and dig through your pack nearly as often anyway!
