Getting old and the back is shot. I used to use a sling pack but the neck loading on that got annoying (different company by the way). The Bandit with the hip belt is perfect for shifting the load on long day hikes with my better half. It locks in solid with velcro. I have the cobalt blue pack and the gray hip belt looks pretty sharp.
Hip belt definitely help with comfort and holding the loads
Distributes weight well. It’s a bit much for the Bandit pack. The pack must sit low to allow proper hip fit
Works great! Adding the belt made my pack that much better.
Standard Hip Belt
Fit and comfort is second to none
Got this hip belt for a bandit. With the belt and two pouches makes the bandit almost perfect.
Not what I expected
I thought it would attach to a pack that I purchased previously but it doesn't. I'm keeping it anyway because I know that whenever I buy a pack it's going to be through Eberlestock. I think I have three of them now and some accessories.I know this is going to work for something I'm going to buy in the future.. As of now nothing beats the Eberlestock quality and service.
Thank you for being there.
Very nice belt. Lots of places to hang things!
