The Padded Hip Belt is best added to packs intended to regularly carry heavier than normal loads (45 lbs.+) for sustained periods. The Padded Hip Belt may also be a wise addition for those with little body fat to reduce abrasion discomfort on the hip bones. The Padded Belt is approximately double the height and thickness of the Standard Hip Belt, and is 35" of padding.

Inward or outward pull tightening capability with locking DuraFlex HD buckles ensures proper fitment and carry. The Padded Hip Belt also features three horizontal rows of MOLLE webbing for mounting accessories like the Padded accessory pouch or the MultiPack.

***DOES NOT FIT THE SWITCHBLADE, LITTLE TRICK, BANDIT, OR GUNRUNNER.

Game changer

If you have a larger than average frame the padded belt will fit more comfortably and correctly on your hips enabling you to carry heavy loads. When you combine the padded hip belt with the extra padded shoulder harness you have a true heavy pack system. For anything over 45 pounds the standard waist belt and shoulder straps are woefully inadequate.

Great hip belt

Long padded hip belt

Much better than the one that came with the pack. Molly attachments come around the front far enough to be useable with a pouch.

Padded Hip Belt

The padded hip belt is exactly as Eberlestock describes and recommends. With my pack standard contingency gear and food and water, the padded hip belt felt good. At first I thought the belt padding might be thicker than ideal. I was wrong. Today was the first good test carrying an additional twenty-two pounds of climbing gear on top of my standard load, bushwacking several miles cross-country along a river, side sloping, and up and down some steep terrain. The padded hip belt felt awesome, and I did not really feel any strain on my hips. Material and craftsmanship is heavy duty excellent. The belt buckle straps secure good. Comfort is outstanding. For reference, I am 5'11" 175 pounds, with small low body fat waist. The padded hip belt was a perfect pack upgrade, money well spent.

a must have if you're loading up your J34 with 30+ lbs. Makes it a whole new pack.

Padded Hip Belt

I strongly recommend the padded hip belt if you are having issues with hip pain carrying heavy loads. I've converted both my F1 main frames (1Reg/1Tall) and there're much more comfortable when carrying heavy loads. I find it also helps with making micro adjustments to the shoulder straps and load lifters as you have a wider range of adjustment available with the wider hip belt.

held in customs...

my order has been stuck in customs for two weeks and the delivery service remains silent. I do not hide my disappointment.

Great Hip Belt!

Very comfortable. I'd like to see this as an option when purchasing your packs, rather than an upgrade. I can't wait to use it.
