belt is incredibly well constructed. super comfortable with all the padding. would definitely recommend as an addition to any of the great packs Eberlestock makes
Expanding the capabilities and comfort of my Bandit pack. For the days when you want to run it a lil heavy on a longer hike it can make all the difference. Great product. Great company. Great customer service. What else could you ask for?
Easy to install, comfortable
What can I say fits perfect , it’s well made I used it on the bandit pack to make it more comfortable also gives a way to add pouches at the waist.
Comfortable and functional.
Not quite done with the set up, but, the belt is a big piece of it. Thanks
I have used this belt with the Switchblade, Little Brother, and the Skycrane. This is the most comfortable backpacking hip belt I have used and that is especially true for carrying heavy loads. This is well worth the cost.
I recently added the standard hip belt to my Bandit. It fits and compliment the pack perfectly, is well constructed, and provides extra support and clip on gear space for my deep treks into off-the-beaten-path, fly fishing locations. Great addition and I'll now always look to Eberlestock for outdoor adventure equipment.
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
