Aarn Packs - Universal Balance Bag

Aarn Packs - Universal Balance Bag




Enjoy many of the benefits of the Aarn Packs System while using your current pack. Our Universal Balance Pockets are designed to help balance your load while working with non-Aarn branded packs.

They work on the same principles as our Aarn Balance Pockets, offering increased energy efficiency, strain relief and convenient access.

Will they work on my pack? They are thoughtfully designed to fit any brand of backpack that uses a hip belt and shoulder straps.

Aarn Universal Balance Pockets are attached to the pack once you have put the pack on and are unclipped before you take the pack off.

How do I attach to my current pack? Firstly, while not wearing the pack, secure the top two detachable clips to the shoulder straps above the sternum strap area. You can keep the top parts of the buckles attached to your pack permanently.

For everyday use, put your pack on, clip in the top buckles, and then tuck the bottom bracket behind your hip belt and use the velcro in front of the hip belt to secure it.

How do I remove the pockets? Undo the velcro to remove the hip belt attachment and unclip the top buckles. Leave the top part of the buckles on your pack for easy putting on and off.

Universal Balance Pockets are designed to be used in the backcountry, offering excellent visibility of your feet on rough terrain.
