How do Aarn Balance Pockets Work?

Attach the Balance Pocket wireframe to the holsters on the hipbelt. Click it in with the press stud to lock it in place. This will transfer the load onto the hipbelt.

Clip the small rods at the top of the Balance Pockets into the matching O rings on the Aarn Packs shoulder straps. The O rings will free-slide up or down the shoulder straps, so the shoulders bear no load from the pockets. 

By sharing weight between the front Balance Pockets, hipbelt, and pack, we can reduce or eliminate the leverages on the hips and lower back. The Aarn Balance System works to remedy the forward lean created by standard packs.

The wireframes can be bent to fit all body types and sizes and to create airflow. Shoulder straps can be worn more loosely than a backpack (eliminating back and shoulder strain) so that more of the load is transferred onto the hips.

The two separate pockets are designed to create a gap between them so that you can see your feet as you walk.

The Balance Pockets are attached to the pack before you put it on. They can be left permanently attached or removed for separate use.
