LIGHTNESS AND BALANCE
Choosing only the lightest gear for the conditions increases enjoyment by reducing effort and strain. Even more critical in reducing energy consumption than having the lightest pack design is to eliminating the leverages of an offset load on your back. You can do this by distributing the weight evenly around your center of gravity with an Aarn Bodypack. Now with a balanced load, reducing the weight of the gear you carry in your pack gives the biggest rewards.
Our design focus is reducing pack weights without compromising durability & load carrying performance. Our Stronglite models weigh less than a twelfth of the load they are designed to carry comfortably. Models that easily handle 20 kg weigh no more than 1.7 kg.
Our Ultralite models take this process to the limits of extended durability at a reasonable price by using lighter materials and
minimalist design. By using internal dividers on the largest models, simpler and lighter frame systems can maintain our superb back shape. Our Ultralite models achieve weight to volume ratios of up to 1 kg/ 45L.
WEIGHT REDUCTION OF YOUR GEAR
Using one of our packs is the first step in reducing effort, but the pack is only part of the load you carry. In order to achieve really light loads, each essential item needs to be chosen for the highest performance /weight ratio. Start with footwear because 1 pound on the foot equals 6.4 on the back. Buy the lightest gear for the terrain and climate you frequent. Ultralight kit for a week's trip can be well over 5 kg lighter than standard equipment. This makes a huge difference to your comfort, enjoyment and safety. Travel farther and more easily by traveling lighter.
