About the Front Pack
The RIBZ front pack is made of 210d water resistant ripstop nylon. The ribs pack weighs approx. 11 oz. All components are water resistant and have proven durability in the most extreme of conditions. With an average storage capacity between 500 and 700 cubic inches, you can comfortably relocate your desired weight in the front packs. The use of a front pack repositions a portion of your weight forward which reduces your overall shoulder stress and increases comfort, mobility, and balance. A front pack also creates the illusion of carrying a lighter load. Though the RIBZ front pack was designed with ultralight backpacking intentions, any outdoor activity where easy access of equipment is critical is where it proves beneficial. RIBZ front pack can be used alone as a vest but is primarily designed to work with your existing backpack as increased functionality.
Hints and Tips
The RIBZ front pack was designed with many sports and activities in mind. Upon receipt of your RIBZ it is smart to first adjust the shoulder straps so they fit high above the waist line and low enough to fit comfortable under your arms. Basically fitted right around your ribcage. It is also a good idea to load your pack with the items for your activity before adjusting the back straps to desired fitting. RIBZ can be adjusted to fit snug for high intensity activities or loosely for when casual. For the serious ultralight backpacking enthusiast, try moving a few pounds off your back into your RIBZ for better weight distribution and comfort. For best results cleaning your RIBZ we recommend hand washing and air drying. RIBZ are capable of being machine washed on gentle cycle though this approach is not favored.
