Ultralight Backpacking

Ultralight backpacking describes a basic backpacking strategy that focuses on a minimal base pack weight, excluding consumables such as food and fuel. Backpacks designed for ultralight backpacking are often a smaller on storage. RIBZ can expand the storage capacity of your ultralight set up by adding over 700 cubic inches of usable space.

An additional advantage of RIBZ front pack is the load-balancing effect. By placing a small portion of your weight on the front and side of your body, your load weight is better distributed, allowing you to stand with improved posture, and move with greater agility. You’ll be amazed at how balanced and agile you’ll feel when wearing a front pack with your backpack. RIBZ front pack can increase the speed of your hiking by placing the essential items within reach. There is no need to remove your backpack when wearing RIBZ. You’ll have your headlamp, snacks, gps, knife & shades more accessible and right where you can get at em.  RIBZ front pack weighs approximately 9 oz.
