Worth the extra cost on those long portages. Check out the extra padding against your back. It is the thickest on the market. The heavily contoured layers of reticulated and closed-cell foam on the back of this harness flattens out the bulge of the barrel. Thus eliminating the pressure on the spine so common with other harnesses.
This harness can be custom fit to each and every individual, using the detachable S-shaped shoulder straps (5 sizes) and hip belt (3 sizes). Barrel sold separately.

- All stress points are sewn multiple times or bar-tacked
Suspension System - Barrel Harness
