We stripped our packs down to include precisely what’s needed. And nothing more. Load lifters were a tool designed to allow users to unnecessarily carry a heavy load more comfortably on their back and shoulders. The philosophy behind taking load lifters away is to make users more aware of what they're carrying and lighten their load, rather than masking the discomfort of weight that may still be taking a toll on other parts of their body. Instead, we encourage proper weight distribution and compartmentalization, as well as proper torso sizing for a more organic and comfortable fit.
