1) Multiple Hip Belt Support
Each belt is padded with a stiff 3/8 in thick foam core.
The sizing of hip belt is dependent upon in the length of padding used in each belt. In addition to the padding, each belt has 30 inches of 1.5" webbing. This allows the belt considerable lattitude for waist sizes. Which belt is right for you depends upon how much padding you wish. The table below list the various sizes of hip belts available and their recommended waist sizes.
Hip Belt Pockets Each of the two hip belt pockets measures 3.5" X 6" X 2" and holds 42 cu. in. of easily accessable gear. Together they add and additional 80 plus cubic inches of storage to your pack. They are sized to be large enough to carry a small digital camera, GPS, snacks, sun screen or other items you need quick access too. Still they aren't so large as to get in your way.
