A backpack harness system is a combination of backpack, Harness
Shoulder Straps, and hip or waist belt that offers the facility
to carry a backpack. Fully functional backpack designs can also
have an internal High Density Polyethylene Frame Sheet, an Internal
Frame, or maybe a combination of both. These harness systems should
also include adjustable Harness Shoulder Straps to allow for differing
torso lengths and body types, a sternum strap, Upper and Lower Load
Stabiliser Straps, and a comfortable Lumbar Pad.
These are the key components that make up a Harness System that
when design well and fitted correctly provide a truly balanced backpack.
This synergy of backpack engineering is achieved over many years
of field-testing, which is ever evolving and led by companies that
commit themselves to building the better backpack. However, these
backpacks will only function as the manufacturer intended in correctly
fitted or customized backpacks.
