Is there any way that backpack hip belt...
Is there any way that backpack hip belt damage jacket when wearing heavy stuff since it do not have traditional hip belt? How this pack carry ski or board since I do not see it as a good support pack to carry heavy stuff. Thx
I can see that unpadded waist belt wearing through shell over time. That surprises me, considering the premium you pay for Arc'teryx.
For high activity and heavy weight I'd stick with a proper padded waist belt.
Agree with you Pat.
I wonder how comfortable is pack when wearing ski or snowboard and using non padded waist belt.
This pack is not meant for that. It's a minimalist pack. I have an early version (the RT25) with an unpadded belt. I wouldn't worry about wearing a shell unless you are really overloading the pack.
