72008How do i become a tester ?
- Nov 3, 2006I could not get to the link. Can someone send me the info to:
Also: I'd like to test a few Lumbar Packs. Is it possible to sign
up to test these ?
Background: I am looking at changing my system to carrying the
weight dense items (water, fuel, food) in a lumbar pack.
Everything else will be in light backpack. Even with light gear (my
baseweight is 8-10 pounds) when you add water/food/feul you get
up to 20 pounds or so. That's alot of weight on the shoulders- and
these lightweight packs just don't xfer this type of weight to the
hips. I've talked w/ a chiropracter about this approach: the less
weight on shoulders, the less strain on everything between your
shoulders & hips.
I've tested a few lumbar packs alrdy.
Goal: To make backpacking as comfortable as possible by easing wear
& tear on the back. Moving the weight to the hips will help
