Adventure Belt Explained
The Adventure Hip Belt-our thickest padded belt offering two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle. Most comfortable for heavier loads or longer hikes.
The Adventure Hip Belt construction includes dual layers of foam padding with 38mm buckle and webbing. Works best with heavy load outs. Available in M-XXL sizes.
Athlete Belt Explained
The Athlete Hip Belt offers a slimmer profile with a single layer of foam padding with 25mm buckle and narrower webbing. This belt offers a more "minimalist" look and feel in comparison to the Adventure Hip Belt. Available in M-XL sizes.
**Medium back in stock**
The Travel Hip Belt (also known as the Haenisch Hip Belt) has no padding, just a soft wrap with 25mm buckle and webbing.
The Travel Hip Belt is available as an accessory only and is not included with a pack purchase. Available in Medium only. Large and X-Large are sold out.
Hip Belt Sizing
Sizing is based on "pants sizes". Generally speaking if you wear medium pants the medium belt will fit you and so on. Of note, both padding and webbing/straps get progressively larger as the hip belts go up in size. Between sizes size up.
Which belt is best for me?
That's really hard to say, it's such a personal choice. Generally speaking, you can get a tighter fit with the Adventure Hip Belt as it is designed for heavier loads. However, it's almost twice the weight and bulkier.
The Adventure Extender Clip
The Extender Clip adds 9" of additional length to your belt.
Get one if...you don't like the feeling of a buckle in the middle of your stomach, you need a belt longer than our XXL, if you are between sizes or need additional room for clothing layers, etc... **only available for the Adventure Hip Belt**
