ATLAS ATHLETE BELT

Why a fitted hip belt?
Finding the right size is easy. Checkout the fitting chart and follow the steps. The most important measurement is to make sure the padding is long enough to cover your hips. If the padding falls short, then the weight of the pack will not properly transfer away from your shoulders and load on to your hips
Option 1: Pants Size
Choose hip belt size based on your pants size. This is the easiest way and works 95% of the time. If you are between sizes, then use the other options.
Option 2: Measure Hip Span
Measure the span of your hips, just the length needed for the padding to cover both (end to end) plus a few smidges. Still unsure? Size up!
