Please note these belts are from the Autumn 2016 production run and the sizing is slightly less than the Spring 2016 belts.

Updated at the beginning of 2016 the removable hipbelt with stiffer construction, stay coupler and larger pockets. Designed to carry weight more comfortably in the hips. This belt fits any of the previous model Dyneema and Robic Gorilla and Mariposa packs!

This hipbelt is designed specifically to be used on the latest version (2016) of Gorilla and Mariposa backpacks as the aluminium stay locates into the rear of the pocket, thus enabling better weight transfer.  Available in a variety of sizes and featuring our updated and larger integrated zippered pockets. The aluminum stay can now connect from the pack into this belt, making weight transfer more comfortable.

The belt can be used with any 2012 and newer Robic or Dyneema fabric packs without any modification.
