Backpack Sternum Strap

Availability: In stock


A simple comfort upgrade for our backpacks. Joins your shoulder straps to reduce fatigue

We designed our shoulder straps to be as comfortable as possible across a wide variety of shoulder widths, shapes and angles. Despite this a sternum strap upgrade is a good way to reduce fatigue across your shoulders. 


Our sternum strap attaches to both your shoulder straps, allowing you to pull them closer together. This helps adjust the angle of shoulder strap across your shoulders resulting in a more comfortable carry. In addition to this it also stops the feeling of your straps pulling apart from each other and "falling off" your shoulders.

Constructed from 25mm webbing it features dual slip-loc buckles so you can easily remove the strap should you wish. This also allows you to move the sternum strap up or down your shoulder strap. Unlike other backpack brand sternum straps, (if attached to our shoulder straps and bags) will not "creep" up the shoulder strap choking you at inopportune moments. We do this by having two to three "clipping" pockets on our shoulder strap.

Should you wish to be sneaky, this sternum strap can be used on other backpack brands. Use it on old backpacks that you have lost the sternum strap for, backpacks that never had a sternum strap, or even on our Dufflay for use in "backpack" mode! 


Buckles: 25mm
Webbing: 25mm polyester

Don't know how I've managed for so long without this. Didn't think I needed it, but you are right. It does make a world of difference.
