Advance Paragliding back pack Easypack 2  COMFORTPACK 4 AUD$275 in stock

The new COMFORTPACK 4 is a state-of-the-art paraglider backpack, which excels through its  high carrying comfort, slender shape and outstanding design. Its trapezoid back design allows for good packing and easy closing even for bulky harnesses with foam protectors.

It sits perfectly on the back due to its slender and compact shape. The adjustable hip strap with a tightening buckle each side gives the  backpack the best hold-up grip, and the shaped shoulder straps spread the weight evenly on the shoulders. 

The trapezoid back shape gives the COMFORTPACK 4 the volume where you need it, namely in the small of the back,  where the main support strap is widest and thickest. An internal compression strap in the same place also allows the harness foam protector to be compressed effectively, and this works especially well with the ADVANCE SUCCESS 5 and IMPRESS 4  harnesses. The main zip can then easily be closed without a struggle.

Colour : Grey primary with Blue and Yellow panels as shown below

Comes in 3 sizes - 100L, 115L, 130L and 145L
