The Aarn Natural Balance PRO Dyneema Body Pack will be a revelation to hikers young and old, both in terms of weight and comfort. Each Aarn pack has numerous innovations, first and foremost being the world's first body-centred load carrying system. Regular backpacks force you to lean forward and create a rearward pull on your shoulders, increasing relative loads and making body movements unwieldy. When used with Balance Pockets (sold separately) Aarn packs evenly-distribute weight on the hips and shoulders, eliminating rearward pull to maintain your upright posture. This revolutionary system is biomechanically the most practical and healthy way to carry weight.
The new PRO Dyneema Packs and Balance pockets use a lightweight gridstop dyneema to reduce weight and increase durability. They also look amazing in the grey.
Aarn's patented flow motion systems interlink the U-Flow webbing and hip belt pivots so that your torso can move freely while the load remains stable. It feels wonderful! Another great feature is the fully waterproof Dri-Liner, custom fitted with a roll-down seal to ensure your gear stays dry. More - the back length is adjustable while wearing the pack!
The Natural Balance is Aarn's Fast & Light specialist pack, with a full Custom-Fit hip belt in three sizes (comes with Medium but can be swapped out - call for details). Th. With a roll-down top, stretch mesh pockets and several attachment points, the FF is easy to use. It has the full Custom-Fit hip belt and Custom-Mould frame, and is the perfect size for longer multi-day hikes.

Sample Facebook Testimonials
Amanda Warriner - 5★ "I spent close to 3 hours in this store today, being fitted for and choosing a pack, and the staff are fantastic. Helpful, knowledgeable, patient and friendly - and I think I'm probably a fussy customer and I have difficulty finding packs that fit comfortably. Has to be my best experience in this kind of store to date."
Tom Brickhill - 5★ "My favourite outdoor shop in Sydney. This is where you go if you want to see gear stocked because of it's quality, not just because it's corporate overload has pumped out another 10,000 puffer jackets that need to be moved before next season. Knowledgeable staff that actually partake in trekking and travelling themselves. Definitely worth dropping in!"
Adam Jude Baus - 5★ "Always friendly, helpful staff with great knowledge. Great range of good quality products (nothing really low end) including Australian/NZ brands e.g. Wilderness Equipment, One Planet and Aarn. Never had a fuss with exchanging unused gear within the 2 week period."
