Seek Outside backpack and "shoulder lift"

Postby seunghee » Fri Dec 20, 2019 6:25 am

Hello,
I'm seunghee Jung from South Korea and I bought a 5400 series custom backpack last month.
The backpack arrived here in South Korea via the United States.
The backpack is very good and I am very satisfied.
I will use this backpack for my large format film photography trip.

If you don't mind, I want to ask a question.

I read this article but I didn't understand what "shoulder lift" means. :roll:
Does it mean lifting the shoulder harness?
Please let me know.

Thanks,
seunghee

Yes it means lifting the harness off the shoulders so you are averaging weight on your hips

Thank you for your explanation. Now I understand exactly. :)

Can I ask you one more question?
I've heard that one feature of the Seek Outside backpack is the ability to adjust the angle of the load lifter.
Then, can I adjust the angle only by adjusting the height of the frame with frame extensions?

You can adjust the height of the frame and the little metal triglide on the harness (each shoulder strap )

It’s by the loops

Yes

Generally the frame at the bottom to mid ear height is the spot you are looking for and the triglide just forward of the top of your shoulder
