Hiking and backpacking bring their own special joys but also their own burdens. The AG AntiGravity™ backsystem seeks negate these burdens with its innovative design.
Firstly there is ventilation, or the lack thereof. It could literally be raining sideways as you hike up yet another hill yet you still feel the heat throughout your body. This is natural. Your body is working hard to help you achieve your goals. What is less than natural though is the heat you feel on your back due to the pack and load you are carrying. The trampoline sprung mesh of the AG AntiGravity™ backsystem provides a layer of air between your body and the backpack meaning that even in the most hot and humid conditions you’ll have the maximum level of ventilation.
The second inevitable by-product of hiking and backpacking is the necessity to carry all your required equipment and food on your back. The AG AntiGravity™ backsystem challenges that exact necessity by evenly distributing the weight throughout the lumbar and lower back meaning that your body’s strongest muscles do the hardest work, the legs, do the hardest work. This means avoiding those sore spots, or 'hot points', on your shoulder blades and keeping your body as naturally aligned to the weight as possible.
