Mountain Hardwear Launches New Hoverbelt Technology

Mountain Hardwear Launches New Hoverbelt Technology

Mountain Hardwear’s new hoverbelt technology multi-day hiking packs feature a revolutionary pivoting belt. The brand continues to expand from just climb inspired packs to more general outdoor and multi-day excursion gear.

Multi-directional hip belt aids dynamic movement and comfort.

The hover hip belt attaches to a spring steel frame by four points allowing it dynamic movement. Most importantly it enables side-to-side motion to follow the natural gait of a hiker. The back panel and hip belt feature a blend of tighter and more open air mesh to maximise breathability.

We were determined to elevate a long-standing pack innovation – the pivoting hipbelt – and better integrate it with a trampoline back panel, since the construction of one has historically impacted the effectiveness of the other With a unique attachment of four tethered points, not only does the hip belt move in a wider range of motion but it also more seamlessly integrates into the trampoline back panel without having to be directly attached, elevating the user’s comfort and carry experience with the increased range of motion.
