  1. Thank you for sharing as I ALWAYS struggle to properly setup the straps on my packs. I use military and “tactical” packs that come with a MOLLE system (or extreme daisy straps for lack of a better term). They’re great for adding extra pouches for gear like my first aid kit. As always keep up the amazing work Hayley.

    1. Your pack sounds like it could walk itself on a hike, why have they not invented this? 😛 as always thank you for commenting 😄😄

  2. Wow that’s super helpful! I always noticed so many straps on my pack but never knew what some was for…Hip belt is definitely most important for multi day hikes

  3. hey good Vid luv.. edumcational for sure. i feel ya on ‘bustin the top strap’ when throwin the packs on! keep em comin 🙂

    1. Haha we love an edumcational video 😛 we are now in a battle of the handles, who’s will break first 🤣

  4. Great stuff Hayley! Don’t think I’ll ever remember the proper terminology though 🤣 It’ll be more like, “Yeah, you know, the strappy thingy that goes around your waist”, or “Yeah, you can tighten that strap thingy on the top of your shoulders”, or “Umm… what the hell does that strap do??” 🤪
