M4 Segmented Lumbar Wrap
Our M4 Lumbar Wrap is a light five-segment waistbelt system that effectively transfers medium sized loads through the wearer's hips and core. Internally, it contains two rigid plastic wings that are canted to the shape of your hips. These wings connect to the pack's mainframe through a sandwich of Velcro and plastic. This system works in concert with a given pack's specific framing: when the pack belt is pulled tight, the wings cinch to your hips, wrapping the pack-bag around the lumbar region of your back, engaging the frame for excellent weight distribution. This system reduces the kelp bed of tension straps and user error associated with the typical backpack tensioning systems in the industry. The M4 waist belt pads are built with 3/4” Matrix open cell foam. This provides breathability and the ideal amount of cushion for low-slung fire packs. These pads are enclosed in a spandura fabric wrap that gives a specific flex pattern, allowing both lateral stretch and vertical support. As with all Mystery Ranch belt systems, the pads are sized for the individual, and can be changed at any time.
