So REI has a huge overstock sale and they have the Mountain Hardwear Lightweight Hipbelt for cheap. I have an Osprey Aether 70L backpack and was wondering if I could use the Mountain Hardwear hipbelt in the Osprey backpack? Will it fit or is it a different size/shape?
The hipbelt unclips, it seems to be removable. I'm on the east coast so no REI :(
There are Plenty of REI's on the East Coast.
Hipbelts have different ways of being secured. REI packs tend to use Velcro whereas osprey has clips. they wont be interchangeable but REI does carry REI, Osprey and Gregory Hip belts. It's possible to have a long torso and a narrow waist. So you would get a Large pack and a small or Med hipbelt.
