Aarn Expedition balance pockets

Converting to Daypack

  1. Lay the shoulder straps flat so you can have the chest strap right way up. The straps with the spring clips should be at the top; insert them into the inner-most top tabs and close the clips.
  2. Clip the two balance pockets together using the side buckles at top and bottom.
  3. Slide the bottom hooks to the tabs at the bottom of the pockets.
  4. Put the pack on and adjust the settings of the top and bottom webs in their respective buckles so that the chest strap sits at a comfortable height across your chest.
