Todd agreed to go on an all day hike with Lindsey. They had been seeing each other for a few weeks and this seemed like a great idea. Todd picked up a backpack from a department store; it was expensive and it looked great. He laughed when he saw Lindsey’s waist pack. It was smaller, and had a non-traditional style. He stopped laughing two hours into the hike when his shoulders and back were aching and Lindsey was still going strong. Lindsey wore a High Sierra Diplomat Lumbar Pack and stayed comfortable all through the day.
Lindsey is an avid hiker so she knew what to look for when choosing a hiking pack. The pack is constructed with Grid-Weave Duralite, Mini-Weave Duralite and 600-Denier Duralite so the lumbar pack is both very light and extra durable. The adjustable and detachable shoulder strap gives you more ways to find the right fit. The Tuck-away waist belt with webbing keepers also adjusts to fit and the adjustable compression straps keep the contents in the pack secure. Todd struggled all day long trying to adjust his back pack and keep things in place. The High Sierra Diplomat Lumbar Pack fits waist sizes 24” to 55” and is easy to adjust.
The hydration waist pack kept Lindsey cool and hydrated all day long. It is equipped with two 500mL GE LEXAN shatter-resistant bottles. The VAPEL mesh AIRFLOW padded pack panel wicks body moisture away from the hiker and provides superior comfort. Todd’s backpack got hot and heavy so his back was saturated with sweat halfway through the day.
The High Sierra Diplomat Lumbar Pack is easy to load up. It is a top load pack with two main compartments, one has a key fob and the other is equipped with a CD/MP3 player pocket and PVC headphone port. There are two side mesh water bottle pockets so it’s easy to grab a drink, find your keys or listen to music whenever you want.
Enjoy the Hike
Todd found out that a good pair of shoes and the right pack can make all the difference. He knew about the importance of shoes and after his first hike with Linsey he ordered The High Sierra Diplomat Lumbar Pack. He likes the colors–Chipotle/Tungsten/Black and he loves the comfort. The following month they hiked and did some climbing. The lumbar pack has a hinged front pocket that adjusts to hold a helmet or other gear. The impact and freeze resistant hardware had a chance to prove itself on that hike. When they took a night hike, they used the reflective loop to hold a bike LED blinker.
You can order the High Sierra Diplomat Lumbar Pack online and be ready to hit the trail in no time. The waist pack has a 550 cubic inch capacity or could hold nine liters. The overall dimensions are 9.5 inches high by 12 inches wide by 3 inches deep.
