The vertically-adjustable back strap system grows with the child. It provides for an ideal fit during all growth stages and support and relief by shifting the weight to the hips.
The 4 elements of the Scout back strap system.
Additional strap for ideal fit in the shoulder area.
Simple back strap adjustment, accesible through a zipper.
Integrated, vertically-adjustable chest belt helps to hold the shoulder straps constantly in place.
Removable hip belt allows to shift the weight to the hips.
The perfect fit in 5 easy steps.
1. Open the strap-system.
Open the zip on the back of the schoolbag.
Unblock the adjustment button by turning it to the left (e.g. with a coin).
2. Try the schoolbag on.
Loosen all straps.
Put the schoolbag on the child’s back.
3. Adjust the straps.
Adjust the hip belt (positioning on the hips) and fix it.
Draw the shoulder straps – attention: the main weight should be on the hips! With the help of the additional straps, make any further minor adjustments.
Close the chest belt.
4. Adjust the back support system.
The upper part of the bag should be at shoulder level. Guidance:
S = for small kids with shorter torso (up to 110 cm),
