The R35 needs an initial set-up on purchase. From then on you just need to zip in and out. To set-up, please follow the fitting instructions below:
1 – back off all 4 x alloy buckles. Lift & pull nylon-cord to release the friction in the buckles.
2 – Put on pack and zip up chest harness.
3 – Hold the chest harness in the desired position and then tighten the lower hip-wing alloy buckles until the wings grip on your torso.
4 – Adjust top alloy buckles if necessary. The top harness straps should not be tight, just a close fit.
5 – R35 pack is now ready… just zip in and out. If necessary adjust the lower 2 alloy buckles as the load changes.
Add 5-litre capacity by adding a US-5 drypack (see US-5 link below).
Fitting instructions: Thread the 2 x US-5 fitting straps through the square rings on the front of the R35
