This is a brief explanation of the instructions on how to assemble the hip belt that comes with your Arcteryx Bora 95 backpack. Below, we will walk through the 4 steps that are included on the illustration from the Arcteryx website, which you can download from this link – How To Assemble Arcteryx Bora Hipbelt. It is not a difficult process, but there is no explanation that accompanies the guide. Since there are no words describing what goes on, I have walked through the assembly process enough to add a few helpful comments below. Let’s get started.
The first step to assembling the hip belt is to fold down the lower back support as shown in the image below. There is Velcro that attaches this pad to the backpack, so you just pull it down and it will reveal a Velcro attachment platform.
With the Velcro attachment revealed, line the hip belt up against the 2 dark Velcro straps and press firmly. Velcro on the back and front of the hip belt will attach the back to the pack.
Lift the bottom flap up that you pulled down in step 1 and press firmly to attach it to the Velcro.
Filter the straps through the plastic guides and tighten against your pack. These straps are the Load Transfer adjustment straps, and govern the tightness that your backpack transfers the weight to your hips.
To dis-assemble, reverse the steps in sequence, and viol la! Hopefully this helps. If you don’t have your Arcteryx Bora 95 Pack yet, click the link to purchase one.
