There are so many new
features on the Rolltop Backpack, can you explain what they are and how they
have a great illustration that calls out all the features and names for easy
reference. Please reference the illustration and feature video below.
I put my pack on, I need to adjust the shoulder straps smaller. How can I
adjust them to fit my body?
Our no-flapping strap
system is set up on a looped cam buckle that is set at the waist first and the
shoulder strap loop second. Find the "torso sizing cam" above on the
illustration and then again on your own pack. We have marked the strap
towards the back lumbar area with screen printed sizing marks (S - XXL)
that corresponds to common jacket sizes. If you wear a "Large" jacket
size, start by adjusting the strap to "L" and click the lower locking
cam buckle closed. Tuck any loose strap into and under the lumbar pad.
This sets the loop size on the shoulder strap. If you need a smaller adjustment
than the size indicator, no problem - simply keep pulling the webbing in and
trying it on until you get a tight fit. Adjustments are infinite, but once you
find your sizing, you should be able to set it and forget it. Seasonal wear may
effect your overall sizing, so be sure to remember to adjust in/out for
summer or winter sport needs.
For everyday adjustments
and taking the pack on/off, use the upper locking cam buckles to wear your pack
looser for walking around comfortably or adjusting for a tighter fit for high
speed pursuits. The proper spot for the pack to sit on your body is higher
up on your back, with the front harness rotating grommets sitting on top of
your clavicle. The magnetic coupler should sit over your sternum bone,
size bladder can fit into the hydration sleeve?
We have tested the fit
with as large as a 3L bladder, but a 1-1.5L bladder is ideal. Bladder
reservoirs that are either more square in shape or have an internal structure
to make them flatter shaped when filled, prove to be a better fit. There is a
small velcro loop near the hydration sleeve opening that you can hook your
hydration bladder into so that it does not slide down as you drink from
it. The hydration bladder shown in the pic is a favorite of ours, the Hydrapak Shape Shift
do I attach my GoPro camera mount or similar personal video mount?
We created a mounting
platform for personal camera mounts to adhere onto. We suggest cleaning the
surface with an alcohol pad first before adhering your adhesion mounting pad.
3M makes reliable double-sided sticky pads, if you need to purchase one for
your mount plate. Some adhesions will require you to rough up the surface with
sandpaper first before adhering. With any camera mounting system, we
strongly recommend tying a safety cord from your camera and into the safety
loop located on the shoulder strap for extra protection.
do you connect and release the Mag sternum coupler?
We use a rotating magnet
coupler. Simply twist until you feel/hear the release. Do not pull or over-twist
the silver disk, as there is a single small area of release when twisted and it
will release when it reaches the point of release. To re-connect,
simply place the two pieces in close proximity to one another and the
magnets will click together. No need to twist the buckle to connect, let
the magnets do their magic!
the backpack and tool roll washable?
Yes. Hand washing in cold
with gentle detergent will retain the shape and is recommended. In our all our
packs, each compartment has an internal liner that can pull out to wipe
down. Air-dry fully before tucking the liner back in. Air-dry the tool roll.
the backpack waterproof?
We like to call our
pack "water tight", as it is not submersible. The fabric is a 1000
denier 66 nylon with a heavy TPU lamination on the back and a kiss coating on
the frontside. We have field tested our pack in the worst weather conditions
and due to our seam construction, fold over pockets, and roll top, the pack
proves to be water tight and fast drying.
