Since the dawn of the traditional backpack, people all over the world have experienced the same uncomfortable sensation. Like there is a wild monkey pogo dancing inside the backpack. A monkey that makes the pack bounce up and down and swing from side to side. For decades, the industry has tried to stop the monkeys but with very limited success. Of course, we are not talking about real life monkeys. But we think it’s the perfect way to explain the difference between a USWE pack and the traditional backpacks. That ́s why we have named our patented harness technology to No Dancing Monkey™.
(Hey, by the way! We really like monkeys, but we try to keep them away from your back.)
That is our promise to you.
Our NDM technology is developed for action and performance sports. The technology works for both men and women in different sizes, but you need to add the action to feel the difference. The 4-point adjustment straps are there for you. It makes you adjust the perfect fit for your body. Its easy to do and it works 100%.
A backpack, like a glove, is worn and not carried. It is not a one size fits all kind of thing. It must be fitted to your body to give the ultimate performance. We set our own standards, based on our own real life – mud crawling testing and the input that we get from our awesome athletes. All this together, makes it possible for us to push our product development harder and more dedicated than any other brand
We measure size of our NDM 1.0 harness by using the "Chest Circumference" measurement. It's very easy to check your measurement and match it to the size of each pack. You simply measure 360 degrees around your chest under your breast (See picture for reference). You'll find the "Chest Fit Range" in the specifications tab.
When you set up your pack for the first time the harness will be set on the larger multi-size loop (the size loops are located where the stretch connect to the backpack). If a smaller size is needed make sure to use the inner size loop. After checking the size loop setting you start by using the horizontal velcro straps. Simply grab the straps on both sides at the same time, breathe in and set the strap where it fits.
Step 2: After setting the horizontal velcro straps you might have a perfect fit already. If you're for example a women with larger breasts or you’re use a chest protector you might need to change the vertical velcro straps. If that's needed simply grab the velcro straps and set them at a good lenght. For women we recommend using these straps at a lower strap setting. We also recommend placing the straps underneath the breasts for optimal comfort.
It is the unique shape and suspension of our No Dancing Monkey™ (NDM) harness systems that make our packs 100% bounce free.Its construction allows you to snug the packs really tight to the body, without affecting your breathing capacity or body movement. It is almost like wearing no pack at all.
The harness has our NDM tech buckle which easily clicks in place for an absolute snug and secure fit. It also comes equipped with integrated elastic straps that expand along with the chest during physical exertion, allowing a constant tight and compliant fit giving you freedom to breathe and move in action. It’s all super adjustable to give you that perfect tailored for you feel.
Secure. One hand operation.
