Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Perfect for avid hikers who take pleasure in being out of step with the technological age, Patagonia's Tumpline is a simple strap, with ancient origins, that helps transfer the weight of a backpack from the shoulders to the head, neck, and down the center of the back. To use the tumpline, place the wide part of the strap across the top of the head and loop the narrower part around the pack and adjust it with the nylon buckle. It took Patagonia's founder weeks to build up enough muscle strength to use the tumpline properly, so it requires patience. Hand-wash cold, no bleach, line dry, do not iron.
