Handy to have
I purchased these along with the Tour 2020 pack as a gift for my dad! They are basically lumbar pack suspenders. If he is going for a light hike then he does not need to use the strapettes. However, once the load goes above 10 lbs or so, or if he is carrying a lot of water on an all-day hike, then the strapettes get put on. He says they make the load much more comfortable. He loves this system because it prevents his back from sweating as much as it would if he was wearing a normal backpack! They stow nicely in the pack without taking up much room or putting on much weight so he can always bring them just in case he needs them. They are quite handy to have with the Tour.
Nothing but It would be cool if they made strapettes in colors that matched the packs
Does the job it's intended for
Pretty comfortable, and straightforward to use
I bought these along with the Mountainsmith Day lumbar pack. The Strapettes definitely made the pack more comfortable, and easier to wear so in that sense it did the trick. The straps can have a tendency to get "crossed up" if not paying attention. Ultimately I ended up returning the lumbar pack so I had no need for these, and returned them as well.
Must have addition for the Mountainsmith day pack. Attaches easy for great additional support.
