 Hip Belts for Skinny Dudes
Short of buying a new pack, does anyone have any suggestions to make a hip belt ride better on a skinny guy with no hips. 5' 10", 145, 31" waist. I can never seem to tighten the straps down enough without the belt bunching up. It's not terrible but I think that my shoulders are carrying too much weight.

It may be tough to find one around you, but if you can find a seamstress they should be able to alter your pack's waist belt or straps.

Or a cobbler. Don't know about your area, but there's one of each on Main Street in Concord and I would highly recommend either.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check it out with a seamstress to see what they can do, worth a shot. When I eventually get around to it I'll post some results.
