Hi, I’m Falko from ORTLIEB. Today I would like to show you the Attachment kit for Gear. The Attachment kit for Gear is one of the many accessories for the Atrack. Others include a mounting kit for trekking poles, pads for fixing skis and compression straps with mounts for fixing any equipment to the front of the backpack. I will now show you how to fix the different systems. Let’s start with the Attachment kit for trekking poles. The part with the strap at the base is for the lower mounting. It consists of a strap and a buckle. First open the buckle by pressing it together. Once open, I insert the strap from this side through the Daisy-Chain. Then I close the hook and loop fastener, pull the loop over the lever, close the lever until it locks with a cklick The top mounting consists of an elastic cord and a hook and loop fastener, so the part doesn’t get lost, same here, I fix it into a Daisy-Chain. Now I take the trekking poles and fix them first at the lower end. The loop is adjustable in size, so trekking poles with large or small baskets will securely fix to the pack. Now we fix the upper side, take the hook, clip it and pull it tight. Now your trekking poles are securely fixed
to the backpack. To release, simply push the button and remove your poles. Now I will show you the front compression straps, they are designed for fixing all sorts of equipment like a sleeping mattress, skis, snowboard
or skateboard etc. It consists of straps and mounting parts. First I open the compression straps on the front. Then, depending on the size of your gear, I choose the position and where to place the mounting elements. In my case with the skateboard I place them a little bit closer to one another. I fix the mounting parts in the Daisy-Chains, take care with the closure strap,
it should be under the mountings. The compressions straps will help in keeping the mounts in place. Now I take the T-hooks, turn them and insert them from the top into the mounting ends. Don’t forget to tighten the compression straps and confirm your mounts are securely fixed. Then I take the compression strap, consisting of a buckle for opening and closing and two oval toggles. The two toggles serve for adjusting the distance
and for positioning – depending on your gear. A skateboard is relatively narrow, therefore I choose two openings close to the center of the backpack. Insert them into the opening from the top and turn them. What’s nice about this system is the fact that you can still change the position and move the strap until it’s all in the right place. Then you place the skateboard on the pack and close the buckle. I recommend you also use the safety clamp so the buckle won’t open accidently. This is really important when you are fixing skis. For diagonal ski mounting you can also use the compressions straps, however, the straps are then fixed at a different diagonal position. One toggle here and the other one on the other side of the Daisy-Chain, directly here, so you end up with a little loop. Then you repeat the same procedure
down here on the opposite side, and your skis are diagonally fixed, nice and tight. If you prefer mounting your skis to the sides, we offer these patches as webbing protectors, that you simply fix on the sides. Please visit our website
