Guide to AthletiPack Webbing

 The AthletiPack has 2 strap systems: Elastic & Non-elastic. 

The elastic webbing can be configured in two ways, Dual shoulder and Single shoulder. It is customizable due to the keyring design (just twist the strap off). Watch the instructional video here to see it in action.
