Lumbar Pad

Lumbar Pad

A removable lumbar pad that increases the fit range of our backpacks.  Perfect for curvy backs, large shoulders, and muscular builds.  

Our suspension has a reputation for comfort that has been earned through a lot of sweat.  We are extending that comfort to build types that have been challenges to fit in the past.  

  • Removable - does not change the hipbelt, only changes the fit and clearance of the hipbelt.
  • Helps folks with deep lumbars, curvy backs, large shoulders, or muscular builds get a superb fit.
  • Can be used with floating or captured belt.
  • Lumbar pad thickness is user changeable.


Captured Belt Mode - by wrapping the pack suspension around the hipbelt and then installing the lumbar pad, the hipbelt feel is changed dramatically.  It operates more like a traditional backpack, but with a tighter and grippier feel.  This also effectively raises shoulder lift and frame height by 1-2".

Weight - 2.5 oz

Note: The lumbar pad will work on the following Seek Outside Packs in the following configurations

  • Floating - all packs 
  • Captured - Only packs where the frame wrap is toward the wearers back. This would be most packs from 2017 and revo packs from July 2017 onward. Check before ordering. 

Dimensions:  9" Wide x 6" High x 1.5" Deep

    SO Lumbar Pad

    Posted by Trevor on 11th Dec 2017

    Great product. I sold my Osprey Atmos AG to avoid the constant suspension creep down my back. Obtained a better pack and installed this lumbar pad. It sits perfectly on my back and feels perfectly secure. I don’t feel the need to overtighten my waist strap to keep my pack on my hips any more.

    Helps with heavy loads

    Awesome addition for carrying heavy loads. I took it off when I was hauling my 117lbs of Bighorn Sheep just to see the difference. I immediately put it back on and will never take it off again. It just makes the already comfortable belt even better.

    Lumbar pad works!

    I've used my pack with the lumbar pad attachment just once, a relatively short (7 miles), but quite steep up and down (3k EG). The pad did the job!
