The patent is filed for a pack with a main compartment and compression panels
A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230276925A1) describes a new design for a pack that is worn on the back of a person. The pack includes a main compartment that extends along the person's back, with left and right shoulder supports and chest panels. The pack also features left and right compression panels that extend along the sides of the person and can be cinched using a main compartment cinching system.
The main compartment cinching system includes left and right cinch cords and cinch cord retainers located along the sides of the pack. When the pack is worn, the cinch cords can be pulled to compress the main compartment and cinch the compression panels around the person's torso. This design allows for a secure and adjustable fit.
The patent also describes additional features of the pack, such as the joining of the chest panels and compression panels, the formation of pockets between the compression panels and the main compartment, and the use of cord locks to retain the cinch cords in a cinched state. The pack may also include pockets to conceal the pull portions of the cinch cords.
Another embodiment of the pack includes a main compartment cinching system that draws and compresses the rear side of the main compartment towards the person's back. This system includes cord locks and cinch cords connected to the main compartment and extending along the chest panels. The compression panels are secured to the rear side of the main compartment and can be cinched towards the front of the person wearing the pack.
Overall, this patent describes a pack design that offers improved comfort and adjustability for the wearer. The main compartment cinching system and additional features provide a secure fit and allow for customization based on the wearer's preferences. This pack design could be beneficial for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, and anyone in need of a reliable and adjustable backpack.
