MRS Thigh Straps 5P

Ergonomically cut and fully adjustable 2x5 thigh straps to be mounted in the boat as thigh and shoulder straps. The central Velcro connection between the thigh straps makes it easy to get in and out of the leg loops without having to open the spraydeck. For all packrafts.


Thigh straps are primarily meant for effective control in the boat (by bracing and edging), up to the point of rolling it. The ergonomic design offers a high degree of comfort and control. 

Construction

The ergonomically cut 2x5-point thigh straps enclose the knee from two sides to provide excellent support. The straps are fully adjustable by four ladders (included) and the four adjustable straps on each of the thigh straps and also removable.

The special shape and wide supports of the MRS 5-point thigh straps ensure a pleasant driving feeling without pressure points even when they sit tightly. In addition to the 4 points that fix the leg loop to the side tubes of the boat, there is an additional 5th point for these thigh straps.
 
This represents the connection between the two thigh straps and is only fixed in the middle by a short Velcro fastener on the loops. In a dangerous situation this connection is released and the paddler can get out of the boat. During normal use, however, the central fixation ensures the correct position of the thigh straps. This makes it possible to get in and out of the leg loops even with the spraydeck closed. These loops can also be used as hand straps to carry the packrafts.
 
Use

Being a kayaker by origin you will hardly quest the use of thigh straps.

Being a beginner however, one should not overestimate its function. Packrafts in general are primarily designed for use without them. We recommend to start that way. Up to medium grades of white water there is no limitation for sure. Please note, a packraft generally has a thight fit!

Indications you may want thigh straps are: playboating (riding waves and holes), white water higher than grad III, top heavy loads in whitewater higher than class II.

However, they also are a good shoulder padding for carrying a partly packed boat. It transforms a packraft into a backpack itself.

Selection

Unless the boat is prepared in this respect (like the Alligator 2S Pro) 4 special strap loops (contains strap Loops extra strong) and 4 daisy chains must be selcted in the menu. 

Glue is to be selected for self construction (recommended for individual positions). Otherwise, the service can booked in the workshop section.
