Additional Information

Patagonia’s Tumpline helps to suspend all or part of a pack’s load from the top of the head, thereby alleviating pressure on one’s shoulders and hips. Requiring practice to perfect its use, tumplines have been in use in various forms for thousands of years.

Perfect for avid hikers who take pleasure in being out of step with the technological age, Patagonia’s Tumpline is a simple strap, with ancient origins, that helps transfer the weight of a backpack from the shoulders to the head, neck, and down the center of the back. To use the tumpline, place the wide part of the strap across the top of the head and loop the narrower part around the pack and adjust it with the nylon buckle. It took Patagonia’s founder weeks to build up enough muscle strength to use the tumpline properly, so it requires patience. Hand-wash cold, no bleach, line dry, do not iron.

Patagonia Tumpline is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Guiding Used this as a guide in Maine, and N.H. I worked with a Sherpa for a summer and he used his own rope tumpline. Used it to carry 70 pond loads. This is a great tool to carry any loads. No sore hips or shoulders at the end of the day. Yes also no sore neck or head! I still use it even on my McHale pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tumplines Work This tump is designed to assist with carrying a backpack which it does well. I use an external frame pack and it allowed me to shift the load between hips shoulders and head. I would like Patagonia to make a traditional tump with 10 foot straps. They work well when canoe trekking.
