The easiest way to make a belt is to keep it flat. However, on the GENTO Duty Belt the sidepiece is molded with a 6 degree angle towards the back to allow it to follow the natural curvature of the spine and rest comfortably on the area between the lumbar and the buttock muscles. There is also a 4 degree twist in the sidepieces creating a conical shape, which further enhances the lumbar support.
There is comfortable padding all around, designed ergonomically, with a breathable outer mesh increasing the ventilation. Extra conical- shaped padding has been added to the back plate to give support and distribute pressure throughout the affected parts of the body. These features, along with the even weight distribution of equipment provided by the adjustable fit, reduce and may even eliminate long-term back problems encountered by those routinely carrying heavy loads.
On most existing solutions, the user must take the belt off, open a Velcro® flap, and then open the buckle to adjust the belt. In addition, the position of the gear mounted on the belt might have to be moved after the adjustment. With the GENTO Duty Belt, adjustments are easily made by pressing the release buttons on the back plate and then altering the fit. By making the adjustment on both sides at the back, symmetrical adjustment can be achieved, keeping the critical equipment mounted in front of the belt in the optimal position.
The adjustment mechanism contains an end-stop, which ensures that the belt cannot split or be removed accidentally.
The ease of adjustment is particularly relevant simply when there is a need for release around your waist.
