For even more relief for your shoulders, replace the wedge cushion by the thickly padded Fiedler hip belt.
No tools are required for mounting the hip belt. Just check for the presence of an additional pair of D-rings on the sides of the case, slightly above the bottom D-rings, to which the shoulder straps are attached. An assembly kit with two D-rings and screws is supplied with the hip belt.
- The hip belt can´t be used in combination with the wedge cushion! Alternating use is of course possible.
- A case has to have a certain length in order to allow for a proper installation of the Fiedler backpack system with hip belt. Cases such as violin cases or guitar cases are too short.
