And if I am not using those pouches I still have the original beltfastenings and they fit my belt as well. The belt's a bit narrow, but that doesn't matter too much I think.
Things were starting to come together now...
All I needed to do now was to testfit the pack and start to adjust the several belts and straps. Which incidentally is quite easy with the ingenius system the German developped. You can adjust the straps, while you are actually wearing the gear. By bending open the clasp you loosen the clasp from the strap and move it up and down as required. Bending it shut jams the strap in place.
and with the wastebelt ------>
The black webbing bands rest on the shoulder blades and on top of the pelvis, making it quite comfortable to wear.
The backpouch remains free even with a loaded pack.
In the righthand picture I still needed to adjust the leather belt.....
