Micron Spacer Foam / Back Pack / Padding options

Recommended Posts

Could someone please explain the difference between the 3-D spacer foam, deluxe backpack and the padded stabilizer options on the Micron?

I’ve checked the options guide on the RWS web page and understand the 3-D spacer foam, but what do the other 2 options offer? Can't see any info on them.

A brief explanation from someone would be fantastic!

Here are pictures of the 3d spacer foam and the padded stabilizers. The Deluxe Backpad is just extra foam sewn inside the backpad (between the backpad and the main and reserve containers) so you really can't see it. The padded stabilizers is Bill Booths version of the "Cut-in Laterals" available on other manufacturer's containers. The reasoning for not offering cut in's is that bill thinks that cut in laterals create a potential snag point at the bottom corners of the container where a line could catch if you deploy unstable. With the padded stabilizers, the stabs still come to the edge of the main container (thus eliminating the snag point) and only the laterals (the webbing that goes from hip to hip) is cut in and padded. On other versions, both the stabilizer and the lateral is cut in.
