How do I adjust my Backenger 1st 20L?
To make it easier to transform it from shoulder strap bag to backpack, we recommend adjusting the Backenger so that the top part is level with the hip when worn as a shoulder strap bag. To adjust it remove the excess strap from the pocket then slide it into the rung and adjust the Backenger to your size. Finally, place the remainder strap into the pocket specifically designed for this purpose.
