With one waist buckle and two fully adjustable leg loops, it's quick and easy to customise the fit and comfort as needed. The foam padding in the waist belt is also fully adjustable allowing the wearer to centre the tie-in loop and gear loops in accordance with their individual needs. The addition of Edelrid's own easy-glider buckles make adjustment a cinch.

Rounding off the package is the use of DuPont Hytrel protection at the tie-in loop to ensure smooth, abrasion resistant performance and a long usable life span as well as Edelrid's own Triad System; a unique sewing technique which allows the kettle webbing of the leg loops to lie flat against the body at all times providing an unbeatable fit.
The Jay is available from stores nationwide, with an RRP of £50 - £53.
