There are some tree planters who have very small hips, or those who like to carry all their weight on their hip belt. These hip belt doublers add another layer of padding to your bags, increasing your level of comfort. They have velcro on both sides, so they are easily applied and removed. If you're a planter with small hips or just don't use your shoulder straps, consider the Bushpro Padded Hip Belt Doubler today. For belts that are older than 2008, please visit our link here.
