Compression Shirts And Shoulder Pain

Military/Tactical Style Backpack

The Kelty 128 Eagle is a big and burly pack that combines heavy hauling capabilities, many options for organization and has maximum access for all tear round performance. The Eagle 128 can be set up to your needs based on the situation and conditions you might encounter.

Description

The Eagle 128 has a large and cavernous 7850 cubic inches of space inside of this pack. You can put your hands on your gear in moments with a top loading entry and front panel access points that make getting into the pack a breeze. There is a zippered divider that is between the main compartment and the sleeping bag compartment. This allows for separation of dry and wet gear and gives you more organizational control. If you need to haul larger items or need access between the two compartments just unzip the divider that converts the two compartments into a single compartment. The Eagle also has two large and removable side pockets and there is a zippered internal mesh wall that will keep gear from falling out when you open the zippered front panel.

Suspension System

The Kelty Eagle has an adjustable suspension system that works well with torsos in the 16" - 22" in length. The 128 has two aluminum stays working in tandem with a spacer mesh back panel and an HDPE frame sheet which creates comfort, strength and stability when it is on your back. The waist belt is a padded, two layer design with quick release shoulder straps. There are also load lifter straps with an adjustable sternum strap that enhances how the Eagle fits to you. Kelty uses a patented method to tighten the waist belt called the Scherer Cinch that uses a pulley system that doubles the force when tightening the waist belt which helps to keep a lot more of the weight on your hips. Add to this side compression straps with an integrated spindrift collar to give you adjustability for varying loads and you have a very sophisticated suspension system.

The Eagle 128 has zippered access via a top hood lid to internal pockets. This lid can be removed and changed into shoulder strap pack organizer or into a lumbar pack. A secondary low profile hood is revealed when the top lid is removed which protects the interior of the 128 from the outside elements. There is also a sand/rain pack cover that is included which adds further protection. There are two exit ports that facilitate a hydration system that comes with reservoir sleeves to make this pack hydration compatible.

This pack features 500 denier and 100 denier Nylon Kodra body fabric in the construction of this backpack. This pack is also compatible for use with the Kelty satellite radio holder which is sold separately.

The dimensions of this pack are 44" x 29" x 17.5" (112cm x 74cm x 44cm). The volume is 7,850 cu. inches or 128L. If you are using the low profile hood and no side pockets, the volume is 6,285 cu. inches or 103L. The complete pack weight is 11 lbs 2oz or 5kg. Using the low profile hood the weight is 9 lbs 4oz or 4kg.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a military style pack that has it all and don't mind the price then this is the pack for you. The capabilities of this pack will probably be beyond what most people would need but if you are one of those who hike or travel on extended outings then you will like this pack.

compression shirts and shoulder pain

  1. How to protect both shoulders?
    I injured both my shoulders this year playing rugby and although I am going to be doing physical therapy I was wondering if there was a way to get some additional support/protection for my shoulders when I return to play. The main problems I’ve been encountering are 1) I’m a girl and most shoulder supports strap directly across the chest, which presents a bit of a problem and 2) I need to protect both shoulders at the same time, which doesn’t seem possible with shoulder braces/supports. I was wondering if a padded compression shirt might work better, but I’d like input from others who may have more knowledge.
    When I talked about having issues with supports that aren’t designed for women I meant stuff more like shoulder braces (as in, not padded shirts).

    • Sure there must be a padded shirt made for women rugger that takes breasts into the fit. Best thing to do is work on cardio fitness and let them heal. Once you can increase your strain on the shoulders build those muscles so they work as padding as well and keep the joint strong and together. Throughout playing in school I repeatedly injured both shoulders and played with pain and discomfort but they never fully heal until I stopped playing for a few years rehabbed the joints and was able to build some more muscular deltoids and traps ….

  2. How to give a good massage?
    Ok well my BF plays football and he gets beat up alot lol and so his back actually his whole body gets sore alot so i need to know how to give the best massage ever for his back and the rest of his body too thanks

    • If your friend has shoulder pain, for example, Things like rubbing where the pain is, or doing compression on the upper shoulders might feel good, but the funny thing is, finding the area to massage in order to release muscle pain isn’t as easy as just applying pressure on the area where it hurts.

      If you have no formal training than just remember that if you relieve the tension of the supporting muscles groups around the painful area, it will help free-up & relax that muscle……..let say again like for the upper shoulders : by relieving tension in the entire back(especially around the ‘Shoulder Blades’, to increase the range of motion of the shoulder joint), it will helps free-up & relax the upper shoulders muscle pain……….and if you watch these videos it might help you begin to better understand!!

      The first website is of Thai Massage which is best to use if the person you massaging needs to stay fully clothed and the second website is of Swedish Massage which need to be done with the person’s shirt removed, in order to massage the back & shoulders.

  3. PULLED MUSCLE PLEASE HELP! IN PAIN!?
    I workout about 2-3 days per week. I don’t lift excessive amounts of weight, but I do tone my body. So about a week ago I noticed a small amount of pain in my right bicep about a day after my last workout. I stopped working out, figuring that caused it. Over the next few days, the pain has gotten worse and worse. Now I cannot even lift my elbow above my shoulder without a severe amount of pain.

    I think I may have pulled/torn my rotator cuff. I don’t really know for sure though, the pain I am experiencing feels as if it is just above my bicep.

    Standing up, bent back parallell to the ground. i can swing my arm around in a circle BUT it hurts if i let gravity pull my arm down. If i keep my shoulders up it doesn’t hurt.

    If i shrug my shoulders it hurts alot and I can’t put on a shirt without feeling this tremendous pain!

    Pleaseeeee help me with what I am experiencing and also how to treat it and how long it takes to heal! Thank you so much in advance.

    *So far I have been icing it daily, applying heat, and wrap for compression*

  5. How do you give a shoulder massage?
    I’ve never really understood where you’re suppposed to apply pressure. Are you supposed to press the part between the shoulder and neck?

    • While compression on the upper shoulders does feel good, the funny thing is, finding the area to massage in order to release muscle pain isn’t as easy as just applying pressure on the area where it hurts.

      When you relieve the tension of the supporting muscles of the entire back(especially around the ‘Shoulder Blades’, to increase the range of motion of the shoulder joint), it will helps free-up & relax the upper shoulders muscle pain……….and if you watch these videos it might help you begin to better understand!!
