In conjunction with input from the end user and SME’s in the back country hiking industry Crossfire Australia recently designed and tooled the DG frame set a COT injected-moulded polymer frame. Based on the feedback provided from both training and combat we were able to develop a frame that will flex at the same rate as the human back. Too little flex, forces the hips and shoulders to fight with every stride. Fatiguing. Overflexing forces the shoulders to fight angular momentum as the load swings wide with each step.
The DG frame set flexes just right, hips and shoulders move freely, stride is longer and less exhausting. Active ventilation keeps things cool. The frame is designed to incorporate CBA in the frame system reducing torsional instability. The harness system can be quickly set at different levels to accommodate different torso lengths.
Shoulder straps are shaped and tapered to work over CBA and smoothly transfer load away from the brachial plexus nerve group. The whole shoulder harness yoke assembly can be quickly extended up or retracted down with three height settings built into the webbing attachments.
The DG Frame system embodies everything we have learnt in three decades. Materials science, ergonomics, systems integration, all end user’s feedback. This pack has been engineered from first principles. There is nothing else like it, anywhere.
- Light weight unitary design with no weak points or venerable projections.
- Adjustable back pad combined with fully adjustable shoulder harness allows frame set to comfortably fit the widest range of wearers back length.
- Compatible with most ALICE type packs.
- Compatiable with the current issued USMC FILBE Pack
