The DG16 is the perfect medium between our three rucks, it’s kind of our jack of all trades, it can be broken down with the removable lid to decrease overall size and capacity, with the compression straps it has the ability compress down as small as the DG3. That being said it has excellent expansion power, fully equipped with PALS webbing on the top lid, the sides and back giving it the capability to accept many of ours and other sustainment pouches, thus taking it closer to the Mk.VII in capacity. If you can only outfit with one pack which needs to fit a multitude of roles, as said before the 85L DG16 is the perfect medium.
