DG-16 (85 Litre) Long Range Patrol Pack

(6 customer reviews)


The DG16 embodies everything we have learnt in three decades.

After 35 years of designing and building outstanding load carriage systems for the Australian Army. Crossfire understands what a robust and reliable load carriage systems needs to incorporate to allow the wearer to arrive ready for task .

Materials science, ergonomics, systems integration, all with end user feedback. This pack has been engineered from first principles. There is nothing else like it, anywhere. The pack is universally adjustable, we understand not everyone is built the same. The DG Frame allows adjustment of both harness and back length adjustment.

This pack has been engineered from these first principles. The DG16 highlights the Crossfire guiding principle of innovation not replication.

(Due to COVID-19 we cannot guarantee the most expedient arrival of your package to your doorstep, if it’s in stock it will go out immediately, we are working 24/7 on your orders, once it is in the hands of major curriers it’s up to them to fulfill the shipment. Currently they are not guaranteeing anything to be on time. “To our north American customers we have had very few delayed arrivals”. “To our European customers we are  experiencing speedy arrivals to some European countries while others take much longer.”)



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.

  1. AC

    Finally. A no BS pack that ticks all my boxes. Thanks.

  2. Anthony

    I fully expect, after wearing myself out using the DG16 pack, to see my grandchildren still using it in 20 years time. Top notch piece of kit!

  3. 22F

    One of the best general purpose combat packs on the market.

  4. Aaron Brooks

    After looking at a lot of packs, decided to drop some coin on this.

  5. Mark Alexandridis

    I do love how it feels when I put it on. One of the most comfortable packs I’ve put on my back.

  6. James Troop

    I have a DG16. Last June I took it on the overland track for adventurous training. Awesome. I was one of the few with no comfort issues 😎👍
