If you have time, please watch the above 7 min. video for a detailed overview of this pack (click on arrow and then on "square icon" bottom right, to view full screen). If not, here is a point form listing of the most important features that have been incorporated into this pack...
This pack and all the attachments have Multi-Frame capacity. The user can now attach the pack, hip pad, yoke and shoulder straps to the 5 different frames shown under the "Frames It Fits" tab.
Extremely molle compatible. Base pack and the top flap is now completely molle compatible giving the user an incredible amount of real estate to add personal gear in whatever configuration they like.
The pack has been designed to accommodate the Canadian Forces issue CTS Butt Pack and 2 of the CTS Pack Pouches. Watch the video demo for instructions on how to secure to the pack. This allows you lots of flexibility in pack load configuration and will also save you a few bucks not having to buy additional pouches.
Pack now has a optional nylon pack liner that is made in the exact shape as the pack itself. By using this liner you essential will be doubling the ability to keep your gear dry. Liner is held in place with small velcro tabs.
Available in the Canadian Forces Cadpat 1000denier Cordura
US/Canadian materials and assembly -nothing made overseas here folks!
Originally a US design and used during the Vietnam war, it was initially called the T62-1 Lightweight Rucksack. The Canadian Army back in 1964 took this design and slightly modified it for their own use, hence the term "64 Rucksack" or 64 Pack. One of the most important features of the original pack and probably the main reason it has hung in there for so long is the idea of attaching the pack portion to the lower half of the aluminum frame and then leaving the top portion free for a valice or sleeping bag container. Canadian Airborne troops were especially partial to using this pack and frame configuration.
Fast forward 50 odd years and what CPGear has done is literally transform, modernize and strengthen the original load carrying ideas of the pack but added a whole bunch of new features like "Multi-Frame" capacity!
