Canadian Army Rucksack / Cargo Pack / Pack Board frame




These were manufactured in 1998-2001 to carry items for the ERYX system. It is essentially a very well made rucksack frame that doubles as a pack board / cargo carrier. You can mount a rucksack bag that you have, or use it the way it is and strap your heavy cargo to it. It is adjustable for any body size as the shoulder harness and hip belt system can slide up or down in channels in the frame. They lock into place by 2 screws and a sliding bracket.

  2. This system is being phased out in 2016. Curious whether this will be dumped on the surplus market, whether it already was years ago, or whether they’ll retain it for something else. Love the look of that frame.
