Just got an email announcement on a new Kifaru product, a cargo net. https://store.kifaru.net/cargo-net-p222.aspx . I can see a lot of uses for this, at a reasonable price. With the slotted buckles, it looks like it can be used on many platforms as well.
A new version of the packboard based on "Yukon" or "Trapper Nelson" packboards used for carrying very heavy loads. Here's one made in 1944 by the American Seating Company.
Excerpt from a TM showing how to carry some of the loads.
The ALICE Pack also has a cargo shelf for carrying load.
Not exactly the same thing, I know, but it looks like a good way to carry big heavy stuff. The term is "man-packable". Think two-legged mule.
Will the net fit other platforms besides Kifaru?
It looks like it has the dock and lock system which *should* fit any molle set up.
Interesting new product
On a side note, I really wish Kifaru would bring back the "interior RTO pouch"
Last time I had to worry about packs like this: I got called Bwana...
