DG-16 Frameset with LBT Mod Pics!

OK, bitches BravoFoxtrot07 hooked me up with photo skilz.  This first series is the DG-16 frame and suspension, with a highly modified LBT 2657.  With this bag, as well as the FILBE, it only ties in with the top sleeve and two tabs per side.  But you might also notice that I cleverly tied in the compression straps in the handy slots provided.

2d pic, notice the shoulder straps are nice and wide with good padding. Note Quick Release buckles.   Also hip belt has been shortened to a hip/lumbar pad by removing the end pads and belt.   This is my set up as a short back for wear with belt kit.   

On the third pic you can see where the compression straps tie in.  On the DG-16 ruck, this is where the bag itself ties in, making a more solid connection.  Also note top lid.  Bottom zip is pass-through for interior mesh pocket; top zip is external pouch.

4th pic note 1" loops for 8" x 14" "basha" pouch.  Also loops for 2 x 6" x 14"  side pouches (still in work).

And finally 5th pic, shows internal loops for back panel, in my case just a 3L bladder pouch.  But this could also be a radio panel, 60mm rounds pouches, etc.  You can also see top compression strap, which is important in a wide top-loader like this, to contour the top down a little.

Nice!

Y’know what Diz?

There is actually going to be a smaller frame, a chopped and channeled (think ‘carbine’ version) of this frame in the future for smaller statured individuals or a smaller pack for mech troops released by Crossfire soon’ish. 

 

This may also help with your short back idea as well....

Right on, that would also be sweet for the Medium ALICE sized bag.  

Hey man you gonna try and make AUSA?

Planning for AUSA as we speak mate. 

After the fortnight I’ve had, I’m looking forward to a beer!

Yeah sounds like you need a little decompression.   And kit.  Lots of kit.

More pics.  Rigged for hiking.  Loose straps taped or wrapped down.

Really?! Seriously now you mention that after I ordered the regular sized one?

Well, shit, depending on how long it takes, you might need this one first.  We can trade out later on the regular one if you still don't want it.  

Being in development and being on the street are two different things.  

On the short back, well, the regular frame is actually a bit short for me, as a long back, so it's pretty much there for me, as a short back.  But, I'm sure there are guys who would welcome it, as awhile back some were saying the ALICE never fit right with belt kit because their torso measurement was shorter.

Sorry Runningwolf!

But as Diz mentioned, it’s in development. 

The new frame is coming out “soon” which could still be six months away.

Will work with this one for now, it’s still leaps and bounds better just from the pictures then the MOLLE abortion. 

Oh and don’t think I didn’t see what you did there 22f. Got everybody hyped and hooked and after they purchased the frames brought up the small frame so we HAVE to get that one now to. I’m on to you with those dirty tricks 😁

It'll be okay.  You can probably sell the regular one to Con...

The only before would be images on ebay!  See LBT 2657 "8-pocket" ruck.
