The Tactical Tailor Fight Light MALICE Pack Frame is the result of our desire to improve on a decades old design. We took the original ALICE Pack frame design that has remained virtually unchanged for 50 years, combined it with our own military experience and then asked the guys in the field how they would do it, and this is the result.Our frame is built from light weight, ASTM B221 conforming aluminum tubing, giving a 30% reduction in weight compared to similar competitor's aftermarket pack frames, while increasing strength and rigidity over the issue ALICE pack frame. We know that in the field, every ounce saved counts. All rivets have been replaced with welded joints for strength - no more popped rivets - as well as eliminating sharp edges to snag gear on.The frame is now STRILLS compatible and the redesigned crossbar bends away from the body, creating space between the pack and your back. This provides better airflow, keeping you cooler and also provides a space wide enough to go around standard sized (10"x12") back hard plates. Available in Coyote Brown.
