    One notable addition to the Kifaru line of interest to this audience is the integration of their “Armor Grip” suspension on their assault-sized “Omni” packs (Marauder, Zulu, etc.).

    Of the three packs “claiming” to be armor compatible that I’ve owned or used, my Kifaru AG is by far superior. It’s a large system (based on their Duplex Frame), however, and a bit large for the kind of maneuvering that many are doing in the field. The newer smaller profile, with TRUE armor compatibility, puts Kifaru in a position to meet a market that hasn’t been serviced properly in the entire decade we’ve been putting armored personnel on the battlefield.

    Full Disclosure: I troll the Kifaru boards but I am a customer who pays full price for their gear, waits in line like everyone else and has used it in the field for 8 years.

    The new packs look pretty appealing so far, but I’m not super-keen on 500D construction.

    According to a post today on the forum, it’ll be available in 1000d. (I’ve been a customer since 1990 when I got my first Mountainsmith pack)
