Prior to the competitive win, Gentex had been supplying the helmet to the Army as a subcontractor under a prior agreement. “We’re proud to have been chosen to continue producing this next generation aviator helmet for the Army,” said Robert McCay, vice president aircrew systems, Gentex Corporation. “Providing the helmet to the Army directly allows for better pricing, and streamlined engineering and integration support.”

Mystery Ranch – Crewcab Pack

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Crewcab_15-coyote-hero (1)

Mystery Ranch believes the Crewcab is one of the most innovative and adaptable packs ever made.

Crew Cab with bot Profile

Born out of a unit’s need to haul ammo cans, this famous variable-capacity pack can collapse or expand to carry loads that vary dramatically in size, shape, and weight. At its smallest, the Crewcab is a low-profile, 1900 cu-in pack, but can be expanded out to carry more than 6000 cu in. It can carry EOD gear, Pelican cases, robots, MR Load Cells, ammo cans, even casevacs in a pinch. The CREWCAB excels at carrying weird loads.

Crewcab_25-multicam-NICE Overload 3 Zip BVS-system

As a NICE framed pack, the Crewcab can haul the biggest loads in comfort. The NICE frame’s adjustable Futura yoke and lumbar wrap system —a three-dimensionally shaped belt— make sure you get a custom fit for any body type.
