Garrett Container Awarded DF-LCS Contract

Friday, February 20th, 2009

The 37th Contracting Squadron at Lackland AFB TX has awarded Garrett Container Systems, Inc. an award for delivery of Defensor Fortis-Load Carrying Systems. This is a base period of 12 months with four one-year option periods worth up to $16,522,924.13 for the base period and four options. Interestingly, the award stipulates that the procurement is for Air Force Security Forces only so it appears that other organizations will not be able to leverage this contract vehicle.


DF-LCS is a MOLLE-compatible load carrying system designed specifically for Air Force Security Forces and first issued in 2004. Although it originally came in OD, under the new contract DF-LCS will be offered in the Air force Digital Tiger Stripe pattern. Each Security Forces member will be issued a Rifleman’s kit as well as a Multi-Mission Pack. Additional modules for Team Leader, M-203 Grenadier, M-240 Gunner, M-249 Gunner, and K9 Handler are also available and considered an integral part of the DF-LCS kit. Each SF member is also issued a Black rolling equipment bag to store thr kit.

DF-LCS is available online from Garrett for government clients as well as Air Force members. A version of DF-LCS is also available for commercial purchase from Diamondback Tactical.
