AGULUK – The Leg Pack System On Kickstarter

Monday, June 19th, 2017

AGULUK Kryptec Highlander

AGULUK is a load-carrying system developed by avid outdoorsman Cody Gustin, currently up for funding on Kickstarter. It’s designed to replace a traditional backpack, removing all carrying capacity from the back, and instead distributing the weight on the legs and hips. In appearance, AGULUK looks a bit like a combination of large carry pouches/miniature packs hanging from a climbing belt.

The AGULUK series comes in two sizes: R-Pack and H-Pack. The R-Pack, or Hiking Pack, holds up to 2000 cu in of gear, 1000 cu in each side. The H-Pack, Hunting Pack, holds 1500 cu in per side, for a total of 3000 cu. As you can see from the animation above, you can fit a solid amount of gear in an H-Pack.

AGULUK will be available in a variety of solid colors and camouflages, including Kryptek patterns, depending on the model.

    Old West Gun Playing Cards

    Gun Websites has started a Kickstarter campaign for a deck of Old West Guns playing cards. Like the previous AK Playing Card Deck, the deck will feature various weapons from the ‘Old West’ era – period rifles, shotguns, revolvers, etc. Each card features a full color image, along with dates of production and additional info, such as the inventor, weapon’s nickname, barrel length, a life-size image of the ammunition the weapon was chambered for, and more. The classification of weapons will be separated via suits, which of course means these cards can also be used as a standard playing deck.
