    I’d like to know more… What is the frame made out of? What is the total weight? How does the releasable belt function? Hopefully they’ll post up some more.

      Luke – the frame is milled aluminum, really lightweight for what it can handle. Looks like you found the belt video. More to come from High Ground on this pack at SHOT, keep up with SSD and you will see more.

      You can always ping is at [email protected] as well.

    Found a video of the belt system for one of their other packs, looks like the best system I’ve seen yet. Might not carry weight like a dedicated pack belt but a good compromise if you need a battle belt.

      I have two packs from High Ground that utilized this system. I’ve used a number of other pack with dedicated waist belts and these two packs stack up right about the same with a 45-55LBS load. I can’t see it fairing any worse off with more weight. The buckle system can be a little awkward to activate at times, but really having my pistol and mags stay attached to my belt is an option I want. Putting a traditional belt over my pistol never works, no matter what kind of drop or extension I use.

      TL;DR the belt system is the jam.

        Mike- glad you dig it. Keep tuned we have a BA belt upgrade launching next week. Stay safe.

    Mystery Ranch vs High Ground’s interpretation of the modernized ALICE ruck. My money is on MR’s interpretation.

    Am I the only one who prefers an external frame? Better compression, stand off to allow ventilation when you’re not wearing body armor, what’s not to like? If the bag itself was ~$150-200 and fully compatible with an ALICE/MALICE/Coleman Peak1 modified frame, I’d be all over it.
