ONE299 Frame

Monday, March 13th, 2017

At the recent IWA in Germany, I noticed that Polish brand Direct Action was experimenting with ADA’s ONE299 pack frame from Australia. I had previously mentioned it during SHOT Show 16, so it was great to see it getting out there.

The concept behind this expandable, polymer frame is that it is designed to accommodate the 1st through 99th percentile Soldier. Via five length configurations, the frame will telescope from 413 to 528mm.

There are multiple attachment points throughout the frame to accept various packs and suspension systems.

ADA builds seven different packs for the Australian Defence Forces.  One of the issues with the current frame is that it isn’t adjustable for the full range of sizes of Soldiers.


ADA developed the One-99 frame to accommodate the 1% through 99th% body.  This external frame is adjustable itself and has multiple attachment points for the harness offering an amazing number of sizing options. Additionally, the frame can be adjusted to fit the load for such instances where a dense load, of small volume where the user wants a  more compact frame length.  

The Patented One-99 has also been issued NSN 8465-66-163-0153 by the ADF.
