Maneuver Conference – Drift Dry USA

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Drift Dry USA finds its roots in the SCUBA industry and has taken their history in maritime technologies to integrate flotation into combat gear. Now, they’ve taken their experience with stabilizing SCUBA loads in the back to develop a new ALICE-style frame system.

They’ve integrated TIG welding technologies from NASCAR and aviation industries. They’ve made a frame that is stronger and lighter, initially with still and now with aluminum. Additionally, Drift Dry has eliminated those pesky rivets and other unnecessary components that are the week points of the frame.

You may also notice the padded captive suspension system. It integrates load lifters at the shoulders and the waist belt is precurved to fit the hips.

They’ve also introduced a pack bag for the frame with an internal, adjustable radio pouch as well as dual internal hydration sleeves with unique external drain holes. The Mission Patrol pack also incorporates A removable rain cover.
