    Crew Cab Slayer?

    Hey Guys,

    I just got these packs in at work and I just had to show them to everyone. The pack is called the Granite Gear Tactical Chief Flatbed. I attached a couple of photos for everyone to check it out. It weighs in a 6 pounds 7 ounces! That is shaving about 2 pounds off of a crew cab. Granite Gear designed the pack primarily for the military, it is meant to haul mortar tubes and jaws of life which means this thing will haul some weight. I have had the pack out for a couple of scouting trips and have been super pleased with it, on average I have been packing around 20-25 pounds in it and it carries like a dream. By far the neatest feature about this pack is the flap that attaches to the frame to secure and haul loads (You can see it better in the photos). I have been working with Granite Gear to design a actual pack to attach to the frame, getting that made will make it much easier to backpack with while still allowing you to haul out a quarter or 2. Granite Gear designed this pack/frame to carry over 150 pounds so I know it will carry 2 elk quarters, just depends on being up for that load.To make the pack a little more user friendly I went down the road to mystery ranch and picked up a crew cab lid for it, lid works perfect and adapted perfectly to the pack. I used a 60 liter waterproof pack liner to keep all of my backpacking gear in since there really isn't a "pack" to keep all of your gear in. Let me know if you guys have any feedback or questions on it.
