The Duplex Lite Frame is built around the outstanding comfort of the original Duplex Frame and Suspension. The Duplex Lite Frame is a flexible contoured internal frame with rigid, composite stays. The stays transfer weight to your hips via a custom fitted cupped and contoured waistbelt. Contoured shoulder straps are designed to stabilize the load on your back without slipping. All weight is carried on your hip platform, where it belongs – not on your shoulders or lower back.
Two frame length options:
26 inch, and 24 inch (Taller stays allow more “lifter strap” function for heavy loads, especially if you’re over 6′ tall for a significant improvement in comfort and efficiency factor.)

I've owned a lot of pack/frame combinations from nearly every manufacturer out there. This frame is hands-down THE most comfortable, especially when hauling out an animal. The waist belt and lumbar pads make you feel like you could carry more weight than your body would allow.

I came of age as a Boy Scout in the 90's when backpackers were switching from the classic aluminum external frame packs to the brand new internal frames. Following the scouts I then spent a long career in the world of military and civilian special operations. During this period of my life I had the privilege of trying about every conceivable pack frame on the market and I remember fondly the pain of a long ruck with each and every one of them.
A few years ago I took a chance on Kifaru and bought the duplex lite. I wanted a frame that could handle 100 plus pound loads and I was intrigued with their design. After countless days of western mountain archery hunting to long training walks with heavy sandbags I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the duplex lite is quite simply the best packframe I have ever experienced. When properly worn it makes 60 pound loads feel like 30 and the weight stays directly connected to the small of your back in a way that just has to be experienced to be believed. There is absolutely no pull on the shoulders when the waist belt is properly tightened and if you want to shift a heavy load around while covering many miles the pack is designed to easily shift the load with the thoughtful quick releases on the shoulder belts and waist belt. From my perspective every little attention to detail has been thought about with this pack frame and its quality is astounding.
Don't hesitate to invest in this piece of gear as it will probably be the last…

Just got back from 10 day moose and the frame stood up well to the weight. The one problem I kept having over and over was the buckles coming out of the loops. Both load lifter female sides fell off. One side buckle kept being pulled out when you tried to secure the meat tight to the pack. Need to have a permanent buckle option if desired. Really sucks when your buckles come off hauling a 150 pound moose rear quarter.

I’ve used quite a bit of different packs over the years and none have even come close to the amount of support, sturdiness and comfort this one has. Once you have the pack/frame loaded down, it’s noticeably more comfortable and strong than any other pack and frame system I’ve used. I used to worry about buckles breaking and sewn seams pulling apart but not with kifaru. Not the lightest pack and frame system out there but the durability and strength make up for it.Kifaru Intl3 months ago
