We sew our products in batches and therefore may not have all colors in stock at one time. We sew and assemble shoulder straps and waistbelts on each pack to fit the measurements provided by you, our valued customers, to ensure consistent high quality. Thus, nothing usually ships immediately, but is well worth the wait.

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.
2 frame 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.)
Newplex Shoulder Straps for new frames with 3/4″ webbing:
– Choose short shoulder straps for a torso length of 14.5″ – 18″.
– Choose long shoulder straps for a torso length of 18″ and taller.
Removable Lumbar Pad: Made with durable 500d fabric and anatomical dual density foam with PackLock. Designed to help keep the pack solidly in your hip area.
Contoured waist belt Features: The anatomical cut of these belts delivers superior comfort. Their wide design spreads weight and alleviates hot spots. Features: Made from 500d fabric with a dual row PALS matrix suitable for 1″ 3-bar sliders such as on our belt pouches and Gun Bearer or Malice clips.
Stabilizer Strap: This strap on the waistbelt helps stabilize heavy loads by cinching the base of the bag tight to the belt.
