[at-l] For the ultra heavy backpacker...

That was me.  If i remember right, some details on that pack are:

-  quick release packbag.  the bag is actually clipped onto a harness with a
quick release mechanism. IE, you pull two straps and your loaded bag falls
to the ground. perfect for when you get ambushed and need to find cover

-  modular design.  there are several sizes of bag and compartments that fit
on the system, take whatyou need, leave the ammo bags at home. unless your
backpacking in the middle east maybe?

-  its all made of super heavy duty ballistic nylon or some such bombproof

- its about 12 lbs empty
