One of the unique brief requirements and features was to develop a system that can carry bulky long items, weapon systems, and communications gear between the frame and the packbag itself. Not an easy task to do well.

Complete concept-through-production collaboration with client G99. I was responsible for all original design, development, engineering, material and design specifications, sampling, supply chain setup, manufacturing aspects. Worked in close collaboration with functional requirements established by private global tactical specialty brand G99 to create this unique modular platform including frame and 100% interchangeable component systems. Used by special forces units around the globe in active combat. Assist, backup, and invaluable support by M. Coleman Horn.
