The SwitchBlade™ Load Carriage System is a modular pack suite designed for mission-specific customization by the end user. It is designed around the patented CHIEF (Composite Hybrid Interchangeable Ergonomic Framesheet) frame system (Patent # US 8,678,258 B1) with load distribution through shoulder straps and a belt that are common in all configurations. Together, these components can be easily removed from one load carriage piece and placed into another one as needed. One of the essential pieces to this suite of products is the versatile “Assault” size pack. This is our classic ruck size and at under 8 lbs with frameset and around 3,800 cubic inches in volume, it is an attractive balance of capability and weight. High-end materials like RipForce™ kevlar reinforced abrasion points, Uretek™ waterproof zippers, carbon-fiber CHIEF framesheet, and Cordura™ fabrics make this pack a dynamic and durable tool for the modern warfighter.

    I’ve been a die-hard Mystery Ranch fan for a few years now, especially when wearing body armor. Today I had the chance to use the [Switchblade] pack with armor for a 10 mile hike, after removing that back pad… let me just say I think it outperformed my loved MR bags. Kind of comparing apples to oranges, however it was extremely solid. I’m a Joint Fires Observer in a Stryker unit. I find that the ability to utilize the Molle Panel with a radio pouch and some other small pouches for batteries and such; and then being able to completely separate my sustainment gear with the main bag is awesome. It allows me to able leave my sustainment gear on the truck when performing and assault or short duration patrol. Or even leaving it in a cache when performing dismounted OPs. Having that separation has proved to be an awesome utility.
