A classic backpack with a flap. The flap features a zipped compartment and elastic shock cord on top. The bag has a back with a plastic plate and an aluminum stay in the back to make it firm, but adaptable. Shoulder pads are made from plastic foam for comfort and even balance of the weight. It has a chest strap and attachment for handset/microphone. Inside compartment with emergency insulation pad. Short, padded hip belt. Roll top opening/closure in the main compartment keeps snow and dirt out. 4 MOLLE bands on the back of the pack, where more pouches can be attached. Velcro for identification patch. Band and elastic band for microphone for the section radio. Roll up ends on all bands to keep them tight.
Updated version 2020: The shoulder pads and hip belt are sewn onto the backpack.
