As further proof of the ALICE frame’s refusal to go quietly into the night (see yesterday’s post), I present the very slick new Satellite Ruck from Ares Armor. The Satellite Ruck is another new ALICE based pack with a really unique and useful trick up its sleeve.
The Satellite Ruck is so called due to its ability to accept the Ares Armor Combat XII Pack in a space on its back. This allows the wearer to use the entire system for maximum capacity or to drop the main pack and use the Combat XII Pack for times when less capacity is needed. The Satellite Ruck also serves as a stand-alone ruck without the Combat XII Pack. It is sized slightly larger than the medium ALICE pack in terms of capacity.
Ares Armor has also recently introduced a number of other new items, so be sure to check out their website at AresArmor.com.
Wow, I like the looks of that. I seriously need to get one of these and a Combat XII pack to test out.
Pretty cool, now if folks can just resist packing it with 140 pounds of gear…
