Catoma® – Switchblade® Raid Pack Kit

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 “Raid” size pack. It is designed to be used as a stand-alone overnight pack, or as a component in the Switchblade pack systems designed for heavy weapons carriage. High-end materials like RipForce™ kevlar reinforced abrasion points, Uretek™ waterproof zippers, carbon-fiber CHIEF frameset, and Cordura™ fabrics make this pack a dynamic and durable tool for the modern warfighter.
