    Default Taller E&E

    Will we ever see the E&E stretched out just enough to be able to put the Kifaru Omni Framesheet in it. Some of us have been asking for a stretched out E&E for more than 10 years.
    Think of the possibilities running 3 Chamber Pockets on both front and back inner panels and have a removable framesheet. Would be a nice addition to the Tac lineup.

    Agreed a taller E&E with full panel opening would be the perfect small pack. Seeking the same idea, I bought a Native as a near term solution and I love it. Dimensions are great, it holds way more than I thought it would, yet it has a low profile. As I wrote in another spot yesterday in my view it's the best small bag they've made in years. However for my use I need the support so I attach it to a 22" frame. Still maintains the low profile. And fyi if you decide to give it a try it doesn't have a chamber pocket so I attach a belt pouch(es) to the outside when I need the extra pocket, and/or use pullouts. But I agree a full panel opening in this size would just make a good thing even better.

    Sounds like a nice little assault aid bag.

    Kifaru used to offer a "stretched-out" E&E; it was called the Marauder! ; ) And yes, jhayes6405, it made an awesome aid bag . . .

    The problem with a bigger E&E is that it quickly "out grows" the simple suspension system.

    Have you looked at the 14'R? This pack seems to be a good option for a panel loader.

    Take care,

    Take care,
    Umm, X-Ray? (I know, it's wider too, but, really what it seems you're asking for is a narrow X-Ray, but without all of the internal PALS webbing.)

    I do have proof of "out growing" its suspension.....

    Buckaroo is on to something with the Marauder....perhaps an updated, lighter version. What I have in mind is basically a slightly shorter 22mag on an Omni suspension, in 500d.

    No, long since traded off. That was my first Kifaru. It was a G1, right when the G2s came out, and the pockets were on sale too.
