    Sorry man; but I gotta say it. Looks like a big, floppy mess! I'll give you 10 points for ingenuity and perseverance though . . .

    Was this just an exercise to see if it could be done? Or do you actually carry it? I mean; you're carrying two complete frame systems with that set-up.

    Just wondering . . .

    Thank you for viewing
    I like to experiment with different system to see if I can get better outcome like: comfy
    Usually I carry it daily to my work... and test it with 20 - 40 lbs

    What I did to it were:
    On Xray:
    1. Remove the stays & belt from Xray
    2. Attached Xray with SR buckles on sides and upper straps
    3. Attached Xray belt flap to NICE frame buckles (just like MR Overload to NICE Frame)

    On NICE Frame:
    1. Removed the original straps and replace it with HPG
    MR has totally different philosophy compare to Kifaru / HPG...
    their shoulder strap is designed to bear the pack weight (attached to pack's body) which is overlap with the belt function
    2. Removed the original belt and folded it's wing into frame
    3. Install Kifaru omnibelt to Nice frame

    Surprisingly it rides better on me, tighter and more comfortable compare to original belt & straps

    In the past I attached Zulu to NICE Frame and added belt to Zippy without sewing as well
    it is not ideal but it get the job done well
