    Anyone have one of those Meat Shelf's that they would want to part with?

    I had it in my head that it was part of a pack bag attachment to a duplex frame.

    This post shows a Kifaru pack with a meat shelf, it's the bottom flap. When it's not being used, the black hypalon sleeve slides over the top of the frame, and the load lifters on the frame are attached through that flap to the shoulder straps, and straps on the sides run through the plastic buckles and cinched down tight.

    When the meat shelf is used, the bottom metal clips on the meat shelf attach to the frame, the pack wraps around the meat (think of a bone in quarter maybe, or other load, and the straps on the sides are run through the buckles to compress the load, the black hypalon sleeve isn't used, and the load lifters on the frame are attached to the shoulder straps not through the hypalon sleeve.

    The addition of a meat shelf to a pack bag lets the pack bag cradle and compress dense, heavy loads close to the frame.

    Kifaru did, for a while, make an "expanded meat shelf", I found a post showing it:

    It's a rare critter, maybe try digemout? Sorry for thrashing your thread with my previous misunderstanding. Anyone else have one of these?

    Probably not what you are looking for- but you can use a grab-it or grab-it II as a stand alone meat shelf. Essentially, remove the pack bag, hook the bottom straps of the grab-it to the middle attachments of the frame, then attach the top straps up to the middle tab loops on the side of the frame. You can then re-attach your pack bag as normal. When you want to load meat into the "meat shelf" just remove the top of the bag from the frame, loosen the side straps, put the meat into the grab-it, tighten it down and then tighten your pack side straps. Sounds way more complicated a process than it actually is. Using a grab-it in this fashion is very similar to how a Stone Glacier meat shelf works. Anyhow- good luck.

    My brain just melted. Doing this, any Omni pack will slap on a frame... Simple, brilliant... Thanks for posting this!
