Improved USMC Pack Modification Kit

Early lots of USMC Pack System shoulder harnesses suffered from load lifter buckle failures and improperly sized quick release straps. In 2013, the USMC began issuing a mandatory modification kit for affected packs manufactured by Eagle Industries. Made to military specifications with NIR-compliant webbing and hardware, our USMC Pack Modification Kit is now available to upgrade or repair your FILBE pack.

+

The Top Buckle Adapters are provided to replace the existing load lifter buckles on the Shoulder Harness Assembly. These attach directly around the top of the pack frame to ensure utmost reliability. Double bartack design provides lasting durability.
The Quick Release Adapters replace non-NIR-compliant and improperly sized quick release straps and attach by simple triglide buckles. The snap fasteners feature a NIR-compliant polymer cap instead of the standard enamel coating, providing superior wear resistance and infrared reflectance. This upgrade will prevent the quick release straps from unsnapping inadvertently.

Complete kits are individually packaged.

Materials: solution-dyed nylon webbing, ITW Nexus hardware, NIR-compliant snap fastener, T-70 nylon thread
Features: load lifter buckle and quick release strap upgrades for the USMC FILBE Main Pack
Color: coyote brown
• Made in the US from US materials

I have a FILBE Main Pack. Do I need one or both of these upgrades?
As specified by the Product Manager Infantry Combat Equipment (PdM ICE), the following Eagle Industries Shoulder Harnesses require modification:
Lot Numbers EM-001 through EM-135 require the complete modification kit.
Lot Numbers EM-136 through EM-211 only require the Top Buckle Adapters.
In our experience, some Propper-manufactured harnesses will need one or both upgrades as well.

Is this modification kit official issue?
The kit is made to military specifications but is not the official USMC Pack modification kit (that is, it is not made by a military contractor). The OV Innovations kit differs from the military issued by our use of a polymer-covered snap fastener cap and additional stitching on the Top Buckle Adapters.

Will the Top Buckle Adapters function with a Shoulder Harness in the "long torso" setting?
Yes, they're sized to be just long enough to reach over the Shoulder Harness when it's adjusted to the "long torso" setting.

In an effort to continue expanding our product line, many OV Innovations products are currently made to order. Items that are not in stock may delay your order from shipping. Standard lead times are listed on each product page and vary between products. If your order requires a longer than advertised lead time, you will be notified via email.

Our products are made in the USA and guaranteed for life against manufacturing and material defects.
