Stronger stitching, more durable buckles and NIR compliant webbing: these are some of the new features of the Mod. 1 edition Gen II Load Lifter Panel (patented).

Weighing just 8 ounces with carbon fiber stays, the Gen II LLP is an ideal option for a NICE Frame extension. We've retained all the features of the original Load Lifter Panel while significantly reducing weight and complexity. The top of the LLP remains as trim as possible, to help prevent it from snagging on foliage, and hook and loop fasteners allow stays to be swapped out in seconds. Four attachment straps with accompanying ladderlock buckles allow the Gen II LLP to be adjusted up to 6" above the top of the NICE Frame, providing an optimal fit for all users.

For the main attachment straps, we use an exceptionally durable, US-made polypropylene webbing that's lighter and far more slip resistant when wet versus mil-spec nylon webbing. All attachment straps can be doubled back through their ladderlock buckle to ensure the Load Lifter Panel remains tight to the frame through the roughest abuse.

To accommodate Crew Cab and Load Sling users, we've introduced the Buckle Adapter - a lightweight (under one ounce) accessory that slips around the NICE Frame's upper horizontal stay and provides attachment points for the Crew Cab's top male buckles, which are inaccessible when the LLP is attached. This removable accessory ensures the weight of a pack is transferred directly to the frame for maximum stability.

Check out a comparative review against the Mystery Ranch NICE Lift Kit on the Team Kendrick Outdoors site.
A write-up of the Gen II LLP can be found on Jerking the Trigger.

Stay Options

We offer two types of stays for the Gen II LLP.

Our carbon fiber stays are very lightweight and rigid. These are perfect for ounce-counters and users that will never carry more than a moderately heavy load. They are prone to breaking under extreme conditions and are not recommended for very heavy loads or military applications. As long as a fully loaded pack is never donned or doffed using a single shoulder strap, these should perform admirably.

The fiberglass stays are about two ounces heavier than the carbon fiber stays and far more durable. These are built to handle serious abuse and are recommended for users that seek the most reliable gear available.

FAQ

What exactly does it do?
The LLP provides additional lift and stability for the shoulder straps, especially when the yoke is adjusted above the top of the frame. It's similar to lengthening the frame itself, but without increasing how high a pack rides on the frame.

What packs are the Load Lifter Panel compatible with?
The LLP will work with virtually any pack that fits on the NICE Frame, to include ALICE and USMC FILBE packs. It is not designed to work with Mystery Ranch packs that feature an internal frame extension (though the Wolfpack/Wolf Alpha can be used with the LLP as long as the pack's internal framing component is not utilized).

If you're a NICE Frame user above five-foot nine, you've noticed that the frame's load lifters don't raise the shoulder straps enough to fully transfer the weight of the pack onto your hips. Our Load Lifter Panel (patent pending) is a NICE Frame extension that raises the height of the load lifters one to six inches, allowing the frame to accommodate virtually any torso length with unprecedented comfort. 

Made of mil-spec webbing and hardware with carbon fiber stays, the Load Lifter Panel is built to withstand the toughest conditions while maintaining a dependable level of performance. 

The Load Lifter Panel attaches to the two female load lifter buckles on the top of the NICE Frame. An attachment strap wraps around the front of the frame, and two additional attachment straps attach to the center bar of the NICE Frame, allowing the frame and Load Lifter Panel to behave as a single unit. A significant increase in comfort and functionality, all at a weight increase of only ten ounces.

Specifications

Weight: 10.3 ounces (293 grams)
Dimensions: 16.5" x 11" (42cm x 28cm)
Materials: carbon fiber, ITW Nexus/National Molding hardware, mil-spec webbing, T-90 nylon thread

Will it work with a Load Sling?
Yes, though the uppermost Load Sling buckles will connect to the outer top female buckles on the NICE Frame.

Why doesn't the LLP raise the height of a pack on the frame?
Initially, that's what we wanted. It didn't work well in testing. See this link to read about the different prototypes we tested.

Gila Packs Upgrade

$100.00

This product is unavailable

More Details →

Discontinued

Click here to view our article discussing the problems with the Kelty Gila series pack frame.

Be sure to read the Order Fulfillment Instructions in the "More Details" tab before ordering.

Users of a Kelty Gila series backpack will notice the pack does not fit correctly: The hipbelt pushes up into the ribcage and doesn't wrap correctly around the hips. OV Innovations can modify packs that utilize the Kelty-licensed Mystery Ranch Wrapframe suspension system to dramatically improve comfort, performance and durability. This upgrade can be performed on the following packs:

  • Gila 6500, Gila 6503
  • Klamath 7200, Klamath 7203
  • Arctic Fox 7250
  • Kodiak 7200, Kodiak 7203

Our upgrade will ensure the packbag does not sag on the frame, which will prevent the hipbelt from angling upward aggressively as well as allow the frame to wrap around the hips. Because we reinforce the frame and correct how a load is distributed, reliability and stability are increased as well.

We perform the following modifications to improve fit:

  • The frame's lower attachment flap is removed and a new one constructed. This stronger attachment flap is attached directly to the frame's support structure, several inches above the location of the previous flap. This improvement allows the weight of the packbag to properly transfer to the frame while preventing the packbag from sagging and eliminating the hipbelt's upward cant.
  • The horizontal aluminum stay found on the frame's lumbar region is removed, allowing the frame to wrap around the hips as designed.
  • The aluminum frame stays are molded to match the contours of the spine, further improving comfort.

Please note that this is a labor-intensive modification that will involve disassembling the lower section of the Wrapframe. Additionally, this upgrade lengthens the hipbelt several inches, which will be especially perceptible for thinner users. The hipbelt will best fit waists 32" and up.

Order Fulfillment Instructions

This modification will require you to send us your packbag and Wrapframe.
After checkout, please follow these steps:

1. Separate the pack lid, external frame and yellow inner aluminum tube frame, and thoroughly clean and dry the packbag inside and out (the aluminum tube frame can be removed by unfastening the two Velcro flaps on the inside top of the packbag). A standard garden hose with a nozzle works well for this purpose. Be sure to dry your pack out of direct sunlight. Packs that are not cleaned before shipment will incur a $30 cleaning fee.

2. Box the packbag, frame and fiberglass rod (we do not need the pack lid, inner aluminum frame or any accessories). If you are not mailing the pack under the name used during checkout, please write the full name used during checkout on the outside of the box with permanent marker. As your pack will be returned in the box in which we receive it, ensure it can be opened and resealed without undue hassle (i.e. do not simply wrap the pack and frame in plastic without using a box).

Mail your pack and frame to:
OV Innovations
39506 N. Daisy Mountain Dr. #122-194
Phoenix, AZ 85086

We are not responsible for packs lost during transit, so please purchase insurance through the respective carrier.

3.Your pack will be returned to you in about 4 weeks and we cover return shipping. If you would like your pack shipped back to you by a particular carrier or service, please let us know in the order notes section during checkout. If no preference is made, we will use either USPS Parcel Select or UPS Ground, whichever is cheaper.

Be sure to read the Order Fulfillment Instructions in the "More Details" tab before ordering.

Users of a Kelty Gila series backpack will notice the pack does not fit correctly: The hipbelt pushes up into the ribcage and doesn't wrap correctly around the hips. OV Innovations can modify packs that utilize the Kelty-licensed Mystery Ranch Wrapframe suspension system to dramatically improve comfort, performance and durability. This upgrade can be performed on the following packs:

  • Gila 6500, Gila 6503
  • Klamath 7200, Klamath 7203
  • Arctic Fox 7250
  • Kodiak 7200, Kodiak 7203

Our upgrade will ensure the packbag does not sag on the frame, which will prevent the hipbelt from angling upward aggressively as well as allow the frame to wrap around the hips. Because we reinforce the frame and correct how a load is distributed, reliability and stability are increased as well.

We perform the following modifications to improve fit:

  • The frame's lower attachment flap is removed and a new one constructed. This stronger attachment flap is attached directly to the frame's support structure, several inches above the location of the previous flap. This improvement allows the weight of the packbag to properly transfer to the frame while preventing the packbag from sagging and eliminating the hipbelt's upward cant.
  • The horizontal aluminum stay found on the frame's lumbar region is removed, allowing the frame to wrap around the hips as designed.
  • The aluminum frame stays are molded to match the contours of the spine, further improving comfort.

Please note that this is a labor-intensive modification that will involve disassembling the lower section of the Wrapframe. Additionally, this upgrade lengthens the hipbelt several inches, which will be especially perceptible for thinner users. The hipbelt will best fit waists 32" and up.

Order Fulfillment Instructions

This modification will require you to send us your packbag and Wrapframe.
After checkout, please follow these steps:

1. Separate the pack lid, external frame and yellow inner aluminum tube frame, and thoroughly clean and dry the packbag inside and out (the aluminum tube frame can be removed by unfastening the two Velcro flaps on the inside top of the packbag). A standard garden hose with a nozzle works well for this purpose. Be sure to dry your pack out of direct sunlight. Packs that are not cleaned before shipment will incur a $30 cleaning fee.

2. Box the packbag, frame and fiberglass rod (we do not need the pack lid, inner aluminum frame or any accessories). If you are not mailing the pack under the name used during checkout, please write the full name used during checkout on the outside of the box with permanent marker. As your pack will be returned in the box in which we receive it, ensure it can be opened and resealed without undue hassle (i.e. do not simply wrap the pack and frame in plastic without using a box).

Mail your pack and frame to:
OV Innovations
39506 N. Daisy Mountain Dr. #122-194
Phoenix, AZ 85086

We are not responsible for packs lost during transit, so please purchase insurance through the respective carrier.

3.Your pack will be returned to you in about 4 weeks and we cover return shipping. If you would like your pack shipped back to you by a particular carrier or service, please let us know in the order notes section during checkout. If no preference is made, we will use either USPS Parcel Select or UPS Ground, whichever is cheaper.

PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING:
• Review both the "Overview" and "More Details" tabs before placing an order.
• Artwork templates are available under the "More Details" tab. We highly recommend using a template to ensure your artwork is formatted correctly.
• Images that require editing before printing will incur an additional fee.
• Upon placing an order, please email your artwork image file to artwork@ovinnovations.com.

For tactical gear makers looking to have labels made on a budget, we now offer custom printed Reemay labels. These are high resolution, black and white (grayscale) laser printed and sold per 8.125"x11" sheet. Tags are made with Berry Amendment compliant Reemay stock and conform to MIL-DTL-32075 Type VI.

We charge a flat rate per printed sheet - no setup fee or minimum order requirement. Quantity of labels per sheet varies by size ordered, as indicated. Sheets will ship uncut and include grey guidelines for cutting (we find a straightedge and rotary cutter work best for this job, but household scissors will do fine).

For garment or other high wear use, please select the white label stock. This is the only style of label we offer that's rated for high wear applications, such as on a vest against the body. The print on our colored label stock is typically less durable than that on standard Type VI labels.

Custom label sizes are available upon request. Please contact us for more information.

Refunds or exchanges are not available after labels are printed.

Specifications

Materials: Laser printed Reemay
Features: custom printed Type VI labels
Colors: white, tan, green
• Printed in the US on US materials


Reemay is a registered trademark of Fiberweb, Inc.

Image File Details

Please provide us with a high resolution (300-1200dpi) black and white image that is sized according to your ordered label size. Ensure the image is ready to print. Images that require editing before printing will incur an additional fee. We highly recommend using the image templates provided below to format your label file.

Acceptable file formats include:

  • Adobe Photoshop (.psd)
  • Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
  • PNG (.png)
  • JPEG (.jpg)
  • GIF (.gif)
  • Bitmap (.bmp)

We recommend leaving at least a 1/8" margin around the edges of your design for sewing. For tags that will only be sewn along one edge (i.e. when tucked into a seam), a 3/8" margin on one side works best.

Image Templates

The templates provided below include the correct dimensions and minimum recommended 1/8" sewing margin.

Use and Care

Labels will withstand normal use, to include washing and drying, but our colored labels are not as durable as the Type VI specification labels commonly seen on issued military gear. (For high durability labels, we recommend contacting C.N. Clark Company.) Our white Reemay sheets are the most durable and are the only color we recommend for use on garments. Do not dry clean.

For more information, please see our article on custom labels.
