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).

MEAN Pad

$32.00

More Details →

3-4 week lead time*

*Please note that your payment method will be charged upon ordering.

The MEAN Pad is a lightweight NICE Frame accessory that provides a better fit for users who prefer a more shapely lumbar region. It also allows the frame to lock onto the lower back of a user wearing body armor by bridging the gap formed between the rear SAPI plate and the lumbar portion of the frame. Non-slip fabric on the face helps the frame remain tight on the hips, while adjustable pad thickness provides an ideal fit for all users. The same high-grade, slip-resistant polypropylene webbing found on our Gen II Load Lifter Panel is used to ensure the MEAN Pad remains tight to the NICE Frame.

The hunting model attaches via two ladderlock buckles designed to provide a semi-permanent attachment to the NICE Frame. It is not intended to be removed quickly.
The military model includes two 3/4" side release buckles that allow it to be attached and removed quickly to accommodate frame usage with and without body armor. This model perfectly complements a NICE Frame featuring the removable Bolstered Ventilation and Stability (BVS) system.

Belt Guide

This simple accessory attaches in seconds to the 2” tri-glide buckle on most Mystery Ranch and Dana Design hipbelts. Simply slide the Belt Guide through the tri-glide buckle and route your hipbelt’s webbing through the plastic loop for a drastically improved tightening experience.
