Designed and developed for aerial delivered firefighters, this pack meets the demand of Smokejumpers, Heli-Rappel, and Helitack. The features of this pack are either compressible, stowable, or removable – the yoke has quick-release buckles and integrated storage compartments for the shoulder straps/harnessing and pass-throughs for compression straps, along with other compatible features making it entirely jump compatible. There is double-layered fabric and/or web reinforcements in high wear areas, making it one of the most durable line gear packs. The BIG ERNIE has improved staple features like our new zippered wing pockets with interior drawcords to secure contents, an integrated ambidextrous access fire shelter storage below the main compartment, and daisy chains on the exterior of wing pockets for lashing on accessories.
