Story

Original Concept: Beta-TNT

Years ago, I saw a guy who loves Marine M-1941 Field Pack System very much on USMF, but the original packs are too old to use as daily packs. So he contacted a tactical nylon gear workshop to make a modernized one. This inspired me a lot. There are so many excellent military packs and rucks in the history, they proved themselves in their service years by the durability and fine design. They are not fading out.

Among all the USGI pack and rucks all the time, the ARVN Rucksack is always my favorite.  I have at least five ARVN Rucksacks. The capacity is not to large or too small, perfect for both jungle warfare and daily use. So I came up with an idea that maybe I can recreate it with modern materials and technique. This idea became true in the early 2019, I finished a prototype pack. Then I contacted Lii Gear Lab for further improvement and mass product. The central “ripper zipper” is my initial idea. The name “Jungle Ranger” is a tribute to the original ARVN Rucksack users: ARVN Paratroopers and Rangers, and to every “ranger” who enjoys his/her life.
