Hey fellas, do you guys know how to hook up the LBT 2027a ruck harness to an ALICE or DEI 1606 frame? I picked one but I'm not sure how to install in.

Thanks

Heres some pics of what I have. The harness attaches to the top of the frame by wrapping 1in webbing around the bar/plastic depending on which frame is used.

First pic is is attached to frame with TT super straps in the harness

Image

Next shows the base with frame. You can see the strap on the right - it is the same on the left. These have sliders on them and are looped for a belt to slip inside. The hydration pockets prevent anything attaching to the frame at this point.

Image

This shows the side of the frame with different straps hooked up. The left is the ALICE attachment point of the ruck itself, above that is the shoulder strap attachment point, and on the right is the tan webbing of the harness. I don't know where that would attach or where a waist strap would fit into all this.

Image

Any ideas??

Alight fellas, I figured this beast out. It is super comfortable to wear (without weight) but you are limited to using the old LC-1 or 2 style shoulder straps and waist belt (or similar size if you made some yourself). I had to remove the bladder/O2 pockets or whatever they were because they were too long for the DEI 1606 frame and would cause the suspension to bunch up under the frame.

Despite my efforts, I took this on a ruck the other day and it was miserable. The suspension caused the pack to ride well above my hips (before weight) and in return ALL of the weight was carried on my shoulders (didn't drop low enough on my hips). There is no room for adjustment when paired with the 1606.

Total bummer. If you were a bit shorter than me, it might work. Or, if you want to utilize the ALICE metal frame you may have better luck.

It is for sale if anyone wants it.

Same design as the old HSGI Alipad it looks like. Works great if you have an ALICE frame and don't mind sweat dripping down your back. I stick to a NICE framed-ruck or my TT MALIC straps/frame.

I traded it out for the FILBE suspension.

It was a cool piece of gear, just outdated.
