ADDITIONAL SOLUTION INFORMATION
DETACHABLE GRIP FRAME
Just like several of the Blacks Creek pack designs the Solution attaches to the GRIP frame. The bag attaches to the frame by using two large toothed zippers on either side of the pack. Once the bag is removed, the frame can then be used separately to haul loads or coupled together with the Solution bag by using the six buckles provided to fasten the bag around the load on the GRIP frame.
DETACHABLE EXTERNAL PACK
The side compression wings along with the lower shelf system allows you to quickly load and secure freight. The nylon compression straps, (3 vertical, 2 horizontal) keep the load secure and tight, eliminating load shifting. The Butterfly harness distributes the weight across your shoulder blades and the shoulder straps are designed to move with your body, eliminating fatigue. The perfectly placed load lifters do exactly what they are supposed to do, transfer your load from your shoulders to your hips and back. They are easy to adjust while walking, allowing you to keep your muscles as loose as possible. The “Grip Frame” can be used as an independent piece of equipment or can be used with the Answer, Alternative or Solution packs. Buy one or buy all three and simply swap out with the “Grip” frame to compliment any hunting adventure.
STORAGE AND ORGANIZATION
Storage and organizing your gear while planning several day furloughs on the mountain is critical to a successful trip. The “Solution” is packed with storage and organizational capabilities. The main compartment has two access points. These points include one vertical zipper on the face and a draw weather guard top. Either access points open large enough to gain access to the main compartment easily. The top of the pack includes a detachable lid. The lid is designed to move up and down as your load increases or decreases. It functions as a compression device and has plenty of storage space for items such as food, range finders, knives, and extra ammo that you may need to get to in a hurry. The bottom of the pack includes a separate compartment designed specifically for a sleeping bag. Inside you will find an internal sewn in stuff sack. This sack is there to compress your sleeping bag and protect it from zipper snagging. It also acts as a second layer of protection against puncturing and moisture. Your sleeping bag may just be the one item that saves your life, so take good care of it.
The “Solution” is equipped with two Expandable external optics pockets, one on either side of the pack. When not in use these pockets can be zipped shut to lay flat against the side of the pack. When needed the pockets can be unzipped to expand. Expanding the pocket reveals a secondary internal zipper that gains access to the inside of the compartment. You can also gain access to the pocket through the top draw string weather collar. This allows you to insert longer items such as tripods or walking sticks that do not fit inside the pocket and let them stick out the top.
CARRY A GUN OR BOW
The Solution pack includes the gun/bow boot feature. It quickly attaches to the outside of the pack using two 3/4” buckles. It features another 3/4” strap and buckle to secure the limb of your bow in place. This strap can also be threaded between your gun stock and sling for added security. When not in use the boot can be detached and stored away inside one of the many pockets on the pack.
3 LTR HYDRATION POCKET
The Solution is equipped with an internal hydration pocket capable of accepting a 3 liter bladder. The top of the pocket includes a webbing loop for tying your bladder off to keep it from sagging. The “GRIP” frame includes a sleeve located on each shoulder strap for threading the hydration hose through. This keeps the hose secured.
