The J79 Skycrane II is a modular load bearing system consisting of three primary bags: the basic J79 pack, the pull-out G1 “Little Brother” pack, and a removable fanny/courier pack. These components comprise the basic system, with a volume of 4475 cubic inches.
Add our optional J2SD Spike Duffel to get 6275 cubic inches, or choose the J3SD Super Spike Duffel to reach its maximum capacity of 7375 cubic inches (duffels not included with basic pack system).
The A4SS Tactical Weapon carrier, our other Side Scabbards, and a variety of components can be added to make a seamless pack system that can be selectively configured and optimized to a variety of missions. The basic J79 pack has a fully adjustable, robust internal aluminum/plastic frame system which can be optimized for direct-to-back carry or over-armor carry.
Unique proprietary features enable the weapons carriers to be used singly or in combination, and to be mounted to either the J79 or G1 packs. Both the J79 and G1 are compatible with PRC-117 type radios and other modern battlefield communications gear.
We made the J79 visually similar to our G4 Operator and F4 Terminator backpacks. This family of pack systems leads the way in modern military pack design, in which entire units can be fitted with packs suited to individual specialties. Because the packs have similar visual characteristics, identification of snipers and other specialist personnel will be more difficult for the enemy.
The J79 is the second-generation Skycrane, developed from the J263 Skycrane I. The J263 was extremely well liked by soldiers in the field, who found it to be the best platform available for carrying modern heavy-class sniper rifles.
The original J263 model was a pretty big pack. As the idea evolved into the J79 Skycrane II, one of the changes that we decided upon was to make the new pack narrower in the frame. This way, when the J79 is in the compact mode, it's a nicely proportioned rucksack, in what we consider the ideal dimensions for a multi-day military pack. It's scaled the same as the G4 Operator and the F4 Terminator, and has the unique ability to either grow or reduce its size depending on the mission.
