This frame has been the most comfortable external frame system I have ever used. I am going to recommend it to all my friends in my hiking club.

I bought my Pack Mule frame so that I could attach my old Army Alice Pack. It went right on the frame, just as if it was meant to be there. I also bought the Adapter Kit, just in case I want to swap my Army pack for another. The kit has so many great straps and buckles. I use them all the time to attach various items specific to my immediate needs. Great value! Thanks guys.

Love, love, love these new straps! I had been using my old Army straps on my Pack Mule and they worked pretty well. I decided to upgrade to the Xtreme straps a few months ago and I am so glad. The width of the straps makes a ton of difference. Makes long hikes much more enjoyable. Love them!

I am a deputy in S. Texas and my department bought a few of the mule frames to use when we patrol in remote areas. Most of the guys use 3-day packs on the frame. They are an excellent piece of kit. It is so easy to strap anything onto it, and the low profile seat is so convenient. The setup and breakdown of surveillance positions is quick and easy. I think it would be great for SWAT also. It would be nice to see other color options.

My wife and I bought two frames to use instead of folding lawn chairs. I put an ice chest on mine and my wife carries a pack. Together we are all set when we go to outdoor events. No more dragging along the ice chest and juggling the lawn chairs. We can’t wait to put them to good use.

My daughter bought me a pack mule frame for my birthday after we saw a guy sitting in the seat of his frame in Yellowstone National Park. I have had it now for two months and have used in on 3 different fishing trips. I strap on a small pack and all my fishing gear, we hike in and fly-fish for several days at a time. It has worked out so well. I highly recommend this for any fisherman.

I purchase gear fairly often, every few months maybe... The Maxpedition Condor II is the best bag I've ever used, but when its fully loaded for a few days in the wild it becomes really uncomfortable and start to run out of space. With the Pack Mule frame I can cram the bag full and it will always feels the same on my back. Having the cargo deck and solid frame has allowed me to store and strap things on the outside, which is amazing and has organized my gear more efficiently! This pack has changed my life! I go camping and fishing so often that this pack seemed worth buying for the price and I wasn't wrong, me and my mate didn't want to change our bags so we tried to find something we could put them on that would make them more comfortable. Just the seat alone is sweet! Fishing is amazing now. And, every place in the world I go I know I will always have the same level of comfort around the camp and while hiking! Its a boss design!

I purchased the Pack Mule frame mainly for the fold down seat. I am 74 years old and sitting on the ground is hard on old bones, the fold down seat keeps me up off the ground. I mainly deer and coyote hunt and do not use tree stands due to fall hazard and carrying a bucket was a hassle and has me sitting up to high, especially for coyote hunting. Thanks for your great product.
