New and Replace Existing Systems


The Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) will replace their load carriage equipment with the procurement of a new modular pack system to address Canadian Armed Forces load carriage requirements.


The new modular pack system will provide a superior load carriage solution, replacing the in-service rucksack and small pack. The pack system will be a fully modular system comprised of a frame, a shoulder harness, and a variety of attachable bags or slings to address the load carriage requirement of various Canadian Armed Forces trades. Although the majority of modular pack systems will be utilized by the infantry, specialist bags for medics, snipers, and engineers will also be provided. The modular pack system will be required in Canadian Disruptive Pattern - Temperate Woodland (CADPAT (TW)) and Canadian Disruptive Pattern - Arid Regions (CADPAT (AR)).
