major upgrade!Review by dry_sockets

really a fantastic upgrade to the T.h.E. bag. i have been using my the bag very happily for years, but kept meaning to buy the frame. one day a promo code was available, and i jumped on it. the install was simple, and the upgrade was immense. the bag is now far more comfortable to carry, especially with larger loads. the compression straps work far better with something to pull on. overall, super impressed with this upgrade. if you use your the bag regularly, i would urge you to get this frame asap.

DEPENDENT UPON HOW YOU USE YOUR PACK, THIS COULD BE VITAL. HEAVIER LOADS, LONGER TRIPS, HYDRATION BLADDER, ETC. MAY YIELD THIS NECESSARY. LIGHTER USE OF A PACK WITH BOOKS OR A CHANGE OF CLOTHES MAY NOT EXACTLY. (Posted on 9/7/2015)

I understand why spec ops doesnt include this with the packs, but it is quite literally a fundamental link to a solid pack. It adds the perfect amount of structure to a slumping pack, and is able to be Contoured to your back. (Posted on 7/23/2015)

Works like a charm.

Basically it is a back support frame for the bag which prevents it from deformations due to bad packing.

Aluminium plates included. Adds on to the weight but maximises stiffness! (Posted on 7/3/2015)

So much needed structureReview by Ben
Price
Quality
Value
After ordering t.h.e. pack i and using, I quickly noticed that the bag needed some structure when carrying heavier loads. Saw the frame and hoped it would be the solution I was looking for...and it was! It adds a great amount of rigidity to the shape of the bag. It helps a lot on heavier loads, but also makes lighter loads too.
Honestly this is a must have item if you order t.h.e. Pack, so just order it upfront so you don’t pay more shipping than you need.
Oh and be warned it can be a pain to put in the first time. Its snug fit!

and people in hell wish for ice water, i know. this is almost required for t.h.e. pack to be useful, as otherwise t.h.e. pack justcollapses on itself and turns into pool of 1000d cordura, disguising the true awesome potential of t.h.e. pack. is pretty simple and basic concept, plastic sheet with metal stays to increase rigidity of pack. works as advertised, never had problem installing (have 2 of t.h.e. packs). oddly enough the cords to pull metal stays prevent a perfectly flat surface on interior, but is minor grip. i wish was included in pack or at least offered discount with purchase of t.he. pack.

Essential but pricey.Review by Scott

Quality

I guess it's not really "essential", but it makes a world of difference when you're hauling extra weight. It's a semi-stiff polymer black sheet with rounded edges, a stitched nylon webbing edge to buffer the friction contact between frame and pack and two sleeves for slipping in the two included metal flat bars. Good materials, well put together and a smart design. I just hate paying this much for it every time I get another T.H.E. (can't resist those sales!). Like I said, it's optional and you can get by without it. Food for thought... (Posted on 1/15/2014)

THE Pack FrameReview by Keith
I purchased two of these, one for my THE Pack and one for my THE Pack tactical (the newest model). Very well made and should work out well. The pouch on the earlier model pack fits the frame very tightly but does the job. The newer style pack is a breeze, just drop it into the new zipper compartment. I have not carried the pack with the frames yet but believe it will be worth the extra price. (Posted on 12/12/2013)

T.H.E. pack frame is a useful item for strengthening T.H.E. pack to carry heavier items and/or at full capacity. The aluminum stakes add to the sturdiness while the polymer provides the outline to make T.H.E. pack stand up to the weight of a full bag. (Posted on 12/6/2013)

there are 2 kinds of internal pack frames--aluminum stays and hard plastic inserts. the hard plastic inserts work better but are difficult to install and the edges are sharp. the aluminum stays are easy to install but not very supportive. the spec ops frame combines both types and tapes the edges. the frame fits perfectly. if you're planning on having the pack on for a long distance, the frame is essential.

Does it's job...Review by Josh
Price
Quality
Value
I ordered the pack frame a month or so after I had my T.H.E. pack. I realised that I wanted more support because the pack by itself tends to slump one way or another when there are things in it. The pack frame does what it's supposed to, adds the stiffness I wanted and gives the pack the right amount of support when I load it up for my days activities (I ride a motorcycle everywhere, so all my stuff has to be on my back). It's a pretty simple design for a $33 dollar piece of gear, but i'm not dissapointed that I got it, also, as another review stated, it is somewhat difficult to get in the pack. (Posted on 11/16/2011)

I bought this for my T.H.E. Pack because it helps with load bearing. Also, the pack slumps without something rigid holding it up. This serves very well for that purpose, but is a pain to get the aluminum stays in place. Once in place it's good to go. I really wish they were included, though. A little pricey but the pack really needs 'em, unless you're just hauling light stuff. (Posted on 3/28/2011)
