ENGINEERED TO PERFORM

“A loaded combat ruck must be stable so that both energy and situational awareness are not sapped away trying to maintain balance.
Yet, the load must be dynamically distributed so that natural, athletic movement and comfort are enhanced.
Our pack-frames are engineered to do exactly this.”
-Frank Howell, CEO & Chief Designer of Down East Innovation

For over thirty years, Down East Innovation has been developing and producing a wide variety of products, primarily for the United States military.
