DG3 55L patrol pack. An excellent ruck for the average infantry guy. It is an external frame top-loading pack that can be converted into an internal frame pack for vehicle borne ops. It features removable bladder and radio pouches. 55l is a perfect size for a patrol pack.Pic 2&3 Shows what I can carry in one 55l pack. This loadout allows me a very comfortable stay for three days during summer, spring and autumn. There is still room for rations and ammo.If you are operating in a team, spread some gear to free up more room. E.g. Not everyone needs a basha or cooking kit. Which equipment would you ditch? What would you shift into your second line?Pic 4: Use waterproof Stuffsacks and packing cubes to compress and organize your kit. Compress but don't overcompress as you may have to repack your stuff in a rush. Organize smart, for example, your sleeping equipment should be stowed in one dry bag on the bottom, as it's not the set of gear you need hasty access to.Pic 5: Get heavy loads more towards your back. Make sure the ruck closes without too much tension.Pic 6&7: If you need to carry a radio or more ammo consider adding a small assault pack as a hitchhiker or even add 5l canteen pouches to the exterior. Two of them enlarge the packs size to 65l. You don't always need a 120l long-range pack.

DG3 is an awesome bag. Great versatility where it can be fairly compact or expanded and also internally framed or externally framed. Very comfortable and stable.

    I use the 3-day DG-3 as a “day pack” for carrying gear for 2 people on short 1-day rucks/hike (my son and I). It’s innovative pelvic/shoulder/lumbar harnessing/padding adjustment system, pockets, internal “lost arrow” attached bags and inside compartment space alone, allows you a variety of options to adjust load to use the DG-3 as a 2-person day pack, especially useful in steep slope rock-scrambling over granite boulders to summit hike or bugout downhill at a safe ruck speed after being caught in severe weather, winds 50+ gusting! 500 Cordura is stain-resistant ; wipe off with damp cloth. Hard-wearing, it’s not easily caught by twigs and branches stomping through bush. My colour pick, MC by choice as I personally thinks its more forgiving, not showing wear and tear as much. DG-1 + DG-3 rucks = great choice for 2 person 1 day hike.

    I purchased this pack online and I guess you can say that it was a lucky find. When I decided to give the DG3 Wildcat a go, I was completely smitten right from the beginning. I still am, even after nearly a year on. It’s tonka tough and packs a ton of features. I am confident this pack will see me through more than a decade of use and abuse. I absolutely love it. So glad I came across it. And to think I was close to buying one of those hiking pack that I know will rip and tear with my kind of treatment.

    You know what the best thing about it guys ? It not only comes with amazing and sincere customer care but it is Australian ! Many many thanks to Glenn for his support.

    I bought his pack because I had picked up a DG2 secondhand (incomplete) a while back and was impressed by the rugged construction. wow what can I say? the construction is top shelf and unmatched to anything I’ve seen. The customising ability is amazing & easy; hence the comfort level in use is metaphorically like pure silk boxers. I doubt there is a better short-term bug-out bag on the market. This is worth every cent paid, without any doubt. If anyone is considering this product I sincerely suggest you do so for your benefit. Now I am saving for thee long range patrol pack. service & delivery was extremely prompt. I love this company, a pleasure to support. thanks Crossfire!

    The last pack Ill ever need. Does it all. Comfiest load Ive had to carry, ever. Long hikes, climbing, scrambling, creek stomping – all done without feeling like the load I was carrying was adding to the difficulty of the terrain. Did a hike Ive done before and finished a mess, and felt so much easier with this pack.

    First time out with Crossfire DG-3, its a 55 liter, 3 day pack. Not a lot of hype or press, so I bought it based on a few videos out there and price. It is great quality, reasonably priced and more importantly, the DG-3 has the best suspension in a bag of this type. I have MR, Arcteryx, TAD, Savotta, Granite Gear, Med. ALICE, Med. MOLLE, etc. for comparison.

    This pack is perfect for a few days out field, even up to a week. You can fit almost an entire marching order plus a day pack into this. Then chuck some pouches on and you can fit your rats too. Oh and it’s super comfortable and ergonomic and narrow- sits snug on your back. Couldn’t be happier.

    I’ve been using my DG-3 for a couple of years now. I find the harness one of the most comfortable I’ve encountered. In short, I am impressed with my DG-3. A very comfortable and flexible design. With the way that the pack sits on my body, there is sufficient clearance to allow for air flow across the back. Fills the niche for shorter range treks, such as general walking trips overnight or no more than a couple of day’s duration. The size of the pack without external pouches fitted is good for leaving on and manoeuvring in relatively tight spaces. I was able to still sit in a normal dining room chair with chest webbing and loaded pack (sans pouches) on.
