Crib Gogh Constrictor 35 Patrol Rucksack
Crib Gogh – For The Ultimate Equipment to Survive the Extremities the World has to Offer.
Designed and developed in the UK, This is the rucksack all other rucksacks aspire to be
A fully patented rucksack developed with a spinal surgeon from the Royal College of Physicians. It has a unique patented back system and chassis that allows any number of equipment configurations to be deployed in any given terrain of theatre and is carried with comfort over the most inhospitable terrains
Designed as a 35ltr day/patrol sack but will expand to carry 130ltrs of kit with add-ons attached through our patented chassis system.
With a truly unique multi-functional rucksack like no other: Previous rucksack manufacturers have tried to do the add-on with limited success but our patented system gives the combat soldier options like never before. All other rucksacks are static applications this is world first as it designed to evolve as and when technology is available the constrictor is ready to adapt and integrate it.
A consistant standard bearer in a number of bio-mechanical trials where the constrictor has been trialled against the market leaders and has come first.
The Constrictor was developed with a spinal surgeon from the RCP (Royal College of Physicians) and complies with BS 13407-1999. All the rucksacks have a stress tolerance to exceed a 100 kilo pay-load. They are designed to protect the spine and distribute weight correctly along the back, reducing wear and problems later in life with the lumbar region of the spine. All the bar-tacks machined-in exceed the industry standard and have set new breaking strains, to the point where the rucksacks will not only allow a wounded colleague to be dragged to safety, but will in fact tow a transit van. (Torque on a transit van is 3200nm, our breaking strain is 3411nm)
The system is completely unique, patented and has design copy right. It consists of the following features:
24 anchor points
20 lash points
7 compression straps

The Constrictor’s chassis system allows all awkward and unwieldy equipment to be loaded and secured to each of the anchor points on the chassis. This will allow any specialist combat equipment to be attached without compromising the carriers PPE, such as a field combat medics kit and associated stretchers, defibrillator etc, an ECM, mortar/LAWS attachments, giving full lateral twist and articulation from C7 to the iliac line. These allow faster response times when loaded.
The Constrictor is a 35+8ltr patrol rucksack that is a top loader. It is designed and built to last. When the add-ons are attached to the anchor points it will expand to 130ltr removing the requirement for a full size Bergen. We have 2 back sizes which fit the ninety five percentile requirement of the UK MoD and complies with the human elements factors, it is suitable for women. (The Long Back is a special order only). The add-ons are mission specific and can be tailored to suit the individual regiment’s requirements. (Medical, SF, Engineers etc). We have a 7.62 belt fed system for a GPMG that feeds straight from the back of the sack for support fire teams (removing breach contamination on current operations). This can be tailored to 5.56 LMG. This allows the weapon to remain in the users hands at all times, removing the issues currently suffered by MOLLE. It is the only true modular back system on the market at the moment and it is the only complete combat system that will integrate within different units reducing logistical headaches and in-theatre compliance issues.
This is not a static application and it has been designed to evolve with technologies as and when they are ready to go into service. It will serve and excel in both a symmetrical combat scenario and in any asymmetrical combat environment.
The current trend to front loaders/Panel loader/Clam shell rucksacks have a single point of failure and many seasoned veterans in combat (as well as extreme survival) tend to favour the top loader and the Constrictor is 85% field-serviceable but it that well made we feel that this is highly unlikely that it will ever let you down. We offer a limited lifetime warranty with this unit.
The trials and development team have trialled the Constrictor against the market leaders in a number of bio mechanical tests (information source http://www.a-esolutions.com/index.php?id=testing-new-rucksacks-field-trial and their independent comment) and it has consistently come first in all areas.
The constrictor has undergone a huge number of trials and developments and has been tested in the Jungle, Desert, Urban and the Arctic and it is the only rucksack that has been tested and certified to STANAG 2895.
