Crib Gogh Ridgeback Rogue Combat Bag/Rucksack
Crib Gogh – For The Ultimate Equipment to Survive the Extremities the World has to Offer. Designed and developed in the UK.
The Ridgeback Rogue is the first genuine tactical holdall to come to market giving the ultimate in versatility. Designed to meet the needs of both symmetrical and asymmetrical combat, from the most remote tropical jungle drops supplying the dismount that may have to escape and evade to meeting any and all urban tactical requirement. In a 55litre format with two expansion side pockets and internal storage it is designed to have everything in its place and a place for everything
Designed to be dropped as part of a remote replenishment it will survive a 100+ drop at 120knots from a helicopter with 35kilos of equipment.
It has a skeletal wrap that supports the YKK zips, preventing them from failing and allowing the dismount to roll the holdall in to a rucksack so that they can then return to their patrol base or layup point with both hands free and tactically ready
Complying with BS 13407-1999 all of the Ridgeback holdalls have a stress tolerance to exceed a 100 kilos payload. Designed to survive deployment across the most severe terrain and conditions: 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 Ridgeback Range of base-camp bags/tactical holdalls and equipment haulage solutions give the Brigade on the move options that they have never had before. They also have a six-way lid compression system that takes the pressures off a zip when fully loaded, which enhances the Ridgeback’s ability to survive a long range kit drop when replenishing troops on the move.
We have fitted crampon loops to each end and both sides, this allows the Ridgebacks to be daisy chained to create a crate sized load that can be air dropped or stowed in a ship’s hull, making the transportation of troops equipment that much easier. Crib Gogh not only thinks of the end user but we also take the logistical chain into the equation when we develop our kit.
The daisy chain system will also aid cover for troops in the most hostile situation, where the ability to improvise will save lives i.e. where they can link the crampon loops to make a pulk, a rope bridge to traverse a crevasse etc. The design also reduces the number of security locks to one bag, with all the accessory pockets on the inside of the bag.
