Both products offer an unequalled level of performance and user comfort with the ProPak-fx featuring an adjustable backplate on a rigid backframe construction for durability and performance. The unique backplate design plays a crucial role in reducing user burden as it is both durable and lightweight. Integral grab handles make it easy to carry when not in use and for when emergency rescue is required.
