Eberlestock made the Skycrane II to lead the way in modern military backpack design.
The J79 is the second-generation Skycrane, developed from the J263 Skycrane I. The J79 Skycrane II is a 3 in 1 modular load bearing pack system. The three primary bags are the basic J79 pack, the pullout G1 “Little Brother” pack, and a removable fanny/courier pack. These components make up the basic system and create a volume of 4475 cubic inches.
The Eberlestock Skycrane II’s unique design allows it to perform exceptionally well in a variety of configurations. It is reducible all the way down to a fanny pack, and scalable all the way up to a full-scale 8,375 cubic inch freighter. The basic pack, unlike most pack frames, has some essential storage capacity, so you will always have hydration and survival gear storage, no matter which way you configure the system.
Above all, it is designed for comfort, to ride well day after day, and to increase the agility of those who are lucky enough to have the Skycrane at the heart of their mission-essential gear.
