Heavy load. Rough terrain.

Whether you’re packing bull quarters back to your rig, or shed hunting in the Spring, nothing carries large loads out of bounds like the Rail Hauler Frame. Available as an alternative to the Rail Hauler 2500, it’s perfect for hunters who already have a backpack but need a heavy-load solution. The strong – yet lightweight – aluminum frame is designed to hold up to 200 pounds. Wrap-around ‘wings’ and a vertical strap system securely hold your load in place, while a folding bottom shelf supports the weight. Multiple rows of PALS webbing give you plenty of options for attaching gear & accessories. And the cutting-edge Kryptek® multi-level Mandrake and Highlander camo patterns help you vanish into your surroundings.

    1. Not for heavy loads

      I have had my SJK for a few months now, and have logged no less than 50 miles with varying loads. It has spent most of it life as an aid to my fitness with a few trips into the woods. I have no problems the durability of the pack, but as my title states I feel that it is best suited for loads 40# and less. In my opinion the shoulder are just fine. At 6' tall I wouldn't mind the load lifters being mounted a little higher on the frame. The problem is in the waist belt, and starts with materials. The fabric on the waist belt is supper slick. This makes it very difficult to keep your load weight on your hips. I also think that a denser foam in the lumbar and hip pad with a little bit more realistate would help correct this problem. I do like the versatility of this pack. With a little imagination the possibilities are endless. I wish the compression straps started at least 4" further apart to aid in tightening smaller loads. I would use this pack for backpacking trips or shed hunting, but don't overzealous and pack out half an elk in one load. on May 14th 2016

    2. Nice and light!

      I really like the pack- it fits nicely and just seems like part of your back. I wish it had a couple of exterior pockets with zippers for small items you would like to have with you. A zipper on the inside flap pockets would also be nice. One last thing if I had my choice- maybe throw on some water bottle pockets onto the belt. I like pockets/water bottle holders I can access without having to remove my pack. I get out in nasty canyons and go for hours, so the pack is great for that, I just have to couple it with a small pack with pockets. on May 6th 2016

    3. Rail Hauler review

      Great pack frame. I'm super impressed with how well this frame is built. I've been training with this frame for the Train To Hunt competitions with a 105 lbs on it. This pack frame handles the weight with ease. I can't wait to get this rail hauler frame on the mountains to pack out some quarters this Summer and Fall. on May 5th 2016

    4. Best Pack I've Owned!

      Great size and weight, this frame is just all around awesome! Very solid, very well built, I got mine complete with backpack and for me it's the perfect system, I can fit everything I need for a few days in the backcountry and then the hauler will handle anything I will pack out! Great system! on Apr 26th 2016

      Best frame pack by far. I guide here in Northern Utah and have used many different packs and frame packs. Hands down this is the best frame pack made!! on Nov 2nd 2015

    6. Customer Review

      This pack is a hauler. The frame feels sturdy even under an 80-90 Lbs. load. My first time out with it, there was 3 Ft of snow in the Snowy Range here in Wyoming. It's a beast and carry's well in and out of the trees. The lower profile works nicely in the forest. Great job SJK. on Jun 21st 2015

    7. Customer Review

      I picked up the Rail Hauler Frame pack to use as my heavy meat hauler for elk hunting. I'll drop my Carbine 2500 along with some camping gear into the Rail Hauler frame for my hike into the backcoutry. Once I have camp set up, I'll carry the Carbine 2500 daily, while keeping the Rail Hauler ready for meat pack out. I've been doing some test hikes with both packs and I've found the Hauler to be comfortable and stable. It can take a heavy load, i've been carrying firewood around the trails, I even pack in my chain saw with this pack. I've found it to be a super versatile big n heavy load hauler. I'm very pleased with the quality and attention to details. External frame packs have come a long way since the old days. I'd be happy to use this pack hunting or backpacking. Thumbs up for the Rail Hauler Frame pack by SJK! on Sep 30th 2014
