TrailFlex TF500 Harness System

With interchangeable components and an adjustable capacity, the TrailFlex TF500 Harness System allows you to attach and reconfigure several backpack and waist pack options and more than 20 custom-tailored gear pouches (including a GPS/radio pouch, camera pouch, binocular holder, organizer pockets, and medical kits) onto one torso harness.

It starts with the TrailFlex TF500 Harness, which comes in two torso lengths (medium and long) and has adjustable lumbar, shoulder, and sternum straps, and an integrated one-liter hydration pouch. You then can choose to add on either of two backpack versions—the top-loading Longitude or the panel-loading Latitude, both rated to hold up to 50 pounds—and any of a variety of gear pouches and accessories.

Overall, I was not satisfied with the durability of the TF500 harness. It's made of cheap materials (from China) that seem to fray after a couple of months of moderate use.

The pouches that lock on to the front or sides harness can easily fall off and there is no way of locking them securely.

And to top it off, I called the company to voice my dissatisfaction and encountered rude customer service.
I will never buy anything from this horrible company again.
