FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is the CONFIGR8 System compatible with the older generation EXOTEC pack systems?
The answer is YES and No. Yes, the new CONFIGR8 Chest protectors will fit straight onto the older packs. NO, the POV and OCTANE Tech vest will not fit the older EXOTEC back packs. If you’re not sure or we have confused you please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will talk you through it.
Why are some elements of the CONFIGR8 pack system not compatible with older packs?
To give the POV Harness and OCTANE Tech Vest the adjustable range they need for a perfect fit, we needed to lower the ladder lock system in the backpack for more adjustability. As a result the harnesses are longer, so when fitted to the older style backpack with a higher positioned ladder lock system the harness cannot be shortened enough for a secure comfortable fit. In some cases, taller larger users the POV and OCTANE tech vest can be worn with older pack models. As a general rule you need to be taller than 5’10” with a medium to solid build for comfortable fit. Please contact us at email@example.com for more guidance if required. We do recommend you take your early model pack to a dealer a dealer to confirm the fit works for you if not sure.
Can I fit a new CONFIGR8 pack to an older generation chest plate?
Yes – However, you will first need to upgrade the shoulder guards to the new CONFIGR8 model. They are available as an optional spare part.
Why can’t I fit the old chest plate to the new CONFIGR8 backpack?
The older shoulder guards have a much shorter ladder lock strap and as such will not reach the new lower positioned attach point of the CONFIGR8 pack system. This is solved by upgrading to the new EXOTEC CONFIGR8 shoulder guards sold separately as an accessory if required, they are available in M/L and XL/XXL sizes.
Can the Matrix tool pack be worn with older generation back packs?
Can the Matrix tool pack be integrated to the backpack when the Chest plate is being used?
No, The chest plate uses the 38mm quick release buckles required for the tool pack to be integrated – However the Matrix tool pack has been designed with a removable tool roll insert that allows you to easily load your tools from the Tool pack into the back pack for this reason. Please also remember that the Matrix tool pack can be worn independently of the backpack as it has it’s own waist belt extension.
