The ATS Tactical Gear RAID II is an update of the famous Lightfighter RAID pack. While the RAID was the premier assault pack, through hard use some areas of improvement were found, and incorporated into this updated design. The face of the pack has a zippered utility pocket for fast stowing of items, while maintaining the PALS webbing of the original pack. The inside face of the pack is also supplied with PALS webbing, for the attachment of any MOLLE compatible pouch. Organization can be accomplished in any way that works for you. The back panel of RAID II has four one-inch Tri Glides for tying into or tying down a wide variety of loads. The rear pocket can fit either hydration systems or an ATS frame sheet. Three flapped tube or wire routing ports at the 10, 12, and 1 o'clock are built in.
The greatest distinction between the RAID and RAID II packs is the shoulder straps. Through the input of Infantrymen, it was found that the thick straps of the RAID were hard to use when the pack was carried over armor. The ½ inch foam straps have been narrowed, and the attachment point strengthened and moved to the back panel rather than the top seam of the pack. Load lifters are provided to improved load carriage. Additionally, there is approximately three inches of vertical travel for the adjustable sternum strap. The pack measures 1512 cubic inches. Due to its 500D Cordura construction, the pack weighs in at only 2 ½ pounds.
