Instead of the standard frame, this U.S. Army Medium Rucksack includes the advanced Lightning Frame developed as a part of the U.S. military's EHAP (Energy Harvesting Assault Pack) initiative. Originally conceived as a way to reduce the impact of carrying extremely heavy loads, this double-frame spring-loaded suspension system could also reclaim some of the energy of walking and use it to charge batteries via a small electrical generator.

The impact-absorbing and ergonomic benefits of the "up and down" motion of this Pack are readily apparent for any long hike. However the interface for the electrical generator portion of the Frame requires additional military hardware not included. Whether an interesting military collectible, a working MOLLE-compatible backpack, or the start to a fascinating electrical/science project, this Rucksack with Lightning Frame could be just the thing you're looking for.
