Apex DPX updated
'Not Just a Rig, it's Home!' Apex BASE is excited to announce the Apex DPX, a harness and container system originally designed by Master Rigger Moe Villetto in the early 1990s. The new version is available now through Apex BASE. This innovative design incorporates a 'trunk' for carrying food, water, tents, camp stoves and sleeping bags, and/or extra clothing, camera equipment, first aid kits and climbing equipment in a manner that allows items to be carried at the same time the rig is being jumped.
The Apex DPX can be jumped either in the expanded (full) or compressed (empty) configuration. In the compressed configuration the rig appears like any normal BASE container. There are two BOC pockets, one is used when the rig is compressed the other is used when the rig is expanded. The BOC spandex pouch is protected by layer of para-pack.
Between the expertise of Moe Villetto and BR's Todd Shoebotham the new version of the Apex DPX has undergone many improvements. For instance the original version was closed using a conventional Velcro shrivel flap while the newer version uses dual pins along the lines of Apex's DP container. The compressible area that is the storage compartment has been re-designed to be simpler, cleaner, and easier to manipulate.
