Inspired by the design of the traditional Korean jigae, the 'A-Frame' carrying frame features an ergonomic design that makes carrying equipment a more balanced effort.

The 'A-Frame' features a rear portion that affixes onto the back with accompanying straps, while the main frame provides support for the load. The cargo section allows multiple items to be stacked onto it and balanced thanks to the built-in pols that jet out from the back section to the front to be held in the hands.

The 'A-Frame' carrying frame is the design work of Ohhyon Kwon, Beomjun Jo and Nahyun Go. While the traditional jigae would've been made from wood, the 'A-Frame' is crafted using bent pipes and synthetic materials for maximum quality.
