    Very cool article- the stuff of movies for real. I'm not sure I completely believe the hype, but it's really pretty interesting stuff.

    Cool Article but I can't see a 185LB Soldier carrying a 200LB Pack for a long period with a wounded comrade on his back even using the HULC . Sounds like "Starship Toopers" and the "Mobile Infranty" to me. Works today "Kill The Bugs!!".
