US Army Individual Integrated Fighting System

The Integrated Individual Fighting system (IIFS) consists of :

  • the individual Tactical Load Bearing Vest (ITLBV) , 
  • the 40mm Grenade Vest , 
  • the Field Pack , Large with Internal Frame (FPLIP) , 
  • and the Extreme Cold Weather Sleeping System (ECWSS)

The IIFS was designed to improve efficiency through more even distribution of the load weight and reduce bulk.The Components of the system are constructed of lightweight materials to reduce overall weight .
The ECWSS will provide enviromental protection between +40°F and -45°F ( +5°C and -46°C ) and is intended to be used with the foam sleeping mat.

IFFS System Description

The IFFS is composed of eight separate equipment and clothing items that , when used together will lighten individual combat loads.When used with the components of Extreme Cold Weather Sleeping System the ECWSS  will afford protection for various enviromental conditions .
