eBay find: AOR2 Granite Gear Chief

I used to think these were rarer, but I'm starting to see more of them pop up now. Until recently I thought multicam and coyote were the only two colors these were available in.

Two things stand out to me:
firstly, even the suspension side is completely patterned. Most of the AOR2 packs I see are Mystery Ranch rucks that have black mesh on the back panel and inside hipbelt. I'm sure it doesn't matter but it is impressive that GG can source all their fabrics in AOR2.
Secondly this pic shows there are in fact plastic stiffeners in the belt, which might explain why these are rated for so much more weight then their backpacking cousins with a very similar looking belt.
