    Imlay packs (and many other brands) have parts that can be removed when useful to splint broken limbs.

    The Kolob (incl Shenanigans) and the Heaps (incl Shinumo) have removable back foam pad and aluminum rods as stays that work fairly well for splinting legs and arms. The Spry, Pandora and Mystery have a plastic sheet and back foam; the Leprechaun has a quite modest piece of back foam. I am happy to replace them for free if used.
