Default alice pack straps



Advertise Here

Does any one know how to attach the shoulder straps to an alice pack lc-2 without the frame? I have read the manual but am not sure if i got it right. Some pics would be nice. I think i have the top parts and lower quick detach assembly correct but am not sure how to attach the loop on the bottom strap threw the D ring with the straps down there on each side already on the bag.

Just tie it in a knot. :D

Honestly, I've had 2 ALICE packs, and I've never figured out the "right" way. Never found anyone to show me either...including soldiers who they were ISSUED to, hehehe.

I will try and take pics for you, its hard to explain. However, if you have the large Alice pack you cannot attach straps without the frame. It is not designed to be used without the frame.

I had thought for the large alice pack without the frame. you could use a dial (or some like it)were the top of the frame goes, this would be something for the straps attach too.
Don't know how cumfy it would be.

I bought some moderately-padded shoulder straps for my medium Alice. Where can I get some more comfy straps?
Thanks

Have done exactly that, used a piece of wood where the top of the frame would be. Comfort level..... so/so IMO there are much better packs available.

Attach the bottom straps first. Pull the looped end through the D Ring and then pull the entire straps through the loop. Pull tight and then attach the top straps. Done.

Okay, I got my medium OD alice pack today and saved money b/c I wanted no straps since everything I heard said to upgrade them. I got a g.i. unissued pack (brand new), so whats the best straps to install for the money? I will probably go frameless for now since my BOB contents uses only 2000 cu. in (sleeping bag and canteens are on the outside). I only paid $15.95 for the pack(bag) itself, so dont want to spend $100 for straps. Are the $30 blackhawk ones any good?

Cool thread at the gun show today they had I think 4 of them for $5.00 each, I didn't get one because I saw they had no straps so I'll go back sunday and get one or two.

friend of mine had an alice pack, no frame, was able to use an old boy scout pack frame and it worked real well. the frame is L shaped and was pretty comfy.
