I used my old Large Alice for about 20 years, but now use and Osprey. I like keeping the sleeping bag inside the bag a lot. It keeps dry and carries better. I do not miss the outside MRE pouches on the Alice pack. I greatly prefer the Osprey. It is far more comfortable, better padding and overall more ergonomic. It cost about $100, so if money is an issue, the Alice pack will work, but it is a crude substitute.
