In the army patrolling with a full load out was standard.

Full load for the last 40 years or so (my entire 28) was 210 rounds. (7 x 30 rd mags) NOT 500 of one caliber, plus 1,000 of another.

Also, even if you did have your pack with sustainment load... it wasn't a pack AND a large duffle bag. It was an ALICE (med or lge) or a MOLLE, or ILBE if a Marine... but you don't patrol with no dufflebag in one hand, and a weapon in the other, plus the pack, plus 3 times normal ammo load...

In Iraq in 04-05 we had double issue of ammo. That was heavy enough that a lot of guys left the second load in a vehicle. I got SAW pouches, and had 6 per side on my body armor, 1 in the gun, and 1 in a pouch on the stock.

Me: 6' 1" 230 (solid muscle) mid 40s.
PFC 5' 10" 165 (skinny, but fit) mid 20s.

Me: "Throw my vest in the truck, I'll be right back."

PFC: "Sure thing Sarge." HOWEVER... 5 seconds later... "Holy ****, this thing is heavy."
