Question Concealed Carry with Alice Pack??



Advertise Here

I have just bought a medium Alice Pack and I see there is a place behind my back while wearing it that you can put a water bottle as mentioned on another thread here. Has anyone rigged up a CCW holster in this area???

I am familiar my alice doesn't have that??? Hmm...just get a IWB and you'll get to it quicker. However for safety reasons if you drop your pack or have to drop it, you won't have an AD.

I just ghetto rigged a holster to my alice and it looks like it would be fine. Try it. Make sure you're actually flexible enough to reach behind you like that with the alice cinched up and waist strap on.

iwb with an alice sounds like it would rub me completely raw. Are you guys carrying somewhere from 10-2? I don't see how you could have the kidneypad on without it completely pressing the pistol into your side and having the alice at a really wierd angle.

There is space to rig a holster, but I'm sure I couldn't reach it. If you seriously want to ccw with that pack, get an alice pouch that is large enough to house a holster, and sew one in.

Yeah I will have to play around with this rig. I found a paper from Army training in the map pocket on what to load for training on a side note.

That's just the packing list for that company/brigade, it's pretty light.

It looks like an AIT unit or a support unit. No one uses the goretex jacket and it's missing the etool/2 qt and mres.

Just pack your ruck with what you want. Don't worry about that second pair of boots, it's a basic training thing mostly. I don't know anyone who could spare the weight to hump a 2nd pair of boots.


I'd be somewhat concerned about having my ccw attached to the bag if you live anywhere that you may have to dump it, which is pretty much anywhere near water. You don't want to lose your weapon/first aid/fire starter if you fall in coldass water and have to ditch it. Alot of dudes have drowned in af/iraq because they couldn't ditch their gear in time. When you have 100+ lbs of crap on, you'll just sink like a rock.

I bought a manpurse just to carry if shtf. Until then, I'm using it as an organizer inside of a larger bag.

I always carried a spare set of boots while in the USMC, and boy did it save my ass one time. I was in a convoy heading out to the field when we stopped for a break, as i jumped off the 5 ton the heel of my boot fell off!

These were USGI spec all leather boots,, what we called our Cadillacs, i'm so glad i had my jungle boots in my pack, i would have had to go the whole time with a boot with no heel!

I know there is always too much to carry,, and if you didn't bend the frame on your ALICE pack your not carrying enough ****!

Carried extra while deployed or in garrison? Garrison packing lists were like 40 pounds tops. When we were overseas we had 100+, an at4 or cls or skedco or ammo for the 249s and on a couple missions we humped extra mortar rounds. On our first mission they told us to add in our cold weather boots... that no one had broken in and we had never worn (stationed in NC). Those boots went in then came right out as we realized how much crap they had told us to bring.

The early desert boots had issues with the glue in them and the sole would literally fall off. We just repaired it with duct tape and let the guys whos boots were falling apart as security.
