Default Why Are ALICE Packs So Enduring

Advertise Here

When it comes time to head to the hunting camp, or maybe go on a camping trip, how many people think of grabbing their trusty ALICE pack? Chances are there are a lot of readers who have never used an ALICE pack, so they probably can not relate.

For those of you who have never had an ALICE pack, think about a friend who has never let you down. Or maybe a pet who will always be glad to see you. Something that is reliable and will get the job done.

However, in an age of technology, space age polymers, and where just about everything is comfort driver, why has something dating from the 1960s remained so enduring? Maybe because of how durable and simplistic the ALICE pack is?

They are so enduring because they are so "enduring", and just plain reliable. Mine is 40+ years old and I would still trust my life to it.

They made lots of them. Most USGI gear is at least ok, so on surplus they are very reasonable in price vs. performance. I couldn't wait to use my own pack a Kelty D-4
