    The medium ALICE pack can be used without a frame, but I would like to hear from people who have used it with and without the frame and which one they feel best about. I have a medium ALICE pack on a frame, and that is the only way I have ever used it. The frame seems to draw the top of the...

    Hey Guys. I will be traveling to Haiti this year, and I want a rugged backpack that I don't mind if it gets dirty or torn. So I thought of my Alice Pack. The problem is, I don't know it the external frame would be a problem with TSA, and if it is within the size restrictions. I will have...

  5. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    Are alice packs comfortable for backpacking? I have read that they were comfy and that they were the worst thing on the planet. Also for 5 day or less trips which would be better, medium or large?

    I've been debating back and forth for awhile between getting a Helcat and the ILBE, and have decided to go with the ILBE. One of the things I liked about the Helcat but haven't seen addressed with the ILBE is that the Helcat that had a specific pouch for the MSS. I was wondering how everyone...

    I managed to find a CFP-90 pack in excellent condition on eBay for under 80 bucks, and would like some assistance in modifying this to fit my needs. A disclaimer for those who have heard horrible things about the CFP-90, the horror stories of packs busting open at the seams only happens on...

    I got real lucky. Like I did with my MSS set, I managed to get in on the bidding of an ILBE at the last minute in the wee hours of the morning and scored this one in new condition with a new lid, no stains, no tears, no wear, no names written on it. It's in absolutely great condition in/out...

    I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times but does a military backpack with molle used as a bug out bag attract unwanted attention or is it fine to use one?

    Is the ALICE system frame really that bad? Can some old Devil Dogs (or soldiers) from the days of ALICE tell me their thoughts and some of the pros/cons on it? I figure if it was good enough for Chesty, it's good enough for me...(figuratively speaking).

    Hey all, i'm looking to get a BOB for around $50. I currently have an alice but the giant 1 pocket system is too unorganized for my liking. so i'm looking for either a decent pack for a decent price or a pocketed option that uses the ALICE frame.

    These are bags you can setup, to be grabbed and thrown into a car in a SHTF Emergency. I got most of these things on Amazon over a period of time. They sell everything the cheapest, with extremely quick shipping. Feel free to add suggestions. And heres a video of BOB (Bug Out Bag) Basics...

    There are hundreds of choices out there, but I made my purchase from a guy who had a really hard to find page I somehow landed on. I got a MOLLE Rifleman's back, the frame, two survivalist pouches, and it came pre-rigged (which if you don't know how can be a MAJOR pain.. REALLY) I thought I'd...

    Here's what I've purchased so far: Four large alice packs with frames and straps. Done. I want to build one for myself, my son, and my daughter. The fourth I haven't decided yet......I'm new and I've...

    I've seen this small pack being used in addition to ALICE packs that fits behind the hip strap and tucks between the frame of the ALICE pack. Anyone know what that small pack is called?

  17. Urban Survival
    I'm wondering what people recommend and why. I'm leaning towards MOLLE, but I see many people here recommending ALICE. I don't see any reason for it, and no one really gives a reason. I like MOLLE because of all the pouches that can be connected. I just want to know why a lot of people pick...

    I have a rather odd question about the alice pack, how comfortable is it for backing about 15 pounds of gear? My current back is a Cableas elite scout and I am not happy with on a four mile hike, the shoulder straps just aren't right for me. I did try on a framed Alice pack and it seemed all...

    I have this campers backpack that is pretty awesome, was bought many years ago (from my childhood, Im 33 yrs old now). But its just too big. I need something I can wear while I ride a horse or motorcycle. This one the frame goes down near or past the buttocks :xeye: and I cant sit comfortably...

    Hello.. Red here,, I am going to use a medium ALICE pack for day hikes. I got my medium pack in today and I plan on using it frameless. I noticed on the bottom of the pack that the shoulder straps were attached to a set of buckle lashings on each side of the pack! I also noticed on the bottom of...
