  1. General Discussion
    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...

    Hi Guys, I just got a medium Alice frame pack for Christmas. But when I mounted it on the frame, the straps that mount the pack to the frame are four inches away from the triangle area that you are supposed to mount it in. Does anyone know how to fix this? I already have the pack pushed all the...

    There is a way to attach an internal radio pouch to the inside of a three day assault pack? At the top, inside of the assault pack, there are a couple of webbing attachment loops. What are they supposed to be for? It is a nice pack, I just wish it had some kind of internal pouch or pocket.

    So I was doing my first hike with my 3v Paratus and the belt did not stay cinched down. Just wondering if I am the only one experiencing this issue, or if it might be a problem with bag itself. Thanks!

    So I recently bought a Mossberg HS12 shotgun and I wanted to share my experience with it so far and the reason I went this direction. I was using an H&R single shot for hunting small game. The model I have is a 162 which has a front blade sight and a rear fold down sight similar to the setup...

    Hey everyone! I've finally started to solidify the list of contents for my bob. At the beginning I decided to use an old duffel I had laying around for the pack until I knew what I had to store, and then I would figure out what I needed in a bag. I've also tried out a few with different...

    (in a hypothetical SHTF scenario) In the event that you're carrying your rifle openly and intend to use it or are at risk of having to use it, how do you plan on carrying extra magazines, if at all? Why? Obviously the answer could differentiate between situations. Therefore, let's suppose...

    Hey guys, I'm saving up for a good back pack and was looking for an opinion from you guys. It will be going with me on tour with my band, when I go shooting/hunting/fishing/hiking/whatever. Pretty much any time I need a back pack. I have a molle (not sure if I spelled that right because I can't...

    Okay this occurred to me as lots of folks, including me, have been mentioning that you need to learn more bushcraft skills to be able to lighten your load. So I created this thread so that we may be able to identify all the items that we do not need to carry around with us, as we replace them...

    I'm going to design & build my own pack. I'm going to buy the raw materials and make mock-ups. My wife will probably end up doing most of the sewing. I'm going to take into account what I will use it for, what features I need, what features I want, how light I can make it, how tough I can...
