    A few months ago, I purchased a Large Alice Pack. The purpose of this pack would be a backpacking/camping pack, but also I wanted something that could be used as a Bug-Out Bag. However, I have had some problems with this pack. The first one is that it is incredibly painful for my pack. When I...

    When it comes time to head out to the woods, I usually take a few minutes to think about what I'am going to be doing and what kind of gear I may need. If I'am going on a simple day hike, I might bring the Maxpedition Falcon-II Pygmy, if its an overnight trip I might bring the Vulture-II and if...

    I find it interesting that Taco Bell can create so many items on their menu by mixing and matching about eight different ingredients. There is the taco meat, sour cream, refried beans, tortilla shell, taco shell,,,,. But by the looks of the Taco Bell menu, it appears they have a thousand...

    These Alice Packs have been issued but are in very good condition. They are only $20 plus shipping. Send me a PM with your zip for shipping prices. The pack themselves look almost new. They come typical with the main compartment with the dry compartment inside. On the outside, there are three...

    I'm sure this has been asked to death but I did a search and couldnt find what I'm looking for..... So, I'm trying to decide between buying a "military pack" (5.11) or a civvie pack. I have either the RUSH 72 from 5.11 in green TAC OD or one from either Gregory (Deva 85) or REI (neutral colors...

    Looking for a long-range, high capacity pack. I've pretty much narrowed it down to: Kifaru EMR. Can buy off a friend, used in excellent shape in OD for $300 even. https://kifaru.net/MGemr.htm 7500 cubic inches. Bigger of the two, and Molle compatible (can piggyback a day pack easier)...

    So I'm looking to buy a small BOB/pack. Not necessarily for long-term survival, but something that will help in a SHTF situation, or just camping. My budget is quite small and this will be put together over a couple of weeks. Needless to say, I've been looking for a cheap pack/bag to use. I...

    I am officially looking for the biggest my bad boy pack I can find. I currently use an Arytech USMC Ilbe main and assault pack in one. http://www.olive-drab.com/od_soldiers_gear_ilbe_usmc.php My Ilbe can handle 120 pounds over a long haul. Is there a pack that can haul more weight? I want to...

    Hi All.. A quick and dumb question about my ALICE Pack.. I am going to be using my pack to haul radio gear on a hiking expedition.. I noticed on my pack there are two padded "pockets" on the frame side. Does the LC-2 frame slip under both, or just the top one (with top one has the slot for the...

    I am looking for a good 2 to 3 day pack. Lots of pockets. Tough. Inexpensive. I like the one listed by lapolicegear.com for $29 but they haven't had any OD green packs in for a long time. (don't want black) Are there any comparable packs out there at a comparable price? (or a little more)

    Looking for a good quality 2 - 3 day pack?  The Maxpedition Vulture-II might be just what your looking for.  When your looking at backpacks, there seems to be small, medium, large and super large. Small - good for day hikes and short trips Medium - good for day hikes or overnight trips Large...

    After about 15 years of using the medium ALICE pack as my primary warm/hot weather backpack, I decided it was time for a change. So I got on Ebay and after looking through some of the listings, I decided to go with the large MOLLE pack with internal sleep system carrier. There are 2 versions...

    I have switched over to a large molle II pack as my main camping pack - except when I'am going lightweight. The problem is, the large molle II lacks external pouches. I added a small maxpedition clam pouch, which is about 6 X 4 - its great for small items like my wallet and keys. What I need...

    I have had the privilege to use many packs in my time, some I bought and some Uncle Sam gave to me… And now I am still buying packs… But I tend to differ from most backpackers thoughts and ways… Many people in today’s world want a small light pack… Now I am all for light but I care less about...

    I keep a prepped 3-day pack in the car trunk and in the home (both courtesy of the US Navy), and also a 3-dayer in behind the truck seat. However for camping trips I take my old dependable and durable commercial backpack. It's unique for a few of reasons. First, I got it for Christmas 1976, I...
