    In terms of a bug out bag for a petite woman, does anyone have any recommendations? My wife is 5'4", 110 lbs. Are there any companies that make expedition packs catering to petite women?

    Anyone own one of the 1st generation USMC ILBE backpacks? How are they? Do they have visible external frames? Some pictures of the padding and frame would be nice if anyone has some.

    Hello, I have a few questions for the experienced guys out there. I was wondering what size pack most guys carry for an EDC or day pack. I have two new ones and can not decide which one to use. I first got a new GI molle II assault pack (around 1500ci). This is a perfect size for a two hour...

    Hey guys. I live in the 'burbs but work downtown. I'm starting to think about what I'd like to have in my backpack (which I take with me everywhere at work) in an emergency or SHTF scenario. I don't want to have the thing stuffed to the gills and I don't want to walk around with a monster...

    Some forum members have sent PM's to me regarding the use of a medium Alice Pack with an external frame. (A commercial frame, not the Alice frame). A high quality, well designed backpacking frame solves many problems of the Alice system in terms of comfort and load carrying capability. The...

    I'm interested into getting a US Army Field Pack, Large With Internal Frame [FPLIF] or Combat Field Pack M-1990 [CFP-90], is it any good? At the moment I have a Medium ALICE pack but I don't particularly like the external frame and I find it's internal capacity a bit on the small side. I also...

    What kind of bug out bag (BOB) are you using? Backpack, dufflebag, or something else. The one I use is my companies bullet resistant backpack (level IIIa). The panel only adds 20 ounces additional weight. My wife's has a smaller backpack and adds our stand alone panel (level IIIa) into it...

    My current day pack is a jansport school backpack. Even though it was cheap, it is a well built pack that has served me well for about 12 years. The pack is only about 1,200 - 1,500 cubic inches. Just big enough for food, water, hammock, extra socks and shirt, poncho, poncho liner, gps...

    I have seen the discussions about ALICE packs. Is there any downside from buying a regular backpack vs. a military style pack? Thinking about a used Kelty 5000 cc external frame pack.

    The All-Purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment (also know as " ALICE Pack "), was first introduced by United States Army in 1974. The ALICE pack was intended as a replacement to the aging M-1956 Load-Carrying Equipment [LCE] and M-1967 Modernized Load-Carrying Equipment. The ALICE...

    Ok. I thought it would be cool to see what folks have waiting and ready as a bug out bag, or whatever. Not talking about fallout shelter, or tactical gear. Just about the bag you have sitting and waiting, or the pickup truck that's loaded and waiting to go, or whatever is laying in wait as a...

    New user so I'm sure I'm asking a question already discussed, sorry. I'm looking for waterproof (or as close as you can get) backpacks to use as BOB. Has anyone run across items like this? Thanks.
