medium alice pack

  1. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    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).

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    While doing the series on General Preparedness, I thought I should do a video on packing an Alice pack. I know that some people don't like the pack in question, I happen to use mine all of the time. I think one of the keys is not to overload the Alice. Anyway, if you have any questions feel free.

    OK, what is the correct way to attach the GI Sleep System Bag to the Medium Alice Pack with frame? Also is there a secure way to attach this while the pack frame shelf is in place also? I have tried different ways and they seem to smack around unsecured. Thanks! :thumb:

    I'm looking to get a new camping pack. I would only be out in the woods camping for 2 to 3 days at a time. What would y'all recommend for a pack? (Try to stay at $50 or below if possible tight budget)

    I have an Alice pack medium w/o frame that I am planning to use for my primary BOB. Does anyone out there have a favorite way for me to lash or attach my sleeping bag to my BOB? In a similar note I currently have my sleeping bag stored in the bag all rolled up. Is this the best way or should I...

    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...
