    I am watching a military surplus medium MOLLE pack with frame on Ebay. The shoulder straps are wore out and a couple are tore in half. So, I thought about buying the pack and ordering some replacement shoulder straps. The problem is, I am not sure of what the NSN number is for the...

    Just ordered a surplus MOLLE II Patrol Assault Pack off ebay, does not include the stiffener. Do I need to order the stiffener? I saw a video with a similar pack that had a frame. So, I am a little confused. Is the frame being called a stiffener? Here is the pack I ordered...

    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 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 read that ALICE pack frames break often and I noticed that the frames are partially riveted together. So I was wondering why use rivets at all if the frame can be welded? It seems like a simple solution to make the ALICE pack frame tougher, after all bike frames are welded and do not use...

To make a long story short the bag is to small and my 2 person Coleman hooligan takes up half the bag, which leaves almost nothing for...
