BOB opinion: 'Nam era ALICE pack?

Recommended Posts

Truthfully, MOLLE is nice but not necessary (and I have alot of it). I think $55 is high tho. There are a few threads on here about ALICE packs and sites linked. 101Matt got 2 packs and frames for that price. There was also a good link and info for a shop in AL (I believe) that had much better prices. ALICE packs are great and handle alot of abuse just get the best deal you can and use the savings for after market shoulder pads, sternum strap and kidney pad.

I saw large ALICE packs w/ frame on ebay for around 30$. And I found large ALICE packs at the store Fleet Farm for 18.

 

ALICE packs are rugged and a large can hold a ton of gear, and are quite affordable. I personally have a large one for my BoB. However I plan on upgrading to the new MOLLE ruck when I can afford it (which is gonna be a while lol). The newer packs have more pockets and its easier to organize your gear. I suppose it just depends on how much money you have to spend, and which features are important to you.

FWIW I have a large alice, molle 2 assault pack, and molle 2 ruck.

 

The Alice pack I bought for $35 shipped on ebay with frame I think for hauling all my guns and ammo to the range.

 

It works fine, it's just not flexible and modular like the molle packs. It also doesn't hug your back like a molle, so it sways. How can you go wrong for $35 though.

 

The assault pack I use as a get home bag.

 

The molle 2 ruck is pretty big, and with all the extra molle bags attached makes it customizable to just how you want it. It's really nice.

I recently purchased a large used Alice pack with frame in good condition at Armygear.net for 29.95 plus shipping. Total cost was $44.00 or somewhere thereabouts. I was very pleased with what I received and I got it fairly quick.

I acquired a medium A.L.I.C.E. pack with frame & kidney pad for my B.O.B. (list of contents in the "post your B.O.B." thread) and it's awesome! Plenty of room to work with and it's super comfortable. This was the same one I used in the corps before they switched to MOLLE gear. I've priced them out around $45 to $55 on ebay (used).[ATTACH=CONFIG]1854[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]1855[/ATTACH]

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
       
    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
