Do you already have something like this? Like, do you know how lugging a heavy metal frame around with no padding feels? I would definitely suggest going to an outdoors store and trying a bunch of different packs, they should have ALICE, MOLLE and your usual backpacking packs. I hate buying gear, especially packs and boots without know what it's going to feel like on me. Are you using this for backpacking or is it for prepping?
>>605261 You do realize that the frame doesn't touch your back right? It only does if you're bending over really far like your picking something up, even then it is not a problem. If it's touching your back them you have it adjusted wrong. This brings up another plus of the Alice pack, it allows a ton of airflow between your back and the pack, it is amazing in the summer.
I picked up an old Alice pack with frame for a hiking trip I took in july. Best purchase I could have made I think. I was looking at some day packs on amazon pre trip and most decent sized ones (80l and up) were 60 plus doll hairs.
Went to fleet farm and grabbed one of those for 40 bucks! Couldn't have been happier. Well I do love the molly packs, they will always have a place in my heart, but this one was such a nice size. Long story short, great bag for your buck.
>>605238 The Pack in the picture is a USGI Medium ALICE pack. Don't get the Rothco one, that brand is notorious for low-quality goods. You can get genuine ALICE packs off ebay for cheap, though as has already been said, commercial packs are better if you're willing to pay more.
>>605921 the large one has two sets of pouches in the front, three large ones below and three smaller ones above. >>606400 amazon and ebay have a few, but the prices for bags with frames and straps are disgusting. Next time there's a gun show in your area wander around, even if you don't find an ALICE pack you can usually find something else you need. A lot of vendors at the bigger shows are online sellers who discount their stuff at gun shows to clear inventory.
>>605224 I'll give you a tip, if you get a frame, try to go for one without bars crossing over your spine and upper back, if it crosses your lumbar region, thats fine, after you get the ideal frame (try and find a lightweight option), Fishing Net, fucking fishing net mate, that shit is heaven. Weave it over your frame tight, it provides support and breathability depending on what you wear, but I've been doing it for awhile now and it is incredible, might not be for you but thought you might appreciate it. Also take into consideration your stature, if your a big guy the outer frame may rub against your shoulder blades.
