    I feel like this pack is a very high value piece of gear so I want to share it with the rest of you. Built for the military so they are very rugged and durable. You just dont have to worry about it. Holds tons of gear, rated for 120lbs. Easy to find for around 60-75 bucks. great for car bag, bob, emergency bag, hunting or camping/hiking. If anyone else has experience with these please share your opinion!

    Whatever happened to a bed roll, mess kit, canteen, ammo belt, gas mask, and a knap sack?

    Back in the 70's, the Infantry vowed to lower the grunt's load. Instead, they developed "Improved" ways to carry more schnitt.

    Humans have not evolved enough to carry more than 40 pounds over extended distances on foot for long times on end. That's why humanity invented draft animals, the wheel, carts, and eventually motorized vehicles.

    Try to hump that 120 pound ruck into the next zip code!

    I never would recommend carrying that much stuff. But you may have to carry lots of weight if you quarter out an elk. And you dont have to worry about busting a hole in it

    I have my old ALICE pack (with frame) and web-gear/harness and am looking to upgrade and the ILBE might be just what I am looking for. Is there a recommended tactical or combat vest (MOLLE or other) that would be used with this?

    I picked one up and its pretty heavy compared to an alice pack but other than that its a great ruck. Very versatile.
