Complete ALICE Field Pack w/ Frame Straps Belt USMC MARPAT rucksack backpack For Sale
Complete ALICE Field Pack w/ Frame Straps Belt USMC MARPAT rucksack backpack:
New complete MARPAT Woodland Digital ALICE pack with padded shoulder straps, waist belt, kidney pad, heavy duty frame, and the pack itself is made of toughNylonCordura®.These were produced in Germany for another NATO member who then never completed the deal so this a great opportunityto get a never issued NATO grade ALICE pack and frame. Themanufacturersused the USMC MARPAT woodland digital pattern for their design so this woodland pattern isn't an inaccurate reproduction but looks great with your MARPAT cammies. Some of you may remember, and many still prefer, ALICE gear over the new stuff. Used from Vietnam up in to the 2000's, this type of gear has stood the test of time and many were not happy with the switch. Radiomen continued to be issued them while the rest switchedto the newer MOLLE. The reason many still prefer ALICE gear is because of the time and combat tested simple approach to hauling gear and the external ALICE frame is stronger and more robust than most modern packs. You can even remove the pack and use just the frame to haul water, ammo, or even fuel cans!
The enormous main compartment of the MARPAT camouflagedNylonCordura® packfeatures a 34-liter capacity (62 liters total for the pack including all pouches) and closes by means of a drawstring secured by a plastic cord clamp. The top flap has a map pocket with a hook and pile fastener closure and also has an ID pocket with clear plastic window. A radio pocket is located against the back on the inside. There are also 6 outside pockets, three smaller upper pockets and 3 large lower pockets with strap and buckle adjustable closures and with snap fasteners for quick access. Equipment hangers are located above each outside pocket and on each side. Drainage eyelets are provided in the bottom of the main compartment and the outside pockets. Adjustable shoulder straps for a custom fit with perfect load balance. Cushioned lower back pads (a.k.a kidney pad) to give you a comfortable carrying platform and to protect you against shocks while carrying heavy items or hiking through rough terrain. Olive drab belt strap to secure your pack to your waist. The backpack can be used with or without the Field Pack Frame.
New Military grade ALICE packs are hard to find nowadays and these are in an even more rare MARPAT, as this pattern was never used on USMC issued ALICE packs but you can get yours today but be warned because once these are gone they are gone because it was a one time production run that created these packs so they will never be remanufactured.
