Mini-Review of Large Alice Pack
Well I got my Alice pack in the mail yesterday, had to go pick it up at the UPS depot. I got it from Brigade Quatermasters ( www.actiongear.com
). They list them as made in the USA, and its got the military markings all over it, probably cause its from the same supplier. Anyways the pack is new was in plastic, took a whole minute in the dark car ride home to get it assembled to the frame. For 130$ for the Frame and pack who can complain if you got to do some assembly!
First things first, this thing is HUGE. I could fit the man pack Radio inside its special pouch and then still manage to carry a weeks worth of supplies in it! Not that I'd want to carry that much weight though.
The 3 pockets on top, I do not have a magazine handy (cause I still havn't recieved my M1A) but it seems to me like they would fit a M1A magazine each They are bigger then I expected.
All the hardware looks solid, and the webbing straps look like they can handle quite abit more then the cheap straps I have seen in import packs costing some of them more then this one even.
I threw in a few heavy items I had near me once I got home and it feels pretty comfrotable.
Would I buy the same pack agian, absolutly!
