The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
Nice to see the ALICE recived an honorable mention in the article. When the MOLLE rucks were first fielded, the black plastic frames would break under their own weight. They were replaced by the "foilage green" frames and seemed to hold up much better. I carried the medium external frame pack in Afghanistan circa 2013 and it was really handy. If you have not seen them, it is the middle point of an assault pack and a large ruck. I have seen a few runing around the surplus market but for collector prices. You can do better for a 72 hour pack for the same money. The amount of MOLLE webbing and weight of the milspec cordura translates to more weight so the pack in the article will not be the best suited for the ultralight user. Modularity and bombproof durability would get it a big fat yes, however.
