The Alice Pack is a battle proven, time tested platform for moving large amounts of gear and supplies. Since these packs are military surplus, they can be found failrly inexpensively at surplus stores and other retailers.
Alice Packs, our choice for Bug Out
The more I use the Large Alice Pack with Frame, the more I realize that this thing is a beast.
The main compartment alone is between 3200 – 3500 sq inches. That is well over 60 liters.
I recently picked up a shelf, for my pack, that will allow me to carry heavy, bulky items using the frame of this pack. I’ll now be able to strap 5 gallon water containers, jerry cans of fuel, firewood and a zillion other things to my frame and pack it back to camp.
The more I learn about this pack and the more I use it, the more I appreciate it’s awesomeness.
