I've been reading articles on the site for a while, but this is my first post!
To make a long story short, my unit was able to wear ALICE style packs since I can remember. However, we got a new Sgt Maj. and apparently we do not "rate" to use them anymore.
I'm looking to essentially modify my USMC main pack with a better external frame. I was just going to use the old ALICE frame off my MALICE pack, but it doesn't fit quite right. I'm wondering if a Mystery Ranch or Kifaru (or something similar) would be feasible. Any other suggestions in terms of brand/styles would be appreciated.
Also, besides going to eBay or MR (etc) are there any good sites to buy used packs/frames.
Thanks for your help!
