    That's not new - we were doing that with our 3 day bags and rucks in the 70s and 80s. Still yet, you should always double secure the rolls with Ranger rubberbands or I promise you the roll will telescope out at the most inopportune time.

    Here's the thing, I've been told many a time that it's not a new technique, and I never claimed it was as I learned it from someone else. I've just seen tons of people who either don't bother to tidy up their adjustment straps after it's adjusted, or permanently modify them with zip ties or some other method and can't adjust them again without hassle.

    But, thanks for the tip on the ranger bands. You're the second person to recommend this to me so I figure it's worth looking into since I haven't actually used my gear after the straps have been rolled as I just learned this technique a few months ago.

    That's something to keep in mind. I've had a few veterans get sort of ticked off at me because I think something is so great that they believe to be basic and a no-brainer.

    If you have anything else like this, it'd be wise to share it with those who haven't served, as we may not know it and sharing the info with us may save us having to learn something the hard way. It could be life saving.
