Hi, y'all. I just wanted to ask if the ALICE pack is really "all that" for survivalists? I know it's sort of synonymous with the community. You think of survivalists and the first things that come to mind are dudes with a shed full of fruit preserves who wear ALICE packs and carry other Vietnam era gear. But, I've heard a lot of bad things about ALICE. Mainly that it works well enough for very light loads and it's grrrrrrrr-eat for organization, but heavy loads bear down on you, and that bulky loads pull you back. Also, the frame is uncomfortable with any sort of weight. However, there must be some reason that people still use ALICE. Nostalgia maybe? Cost?

Did I just find the most sour, bitter people to talk about the system? After all, most people don't want to hear about how great and awesome something is, they want to hear complaining about something. And, therefore, most people produce content badmouthing more than they talk positively or constructively.

Let's hear y'all's opinion.

It is an extra attachment that can be purchased. It fastens on to the frame after removing the pack....
The technical term for that is a "freighter pack" when the frame has a shelf. That doesn't affect the bag terminology. That's my preferred type of bag. I have one myself, the Bullpac. Wrote a 15 page essay about how great it is somewhere else on this forum.
