Great pack.

I also have a Czech M60 backpack. A bit stinky but it’s pretty spacious, no zips, cheap and sturdy.

Nothing, other than the cheapo stitching on most Chinese made packs, although it is perhaps less of a problem on Western branded packs like the Jansport. Even then, poor stitching is still less dangerous than low quality zippers. Interestingly enough if you look around on AliExpress etc you will see Chinese made packs with prices approaching those of Mystery Ranch ones that are made with a similar level of autism.

I'm talking about a cheapo Chinese backpack from Amazon. I don't know anyone that would think AliExpress first. Also I thought we were talking more daypacks and 3 day packs.

As for pic related, has anyone bought one and tried it? maybe it is decent but without the branding. I've been using more no name brand stuff nowadays and it's been working surprisingly ok.

While this is technically more of a cosplay question, I figure you people would give me a more "authentic" backpack, so to speak. I'm looking for a backpack like OP's pic in terms of shape, but in green fabric, and more square-ish that could accommodate a bed roll on top of it. I'd also like to use it for general hiking, but cosplay is the more pressing matter. I'd be delighted if I could see one under 100 bucks.
Thanks, /out/!

I hear people say this a lot about the ALICE pack. Having used one for many years myself and probably covered thousands of kilometers while wearing one I can say that most likely you weren't wearing it correctly or you had an old one with some worn out padding. A few cost free mods or even new pads and wearing it on your back correctly solves this problem and makes it easy to carry. I'm convinced the only reason our military switched to larger MOLLE packs was because they carry more gear and it was time to renew someone's contract somewhere. I never found the MOLLE pack that much more comfortable and I certainly didn't need to carry that much more gear. I still carry one to this day.
>>
>>1174156
The one I got was from Varusteleka. I'm positive the frame was aftermarket, its solid black instead of green and the straps themselves have no stamping and the fabric and metal aren't the usual military grade stuff. I might get one of those polymer frames since a proper military metal one is as much as the sack itself.
>>
>>1174171

$40 for a new frame with new shoulder straps and kidney pad.

https://www.armysurplusworld.com/new-style-alice-pack-frame-complete

They really don't weigh much. You can get the ALICE pack new or used from there too if you want. The real deal will last decades of hard use, as they were designed to do so. They're not ultra-light worthy, but for normal hiking, camping, and survival I think they're great.

I don't recommend buying a used frame... you won't save much and there's a good chance the rivets will be popped out or it was used hard in the past. Other used parts should be fine if needed.

I really like the look of this pack, but I've only ever used an external frame milsurp one before. If I'm hiking with my own tent, groundsheet, etc, is something like this worthwhile? $75 USD

Would you say a larger pack is a better bet for forests and mountains? I've heard some say frame internal/ext isn't absolutely needed.

You absolute faggot. I have three excellent packs from the 90s, two sierra designs from before they got into retarded names and an osprey vertigo for mountain climbing. They are virtually indestructible. Before this ultralight sheit caught on packs were built to last not to make things easy. If you really want a good pack and you arent and consumerist tard as your op pic suggest, find something pre 2005 on ebay. This is the ONLY good answer
>>
>>1174767
the vertigo is a 2002. I am confident it will outlive me. Dont buy into advertising gimmicks seriously. They INTENTIONALLY make packs shit these days so after one thru/season youll be forced to buy another this isnt conspiracy bullshit it is fact, find something from a reputable brand pre 2005 and itll be buyitforlife

The mat is pretty handy around the campsite.
Although i use it for everything except sleeping

>>1174761
It’s a great deal for the quality it’ll be. For size wise? I’m not sure desu. May be too small. I’d bump up to 50 at the least if you plan on taking longer trips over a couple days

>>1174771
Or, just get an osprey and cash in on the all mighty guarantee?
>>
>>1174845
Fuck Osprey, way over priced. Get a kelty instead. I have a Redwing thats awesome.
>>
>>1174855
Kelty is nice. If I hadn’t gotten an atmos ag for $100 off I wouldn’t have gotten it. I mean the bag will outlast me. Or at least they’ll replace it until I’m dead. May get a smaller redwing so I don’t have to lug around a 65 liter pack all the time.
>>
Great ghost gear griff pack, I love the fuck out of mine
>>
>>1174877
If Osprey was $100 I would rave about them, its not that they are bad. They're excellent, just overpriced imo. Both redwing sizes are great and suprising sturdy for how light they are. I'd get the 32 over the larger sizes if you're looking for a redwing. I have a 50 redwing and I never fill it up even if I carrying enough for two people in one bag.

Zippers are good for some smaller pockets that you won't be opening and closing constantly. Won't bother anymore with bag that only has zippers though. They are more unreliable and I don't want them breaking in a wrong time and place.

And yes, they can be mended, but fuck that hassle.

They do break.

But when working, are noisier than flaps, which rarely break. Stealthiness is a consideration when operating operational oprations, like me.

Certainly less or equally durable as a cheap Surplus backpack.

Might as well get a BW Gebirgsjäger Rucksack with mat and still have at least 10 EUR for other stuff.

Also if you are up to a pricerange of 250USD, might as well go the extra mile and get a Savotta.
