Pack, ALICE, Large, W/ Frame, OG, UKSF Modified & Painted, Used £79.00


Genuine US Army Issue ALICE pack, acquired from UK MOD Disposals.

Single item only.

We believe this item to be ex UKSF, due to the modifications and other kit released with it.

The large ALICE pack is much favoured by UKSF for jungle training and operations, as the external frame provides greater ventilation than PLCE kit, reducing rubbing and bergen rash.

Modifications.

All original external pouches have been removed, and a pair of Berghaus side pockets fitted instead. These are sewn on with the space behind left open at the top and bottom.

A single side pocket from the PLCE 'NI' Patrol Pack has been sewn to the lid, and the lid straps have been fitted with QR buckles.

Liberally daubed with UK issue sand camouflage paint, this is brush painted not sprayed. The modifications and paint job suggest this is 1990's vintage.

This item has a fault on the frame, the centre strut rivets have 'popped' at the top and sides, please see images 8 & 9. This could be repaired or the frame replaced, but as an original and unique collectable it will be supplied as described.

Pack is otherwise as per the standard issue item.

Born of US military Special Operations experience in Vietnam, the ALICE Pack is descended from the ARVN packs initially utilised by MACVSOG and other Special Forces.

Large size, the US equivalent of a bergen. Sits higher on the back than PLCE (similar position to old UK Para/SAS type) avoiding interference with belt kit.

External tubular metal frame, lower back pad/support and waist belt.

Lightweight olive green nylon construction. Approximately 100 litres total capacity.

Large main compartment with separate internal pocket for smaller items.

Draw cord neck, drainage eyelets, numerous loops and straps for attaching extra kit. ALICE pouches, 44 bottle carriers, PLCE utility and MOLLE would all fit (not included).

Pack is not waterproof although lid lining is rubberised. The Nylon material is quick drying. Velcro closed pocket in lid.

Single item only, used condition, damage to frame as detailed above.

Supplied complete with frame, hip pad and straps. Please note these are surplus packs and straps may not be matching sets.
