Agreed. But for an assault pack, im going to stick with camelbak. Mine served extremely well and continue its career as a camping pack

I've used an Eagle A-III pack (MOLLE version) almost every day for the past 5 years and it could pass for near-new.

I think I may have the camelbak like tommy. 2 pouches outside the main one. I loved it. That and my spec ops assult bag. Depending on the mission id use either. The camelbak didn't hold as much bit it held up really well. Since its made for the water bladder its more comfortable. The spec ops one has a spot but it moves around inside. As for a rucksack. The new plactic framed ones were way better than that old green stuff. Held more and was more comfortable. But a pain to detach from the frame. I wouldn't buy one to go backpacking with either. Internal frame all the way. Mines from eastern mountain sports (ems) don't know who has a store in their area.

Are any of these backpacks waterproof? I need something that's waterproof but it needs to be a regular military type backpack. I've been looking at the 5.11 Tactical packs. Can't find anything that's waterproof. I really don't want to resort to a PVC drybag.

This is what I use. Mine is medium size with frame. You can find very good to excellent surplus for almost nothing. I'll be dammed if I spend all kinds of scratch on something like that. Yea it may not be the latest but it sure as hell will get the job done and is proven. It is always packed and ready to go.

Sam just line your ruck with a heavy duty trash bag, it's never failed me. I've been in some wet swampy places and my shit always stays dry.

I've been using a TAD gear Litespeed for the past 5 years and really feel like it's the best of both worlds. It has ample storage, but it's small enough to still be maneuverable. The price is up there but the quality is pretty good.

I agree with Undertaker. I mentor at JRTC in Louisiana and use an Alice pack but with a modified frame and shoulder suspension system.

It is the most comfortable system I have used. Ive tried quite a few other systems, but have always gone back to my "FrankenPack". You can find the Filbe frame on ebay or amazon and the shoulder harness can be found on either also.
